    The same could be said for americans who find the number of threads regarding "football" (soccer...) to be a nuisance.

    I would not have thought so as in reality there is and always has been only one sport FOOTBALL it is an insult that we should have to call it soccer simply to appease americans as they have a handbag sport that they call soccer

    It was called Soccer in the UK years before American Football was invented.

    Let me know when you can either think of a vaguely intelligent response for the discussion or at the very least a decent insult.

    The fact you fly that flag brings mercy as it is a big enough of a burden without my attempting to add to the cross you carry daily 😛

    Well - lets be fair here.

    Football is a global sport and Americans seem to have a lot of games that are consumed only by Americans.

    American Football, Baseball, Ice Hockey, the elections

    All fun for a bit of a laugh but the rest of the world doesn't really care ...

    I tried watching the superbowl once but I didn't enjoy the sport interupting all my advert watching.

    Cripes.

    I bend over backwards to call American Football NFL or Grid Iron... and some want to break it up? Why? I weed through thread titles like Arsenal to get to REAL sports talk.

    The last thing Russ or Chris want is another forum, they've always been reluctant to make new ones. When you click a thread, if it's not your topic just leave the thread. I find it quite easy to see what threads are enjoyed by US users, what threads are not, and some threads are actually enjoyed by people on 'each side of the pond'.

    Ice hockey is hardly an American sport.
