    And not only that, but also violence from the players and coach/manager be it verbal or physical. That's a major problem in foorball nowadays. Just take a look at the El Classico in the Spanish Primera Liga and you'll know. Another problem with the sport at least where English football is concerned is the ultimate bane known as gay referees... >_<

    tbh tho, I think met is just joking around on the violence part. Violence in sports basically means all the shit that happens outside the scope of the rules, so martial arts and sports of similiar nature can't be counted as violent. At least that's what I think. ;)

    So which team will you support in this year's Euro, Dragn9? I could have supported England, but McClaren screwed the team. So I guess it's pretty likely that I'll support Portugal when the time comes. Yeah, you know, Big Phil lol! :D

    Oh yeah I wanted to ask you people what are your predictions about this year's Euro.

    Greece won the Euro 2004!:D

    It was one of the most exciting tournaments I've ever seen and definetely one of the most breath-taking!I remember how we still celebrated for months after that summer!Hahahaha!

    It was really amazing!

    tbh tho, I don't think Greece will be able to defend the crown this year since the other teams knew more or less about them now. And I'll have to say that when Portugal lost to Greece in the final, I was like wtf just like each and every other neutrals... :S

    Hell yeah, Portugal all the way man. You don’t grow up Portuguese and not support the team :D I would have been disowned......When the games are on the world stops for us....we all swarm to one person’s house to watch them...we’re freakin maniacs...lol....It sure is stressful watching the games though....and yeah Scolari better take them all the way....


    That is a touchy subject...lol.....it was a big WTF when that happened...not that I was biased or anything o_O...lol....

    I think american football is the most fun. Run fast, move out of the way, and hit hard. It's definitely the most intense. Most of the others on the list are fun too though.

    Are you talking about England since you live in London? If so, only one answer to this shit: England always takes a shitty jinx in penalty shootouts right into the face for N years. tbh, it's so ridiculous, every non-England fan would end up laughing at this stupid phenomenon one way or another... :S

    No, just Portuguese heritage. The place I come from is an ex-Portuguese colony, so we have a lot of Portuguese tradition, and well you can see where I'm going (probably got a bit of blood somewhere in me lol).

    I wish there;d been an "other" choice. I would definently say i prefer Mixed Martial Arts, i.e. the UFC, over any other.

    Err... all nations that matter have a decent soccer team.

    No-brainer, this one.
