    I can't understand how they get anything DONE in football... every 3 seconds they all fall over and stop the game. Just don't get it.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Because I'm a glutton for punishment I guess, last fall, I did an experiment where made myself watch a couple of games. I wanted to really understand what all the hype was about. I studied up on the rules and strategy (yes, football has strategy. They don't make the draftees take an intelligence test for nothing).

    I think my original dislike of the sport was largely because I didn't fully understand the rules and strategy. I still don't understand everything (I think the official NFL rule book is like 500 pages or so).

    So now I actually like watching football now and then. I think it also helped that last fall when I did my experiment, my team, the Vikings, were actually winning most games. But I'm not a fanatic about it. I don't understand that aspect of it.

    I saw the title of this thread, and I assumed you meant Football proper, not the ridiculous version of Rugby, where the players are too soft and wear ludicrous amounts of protective gear.

    As this is an attack on the ridiculous game, which stole the name of the Planets greatest sport, I approve.

    Oh can anyone tell me why you call Baseball the World Series, when no one outside of North America gives a shit?

    Soccer is great, the american version (why is it called FOOTball?) not so much. The tactical side might be interesting if I would delve into it more.

    Because we don't give a shit about the crap the rest of the world plays, and most of the good foreign players play on our teams anyway, so its truly a World Series for us.

    You aren't human if you dislike Football. I can understand apathy, but outright dislike? Must be a UFO dwelling critter.

    You got that backwards, but, close enough.

    It's really easy for indifference to turn into hate when people inflate a game to be more than what it really is. It makes even less sense when it's a game that people are watching and not playing.
