"NFL football is a stupid jerkwad sport"
...played by a bunch of very rich, stupid jerkwads...I guess 'rich' outweighs 'stupid' for many.

(Some famous coach was asked once what it took to succeed in coaching football. He replied,(paraphrased)"Well, you have to be smart enough to work out all the complex factors in planning plays and managing players....and dumb enough to think it's all worthwhile.")

How many people make a living out of pro football? Many, many hundreds of thousands, from the food stalls to the newspaper, TV and publicity people to the clothing makers (jersey-T-shirt etc.) to the construction workers who build the stadiums to the transportation companies etc. etc.

Now take the equally stupid pro soccer (football outside of N. Am.) "game" and add the even larger number of people who depend on it in one way or another for their livelihood and the answer is millions

Our guest Joe is one of our best trolls, starting many a pointless topic in an obnoxious manner.

It's not so much what the title of the thread says, but i just don't find it a compelling sport anymore. Perhaps it's because it's hard to know if there really is a person encased in those uniforms. All the padding makes them look three times as big (wide) as they really are. But mostly it's the headgear...helmets with multiple bars and a dark visor that looks like a space helmet, making it impossible to really see the player.

Watching basketball, baseball, football (soccer), and hockey(except for the goal keeper) allows one to actually see and recognize the participants. And except for baseball, these sports allow for pretty much continuous a.ction

It's all been said and done on various previous threads. But... again... If ya played and had fun ya live it vicariously by watching it on the TV in yer old age. If ya understand the sport it can be entertaining. If ya didn't and don't (any sport), well, whatever... but shittin on it just shows yer own misunderstanding and, well, intolerance in a way. I mean, why bother? Ya got nuthin better ta do?

Sorry if that seems harsh, but, really, why bother?

I am deeply offended and enraged that a scum bag like Michael Vick still has a career after the abuse, and horrors he inflicted upon defenseless animals. It is rewarding him, saying don't do that you jerk, on the one hand and then telling him don't do it again, mikey, you naughty boy, on the other, and then sending him back to the playground.

There is more thought in that opening post than I have ever read from this particular thread starter. You have hit a new high and quite outdone yourself, Josepp.

Notice the alliteration in the stark yet poignant soundbite-sentence: In case you care. To some, the period missing in the thread title may be perceived as an error, but people who see more deeply will recognize it as a poetic 'come hither'.

There is little else to say except BRAVO, Josepp, BRAVO, for we who are about to puke salute you.

I don't wish to argue the relative merits of the two sports but this business about pads and helmets making American football sissified is a myth. The pads and helmets actually serve as offensive weapons. You can lay a lot deadlier hit on someone without damaging your shoulder if its cushioned and covered in hard plastic.

I don't know why I picked the NFL--it's really football at any level. It's a sport for rednecks and ghetto-hoppers. It's a game where poor sportsmanship is rewarded as long as it's as ostentatious as it is pointless. It's a game where it's really about the audience and hence all the face paint, cheesehead hats, tailgate parties, shirtlessness in freezing weather, etc. The players are just tokens put on the field to reflect the fan mentality. It's game where winning has no importance outside of rubbing it in as mean and nasty as you can to the losing side but with classless pop culture cleverness. "You mad, bro?"   

This game should be outlawed just for being stupid.

Those lsted were not gunfighters (which was an invention of the motion pictures), but were law enforcement officers, or participated only in one or two affairs. No more deserving of the gunfighter appelation than Aaron Burr, who shot Hamilton in a duel.
Even Billy, the cowboy who killed two men following the Lincoln County War, was never a gunfighter, professional or otherwise.

No, technically they were shootists or shooters. And folks like Clay Allison were not particularily good people. You should check them out. The absence of Henry "Billy the Kid" McCarty is deliberate; he wasn't exactly middle-aged when Garrett (who was shot dead while mictruating) shot him.

I was watching "sons of guns" you know the red jacket gun smiths on TV. Anyway they are friend with the kicker for the NO Saints. They had a bet, the saints kicker would practice field goal kicking and the one guy had to blow up the football with a shotgun before it went through the goal post. The kicker won ..

Now that is a sport, football with guns LOL

Penelope Rutledge would agree with that, Chuck. Polo is indeed a patrician and magnificently classy sport that embodies all the noble virtues and skills which are inherent in establishing and maintaining an imperial order based upon industry, enlightenment, law, and good taste.

Football, in comparison, is a tawdry and tasteless spectacle.

Only about NFL, mind.

Doesn't include the magnificent sporting spectacle that is Rugby Union Football, a game played by real men, a game whose finer points and chivalrous conduct are appreciated only by gentlemen and ladies of high degree.

But still a worrying trend, agreeing even once with him.
