Skip to comments.Piers Morgan Scoffs at 'Ravens Being Declared World Champions
Posted on 02/04/2013 6:04:20 AM PST by chessplayer
CNN's Piers Morgan is apparently trying to get another petition started to have him deported.
Shortly after the conclusion of Sunday's Super Bowl, he tweeted, "Got to laugh at Ravens being declared 'World Champions' of a competition only American teams enter":
Has anyone so mediocre ever been so arrogant?
can anyone say attention whore?
You know, that offends me more than his other statements. Just reflects his anti-Americanism.
He needs to send his world champion football team to play our game.
He should go back an poop in his own cage.
He needs to send his world champion football team to play our game.
Oh Piers... I’m sure you’ll be touting that Rugby sport of yours as being soo tough. And while it is tough. The speeds that these nfl players play at is far greater than any rugby team could imagine. Take the pads off the players in one NFL game and you will have 5+ fatalities.
Hey, Piers... you and the horse you rode in on! If anyone has ever doubted that all the flack on football being dangerous/violent/anti-female/fill in the blank isn’t a direct hit on a sport that is truly AMERICAN vs global.. this is the perfect example.
"World Championships" need to be decided in competitions played by All-Star teams ("Dream Teams") from different nations, not by a league championship for club teams from cities all in one country.
Besides, it’s called the Super Bowl, not the World Series. The prick should hold off his comments til baseball season to make any sense. There is not official title of “World Champs” in football. He’s an idiot.
This guy has that European attitude that he’s more sophisticated, enlightened, and intelligent than those backwards, Bible thumping Americans. Leftists also have that attitude towards conservative Americans. Piers is a leftist European given a platform to spew his attitude every night on a major news network. I say we let a Piers find a team of people in Europe who he thinks can beat the Ravens and pit them up against each other. I’d watch.
You are right. In a theoretical sense, American Super Bowl winners are not “world” champions. But there is a time and a place for everything and Morgan saying this now is like telling a bride she looks fat on her wedding day. It may be true but you don’t say it.
By this standard you couldn’t have a “World Champion” unless every single country competed and if only Monaco (Size: 0.8 sq. mi. Population: 35,657) refused to enter then you’re screwed.
Guess as AMERICAN’s we need to boycot his sponsors, maybe then he will go away.
Go home where you think you understand things.
World’s largest polar bear. Wait, not possible, because polar bears don’t live everywhere on earth, yet... there aren’t any larger polar bears in Jamaica are there?
Remember how for decades the leftists told us that we have to respect other cultures, beliefs and ways of life? That we were “ugly Americans” for going to other countries and looking down on them? Seems they certrainly feel free to bash us every chance they get. Perhaps we should start calling Piers “an ugly Englishman”?
The funny thing about this jerk is that on his worst day he’s only twice as smart as the bat-eared-b*stard.
It’s debatable if there is life on other planets but that doesn’t change the fact that Piers Morgan is universally hated.
Is anyone really doubting that the best NFL team is the best football team in the world? Whether there are foreign teams in the league or not, it is pretty much a given that there are no better teams anywhere outside the U.S. Therefore the title World Champions seems appropriate.
If I invent a game that nobody else plays in the world, no matter how poorly I play it, that makes me World Champion.
Piers needs to go back to England and take his brothers Boardwalk and Docks with him.
(Blackboard theory here, not picking a fight). Refusal to enter is an "entry." So the above example does not hold.
Clarkson likes to beat up on Americans but he doesn’t really mean it. He was in the USA over new years and was talking about how great it was that he could go to a shooting range, rent a gun, and spend a few hours shooting without having to send a DNA sample to the queen.
So then is failure to apply.
Who is Piers Morgan?
I scoff at anyone with a silly first name like Piers.
Correct. A gray area would be failure to apply due to negligence. Which could happen, in theory, but not likely.
I thought CNN was cleaning house, why’s this guy still around?
Piers Morgan needs a daily urinalysis.
Get it? World Cup?
Who gives a flyin' fug about Cricket?
Clarkson is all in good fun (like how he says we all wear cowboy hats, eat cheese, and drive mustangs). Much of what he says, we all say here ourselves too. A lot of people just don’t like someone across the pond pointing it out. We don’t need a limey telling us we are turning into a fat, honey boo boo society. We know it. :)
I don’t think your example is as good as you think it is.
That’s the way to talk.
Stop blasting this Brit POS and start blasting the a-wipes that hired him.
Without a job he is just another alien in America who should be deported.
Britain is free to field a baseball team or football team if they could compete at the same level.
The Japanese which are the only country even close to competing at our level eventually sends all their best players to the Major Leagues for a reason and it ain't just salary.
You can name Hall of Fame class players born in the Netherlands (Bert Blyleven), Japan (Ichiro Suzuki), Dominican Republic, Cuba and other countries, but I can't name a single one from Great Britain.
What does Piers Morgan know about American football? Not long ago, I actually heard him say that the “football” he likes is played with a round ball. It’s a safe bet that he doesn’t know a touchdown from a touch back or a pass play from a punt.
And lets not forget that we’re all fat because we eat 40 lbs at a sitting. LOL
Sadly, he’s completely correct that American cars are mostly crap.
I suppose we could set up a playoff between the NFL champion and the Canadian Football League champion. Common rules for the game could be set because the NFL and CFL have some different rules. Canada is the only other country that plays football the way the US does.
The b@stard is knee deep in it now! Is he trying to p@ss EVERYONE off?
I think that is precisely the distinction that many fail to understand. Britain is not free to field a baseball team. MLB would not allow it.
As for the World Baseball Classic? It's a joke, because the best MLB players don't play.
All right, Piers, so which team from overseas that plays American-style football would you send up against the Ravens to determine the real world champion? The Molasses of Asnières sur Seine, France? Poland's Poznań Kozly (Goats) or Czerwone Byki (Bulls)? The Donetsk (Ukraine) Scythians?
MLB would have nothing to say about it. Japan, South Korea and Taiwan (just to name three) all have very healthy professional baseball leagues in their respective countries. While they could not compete at the MLB level, the Japanese are at least getting very close.
I have personally met the Japanese Commissioner of Baseball in a previous life on a business matter and he told me they have a very good working relationship with their MLB counterparts. For instance, MLB will send an all-star or World Series champion team to play their Japanese counterparts every November or December. Every game is a sell-out and nearly every game is competitive, though the American side generally wins two-thirds of the games. At one time, the figure was close to 100%.
So to tweek your example, the game would be between teams made up of the best Canadian gridiron players (whether they play in NFL or CFL) vs. the best American players (again, either from NFl or CFL, though clearly at this point they would all be from the NFL).
