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":

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.

That argument would make sense in other sports like baseball, basketball or hockey where there are major leagues outside the US, but it is silly for a sport which is confined to the US and (to a far lesser extent) Canada.

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.

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.

(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.

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.

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.

Correct. But even the baseball World Series has its origins in a newspaper called The World which sponsored the first contests back in 1903 and for several years thereafter.

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.
