PAINFUL TACKLE FOR PLAYER (Soccer - a game played by real men! ;o) )
http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-13437430,00.html ^

A footballer had to have six stitches in his penis after it was ripped open in a tackle.

Chavdar Yankow, 21, sustained a three-inch gash playing for Hamburg 96 in Germany.

His shorts were "soaked with blood" but team doctors managed to patch Yankow up.

Amazingly, after the painful incident Yankow returned to the pitch and played on.

And the German went on to score in his side's 2-0 win over Frankfurt.

Rugby players eat their dead

During a match my friend Skip found himself at the bottom of a Ruck.
Someone either accidentally or intentionally stomped on his head shearing his ear nearly off.
He called for "a minute" as time outs aren't really recognized as we know it.
From the side line came a roll of althetic tape and we taped what was hanging off back onto his head and he played out the rest of the match.

Only after a long night of post match festivities did we finally stroll into the E.R. to have it sewed up correctly.

"Football (soccer that is) is the most popular sport in the world, so it must have something going for it."

It is popular because Turd World Countries need only the men and 1 ball to get a game up!

Fortunately, The U.S. is wealthy enough for most schools, begining at the high school level, can afford the equipment necessary to truly entertain sports fans with the thrills of American Football!

I disagree... I enjoyed the first half, but fell asleep in the second, woke up half an hour later only to realize I had missed absolutely nothing.


I do enjoy soccer sometimes though, and loved watching the Skins beat the Bears 9-7....

As for popularity, the worlds most popular spectator sport is auto racing.

Spectator Sport? Gee, I thought this thread was about those who actually PLAY the game. What kind of man sits and watches someone else play a game? :-)

Actually the thread was about a weenie who ripped up his weenie flaying metric football.

I know of MILLIONS who watch football. Millions watch metric football, too, but

Oh, and I participate, too.

Since I HATE soccer with a passion, and it would be so F'ing funny to watch this dude scream, I'll pay for his lap dance.

The ripping stitches and the look on his face.....PRICELESS!!!

Did this REALLY come from Sky???? Cause the team he plays for is Hannover 96 and not Hamburg. They got it all jumbled up.

Now, I have to go back to the DVR to watch Sportschau completely since I fast forwarded through that game.

Love the old time Frankfurt uniforms though.

World Cup Soccer - 2 hours of chasing the ball around to see 1 (maybe2) goals

I know how to make soccer much more entertaining for those mentally challenged Americans that want to see a lot of points. Just make each goal count for 7 points. So a 2-0 game is now 14-0 victory.... WOW, what a difference it would make. Exciting, huh! Now maybe all of America will watch.

I've tried to watch American football a few time s and just can;t get to grips with it.

There's no flow, no continuity in the game, just long periods of hanging about doing nothing intersperced with brief periods of frantic activity.

I suppose it's a bit like having an affair really.

I suppose ones preference depends mostly on what you've been bought up with.

If I'd been bought up with Gridiron I'd probably favour that.

And I dare say that if you'd watched and played proper football as a child that would be your preference now.

Odd how American football has never really caught on outside of the USA though.

But not odd at all how Soccer is ignored in the USA. Yeah a handful of weenies play it up through college but no one has the patience to actually sit through a game. Heck, we even find hockey to be pretty tame.

Oh, now that's exciting. And atheletic, too. Why it must take six ounces of effort to smash that gas pedal. And you have to sustain that for two hours always turning left (or right).

I hear that football (that's proper football, not American football) is becoming a lot more popular Stateside.

Who knows, with a little encouragement and time, perhaps you'll eventually see the light.

Then we'll start you on cricket.

That'll be a treat for you!

That is a good point when you consider how other US sports have, like baseball, basketball, volleyball, etc. I suppose it's because other countries already have the rough contact niche already filled (soccer, rugby, etc.) This would be a good topic of discussion by itself.

As it happens, high level motor racing drivers are amongst the fittest athletes.

Here in the UK we used to have this televised sports competition called "Superstars" in which athletes from various sports would compete with each other in a range of events. As I recall, boxers, martial arts guys and racing drivers used to regularly do very well in this competition.

Used to be a show like that here, too. Soccer players used to win. (Kyle Rote, Jr., 2 or 3 years in a row)

True. However, are these sports really American? Basketball was devised by a Canadian (although I think he invented it in the USA) Baseball I understand is evolved from rounders, which is an English school game. Volleyball I think is a combination of elements of basketball (Canadian), baseball (English), tennis (France), and handball (ancient Egypt) The only bonefide all American sport that I can think of is is Gridiron.

Actually, a quick Google reveals that Gridiron is actually derived from rugby, another English school sport, and which itself evolved from football (soccer that is)

Is there any popular sport of American origin?

You have obviously never driven anything in competition. I have access to a race vehicle that would make even a well conditioned person turn to jello in about 20 minutes of driving. It's a 250cc shifter kart. It has handling, acceleration and braking capabilities on par with a formula 1 race car. I raced one for time against a bunch of guys with porsches, bmw's and a lamborghini, and my was only 70% of the next closest time at an autocross setup. They all wanted to try the machine, and none could handle the machine on the track longer than 8 minutes without having to pull off the track because their legs were fried, their arms burning from the force requiredto make the turns and their necks ready to snap from the g-force in the turns. All but one of the guys are big-time soccer players who did not have the physical (ATHLETIC) capacity to do what's required to drive a simple (ok, deceivingly not so simple) kart.

You may claim that racers are not athletes, but if you want to go one-on-one racing shifter karts, then play some soccer against me, a not-so-athletic guy, I would bet you crawl home a limp sniveling mess after 20 minutes of the most intense mental & physical workout you have ever had, without even making it to the soccer field.

Man, I am sorry so many people missed my point. What is obvious is if you don't like the sport (soccer, cycling) the participants are sissies. If you like the sport your guys are the fittest (and coolest) atheletes. Then they go into invective, just like a liberal.

Soccer, a game played by 5 year old girls. World Cup Soccer - 2 hours of chasing the ball around to see 1 (maybe2) goals. BORING!


Still, the most popular sport in the world, without to have a 300+pound fat player to smash into another group of 300+lbs opponents without any technical finesse, and ordinary people can participate in, including 5 years old girls running for a full 90 minutes without being supplied with an oxygen mask!!!

Every ball sport in the world is derived from the first prehistoric man who played catch with a stone. What exactly do you mean "American origin"? How is that defined?
