    OT:Football Fans?

    I know its offseason for the NFL but I was just wondering if they're many football fans on the SPF. My favorite team is the Buffalo Bills (I live in Buffalo NY) and I'm looking forward to next year.

    Soccer is the game of the Dutch. There are some Football teams in the Netherlands but most of us prefer soccer (and speedskating :D )

    Living in Sweden, the games that are shown on TV is kinda... limited. But I tend to watch Super Bowl every year since I find the sport really interesting. I really like the whole idea of talking tactics and then a short play etc...

    Playing Madden 05 like mad too as the Minnesota Vikings. So there you have my fav team too. If there was more games on TV i would watch more NFL than I am now :)

    Same here. I don't like the sport, where there is 2min talking, 10 seconds action. The same for baseball. Ice-hockey and volleyball rule.

    Yea, ive watched some games before, and it seems just like 3/4 of the time is spent talking, or getting ready to play. It seems alot of the USA dominated sports are like this. basketball is the exception, and i quite enjoy watching it.

    It's beer and a damn good one too :)

    That's the best part. I really like guessing what they will try to do next and what kind of ideas they have up their sleeves :)

    I live for college football, and the NFL. The 8 months of the year it isn't on just means more time for D2. The Dolphins are going to pwn jooooooo!!!

    Football is THE sport on the planet. Hockey is a close second. Personally, I love to play volleyball (2-3 times a week usually). I am a huge Chargers fan, they are going to do great things this year!!

    The Vikings sooo rule. Any team that can trade Randy Moss and still compete offers total pwnage over lesser teams.

    football?

    pfft.

    Lose the pads and helmets, play offense AND defense, quit taking timeout every play to figure out what you're gonna do next, and it might be worth watching.

    Gimme a good game of rugby or league any day :D

    Fully agree. Rugby involves the same forces and collisions, yet all the padding they have is a shirt. 7" thick steel plates and a titanium helmet, rugby players would laugh at that, then slap them round the face.
    Plus, rubgy isnt totally commercialised.

    Still compete?? I don't recall seeing the Vikings play without Randy Moss yet, so who knows if they can compete. :D

    I am a huge Cardinals fan... this year we are so winning the division... okay it will be a really bad division, but fans of notoriously sucky teams cannot be picky.

    I love cricket and hockey more than football though.
