Tipex Posted February 4, 2013 Report Share Posted February 4, 2013 (edited) It's a bit sh1t isn't it? Every few years or so, I try and give it another go, just to try and grasp what all the fuss the yanks make over it is, and i'm still none the wiser. I watched the superbowl last night, well, the first quarter anyway until I got bored and went to sleep. With the exception of Japan and their sumo wrestlers, America must be the only place in the world where a morbidly obese person can be considered an athlete or sportsman, seriously, 22 stone+? From what I can gather of the game, they spend more time 'not playing' than they actually do playing, and 90% of the 'players' will not touch the ball throughout the whole game. It seems to simply be a vehicle for advertisement, one long 'infotainment' style commercial. I can see very little skill, very little genuine athletic requirement, and very little in terms of tactics, the commentators seem to make randomly generated comments that have little bearing on what's actually happening (very little most of the time), and occasionally scribble some arrows on a picture of the game that bear no resemblance to what 'actually' happens on the field. It is, utter, utter, boll0x. Edited February 4, 2013 by Tipex Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
