    Couldn’ t have said it better, although I don’ t care about disrupted TV schedules as I don’ t watch telly. But all that fuss about men kicking balls about. Incomprehensible.

    Biting people? I find myself really, really tempted sometimes…

      Well if it’s consensual that’s a different matter ; )

        That’s not exactly what was on my mind… though you do have a point 😉

    High fives across the seas, Darl – you and me both, I so totally agree. Thank god the world cup only rolls around every four years.

      It’s just so pervasive! Why aren’t we able to choose something else?

    The thing is that among all the hype and the rubbish and the bad manners and the cheating, football is a wonderful game to play and a wonderful game to watch. It must be the cheapest team sport in the world to play which is a bonus.

      For you maybe. I understand that some people enjoy it but I am completely fed up with the hype and the assumptions that the whole world wants to watch a bunch of overpaid (in most cases) fools rather than care about or enjoy anything else. I personally find football very boring yet on the tv currently they have a campaign which features a cat for those who don’t want to watch the tournament. So patronizing

    I don’t watch sports at all

      Such a pointless thing.

      It’s not a very inclusive thing. Those interested in sports can go ahead but why can’t the rest of us be left in peace.
