You might as well just make a Denver Broncos thread and Other Sports thread if you're going to go that route, but don't call the soccer thread the football thread. That's a major slap in the face to anyone living in Denver. We take football more seriously than any other sport here.

Relax Seph, it's just soccer. Don't take it so seriously.

This board needs a separate thread for five people to talk about soccer?

I live in Colorado and I don't give a utter damn what throwball fans think about the word "football" and how it can be mistaken for another sport. Football is played throughout the world, the that world refers to the sport as "football" as I do.
So are the Avs and Arsenal...

Back on topic...

Anyone know where I can get streams of some soccer/football (to make everyone happy ) games? Don't usually get a lot of games on TV here unless it's the World Cup.

Compromise - we could call it the Seph thread, since this is a personal agenda for you somehow to replace the Broncos with a team 1,000 miles away from us.

This is a Colorado Avalanche section. In Colorado people call it soccer.

So call it soccer, not football, because soccer is not the 'wrong' name, it's just the name people call it here.

If you are with people or in a setting where majority call it football, call it football. It's that simple.

So to get this started, Bale apparently wants to talk to Real.

Soccer is definitely the wrong name.
You damn Americans...

No seriously.
Football = 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win

American Football = 60 minutes, athletic freaks on steroids, too many commercial breaks, all about the quarterback...


Seriously. I love both sports. But writing soccer feels so ******* awfully wrong. Seriously Americans!!!



Bale is not worth 90 M at all. But he will get it. If Spurs are willing to sell, Perez will pay it...
And I will start punching old ladies if Bayern really is after David Luiz. We don't need more players Pep!!! Stop ruining our chemistry!!!

Ill miss watching Bale if he leaves the premier league because his ability to pull a goal out of no where is similar to Ronaldo's. His pace makes him a threat on the counter and means you cant get to tight to him but as soon as you drop of him his ball striking means he can score from anywhere within 25 yards. The combination is what makes him so hard to defend.

On the other hand as an Arsenal fan (my team is actually coventry city but I follow Arsenal) it will be good to see him go as I cant see spurs challenging for the top 4 without him. He's probably not worth 90 million but he will definitely have an impact if he moves.

I actually like that idea , but seriously besides your personal agenda of who deserves the name football, how many posts will you honestly have here?

Guess what, there are people besides me in Colorado who call it football. What about themz or does that break your logic? :p

I know I am acting like a ******, but it is ******** when people are coming in here who do not watch football at all and propose their idea on what this thread should be named. And do not think I am biased because I proposed the word Futball as well. Soccer is just such a Americanized term for a sport that Americans don't give a damn about, that is what I think of the word soccer and prefer it to be changed.

They are talking about 120€mil or 100mil pounds, so it's getting crazy.

I sure hope he doesn't go to Real. That would make Real threat to Barcelona, but would be probably amazing football games, Neymar and MEssi vs Bale and Ronaldo. uuhh!

Nope, but I will continue to call it soccer until it becomes more popular than football in the states. When that happens I will gladly start calling soccer futbol and football American football.

So in other words, I will never call soccer futbol.

Well I don't know what you guys want!

I was unaware (or just plain forgot) that Frenchy told you guys that Soccer/Football talk was cool in the OT thread.

Whether or not people agree, America when people hear "Football" they think of American Football, which is not how the rest of the World sees it. When Americans hear "Soccer" they think of what the rest of the world calls "Football".

So my worry was that if I called this the "Football/Futbol/Soccer thread" that some people who wander in here would talk Denver Broncos in here and that's not what the thread is supposed to be about...

:sigh:

Perhaps we should just move it back, I'm an idiot.

RL my man I'm just messing with you on the title, I honestly couldn't care less. Although I do prefer the lounge because it mixed talking nonsense with everyone and football with the selected few.
