What sport ends with closing ceremonies and no MVP? The Olympics. Bah! Time to move on to real sports... like football! And I don't need to say "American" before "football."

Football season begins in less than 3 weeks. I need to start practicing with mock drafts for my fantasy football league. I've gotta plan my first tailgate to the USC opener against the Rainbow Warriors of Hawaii (yeah, I know that Hawaii dropped the "Rainbow" from their team name, but I haven't.) Are you happy that football season is underway -- or are you sad that the Olympics are over?

Forget synchronized equestrian trampoline shooting. Does your team make our list of gold-medal storylines? Peter Schrager explains. The heck with the Olympics, its time for some ... Football!

    Don't watch American football, I only really pay attention to World Football. Euro Championships were entertaining, can't wait for world championships.

    "World Football" or "Soccer" is boring as hell.
  • Rave LissFir... 2012/08/16 05:23:36
    I find American football mundane and boring, I think it all depends on what you grew up on.

    American football fans are the worst sports fans in existence.

    Thank you. I hope you have a great time the next time you are at a game in South America or Europe or ........... well you get the idea.

    Because painting your face pretty colors, getting drunk and yelling at a TV screen at a game where a bunch of big buff guys rub against each other is SO much better.

    At least American Football players don't fall over like sissy girls when they're touched pretending to be hurt.
  • luke LissFir... 2012/08/16 03:38:17 (edited)
    Riots caused by American football fans have killed spectators in the past. Rowdy University of Wisconsin fans, pissed after losing a game, rioted and trampled many spectators who had fallen down trying to leave the fray. Numerous other instances of death caused by rioting football fans have occurred. American football players have so many maxi-pads on they rarely ever get hurt. That's why we call it "Rugby for pussies."
  • LissFir... luke 2012/08/16 03:52:55 (edited)
    Okay, read the article about the "Rowdy University of Wisconsin Fans" rushing the field. Not ONE SINGLE PERSON was injured in October 2010. Not even one. Oh sorry, sprained ankle. No one died.

    In 1993, that one did produce some injuries, but again, no one died.

    The full article from the Journal Sentinal out of Milwaukee WI is here http://www.jsonline.com/news/...

    Also, I looked up "Number of deaths caused by soccer riots" just ONE had 79 deaths alone. How are soccer fans better? Seriously. One riot alone kills 79 people??!?!?

    Most riot of soccer fans I see, people throw trash on the field, go about hitting law enforcement and each other. They genuinely look like crazy people
  • LissFir... zeldama... 2012/08/16 06:32:33
    Because Soccer fans NEVER do that. Noooo. BS
  • zeldama... LissFir... 2012/08/16 08:12:14
    I never said soccer was better. They are on the same level in terms of the fan base (even though I actually enjoy playing soccer). They are talking about how american football is better.

    Yeah, we need to learn from the pros
  • LissFir... luke 2012/08/16 03:17:54
    At least we don't riot and kill one another. Yeah. Worst, except for soccer fans, who crowd the field, riot, and bring death and destruction.
  • luke LissFir... 2012/08/16 03:31:54 (edited)
    Americans have rioted over American football.

    Oakland Raiders, 2003.
    University of Minnesota Gophers, 2004
    University of Oregon, 1973
    Denver Broncos, 1998
    Brigham Young University, 1896

    Amongst many others (There was one riot at a Wisconsin Badgers game that caused the trampling death of numerous spectators, but I cannot recall the date.).

    Geaux Saints and LSU!!!!!!
  • Fef Cancer-... 2012/08/15 22:37:35
    Saints... OK. But LSU -- over-rated! I would love to see any PAC-10 team play Les Tigres.

    Hey buddy, FIRST that was Sexy Rexy behind the center as QB last year. Now we have RG3 and he'll run Ray Ray's old butt in the ground. SECOND, I don't hate the Ravens (Battle of the Beltway) because your team is like having a distant cousin. :) Good Luck to the Ravens! :)

  • Smokey Chris -... 2012/08/16 17:36:34
    I'm not a Raven hater either. I sunk to the floor when the Ravens lost to the Patriots last year! Man that was close. I hope you guys go far this year!!!!
  • Chris -... Smokey 2012/08/16 17:50:52
  • Smokey Chris -... 2012/08/16 17:53:32
    I have a feeling it might be either Green Bay or San Fran vs. the Ravens in the Super Bowl! The Giants will NOT get that lucky this season!
  • Chris -... Smokey 2012/08/16 17:56:37

    Actually I could care less about sports in general as I find them all boring. Much prefer to get out and go do something of interest.
  • Callaway 2012/08/15 12:12:18
    Happy for college ball to start not so much the NFL anymore with all it's endless nonsense.
