Humor Sometimes, while browsing the net for news, I come accross things I just cannot not post. "Some enterprising Austrian Über-geeks [have created] a Telnet stream with, believe it or not, live ASCII footage of matches being played [at the World Cup Football]. Simply fire up a command prompt and type 'telnet ascii-wm.net 2006' and you'll find a live 'video' stream from 10 minutes before kick-off (or should that be boot-up?)." I also look forward to the Wimbledon version that resembles Pong.

What a bunch of arrogant retarded pricks.

The only one displaying arrogance here is you (oh, and adapt as well). Nevermind that you somehow equate insults with arguments - oh well, your comments will disappear from this board to be ignored by all, as it should.

CFL- Canadians are not from the US dipshit.

If you possessed the minimum intellectual capability to read English, you would have noticed that I specifically mentioned that Football was called Soccer in the U.S. and Canada. I should know, I'm Canadian.

In any case, that doesn't change anything from the main issue: the whole world except two countries calls it Football, so that's what its name is. The sport you refer to is American Football, period.

Now tell me, I'm curious, how long have you used insulting people on Internet forums as a substitute for having sex with a woman? Seems like it's been quite a while...I guess you probably don't remember how it goes. Why don't you do yourself a favor and go find out right now?

Ummm no, the whole world doesn't call it football, and even if they did it wouldn't make it right. A few extremely arrogant asshats on this forum decided to start this whole mess. I just corrected it. period.

Most of the world does call "soccer" football. It's not about being arrogant. And it might make it "wrong" in your eyes. But that's a fact. It's not however something worth lowering yourself down to name calling for.

But if it makes you happy, we'll call it "soccer" and we'll call American Football "gridiron". How's that?
