Well I caught a bit of the match on the car radio on the way back from Liverpool. Actual it was mostly a conversation with the actor John Cussack about his stay in London and his latest films. This conversation was much more interesting than the sparodic commentary.

 

When I got home I sat and watched the last 6 minutes ofthe game which went on for half an hour or so.

 

The Dolphins kept throwing the ball away and getting it back for another go, time after time. I just don't get this game at all :D who have respect for great turf.

It can be very gripping to watch so long as you accept that it is AMERICAN FOOTBALL NOT SOCCER OR RUGBY LEAGUE OR UNION!!! The point is it's a different game with it's own rules (mainly designed, I think, to suit TV :D:D

Mainly designed for mega rich opportunists who buy a franchise to give them street cred, played by totally unfit fragile posers who need padding to make them brave and oxygen after an amazing 6 metre run. If there is a more tedious sport I have yet to find it.

It's regular season Mary. It was a poor game, but then Giants/Dolphins is a very poor match up this season anyway. Impossible to get tickets, so kind of pleased it was a stinker of a game.

:wink:

Hey Ya'll...

Don't knock American Football! I don't knock yours. They are just 2 very different games. It isn't anymore difficult to understand than the offsides rule (think that's what it's called anyway, can you tell I don't watch football?). And no it is not made for TV. The best way to watch the game is on a Friday night at a local high school with a cup of hot cocoa! God, I miss that. My hubby and I were quite excited that it was played here. Maybe it will catch on-- I miss this game.

There isn't one that I know of.

My girls (and guys) don't cheer for american football. We are all-star which means we compete across the UK, US, and now we've been invited to Europe!! Yeah!!

Just have to get these teams full now. Pass the word. The 6-9 year olds and 10-13 year olds start in Jan and I'm registering now. The 14-17s and 18-21s have Try Out Camps in Jan.

Thanks,

Christy
