Foreigners trying to tell me how my country that I have lived in all of my life sees their sports is ignorant in the extreme. You literally have no ******* clue what you are talking about. You have no experience or exposure upon which to base this. I do. I have a lifetime of experience in the culture being discussed and dealing with it's sports fans.

Do you want to know why their aren't other Americans really posting in this thread? Because they don't care about Teixeira saying this and because they know that the soccer fans will come in bitching and moaning about how ridiculous it is.

My original point in this thread - which Soojookoo and GrappleRetarded so gracefully missed in their hyperbole and fan rage - was just this: a fighter thought his sport was going to be bigger in one country than soccer. So what? Every athlete thinks their sport is the best. If you don't you shouldn't be playing.
No one is claiming people are wrong for thinking their sport is the best in the world. You can't seem to understand the difference between thinking your sport is the best, to thinking your sport is the most popular, or will become the most popular.

Popularity doesn't determine how good some thing actually is.

I prefer watching MMA to football. MMA gets my adrenaline flowing like no other sport, yet I can recognise that combat sports like MMA will probably always have a niche audience. To compare it to football in terms of popularity in mine, my kids or my grandkids lifetimes is just ridiculous.

You are basically saying that your country is fitting the classic American sterotype of being ignorant towards other countries and cultures and thinking that only American sports are the biggest in the world. That's what you're saying. You say you're not exposed to football in the US and that you don't broadcast it on TV. Well, we have the exact same situation in the UK with the NFL/American football. No one here watches it, yet we all recognise that it is an incredibly popular American sport. People just know these things.

I personally think you're just full of shit. You also claim to have like 8-10 years of boxing experience and don't have a single photo or video of you ever boxing. I think you're just a billy bullshitter mate.

This is a personal ******* attack. You don't know why I don't have footage do you? No? Of course you don't. It's easier for you to accuse people of lying than ask why they don't isn't it?

And something else I like about this is that he can call me a liar but if I called him a ******* asshole it would be an infraction.

And, yes, I realize I did not mention the former topic but I am done with that topic. I only posted here to voice my protest over this random person calling me a liar with no evidence and about a subject completely unrelated to the topic.

And now Grapple and Soojookoo back to my ignore list.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

"or being a ******* asshole. You don't know why I don't have video and you certainly don't know the culture the way I do. People here only want to see news on a sport if it's one they watch. So no airtime for soccer. Sorry. "

neg rep courtesy of deadman, lol.

He seems to think that this entire discussion is about mad europeans who are angry that football isn't broadcast much on the TV in the states.

I don't think he's had any grasp of this entire debate since the get go.

What's the prize for the 7 game season again? Cause I forgot. What I remember is the 38 game season, you know the one where the last time Tottenham finished ahead of Arsenal O.J was in trial for murder and Batman Forever was number 1 at the box office.

Let the gooners gloat. They know full well the score. They know the gap between themselves and Spurs used to be gigantic. It's not now. That is enough to warm me no end, no matter what the scum ramble on about.

You will never get the chance you had last year again. The way you blew it with 10 points clear and 2-0 up at our ground with a chance to end it all show how big bottlers you lot are. You are forever the little brother in North London, it's in your DNA.

Edit: It occurs to me this isn't exactly on topic.
