SOCCER - DEATH BY DEGREES

Jakartass is one of those soccer tragics..which explains his socialist leanings..Nil all draw being an acceptable outcome for human endeavour..

The Stump however thinks besides being the most boring sport on the planet..(Let's play a game for two hours and play a different game for ten minutes at the end to see who wins..WTF) Soccer Stinks and has proof.

Stump, Couldnt agree more - loosly paraphrasing what David Parkin once said of basketball .."it would be a good game if they started at 85 all and played for 5 minutes..." could to a lesser extent apply to soccer, but at least start at 1 all, although it probably wouldnt make any difference. You may be interested to know that the World's Greatest Game is being played in the AFL Middle East League with teams in Doha, Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, our local team is the Mighty Doha Kangaroos. Just thought you might like to know. Cheers, PaulRB Doha.

Paul,

Mate, pleased to hear it..we also have vibrant comp of real football here as well..You may have heard of the Jakarta Bintangs, Borneo Bears. In fact we had a team over from Dubai for the bali round robin just recently and there is another in OCT (Got an email and I will flash you the details). Here's some fun reading in the meantime..

That sounds like the very boring five day loaf around in the sun so-called sport of cricket.

At least there's time for a decent kip.

You are aware that you can have your British and Commonwealth (and should)citizenship withdrawn for such comments..

Sometimes J, the stump is not sure how long we can support your flirtations with the dark side.

I suggest at least 5 days of standing in the sun, wacking the willow as probably the only way to save your soul at this juncture.
