    Default Premier League on NBC

    While I love that NBC is going to be carrying Premier League games, I think the promos for it might be the best part...



    How many countries are in this country? Four.

    Is there a 3rd kind of football... well you'd have to ask the Aussies...

    It was amusing. And perhaps one day Americans will learn to speak properly.

    NFL, NRL, AFL... Oh, and soccer for those who would call it football.

    Hmmph. Soccer is the FIRST kind of football! We just have our population split up into several other codes so we don't win at everything to give the rest of the world a chance. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.

    Don't the Canadians have some version of the sill gridiron game as well? I remember a Canadian explaining the differences to me years ago. They meant little to me then so I didn't remember. Maybe a different field size or something?

    Yes, there are differences between American football and Canadian football. Unfortunately, I don't follow either closely enough to give specifics.
    And now I'll tell you what's against us, an art that's lived for centuries. Go through the years and you will find what's blackened all of history. Against us is the law with its immensity of strength and power - against us is the law! Police know how to make a man a guilty or an innocent. Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told will ever more be paid in gold - against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred and the simple fact that we are poor.

    How could I possibly have forgotten that one?

    Oh good go... that's in the wrong thread.

    Also, not impressed that there's no game today. Stupid international football.
