I'm with Verity. I thought this was talking about proper football, not rugby! If that were the case I would be dreading it. I don't mind rugby though. It doesn't interest me, but I can watch it without it feeling like it is a punishment.
Not at all. It's 'Aussie Rules' where I live.
TV/radio, news,will soon be full of hamstrings,men behaving badly, the week's fave boy kicking a piece of leather, and naturally his partner, who is a model,celebrity
..... and the word hero will be used a lot. Luckily even our offspring and friends aren't interested.
I do like watching distance running tho, and
x country horse/riders, so I'm not totally anti sport.
I'm a huge fan of the North Qld Cowboys and am pretty excited about footy season - hoping to get away to Townsville for some camping and catch a game. I hate footballers, but don't mind watching the game...go figure!
Couldn't care less - waste of good tv space and football games and footballers are such a hugely over-rated item - bring the game back to normal; fair wages for a good player but none of the absurd millions - I won't be watching!
