I'm sorry my ranknig skills are totally superior to yours. I guess you could say, I outrank you.

Yes. Rugby league is rugby for pansies, and American football is league for pansies.

Despite the fact we conquered the world at golf, it remains as boring as watching grass grow.

I do agree that baseball is reeeeeally boring, but American Football, or as we call it in America, Football, as well as basketball are great sports. I suppose the Brits and all their silly little "commonwealth" friends don't have much of an empire left, so they have to hold on to their imagined superiority in the sports world. Such a sad story.

Oh if this turns into one of those threads...
The fact that Americans actually like their sports says a lot about their taste - or total lack thereof.

The worst name I've ever been called is Australian, so second rate Australian is a backhanded compliment really.

If NI isn't its own country then what do I call you?

you laugh now timothius, but what you don't know is that in 48 hours we're invading n. ireland and claiming it as the 52nd state! (see puerto rico will be number 51, but we need an even number to make the flag all nice and pretty).

axver, the fact that you still play rugby says a lot about your level of "civilization" ....or lack thereof.

Sometimes I forget that my Auckland heritage gives me the right to veto anything you say.

That's civilisation. Learn to spell.

While you're at it, learn what civilisation IS. It certainly isn't a bunch of pansies wearing motorbike helmets and twenty pillows stopping every five seconds for a breather. Real men playing eighty minutes of flowing rugby football is what civilised countries play for sport. I'm sorry that America isn't civilised enough to join us and play civilised Commonwealth sports.
