Donít like the Patriots, but absolutely detest the scum of the NFL from Philadelphia.

So for that reason I hope the Pats win

Always thought it strange that people would read a thread on a sport they donít like and then feel the urge to tell everybody they dislike said sport

You find it odd that on a forum someone starts a discussion and people reply with their own opinions?

Completely agree.  Spot on.

Contributions are one thing but it's the people who let you know that they have nothing to say who really make the difference.

I'm always on the lookout for forums on topics where I'm completely apathetic (ballet, pot-holing and darts are particular favourites) so I can inform everyone on there that I have absolutely no interest in the subject.  I'm constantly disappointed by the lack of gratitude I get in return.

A classic example is yesterday's Lincoln match thread.  It was clearly quite a game and Peter Venkman & others taking the trouble to post updates and insights during the game for the benefit of those unable to attend is just about alright, I suppose, if you like that sort of thing.   

But imagine if a complete stranger had made the effort to point out that they hate football, don't support Lincoln or Swindon, hadn't a clue what the score was and couldn't give a toss?  That would really have brought the thread to life.

Happens pretty much every year.

I actually am quite intrigued by American Football, the tactical plays etc, but I just canít watch a whole game, itís too stop start and too many breaks.

I have started to watch the highlights and I think itís a good sport. The breaks and razzmatazz is symptomatic of yank sports and itís not really anything I can embrace personally.

That said, the New England Patriots coach seems to be a bit of a legend.

No doubt about it. The best way to watch it is to record the game and watch it back without knowing the score so you can fast forward the never ending breaks. Can be infuriating when you are watching live though. I think you actually have to train yourself how to watch games and get yourself accustomed to it.

Donít like the Patriots, but absolutely detest the scum of the NFL from Philadelphia.

They seem to be the Millwall of the NFL.

And to those people who think American sport is a 'Happy Clappy' day out for the whole family with oversized foam hands and abseiling mascots - it's not always...

I feel dirty, but I'm an Eagle for the night. Cheatriots don't deserve another ring, they should be fired into the fucking sun. Too many dodgy decisions around Deflatriots games, Jags should've been in this game.

The ridiculous thing about the games where the Patriots 'cheated' is that they would have won them any way. If ever a team didn't need to cheat, it's the Patriots.

Nicknames such as ĎCheatriotsí and ĎDeflatriotsí make me want the Patriots to win again.

GO PATS!

Also, Iíve been to Foxboro and while there a nice family run grocery store let me use their phone so I could call for a taxi.
