He was a gimmick brought in by our retard of an owner to get the Jets back in the papers after the Giants won the Super Bowl. However even given that we never gave the guy a fair shot even after the season had gone to hell.

Yea it was a shame. I hate it when people say he sucks because of the way he lives his life. He won the heisman trophy for a reason didn't he... He's obviously a good player he just hasn't adjusted to the nfl nor has he gotten a fair chance on a team. I completely agree that it was an attention ploy when the Jets took him.

I gotcha. I'm no Pats fan but damn if I don't have a lot of respect for Tom Brady and the rest of the team. Especially when they won 21 or 2 games in a row over two seasons. Brady's probably one of the best if not the best qb in the league. He also did an advertisement for Uggs for men which I thought was great.

I watch most sports if that's what you're ask. As far as the nfl goes I can't really say I have a favorite team. I'm from NC but I'll be damned if I'm Panthers fan lmao. I like the players more than the teams i.e. I don't have a favorite team, I just like different players on different teams.

1: More countries call crisps 'crisps' than call them 'chips'. Meaning this isn't a purely british thing.

2: Uhm... Now I may be wrong but is your logo a... superbly animated anthropomorphic dog's ass... in tight rubber sports shorts? And... thigh-highs? There are too many questions here for my liking. Questions like: Why is it so well animated? Why is it just the ass? and why is it your icon?

No, we call them fries too.

Same reason you call football football when the ball is mostly moved about by hand. Because the name stuck and people ran with it (kind of how Rugby started. Kid picked up the ball and just ran with it.)

Language just happens like that and you needed a way to differenciate between two different kinds of potato-based product so, just like us, you use two different names for them. I imagine those chips come commonly in steak-houses in the US so that's probably the etymology of the name.

Yeah... but the Brits also invented a lot of out-moded things that changed with the times. American Football began as a game of 20 a side with a mix of football and rugby rules where the ball couldn't be carried, hence the name. Language is less defined than people think and it's more of an amorphous blob of letters that we just assign meanings to based on the context.

I hate people calling it Soccer simply because everyone else in the world (like almost every other country if not every one... but generalisation tends not to help much if applied carelessly) but I don't raise a fuss about it any more than I do about Americans complaining about gun violence when the facts really are simple.

The problem is that people like two really stupid thing:
1) Being right.
2) Other people being wrong.

It's why 'Murica is better than everywhere else and everywhere else is better than America. It's why my team beats your team and why Fries < Chips. It's why Blacks < Whites and why God > Gay. People latch onto concepts and often they're too stupid (or proud but often they're one in the same) to let things go.

But I can't blame people for this and really neither should you all that much. It's basic human defence mechanisms (the things that I know are right and everything else is wrong) that your government (and mine too) have yet to figure out needs to be taught in schools as to how to overcome it. If you keep treating kids like idiots who are too stupid to understand how their own biological processes are going to **** them over royally in the future then guess what... that's how they're going to act. It's a miracle I ended up as self-aware as I am and I'm a ******* autist.

And that's something that gets in my bonnet. Every hipster these days is a ******* autist. i've been around autists all my life and it takes more than a fedora to ******* qualify. It's why I hate those [Autism Intensifies] pics. It's the only thing in the internet that gets my jimmies rustled anymore.

1: Didn't say you were wrong.
2: Where something comes from has no effect on the validity of the name in different cultures.
3: It's a fact I've seen cited many times. Where do you get your sources because right now I've no idea if you're right or if it's me on this issue.

I suppose the other person was more of an ass than you were. I thought you were saying the British way was the superior name. I mean it is chip in Canada and the US, and the old British colonies it's like sorta crisp but sorta chip, and in India it's chip.

Your backhanded compliment was marvellously executed for an arse-wipe.

On a less hypocritical note, I was referring to the non-english speaking countries too. Much like how most of the world calls football 'football' in some variation (Le Foot in france etc...) I've encountered more dialects that use the term crisp than chip over the years. Granted that's likely to be subjective to my own experience but I don't have any counter-evidence (and I have looked) so until I see it I have to go with what I know.

No, I just like to write like I am one. My style of humour is pretty varied but I personally prefer the persona of a witty brit with a stick up his ass. Often it makes it easy for others to come up with jokes against me and then the inevitable witty back and forth starts up. Sadly I've been making too much sense lately for people to do that kind of thing.

If I need to talk in a more relaxed manner I can manage it but honestly I do like using this style of word-play more than any other. Something about imagining someone like Steven Fry or Christopher Lee being the voice to narrate my writing makes me chuckle and it also makes it a bit funnier when I break into dry humour.

It also lends my words a little more weight in debates. It's a shallow trick to be sure but on the internet it pays for people to take you seriously.

If I was a truly serious fellow (and not, as I am, one who has a bizarre set of reasonings for what he does and analyses everything in an autistically obsessive fashion) I'd not spend so much time on FJ, possibly my favourite website.

I like you. Not enough people use the word fellow these days. (Or ragamuffin but that's a different can of worms).

Whilst I have no beef with American Football (I just prefer Rugby) is it not true that the ball can only be kicked by one person and he needs to be brought onto the field from offside in order to kick it? I don't know this so I'd like this clarified.

(The name is stupid as **** but hey, it sounds better than handegg so I don't see a problem.)

Actually no. There are a few people that can kick the ball, including the quarterback (the primary ball handler), but it is uncommon for anyone but the kicker or punter. When the quarterback kicks the ball, he is taking the place of the punter and it is usually meant to be a trick play.

In a typical game, there are more field goals (points achieved by kicking the ball) and field goal attempts than there are touchdowns (by quite a bit). And they also get a choice of an extra play after a touchdown to either kick the ball for an P(oint) A(fter) T(ouchdown) field goal (1 point) or run the ball in from a few yards out (2 points), and teams will almost always kick it for the PAT. Then they kick-off to the other team, who more than likely will be punting it after 3-7 plays.

In other words, there is a ******** of ball kicking in American football. It's just not the constant foot contact that football (soccer) is.

Actually wiki'd it (didn't think of it before... which is odd.)

The name is still stupid but it's not the fault of the game or anyone really since the game started as a merger of Rugby and Football where you weren't allowed to touch the ball and the game just sort of grew from there. It's now changed to the point where the name football really doesn't apply to it in comparrison to the original intention of the name but Rugby is called Rugby even when it's not played in Rugby so names have a way of sticking around even when they don't apply much.

I don't get uppity about it like others do and it's nice to know the roots of the game.
