    I don't make threads and going around bashing other people's interests in hobbies, because I am able to understand that - wait for it - different people like different things. Woah, I said it.

    I happen to like football, as do many others. Is it not beyond these football-bashers to just accept that? Seriously, grow up.

    To me it's just another game of football... Grown men chasing a tiny object moving across a pitch surrounded by crowds of screaming people. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they also get paid thousands...why is it that they get paid millions for doing something they enjoy, when zillions of people are starving and getting paid 6p a day for working nike?
    Sorry for all those football lovers out there, but that's how I see it
    Agreed.

    The Champions league is so much better

    Agree but it actually isn't as boring as it may look, I've been watching a few of the matches, not bad

    Rooney & co. pay a lot of money in tax so it's fine. Every cloud has a silver lining.
