    But do I get it right ? Its shown on Free-TV ?
    I wonder if they stream the matches because that would give me the chance to watch it when using an US IP :sneaky:

    Yes. I'll be able to watch a game on Saturday with my digital antenna, no cable fees.

    Yesterday NBC broadcast two full hours on the Premiere League so those of us in the U.S. could learn what it was all about. It was a fun show. They talked about what personality types follow which teams. The history of a number of the clubs. The pubs and the fans. It was like a "Premiere League for Dummies" book on TV. For those of us in the states who don't grow up with it, the show was very informative.

    Liverpool - Long faded glory team from the past, thick incomprehensible accents. Play in red

    Manchester United - Spoiled glory hunters, soon to be living on past glories again. Play in red

    Arsenal - Sophisticated French Man United feeder club, haven't won anything in years. Play in red.

    Man City - Newly rich northern upstarts, annoying fans and the singer from Oasis likes them nuff said. Would like to play in Red.

    Spurs - Won much? not. Always the Bridesmaids Play in white.

    Chelsea - In the past always the gallant losers that played nice football. Now owed by a Russian Billionaire, play ugly and win things. No one likes us care we not. Play in Blue.

    I used to love trying to figure out what Sir Alex was saying. Speaking as one from the States, you all talk funny. :p

    Soccer...you know, the slow moving game where it takes days to score a point? It makes dressage look exciting. :p

    Okay, I'll be more blunt if the subtlety is lost in the translation. I find it boring as hell. Is there some reason I'm supposed to enjoy soccer of which I'm not aware?

    To make mention that i do like rugby, which is also not traditionally an "American" sport. Why does everything seem to bother you so much? Even a little light ribbing seems to get deep under your skin. I make a light joke about soccer and you take it way too seriously. And that was in response to someone else's joke asking what soccer was. Lighten up, eh?

    Light ribbing ? You have just come across as a complete dick all pissing day. I`m suspecting we`ve crossed swords before, but you`ve come back under a new name because so many people had you blocked, you couldn`t talk your **** much more. You`re a bloody idiot who doesn`t even know when to let go of a losing arguement because you believe the **** you write.

    Tread lightly.

    I have a damn good reason why I'm using a new name now and the mods are completely aware if it, and you couldn't be more off base as to the reason, which is none of your business. If you have a problem with it, take it up with Rob.

    And you're the LAST person who should be criticizing anyone's behavior. Did I call you any childish names? No, you did that.

    YOU are the one who took an obvious joke and started a fight over it. You're not even the one I was joking with, but you couldn't resist the urge to instigate a fight. Sorry, I'm not biting.

    OTOH, packerfan71 responded in a much more appropriate manner because he recognized we were kidding with each other. Why you take everything so personally is beyond me.
