Happy football is starting up!!

I don't know about anyone else but I'm ecstatic that football is starting back up again! I know it's only pre-season but that means the regular season, and more importantly to me, college season will be starting soon. I'm not the biggest lover of NFL but I do keep up with it and watch a few games here and there. I absolutely love college ball and can't hardly wait for things to get going. I'm especially anxious to see how this new tournament/playoff thing is going to work out for the championship.

GO GATORS!!!

Re: Happy football is starting up!!

Football is great, don't know any college teams, but I would really like to see Barcelona get back in shape. Lately Real Madrid and Bayern Munich has been just a tad bit sharper. Must admit I like the german style.

Good to see proper football made it's way to the US! Go get them!

Re: Happy football is starting up!!

HA! Well I'm talking American football, not futbol, though I do enjoy watching the game when I catch one on TV. Yeah it made a big splash over here in the US when the US team was recently in the world cup. You couldn't go anywhere without someone talking about it. As soon as the US lost, didn't hear a peep... damn fair-weather fans.

Anyway, yeah I do like to watch futbol when I catch a game but for me college american football is where it's at.

Re: Happy football is starting up!!

As a lifelong Seahawk fan... who's dream of a Superbowl win finally came true last year... I'm ready! After rooting for them since the late 80's, I can finally just sit back and enjoy the games stress free... they got their rings already. (ahhh... just thinking of the way they dismantled the Broncos makes me all warm and fuzzy inside)

Ah, sorry. It's now very clear that you are talking about handegg. The sport where you use your hands to carry a ball shaped like an egg.

And no, won't follow it, not looking forward to it. Heck, even australian football is more exciting. Do they allow steroids in NFL?

Please, don´t be so negative. I am European, so naturally soccer is my sport no.1, but i like American Football too. If you can the rules, it`s very interesting to watch!
It`s NFL for me, i wish teams from Chigago, Green Bay and Minneapolis to succeed.

I can watch NFL games live during nights in cable tv here in Sweden, i usually see 5 games a week. Retired person, so i can sleep in other times!

Likewise looking forward to the season kicking off. As many will know I am only a recent fan of the game but really look forward to getting in as many games as I can.

Go the Jets < please make it to the playoffs this year!

American football isn't as exciting (what's more exciting than 0-0 after 90 minutes??), but they are trying to get the players to dive a lot more often to liven it up a bit Maybe throw in a few bites, you know, get some of that good futbol excitement going.

They're also going to try and get the refs and players to start throwing games for the bookies so we can become more like that spuriously respected world sport, futball!

The only fans hurting more than Jets fans are Dolphin fans.
They've YET to regain any sense of composure since Danny retired. Hopefully the post Jeff Ireland era will be better.
Niners start in their new stadium this year. Hopefully Colin Kaepernick and company can get that monkey off their back and finally win a Super Bowl. (And by "monkey" I mean Seattle Seahawks. )

The Niners are going to great this year, they just keep getting better and better with Kaepernick. The Seahawks were lucky to sneak by them to make it to the Superbowl last year!

The Seahawks were so solid last year and I think a lot of teams are learning how to shut Kaepernick down.

P.S. Seriously....Soccer? I 'forbid' my son to play soccer, I would like him to grow up with some dignity and respect
