Yea, but I didn't know that anyone outside of my high school did that. Obviously I was way wrong.

The entire fucking formation.

Do you think the manager just says "You 11. Go and play"? No. He has to sort out roles, how each player is meant to use that role, how the defense will play against each attacker (For example, Man Utd v Wigan, Wigan will be outmatched. They'll have to play differently than if they were playing a side in similar quality as them) etc etc.

And explain to me how "Woo. Throw the ball. You run and try and catch it" is intellectually simulating?

That's about exactly what I thought.

Football is way more strategic than that. The coach has to call a play (quite often; every time they stop, a new play is called) based on the players that are currently playing on the opponent's side, their strengths and weaknesses, what part of the field they're on and many other factors. There are a very large amount of plays available, making it even harder. Put on top of this the fact that he also has to guess what type of play the other team is going to call. Also, he has to decide which players are going to stay in the game for that play. It is also a game where the team has to work together. In football, one weak link will give the other team a distinct advantage.

I'm Alexander, am an electrical engineering student and part-time commodities trader, and may poke around here a bit more. I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere until I can transfer to the distance program at ODU, but once this is complete, there will be many happy 'semesters abroad'.

Fortunately, you don't have to worry about 300-350 pound monsters (who are surprisingly fast for their size) crushing you. :-)

If you can prove that at least 1/5 of the team is over 300 pounds, I'll concede that I've lost. However, I really can't see that being true.

what is 300 pounds equivalent to in kilos? let's say roughly 130+kilos. well if you saw some of the size of rugby players then it's safe to say you've lost this battle! mwhahahahaha

I'll take rugby over either flavor of football any day.

Enough with the football arguments!! I dont really care for either! hockey's my thing...

Anyway, my name is Birgitte, 24 years of age, I live in North Dakota, been listening to AA for about 9 months actually. The only other time I had been this blown away by the awsomeness of a band was when I discovered BATHORY. But AA by far blew me out of the water more so than any other band. I have been listening to metal for almost all my life, it's just gotten to be progressively darker and scarier metal as the days wear on. The one thing I pride myself in (probably something we all have given a go at) is that I lead the life of a normal person while being a dark metal whore deep inside! Special tidbit-- I have three Norwegian Elkhounds named Odin, Thor and Freya and two barn cats named Hugin and Munin!!

I suppose thats it.

Never realized AA had so many young fans. Seems like most of the posts are from people in their teens who hate Americans, or teenage Americans defending it. Haha, you learn something new every day. I'll add my worthless intro soon, I just really don't like writing about myself and I'm feeling lazy. :d
