Wow, what was it like in the oldern days?
Poor, nasty, brutish, and short. People died.

Life-span was very limited.  Apparitions abounded.

Hi!

::summertowns::

That's a strange dissociated constructed verb.


That's...what she said?

No, no.

"Your penis is pathetically small and is not pleasuring me at all.  I'm not even sure if it's in my vagina or not.  This is boring.  I'm not drunk enough."

That's what she said.

Wow, threads on denigrating into flames a lot quicker these days

Cady: You are dangerously close to making your 10000th post part of an argument over Baseball v Soccer.

Bloom: Don't you have slutty NZ girls to hunt down?

C'mon guys, feel the love!



It's really closer to the 25,000th post.

And no, threads actually take longer to get to the flaming point nowadays.

Oh, one last thing.

You may not understand trolling very well.  I won't deny that I'm a troll, and you shouldn't take it seriously.

That said, this:

You: "Baseball blows"
Me: "Don't be a feminine hygiene product, there is no point in this argument" (plus other things)
You: "I'll be a feminine hygiene product if I want to whenever, and wherever I want to. And I'm allowed to. I can keep threads going for pages by being a feminine hygiene product and arguing because it is my right, and here I am willing to be a feminine hygiene product to win this argument. It is my right to be a feminine hygiene product, and I plan to exercise that right" (plus other things)
Me(in this post): Responding to your posts, and asking, Please stop this argument. There is no point.
You(in the next post): ??. I hope it is something that proves you aren't a feminine hygiene product bag, but I highly, highly doubt it.

is most certainly not a good summary of our conversation.  Not even close.

Except maybe the last line.  But then, what's the point of calling me a troll if I already called myself a troll?

I will also note (as the informed probably have) that I have shown amazing self-restraint by not blasting you for insulting a sport that I actually care about.

I didn't insult soccer. Its a beautiful game and I love watching it, especially in Europe where the athletes are world class caliber(unlike here. Seriously. If you don't like watching MLS, don't put off soccer. The MLS is like high school football compared to La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, or the premiership. Give it a shot.) I pointed out a basic flaw in the way the scoring system works and in the playoff system, from the way I see it.

That self restraint you are bragging about is called maturity, but this maturity seems to be contradicted by your inability to see what insulting a sport actually is, especially wehn you say, for no reason, wiht no justification, baseball blows. I only tried to point out a couple flaws. That's not an insult.

 :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D @ all of the above posts

And no, I'm not talking about soccer.

No, those are other concerns.  The fact that baseball blows (and is certainly less important than major soccer tournaments in a worldwide-sense) doesn't bother me one way or the other... unless it's taking up all the scheduled time on SportsCenter, at which point I get enraged.


Is there really any point in starting this argument? Are you just trying to like piss me off? Every one else seems to be a baseball fan here. I never said champions league wasn't important, and I never asked to compare soccer to baseball.

It is not a fact that baseball blows. You think baseball blows. An opinion. Big difference. And don't come back with a "no, baseball seriously blows" because everyone who reads this board is older than 5 and doesn't like childish arguments (for the most part. Here's looking at you, Tim Mitchell.)

Soccer blows because it relies so much on luck. One team can dominate the entire game, but the system of scoring is so flawed because its not about who generates the most opportunities, but is about who is lucky enough to score in theirs, which is pretty much dumb luck. Skill is important, but so often the team that gets outplayed will win(Football has a similar flaw, by the way). And the fact that the postseason takes place 6 months later makes the champions league the biggest load of crap this side of cricket. Imagine the patriots this year. Undefeated, but because the playoffs would be held in this season, they wouldn't have had the opportunity to try to go undefeated because Brady would have been hurt. It takes away from the quality of the tournament because the teams that qualify are often much different than the teams that play. What a stupid, stupid system.

But, considering that the station playing Champions League here is ESPN, who's home base is in Bristol, Connecticut, one of the biggest baseball following areas of the country, I think I have a point. An American company has a choice between the american past time and european soccer playing the playoffs they should have done six months ago.

And please don't make the soccer is world king argument here. I'm in New Zealand. It's not. Rugby union is king, rugby league is second, cricket is third, and then, so far behind it can't be seen, is soccer. There are alot of casual sports fans here, and many of them like baseball, which I have found quite suprising.

But, more than anything, grow up. Don't go into a baseball thread just to say baseball sucks. Thats like goin into a thread about christianity to say christianity blows, although the subject matter in the two situations is obviously very different.



A few pointers to the n00b:

1.  I once extended this very same argument (the one where you try to defend baseball's integrity by pointing the finger at another sport) into two essays and a fight spanning fifteen pages of a thread, so you underestimate my willpower at your own peril.
2.  Soccer isn't something I'm defending, necessarily. 
3.  "Popularity" does not necessarily equate to most-viewed in the country where you are, particularly when it comes to worldwide cable (e.g. ESPN).
4.  I'd re-check the major seat of ESPN in Australasia if I were you.  It ain't Connecticut, mate.
5.  Fatal flaw in preemptive argument: soccer isn't the most popular sport in New Zealand, therefore it does not make sense to show soccer ahead of baseball.  Failed to consider that baseball is so far below soccer no matter where the latter ranks that Champions League would win, regardless.  But this argument isn't necessary once you figure out Point 4 (although it is applicable to that host nation, where, although the rankings are different, baseball still loses out).

Most importantly:

6.  I will go into any thread to say any f-ing thing I want to.  Stop pissing yourself.  Even though I didn't come into this thread merely to say baseball sucks, I (and all others on internet forums) reserve the right to do so at any time we please.

In short: baseball blows.
