they aren't playing a french team...
That must hurt !
then i hope they stuff the saffers, or at least wear them out a bit.
seriously, why do scotland have to be fucking shite at everything. We're not only shite, we occasionly rise to "mediocre" before getting our hopes up and failing miserably again. We're the most disappointing country in the world.
Ah. Never let it be said that it was easy to distinguish between a ray of sunshine and a Scotsman with a grievance.
for a man who hates rugby Lyle, you start an awful lot of threads about it
get 20 more replies than the music threads I start...
Still, watching rugby while listening to O'Death is fun !
but im gettting suckered in by the world cup.
Anyway, I'm just bitter because I travelled all the way to Cardiff to watch your French team beat us yesterday.
So you're unhappy you're still in the tournament, and I'm unhappy because we're not. :(
I have nothing against rugby.
What I hate is seeing people and magazines who didn't give a shit about rugby 6 months ago, become big fans !
That's why I wanted France to lose.
10 years ago, rugby was popular only with a small percentage of the population.
10 years of naked rugby players on calendars and everyone is talking about it !
But doesn't that just mean it's a growing sport?
Although to be fair, I remember over here after England won it last time all of a sudden there were a whole bunch of fairweather fans who jumped on the bandwagon, who then jumped off when they started to play badly. And probably, after England made the semi-final yesterday, will probably be jumping back on again. So yeah, that kind of behaviour is pretty irritating.
because kids can't play it in the streets.
It became important in France when a few people started lobbying for it !
And that helped too...
They're having a laugh.
How many did you buy lyle?
And I didn't buy any, even for my wife...
I'll send you one of mine.
BTW congratulations on another 20+ reply thread. That must be about the third one of your DiS career?
im in such a fucking bad mood now.
south africa to win now surely?
seriously, to describe that scottish performance by anything better than "shite" would be wrong. The commentators were too generous to them.
they werent very good.
but they could have got it back with a try at the end. as undeserved as it would have been...
despite being within 10 metres of the try line for about 5 minutes, i didnt think for 1 second that we could score. Such is the shiteness of the scotland team.
And that chip at the end was ridiculous.
I think Scotland have the basis for a decent team, they just maybe need to get a few more speedy backs.
the ability to catch a ball
the ability to take a ball running
any sort of determination and drive other than "yeah, we might win"
the ability to play interestingly... at all
Just hearing his interview after the game
(sorry, bit upset (and drunk) ).
