      Well lads a dire weekend concerning sport!(well england lost twice so its not too bad,my condolences to any English forum goers), Lost to South Africa in the rugby, one of the guy’s working with me is from there so he won’t let up the git!, Cork lost in the football(although i suspect I won’t get much sympathy there)and portugal lost to greece(my fantasy football team consists of half the bloody portuguese squad!) DAMN DAMN DAMN!

      ah well i’ll just have to jump off the nearset cliff

      *hmmm there’s a wall outside my office that might suffice*

      quit talking to yourself man.

      I’ve bet on italy and Croatia to win Euro 2004.

      In work I have drawn Greece, who have surprised me with their quality play and great defence.

      The england match; Well both sides played well but France were better, just because Engalnd managed to hold on for so long doesn’t mean anything – put loads of bodies in def and it is going to be hard to score for anyone.

      t’was a crazy game huh?

      Australia definately made sure the World cup memories were erased real quick…and Ireland’s performance was sadly woeful in a match that really was a wasted opportunity.

      Can hardly say I shed a tear when England went down, and trying to sleep just off the main street of killarney after they beat Cork isnt the easiest thing to do.

      On the other hand, I played 15 hours of multiplayer Halo, cs and UT2004 over the weekend, which did brighten things up a lot…

      UT is awesome amounts of fun now…

      Ya, t’was a savage match!

      What organization are you doing Fantasy League Football with.
      I’m with Sky Sports, they give you bugger all to spend and have cut the player selection significantly!

      In saying that I have Zidane(an obvious choice) on my team so I got plenty of points last night!

      thanks england

      What? Then they would benefit from the skills of Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland? – That would be really useful :rolleyes: [/quote:95a3bae6ef]
      At least England made it into Euro 2004. :p

      Though hopefully they’ll crash and burn. More money really needs to be put into the ice hockey governing body and the development of the game. How can McSorely lead Britain if half the international squad is Canadian???

      Hahaha…..try get the Scots to play in a British team now. There would be riots! Can’t imagine the Welsh would be too chuffed either.

      UT2004 is great.

      I think Ireland have the best squad I seen it ages (ever), the potential is there all we have to do is qualify and we will go all the way ;)

      Italy disappointed me (as usual) yesterday. Its like they don’t care – most of their players never run at the oposition. Having said that they will get to the finals :)

      I’m still hurting from that loss to SA.
      I can’t believe how poor our first up tackling was against an inexperienced SA side. We showed promise in our attack, but also showed impatience in the build up which lead to us giving away stupid penalties and turnovers.

      I am putting it down to rustiness due to the team not having played together in a while. Hopefully that will be confirmed by us beating them this Sunday, although SA will be on a high after their opening victory. We are easily the better team, we just need to step up and prove it.

      Well Bulgaria got a trouncing last night, what a game. 5-0. Italy are going to have a tough time getting to the top of their group up against goal difference like that.

      I don’t really know much about Gaelic football so maybe I’m wrong, but the game has failed to take off from a small rock and land an international following, while other sports such as football have taken off from a slightly bigger rock and now is a worldwide phenomenon.

      As a Northerner I hear a titbit on Gaelic football around once a year and the sport hasn’t really gripped the whole island like football has over in neighbouring England. Is this partially a result of marketing and image? I think Gaelic football seems like a really exciting game but it hasn’t got the most exciting image with it. Rather what comes to mind is a worn down stadium with players running around in uninspiring jerseys.

      If the sport has revamped and commercialised more I think it would draw in a lot more viewers. Though maybe since most of you know about this you’d disagree. :)

      I’m not a fan of Gaelic, but I think that it should go professional in order to modernise itself.
      Also, I can’t agree with one of the finest stadiums in Europe, heck, the world, being used for only a handful of the same sporting occasions a year. Why the GAA just won’t bring themselves into the 21st century I don’t know. Is it such a BIG deal if soccer or rugby is played at Croke Park?

      The Government should stop funding Croker unless the GAA agree to share it, I mean c’mon, its only a few soccer matches a year, its not like the FAI would be taking it over or anything.

      In their own words….GODLIKE.

      Over the series, they have consistently kept the good bits from their own games, stolen the good bits from other games and come up with good bits of their own. They really deserve credit for some outstanding work

      What a strange thread….hockey, football, soccer and UT2004!!

      Gaelic football at least tries to get international with the compromised rules thing with Oz.
      If hurling was packaged properly I think you’d have a much easier sell. 30 men on a pitch with sticks trying to hit a small ball and throw in the ‘its the fastest game in the world’ and you’ve got a big seller surely??? The GAA are too stubborn to do anything that might be detremental to the game but give it a larger audience.

      Sorry SkyClad but I’m a little confused by your post??????
      what do you mean, kept good bits from their own games and stolen bits from others?

      Take for example the vehicles in UT 2004. Lets not for one second ever imagine they weren’t ripped straight from Halo. Theres a skimmer, a Jeep, a big tank, and a single person flying vehicle (and others).

      But then they noticed something that BF1942 did really well – allowed players to swap placements in the vehicle to be able to man the guns etc if you come under attack (at the cost of not being able to move any more).

      Then they made the vehicles destructible – something that irritated me about halo was the way you couldnt destroy a vehicle.

      More later, when im not meant to be working.

      I’d say were all ment to be working whilst on the forums…its part of the cause!

      I understand what you mean now, it’s just the way you originally phrased it.

      you off to GameCon in August SkyClad?

      Vierra gets my vote for ‘most useless muppet’ in this years tournament… Then Figo.

      Now that Croatia and Italy are out, Greece is my last chance of winnning any money…..doh.

      I am now supporting Czech Republic…the game should be interesting tonite, as Germany look good and have that ‘swine’ youngster.

      Come on the Czech Republic tonight…although the Germans seem to be playing a ‘less boring’ form of football this tournament so it should be a good match..

      And come on Sweden! Rooney is overrated and Peckham is so stupid it’s just too easy to insult him.

      England will beat Portugal (I think the portaguese are nothing special), very tough game against Sweden.

      The Czechs will crush all comers though.

      Them and Denmark to play in the final ;)
