After this https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1240991 thread written by somebody who doesn't think there are countries outside of America, I have decided to do a new sports poll based on countries that aren't the US.

The poll options (which will be up as soon as I work out how it works) are taken from Wikipedia's page on sports in Europe, (apart from the AFL).

Crumpet eating is an art form, everyone is a winner, there's no need to compete.

I chose football, the good, international, kind. Though if Birmingham City weren't unbeaten in 6 games i'd probably like it a bit less.

Nearly every main sport you play in the US originated outside of the US.

There was a law just passed in Australia in order to prevent drunken behaviour at cricket matches. Fans are now limited to 24 pints each. TWENTY FOUR!

This pretty much sums up my love for cricket. Nothing can beat getting progressively drunk watching an Ashes test, having some banter with the Aussie fans. In fact, thats all i did this summer, it was epic.

I find football (the American shit, not what they call "Soccer") as just an "American" rip-off of a certain international sport, just to try and show that Americans are more "br00tal"....

When will they learn that they aren't the only country that exists in the world? If they do, they might even have a chance in more INTERNATIONAL sports, like football ("Soccer" in "American English". Why the hell do they have to have their own version of things? )

Oh and another thing... did anyone else notice the lack of the usage of feet in "American Football"???

EDIT: Explain to me why Football (soccer in your language) is the most popular sport in the world, if all other non-american sports are boring? There's a bigger world than the 9400000 square miles (thats 15127833.6 kilometers for the rest of the world) owned by the U.S of A....

It's not outside America. Canada is part of North America.

I think both cricket and baseball need to be banned, they're just utterly and ridiculously boring. I've actually contemplated suicide while watching both of the sports. Fun to play, not to watch.

Since when did RUGBY and MARTIAL ARTS become "American"???

Rugby's roots are in England, I think.
And as for competitive martial arts... I think they had since Roman times, in all the civilizations... fighting for entertainment runs in the blood of the human race... lol

Well I agree with you on the American sports being boring... I mean, I find football (the American shit, not what they call "Soccer") as just an "American" rip-off of a certain international sport, just to try and show that Americans are more "br00tal"....

He said that apart from those two, all other non-American sports are boring. And i'm guessing American arrogance and the need to make their own versions of everything stems from isolationism in some way.

Oi, name ONE, MAJOR international sports event (besides the Olympics, or anything concerning athletics) that America participated in, and attained a respectable rank?

Football World cup?

One word: Baseball.

As much as I like it, I have to admit that it's probably the most boring sport sometimes.

There are different theories concerning how many continents there are, some pepole consider the American continent to be North, Central and South America, while other think there are two continents (South and North America) each country supports a diffeent theory wich means that it's the one that'll be teached in school there, for example we're thought that America is only one continent (central, north and south america)

So technically, none of you are wrong.

Nope, that occupies about 8% of the world's surface area(or around 24% of the land surface).
