/ Football vs mtb'ers
Brilliant! :) It's stuff like that that makes me hate football and love extreme sports.
Very good, but probably not the best vid to watch just before I go out on my bike in the snow and ice
Is there a better term? I agree its necessarily the best.
I just thought the terms 'girl ball' and 'wendy ball' particular juvenile and lame, you are perfectly entitled to not like football, you can be a tedious bore as well, but it is the second of these I am commenting about.

If you have to group such sports together, which I would rather not, I would go with adventure sports.

Most of the time I wouldn't regard "mountain" biking as either extreme or adventurous.
Looked to me like the footballers were stupidly trying to con the referee, and the MTBers were stupidly trying to con the grim reaper!
I know which I'd prefer to be beforehand but I also know which I'd prefer to be afterwards ;-)
could be worse, it could be Rugby. When I was at school Rugby was the game for the lads who were too fat to play football.

Just back from a 30 mile ride across the peak, on my own and very few other people around. Can I call that 'adventurous' ?
Actually I don't care, I had fun and good exercise, so who needs labels ?
Tired old stuff - and before you say it, I hate what football has become and love MTBing.
Footballer bashing is too easy, they make it so.
