    racism in football over the years(argue your side about how they've handled it)

    whether they should implement replay or not/if they should put the sensors in the ball to make the correct decision on goals


    any american football fans out there? Randy Moss to the Patriots :eek:

    Well, got in from a top of the table clash today. Much like Derby we now have nothing to play for, as the team in 2nd beat us 2-1 and are now unassailable. What was worse was the goal I scored. Corner came in, I headed it off the bar. The ball came back to me, I headed it across goal - the keeper pulled off a stunning save but the ball was on the way in. This FAT ARSEHOLE comes in and thinks its a good idea to plant MY HEADER into his own net, and the ref put it down as an OWN GOAL!! So I am STILL stuck on 13 goals for the season! Fcuk sake!

    That video was hysterical.

    I talked to my college coach, and he gave me the idea of the topic "What is the best youth development system for the future of USA Soccer"... I like the topic, it's researchable (ex top down vs bottom up).. but it's still somewhat tough.

    But, for a product that I have to make next year (along with a presentation.. the product must be tangible) I can create a booklet or pamphlet talking about my fake club's training and development missions, etc, what they do.. yeah.

    I hate my district.

    (I want to give kudos to his other idea, if it could be made into a paper: from the viewpoints of the USA, the Germans, Italians and the Dutch, the best way for each of those sides to beat Brazil in a WC final... that would be fun to write, but it's not really what the district graduation project is looking for - unfortunately.)

    Because my school district is stupid, not only do you have to pass 32 classes (actually you only need 28 credits, but yeah, 32 is how many you usually end up taking), but you have to complete a graduation project over junior and senior year.

    Junior year, you write a 6-10 page argumentative paper that obviously, you take a side on.

    Senior year, you create a tangible product based on that paper, as well as do a presentation infront of a 4-5 person panel about it.

    Whee.

    Incase anyone wanted to know, while conducting my research, I have found out that roughly 40 UKs fit in the USA, and 231 Hollands fit in the USA.

    That's my strategy - the same strategy used in youth soccer here - the club costs $3000 to play for, so they must be the best :):).

    don't forget to add in how the ODP system is corrupted by politics.

    done bigg. I don't understand why it's such a huge hassle to them. I feel like it's not that unreasonable with the amount of traffic that goes through the sale threads here.

    True and maybe it would actually get the threads more organized.

    Cheers guys. I don't see what the problem is myself, but meh. Hopefully when they see a lot of people want this, they might sort things out.

    the collectibles forum is awful. there are 2 big threads in there, and none of them deal with selling- only "how many scarves do you have? isn't my manchester united gold/black reversible kit awesome?" it'd be a shame if they move it there, as I don't see a lot of interest in that forum for sales of the sort. It'd be a lot more of a step backwards

    Exactly. I said if there's that little traffic, move that forum here as a subforum as nobody really cares about it as it is! As long as I can do what I want with it I don't mind, I will clear the whole thing out and go from there!
