    Materazzi's red wasn't really funny, but I wouldn't complain about it. Guy had it in for him, and we're going to the San Siro up two goals.

    It was funny to me because I hate him. Plus he makes the greatest facial expressions when he gets called...

    sorry for the double post, but I just had an epiphany regarding the Eduardo situation.
    As opposed to the three match ban that Taylor got, the FA, or FIFA for that matter, should impose bans for people who injure people horribly with horrendous challenges [like Taylor's] that the ban is the duration equal to the length of the injury, and not play again until the injured player is completely fit. I don't know if this has been an idea before, but it just seems that it'll bring about some kind of change to make these unnecessary things stop happening. No one deserves a situation like Eduardo's, and to be out as long as he will would surely change Taylor's mind about hurling himself at other players.

    It just wouldn't work. I was more then gutted after seeing Eduardo injured like that, but some challenges that cause such injuries are a result of a complete mistake by the opposing player.

    I've been lucky enough to break my leg during a football match, It didn't come thru the skin but it still went a bit floppy, it's all surreal though, like a dream.

    Yeah, with any bad injury it doesn't actually feel like you're in pain, it's sort of surreal and just feels like something's not right...that's the best way I can explain dislocating my knee. The realisation of the severity didn't hit me for about two hours.

    I find the pain never hits until you've been told what you've done.

    I remember when i broke my foot i got up and tried to keep playing on it but it just felt like jelly the pain didn't hit instantly.

    It was a bad tackle. But i don't thank that Taylor deserves death threats! I do however think that if he publically apologised it might cause some of it to stop especially the bad feeling he's getting from the Croatian Public (who seem to think he did it on purpose because Croatia beat England!) ... apparently he's seen Eduardo though and he has accepted his apology and understands the tackle wasn't intentional.

    Thats nonsense if the croats believe that (wonder if that'll get censored like an abbreviation for japanese does...), I mean if he wanted to take out frustration coz of englands demise surely he'd 2foot McSven in the face and put his cleats thru Desperate Dan -Carsons hands....
    Good if he has manned up and apologised in person, im guessing he has advisors saying to keep stum tho else he wud apol in public...

    good to hear the arsenal staff have said eduardo will be back in "9 months". not that im slamming the training room but RVP was only going to be out 6 weeks or something like that. if 6 weeks=5 months, then eduardo will really return when he is 482 years old. (i know RVP came back and reinjured himself)

    i remember our keeper in high school broke his leg and played on it the rest of the match. he didn't realize it was broken until a few hours after the game was over. after all said and done he was out for 4 months.

    Over 70? As in VO2? I quit start of level 16 as I started to break a sweat and was supposed to be at work-didn't have any clothes to change into and have a game 2moz. Excuses yes, but only popped into the gym for lunch at one of the trainers blagged me into running with her as she got her try-out for gladiators on tuesday and has NEVER done one b4, she quit halfway thru level 14 which was pretty good I thought...
    Dunno could get much above a 17 nowadays tho, amazing how much of a difference the extra "mass", age and lack of practice makes!

    we run on a basketball court from end to end and the machine beeps, and tells you what number you are at, and if you miss the beep you are done, its difficult to explain over the internet

    Hmm sounds the same, I guess it just tells you the total number of shuttles or the equated VO2 max, there are online calculators that tell me my L16 today gives me a VO2 of 68ml/kg/min, which according to www.brianmac.co.uk/beep.htm makes me a "superior" athlete (as ever the normative scores for these are LOW so that anyone with a lick of fitness can feel like a stud!)
    Gotta improve my 2.2 levels in order to be considered an endurance athlete...

    Can you tell it's saturday night and im home "doing" college work!!!!

    quick few laps of facebook now then...

    I remember at school we used to have to do the Bleep test in PE when it was raining. And when i did A-Level PE, the informed us that we were running a shorter distance in the sports hall than we were meant too so they laid it out all properly in the gym and it was evil.

    The worse would have to be the sit up bleep test though. We had one lad in our group though who used to finish the bleep test and the sit up bleep test while we were all dying in the corner!!

    yea they edited wiki but it did have some pretty awesome claims of prowess pertaining to the bleeptest, like the guy that maxed one after a marathon then cycled 50k....
