    Check out the column "Mediawatch" on today's Football365.com. It appears that our frequent poster Kentomasch (sp?) has struck a nerve on the other side of the pond. Hurrah.

    When you find it, click on the link embedded in the phrase "take it away boys, and you'll go to Kenn's website where he chronicles the whole thing. I've already seen it on BS, but it's good that it's getting more play.

    Good to see someone over there has a sense of humor about this.

    Somebody needs to do it, so I will. I'm starting a thread over at "links" for all mentions of bigsoccer in the media.

    I think we all need to sit back and realize what a unique thing this is. Is there anything, anywhere, like bigsoccer? A message board that is read by everyone that matters in an entire sport? A message board that gets referenced in kicker and football365?

    Oh, bloody 'el. First time I think I've ever been in the subject line of a thread.

    I started getting emails this morning from English folks. It's running about 20-2 on my side, and I've put the first batch up on the site. Waiting for the others to give me their okay to do so.

    To be honest, I thought the whole thing was over and done with a month ago, but it has apparently gained new legs now. I'm sure it will be short-lived. At least I hope so.

    Speaking of which, was BigSoccer mentioned? How about a plug, Kenn?

    That was hilarious to read the first time, and it just keeps getting funnier. I guess everyone is missing the Fish called Wanda reference...

    Hopefully, your adversary's career at the BBC will be even shorter.

    If only I could figure out how to plug the ECG#15, and Kenn's interview of Peter Wilt, in all of this.

    Bigsoccer wasn't involved originally. I read the article, I took the guy to task, he told me to f*** off, I put it on my website. There was a thread about it somewhere, I put a link to the thing on my site about it, it got some traffic for a couple of days. Then somebody sent it along to football365.com and it has new legs.

    Well, Andy, I'll plug ECG#15 on my site, for what it's worth, as soon as you send me a .jpg of the latest cover. :)

    That would do it. The two nasty ones I've gotten today were pretty rich, actually. One of the nice ones had me falling down laughing. I'm waiting for the guy to give me permission to print it, though.

    Some were just happy to see that an American could use the term "wanker" correctly. :)

    I move that Kenntomasch be awarded BigSoccer Premium Status in recognition of his service to soccer in this country!

    Seconds?

    OK - just trying to improve the eurotroll to non-troll ratio around here.

    It's amazing how much entertainment can be had with an e-mail or two and a website.

    Good luck with that! I think trolls are part of the ecosystem around here---annoying, but necessary.

    Yeah, they're on the original page, but if you can't find them (right at the top), it's here.

    Hmmm...Jon reeks of Australian to me. Not English, living in the UK, and Aussies call Americans "Tanks". Be sure to tell him to shut his irrelevant, convict ass up and get back to pulling pints at the pub he's undoubtedly employed at over there. Arrogant, sun tanned Canadians - all they are.

    Wow. I'm certainly bringing the world a little bit closer, huh?

    I'm sure there are other countries who don't like MLS. The guy in question is English and the BBC is English/British. I'm sure I can stereotype any other country you like, given the chance. :)

    Yes, it's from "A Fish Called Wanda", as I mention in response to one of the letters.
