People plastering tattoos all over their arms. And legs.

Yea. Hard to know why. I can't get either of them but if I could I don't think I would bother tbh.

Why do Irish people support certain English soccer teams? Why do people who are not from Manchester support United?
I think you have to be a bit thick not to know the answer to this.

Let's hear it then.

Quote
Loads of Irish support NFL teams in the US, and nobody ever questions that. Yet, when Ireland had American football teams, they’d get a handful of supporters, the Irish Patriots, etc fans didn’t give a flying fook about local teams and they’ve probably all gone belly up.

Since when?

Since when? Are you serious?  I remember following the NFL when I was in primary school which was 30 years ago. I vividly remember the Bears team in 1985-86 that beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl. I remember playing ad naseum the game on the C64 that was based on that final. Jim McMahon, Walter Payton and William ‘the Fridge’ Perry were my favourites. NFL has been huge in Ireland and my brother actually played on one of the teams that was set up in Dublin in the mid 90’s. No one questions this nor the following of the NBA. Why should people not follow a team in England, or Scotland, or Italy or Spain?

I used to play in the Irish AF League. There’s actually more teams now then ever, about 30. When I started playing in 2004 there were only 6 teams.

It’s a shame they’ve come up with generic American team names and logos completely ignoring local history and culture. While I enjoyed it, it was a bit annoying being around a load of south side Dubliners acting very American. That and the reluctance to speed the way the game was played up a bit made match days tediously long and harder to enjoy.

Fighting against ignorance on the internet since 1999. It's just taking longer than I hoped.
