    I post this mainly to appease uptight soccer fans.

    It is an utterly stupid and snobbish sport. I mean how stuck up do you have to be to calls your rules "Laws?" That's what they call them though, "the laws of cricket." Their stupid "laws" even have a copyright. Uh, no one wants to steal them idiots.

    These matches can go on for days. How stupid is that? By doing that they basically reduce their potential fanbase to fanatics and family. How many people can possibly give up 5 days to watch this "sport?"

    Don't get me wrong their players are certainly skilled, but who the hell cares?

    The action takes place in the middle of the field in an area called the "pitch." Now if you know baseball or have seen a cricket snippet you might think this because one team is on defense and pitches the ball. You would be wrong. They "bowl" the ball.

    I'd continue to explain this nonsense to you, but the truth is it sucks so much that it sickens me. We needed a cricket sucks thread. I hope you enjoy it.

    Cricket is awesome. Only those who have a very narrow mindset wouldn't appreciate a beautiful sport like it.

    Another remnant of Western colonialism, not unlike another sport ...

    Who wants to root for a sport named after an annoying chirping bug? I step on crickets.

    For someone who tells others to toughen up regularly, you sure do have your uber-sensitive moments.

    Cricket is great.

    Any sport where you can sit in the sun for five days drinking beer gets my vote. :D

    If you dislike baseball, you'll loathe cricket.

    No I got the sarcasm. But it comes off as something a whiny 8 year old would do.

    The difference is that cricket really is pretty bad though.

    It remains, however, one of the few sports where a national team's coach can be murdered by thugs in his home country for failing to bring home the trophy, so it's pretty gangsta :laugh1:

    If you hate Cricket, never go to India. It's on every television station. Sachin Tendulkar is like their (pre scandal) Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning and Michael Jordan all rolled into one. His face is plastered on every mobile phone commercial and every bag of chips. When India faces Pakistan its probably the most intense rivaly in all of sports.

    I've been all around the world and watched every native sport. Even if I don't become a fan, generally I can find an aspect of each sport I can generally grow to appreciate. I couldn't do it with cricket. It is interesting to me though why one english colonial territory picks up one sport like cricket and not soccer, but my guess is India is just too friggin hot to run around for 90 minutes continuously.

    There are 3 gas stations/convenience stores that I stop in regularly. Each one is run by guys from India. Nice fellows. Every time I am in there the television has a cricket match showing.

    This isn't really a dig at soccer so much as it is a dig at me. I guess I got him too riled up in the 8 goals thread.
