Tell me you guys have seen the Reebok commercials that have been aired in America.
I believe it's to promote the NFL Dream Team game, but they're really entertaining ads.
I can't accept some of them to be true, like this one: -

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/aoYbevFvWg8&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/aoYbevFvWg8&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

But then, there are some like this this that are awesome: -

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/yYeQbcSQ8CU&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/yYeQbcSQ8CU&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>


Check out all the related videos on youtube to see a few more great ones (some hard to believe that they are not rigged in some way.)

Pick me!

Yes, the athletes are hardly role models are they. Past superstars up for murder (OJ), drug possession (Michael Irvin), gang shootings (Darrent Williams) and illegal dog fightings (Michael Vick). Then there's others like Ray Lewis who was up for murder, Sean Taylor (RIP) for spitting at Michael Pittman during a game....

Hardly the the types of players you want as role models, and these are all superstars of the game.

My favourite part was the South African taking a dig at American Society... as he was typing that his father was probably being knifed in the street, his house was being broken into and his car was about to be found burnt out and missing it's tyres.

Majority of American football fans I know only watch the sport for betting on their fantasy teams since they wish so badly they could've been professionals. I hardly know one 'fan' that just enjoys the sport for what it is, which shows how little of interest it truly has. I just find it to be incredibly slow and uninteresting.

Seriously? Lol, that's priceless.... an American football player calling a rugby player a fag. I don't understand how that works, I suppose they don't have much exposure to the game so they ultimately assume it's a poncy sport as most of them really can't see beyond their own border.

American football, known in the United States simply as football, is a competitive team sport known for mixing complex strategy with intense physical play. The object of the game is to score points by advancing the pointed-oval shaped ball into the opposing team's end zone.

Thank you so so much for both enlightening me on the finer points of "American football" and overall making my life such a better experience to live through.

In all seriousness, I think that should be 'Tactics', not strategy.
