I'm not doing anything during the world, except drinking, and singing, and cheering on the team... and then having a quiet little weep, when we fail to make it out of the group stage.

COME ON ENGLAND!!!!

Agreed. The only sport more banal than the one where 22 men kick a ball of air around a lined lawn has to be that one where a handful of guys riding souped-up  egg whisks on wheels go round and round in circles like goldfish.

Please get your facts right speedway45. It lasts a month.

Football is a sport and it is a very popular sport. Worldwide.

Speedway may be exciting to you, but it does nothing for me. When I was younger I was very interested in motor sport, but never in speedway. Talking of two wheels, the TT races (on now) have a huge following compared to speedway.

You could use the month to get odd jobs done, or even practice your photographic skills.
As in life, so in a game of hazard, skill will make something of the worst of throws.

I'm not a fan of football (but would watch it over speedway any day if I HAD to choose) but would still say it's most definitely a sport. I'd be interested to hear (read) your definition of sport if you think football isn't.

Speedway45 has a point in questioning football's qualification as a sport, certainly professional football. The whole thing has become a grotesque money manking engine and although not rigged, the whole setup is (IMO) gradually becoming akin to the likes of WWE in that it's more about big-money & less about the sport itself (if it were they wouldn't have created the premiership that's so far ahead of the other divisions in many ways).
'Scuse the pun but it certainly isn't on a level playing field.

Not forgetting as well the fact that it's gradually become a form of entertainment that commands somewhat large financial premiums to enjoy it, be it TV subscription costs, merchandising, or ticket costs. With these spiralling costs it's hardly fair to call it a working man's sport any more (it's arguably easier and cheaper to follow the likes of cricket, rugby or golf).
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

When you see footage of times gone by of football stadiums full to capacity watching a match, that is when it was a sport. Now as Red stated it is now just commercialism gone mad which advocates cheating, kids learn to dive and play act from there idols however will I watch, of course I will until England get knocked out by penalties

In terms of spectacting, I'd agree with you. But in terms of participating, all you need is a few mates, coats for goalposts and a ball, in order to have a kickabout. Compare that with me and a few mates wanting to spend the afternoon playing golf. Or doing a bit of Speedway.
