Well, it's not a matter of European football or american football being better. Europeans are just better than americans.

But the fact is that no other countries are good at American Football but America. It's a completely one-nation sport, unlike other American sports like baseball, basketball, ice hockey. There's a reason why gridiron has never been considered for the Olympics...

I knew basketball and ice hockey was big in other countries, but where else is baseball popular? I remember our PE teacher introduced it to us in the final year at school and i thought it was quite fun, though not too radical from rounders (which i also enjoyed)

Baseball is big in Japan and South Korea. There are a handful of players from both in the major leagues, including some genuine superstars like Ichiro Suzuki.
And obviously Canada, but you probably count that as america (my apologies to any Canadians, cos I know that pisses them off).
Also, in the caribbean? (I might be in the wrong ocean here - my geography isn't great). Places like Dominican Republic etc anyway.

Anyway, for those who ARE interested in *american* football, we've just had the draft in my fantasy game (on nhl.com), and I picked up the following;

QB J.Cutler (DEN) - got him late, but he may be ok?
RB J.Jones (SEA) - seahawks have lost deion branch and bobby engram so he'll get lots of opportunities I hope
RB W.Parker (PIT) - he's great, and gonna get more carries near the endzone this season
WR H.Ward (PIT) - hmmm. not sure
WR N.Burleson (SEA) - same as J.jones
WR T.J.Houshmanzadeh (CIN) - he's awesome (i still got mocked for taking him with my first pick though)
TE T.Heap (BAL) - don't really care about TEs much as they never earn you many points (unless they're antonio gates)
K P.Dawson (CLE) - as above
DF Steelers Defense (PIT) - purely because troy polamalu plays for them

reserves;
A.Rodgers, M.Forte, D.Jackson, J.Gaffney, R.McMichael

I got 8th pick, so clearly I was screwed
Any suggestions for where I'm looking especially weak and maybe need to try and make some trades?

Anyone else have a fantasy team on NHL.com? Plenty of time to sign up still...

Megaman - His buster will do wonder.
Kirby - A bit gay, but his ability to swallow other players makes him strong.
Batman - Strong and cunning.
Captain America - Humanity in its strongest form, and awesome little wings on his suit. The shield can come in handy.
Cloud (FF7) - He looks weak, but hey, look at what he can carry with those thin little arms, he is like an ant or tentacle monster or something.
Optimus Prime - I'd like to see someone stand in his way, in any of his forms.
Kunio (River city Ransom) - Master at beating people up.
Former President Putin - Noone knows what he is thinking, and he knows karate, and he is russian.
Mr. Gimmick - Supreme being!

reserves:
Sponge Bob, some random guy and a cucumber.

I had no idea baseball was so big in South Korea and Japan. That's my new thing learned for the day!

Frank Caliendo is hilarious. "If he takes the ball INTO the end one, that's gonna be-- uhbeduh, that's gonna be--, uhbeduh that's gonna be a touchdown."

I've actually heard John Madden say things like, "He's either going to play really well today, really bad today, or somehwere in between" and "Well, the thing is, his shoulder was dislocated. And when you have a shoulder dislocation, what it is is your shoulder is dislocated, and that's what a shoulder dislocation is." No kidding.

And then the quote we made up, "Brett Favre could swallow a football, and fart touchdowns."
