Bill Burr sums up every football vs football argument on /sp/, ever, in under 10 min
it actually does cheapen the sport considerably. Not sure how you can argue that widely accepted fact, no matter how European you are.
The NBA is taking steps to combat diving, why don't soccer leagues take a page out of their book and at least try to discourage diving instead of constantly defending it?
Maybe you should watch it before commenting eh. He tackles multiple sports. Including problems with apehoop.
Literally EVERY American feels this way though. See, you have probably been fooled seeing American flags saying differently. You weren't aware these were illegal Mexicans. Not to worry, though... they will soon be deported.
>tfw you tried desperately to enjoy Bill's show F is for Family, but couldn't get into it
I love you Ol Billy Redface but it wasn't a good show guys...
>why don't soccer leagues take a page out of their book and at least try to discourage diving
some leagues do more than others, but you'd know that if you watched literally any of them.
He's always been an SJW faget.
youtube Bill Burr vs Anthony Cumia, if you don't wanna listen to the whole thing/all parts, i think it's right at the beginning of part 2, Cumia calmly asks him "What happened to you in life that instilled so much white guilt..." and before he can even finish Burr just starts chimping out about how YOU JUST LOST! I WIN! YOU LOSE! YOU JUST CAPITULATED THE ARGUMENT! HURR DURR WHY ARE YOU SUCH A FUCKIN DOUCHEBAG - YOU LOST!
Ant's like lol, no, that's not what happened Billy... Even Norton backs Cumia up during the nonsense, because of course Ope didn't.
Now as for all this benefit talk, do you have a source for all this?
have never found him funny. wish i did. because i like to laugh. he's just so base though. lots of generalizations and blue collar pandering that just bore the shit out of me.
>fuckin' (group) always doing (stereotypical thing) like (mocking voice, maybe an unimaginative comparison/simile)
y a w n
Basically the entire English speaking Anglosphere outside of bongistan feels this way, and refers to it as soccer. Bros4lyfe
i will admit, he can be great... but he can also be awful and go into a hack southern stereotype or something. but once you get linked to a bill burr video, it's hard not to get lost in a loop because he's got some GOAT talk show appearances, he's always on his best there.
I'm not the one who brought it up, Jean-Luc-Pierre
It's funny how he can't stop talking about sports. I've been linked to 3 different Burr videos on 4chan tonight, and every time he ends up sportstalkan it up at some point
get a load of these patricians. wew lads, we're all impressed.
>It's funny how he can't stop talking about sports. I've been linked to 3 different Burr videos on 4chan tonight, and every time he ends up sportstalkan it up at some point
Sports is the one topic, aside from comedy, that he's confidant he's very knowledgable about. People stick to their strengths. That's why he's always got a sports analogy to make sense of whatever he's talking about.
I don't mind bill burr but that was pretty stupid.
We hate diving too, but he talks about it like it happens every time someone gets the ball.
Sure you can pick out exaggerated cases from YouTube, but it doesn't happen as much as bill suggests
>soccer is a beautiful game
He doesn't know what he's talking about, he makes no sense.
anyone who's ever played "soccer" on a semi-competitive level knows - when someone hack at your leg it fucking hurts, A LOT.
>b-but le divegrass, look at them, 1 minute they're in pain, next they're up and running like it's nothing
Yeah, that's how it works, idiot.
I don't think you amerifats can quite understand just how irrelevant your football is here. Much more than soccer is in america.
But that's why these football vs football arguments so fun, because no one knows what anyone is talking about.
This clip was from 2012 m8, he has actually watched more soccer since.
He was more aggravated by the person sending him passive aggressive shit about Americans and poked fun at him and the sport to get people upset.
Literally the only place good comics come from.
But you already knew that, which is why you said it to troll me.
He's so right about diving in soccer and the last minute in an NBA game.
If they changed both of those aspects it would improve the sport.
Why can't they get a yellow card for faking an injury?
Burr is your typical American sports "fan"
>didn't see any of the our last 5 games but GO BRUINS
>caught the last 4 minutes of the Celtics game, WE'RE LOOKING GOOD THIS YEAR, TEAM
>GO PATS but I can't name 5 of our players
>caring if your gladiators get damaged
we should just make pillow fighting the only acceptable form of physical competition, and so help me god if you twist that pillow case I will give you a pink card (red is too powerful of a color and can trigger fans)
100%, we enjoy sports but act like we have to invest 30 hours a week to be called a 'fan'. we actually have other things to do in our country aside from waiting in our 1 bedroom concrete windowless apartment and wait for one of our 3 channels to show kickball
>we actually have other things to do in our country
Weirdest argument to 'Americans don't watch sports', a fair observation when you consider the popularity of Redzone i.e. sport coverage filtered down to the barebones, dispassionate action in a sport, that I think I was expecting.
Worst part was that it was entirely serious.
How sad of a person would you have to be to spend so much time worrying about how seriously people take your sports opinions?
>I bet people at this party didnt even waatch serie b, fuckin casuals
are you really implying we don't watch spots anonkun? our sports industry probably makes in a week what your country does in 3 years. we just have an actual entertaining sport, so the people in your country who say "fuck soccer m8 shits gay" at least watch the highlights of our superior football
who gives a fuck? I guess golf and boxing are the GOAT sports judging by per-event revenue or athlete salaries
I'm just patiently explaining to you why your little opinions on sawker don't get much traction overseas
sports in america is just another entertainment media like movies or videogames, and I know that you will reply with "of course it is, what else would it be?" just proving my point.
you're missing the key point that we don't care, every once in awhile we just like to gloat about it.
>hurr crippling inability to pay for anything but 2 channels with shit soap operas and one sport
>hurr the poorest of the poor in the US live in what most badfootball countries would call upper middle class at least
what are sports to you? a way of life? sorry that we actually have other things to worry about [spoiler] like our gender pronouns [/spoiler]
No, I wasn't saying that. What the Irishfag said was that Americans do not watch sports with enough context nor regularity to be other than a dilettante in said conversations. This is, in my honest opinion of Americans that I personally know, totally sound and correct.
I do not believe, for example, that watching Redzone means you have watched several games at once. I believe it means you've watched zero games and cannot maintain a discussion in any of those games outside of the core plays.
gloating about not caring sure seems like caring
I don't think I've ever seen anyone so vigorous about telling others how much they don't care about something than American on soccer. Count the number of Yuro threads about American sports. Now THAT's not caring
>I believe it means you've watched zero games and cannot maintain a discussion in any of those games outside of the core plays.
you, and every single real american football fan. it's extremely common for people to namedrop obscure shit like the Tight End coach and if you don't know it you're called a shit fan and mocked
i'm sure there are brit working class dipshits who read about the soccer games then go talk about it over the water cooler, we all have those people
>americans talking about stuff they dont understand, yet again
true, for that one league you com pretty close. about 1/3
m8 someone from your country just said people who just watch redzone are considered true fans in murica and not mocked
It was alright. It's just that every character outside of the main family characters are just empty, static cutouts. The family itself aside from the rebel son is fun to watch, and it hits on some good themes about self worth and middle age and what not in a more realistic way.
>m8 someone from your country just said people who just watch redzone are considered true fans in murica and not mocked
Except that isn't what I said you absolute fuckwit, what I said was that people who do that should not outwardly classify themselves as a fan of any team.
Mate you can love contact sports but the brain damaged bit is plain retarded. I fucking love rugby and this whole country does, but we don't stand up and start applauding when someone is clearly apoplectic after taking a hit.
Contact sports aren't just fat blobs running into each other and trivialising american football and rugby like that is ridiculous.
although I like burr, I'll admit he acted like a child throughout that entire discussion. The fact people in the comments are claiming he "destroyed" anthony says a lot about the average intelligence of a yt commenter.
They really don't tho. There's occasionally a punishment for embellishment in the top leagues, but there's really no marked decrease in diving. It's fucking disgraceful.
Yea Bill just goes above and beyond when people send him stupid shit.
He watches a shitton of sport whenever he can tho, and I'm with him on the fact that a lot of soccer is just boring as shit
