Rugby league was quite decent this afternoon as England beat New Zealand at Anfield, hat trick of tries from Tommy Makinson.

1) F1
2) Rugby League
3) Boxing

Football has become a yawn fest of diving and cheating hosted by pundits who condone it with crap comments like "there was contact, he had a right to go down".

The way football is going these days I think that there will be more contact in tiddlywinks than will be allowed in the next Football World Cup.

The thread was just going along fine with sensible people and then bang - braincell turned up.

You must have better things to do with your time, than to troll a football messageboard.

"10 years ago I would never had believed that I would ever make such a list where football was not clear top."

Football is only marginally ahead of Rugby League now, and I too would never have thought that
football would fall out of favour and be in danger of being replaced as my favourite sport.

Maybe it's an age thing.
