I had no idea what rugby was, it was only when I moved to Queensland that I saw it on TV and it suxs. It’s just a bunch of fat guys with no necks runny into each other. Didn't a player get banned from playing because he stuck his finger up another guys butt hole?

didn't i state that earlier?

Hey, I resent that somewhat. I'm pretty confident that we might even win a match in the next Ashes. Might.

...i think that that whole "stereotypical american thing" is a really loose assumption. afterall, combining things into heaps of stereotypes is what leads people to be ignorant about cultures anyway. also, america is made up of all of these cultures that we are talking about...so any point based on a "stereotypical american" is a moot point in the first place.

Most people don't hate America, most people couldn't care less. Just like America, the vast majority of people everywhere are ignorant, caring only about the small piece of world around them. The people you hear complaining about America are the vocal minority. The informed among them don't hate Americans or America, but hate its questionable foreign policy. The rest are just the uninformed followers (those that 'hate' America but buy into American culture).

America has done a lot of good and a lot of bad, name a country that hasn't?

People always hate the superpower. Thats how is goes and always will. There are more reasons for this, including a lot of stereotypes but I dont want to offend anyone on here with that sort of talk.
