I am opposed to mutual bonding unless you do it my way.

I am left. I used to be in the military for 12 years. I never burned a flag. But I also couldn´t care less if you burned the flag of my country because it is only a piece of cloth representing an artificially created political entity.

This.

I think the only non football subjects allowed in this thread should be British food and kicking puppies.

What's wrong with British food?

I'm French, I gotta take shot at you guys. Other wise civilisation as we know it would collapse.

Don't say it too loud, but I love fish and chips, and marmite. Irish beer is better than yours though

Okay, I forgive you.

Must admit I love a baked camembert with garlic.

You got me hungry.

One thing you guys have better than us (on top of Rugby World Cups won), is national anthems. All 3 are beautiful.

Watching rugby in a pub packed with British people is always embarrassing when it comes to singing. Even drunk as mfers I remember them singing very well, beautiful songs, while we couldn't sing our stupid salacious songs correctly to save our lives.

You gotta admit we got the better food though, otherwise the South West of France wouldn't be invaded by British retirees every summer...

The scene in "Casablanca" where Victor Laszlo leads the French in singing "La Marseillaise" to drown out the German soldiers singing German drinking songs is quite moving, though.

Yeah I usually stay away from Fuller but I think with Fuller in the last year of his contract, he even hired a personal trainer to work on his body, now he is only WR on the team that Watson has a great rapport with, and him falling to 10th round. I felt it's worth taking the risk on Fuller. We will see how long that lasts though.

I drink Guinness so I'm saying nothing.

Except at least we don't eat garden pests and pond life...

I might be the exception as Englishmen go but I don't like our anthem. Too slow and stoic. At least La Marseillaise has a good tempo. Given the choice I'd prefer Rule Brittania.

Actually I've never eaten frog... But I love snails. By far not the weirdest French food though ^^

La Marseillaise is a nice popular song and it can be electrifying when sung by thousands of people... but I think it doesn't even come close to the beautiful, powerful and kinda sad majesty of God Save the Queen or Flower of Scotland. The later gives me chills every time.

Re: Around the NFL Week 1

( Nothing like a good old food, beer and thousand years old love-hate relationship talk to move on from political talk, right ? )

Back to football, lot of exciting match ups tomorrow !

Most obvious one being Bucs @ Saints division match up, TB debuts in Tampa vs a very good New Orleans team.
On paper the Saints have an impressive roster, they bulked up their secondary and should be a top NFC seed.

Quite intrigued to see how the Pats and the entire AFCEast division are going to look like too.
