Nothing says a secure winner like someone who echoes hangook77.
Yes, Marti I know how important your internet victories are for you.
I declare you the winner of the thread, congrats!
Enjoy you're evening and weekend.
I've got a months paid vacation myself and I'm heading to the coast for some serious fishing!
All  the while I'll be envious that I'm not such a Korean American legend like you! :sad:

Well, to be fair the thread title was about Sport reform. When I initially engaged, the suggestion I made for American football to harden up and do away with the protective clothing, i.e. to reform themselves. You'll notice I ceased to engage in Marti's "dick-measuring contest".
According to Chopper Reid, Australia needs to harden the F$%k up. Great bit if you've never seen it.

The op said: "Post your ideas for reforms to sports and sports leagues."

There is NEVER  tie in any sport. Have whatever skills comp needed to decide.

I don't pay a bunch and wait a long time to feel ambivalent. We win or lose today! Gladiator logic.

NFL wake the f*** up.
Soccer, too.

That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

I suspect you're referring to Heath Franklin, comic impersonator of Chopper Reid, but, yes it has been part of the shtick for my contribution to this thread.  ;D
I assume you know the real life character, Mark Brandon Reid. He was quite a harsh fellow. 

This was a portrayal of him by Eric Bana, of Incredible Hulk fame.

As a Canadian, I have played ice hockey (the most dangerous sport for cheapshot high speed injuries), hIgh school football (TE bench 180 lbs. to just make the team) but my home town had no rugby teams (B.C. west coast Canada). Wish we had. Rugby players seemed to have the biggest shoulders and thickest necks, toughest guys. I have never even seen a live rugby game. I saw two cricket games in Canada, something my football teammate and best bud has never seen.

The fact that you have a month's paid vacation, live in another country, and spend any consistent time here is a sign of some sort of deep emptiness and loneliness.

Mostly undersized mullet. Hiring a boat from tomorrow, should have better luck. Plenty of fish around if I can avoid the most destructive force in human history for long enough.

Since it's illegal here and this is a Korean-based website... nah.

I'm almost entirely certain that the servers are located in Canada, actually.
But international law is always a bit hazy when dealing with online stuff, so best to err on the side of caution, I suppose.  :smiley:

Thanks very much! Nothing like looking at a picture of you on the beach, with the sun shining and the sky so blue, when I'm looking out my window at a miserable, cloudy day. Cheers!!!

Caught anything? You need to put your rod in a stand. Also, your right leg looks burned   :wink:
Anywho, back on topic!
