I was told this forum was global, but I will ask the question anyway. This Sunday is Superbowl Sunday, when at least in the USA and countries that have US Military bases millions of sports watchers will be glued to the TV to watch the final glorious football game of the season. The sports involved is often overhshadowed by the very good commercials.

I will be watching, cheering and drinking with my friends.

Not planning on watching. I'm kind of sports-agnostic (or maybe the proper term would be sports-apathetic) , if that makes any sense.

It's on a Sunday, and my religion does not allow me partake in such spectacles and the associated sinful behaviour.

Good Lord, I feel sorry for you!

The Patriots will stomp the Giants and make Dwarfs out of them!

Not decided. I've never watched it so maybe I should... on the other hand I don't know what time it's going to be on Irish time.

Damn straight, man! This is the biggest event of the year! However, you are mistaken.. There is another football game.. The pro bowl :)

I agree!

> I was told this forum was global,

This fact still holds true. You seem to be having some weird notion of what global *actually* means.

BTW, I am with EnderX on this one.

Yes I'll be watching, but only on a delayed broadcast.

So for myself, and many others who won't be watching it live, we would collectively appreciate if people didn't post messages with the final score in the topic title (for example).

HA! There's nothing nearly as fun about American Football as Real Futbal. And the thing is, American Football is fun. The World Cup murders the hell out of the Superbowl. We all know. Let's just stop pretending :P

Bahhhhh... I've NEVER even seen the world cup! I don't even know what time/day/year the damn thing comes on.. In fact, I think ESPN broadcasts ping pong over the world cup! :)

Now I am getting curious too dear sos, pray tell me what does global "actually" mean?

Hey, we are almost there!!!! Just 24 hours away! Time to get excited, honed, stoned and have fun fun fun! Hell with the hangover!

I will watch it for the beer and pizza party, the halftime show, and the Budwiser commercials. I also hope to see some more or less spectacular plays! Maybe somebody runs over a ref for the fun of it.

It's true, Budwiser does make your bud wiser.

I've never liked American football -- too boring. European football (socker to us Americans) I like alot. So the answer to the poll is NO, I will not, nor have I ever, watched the Super Bowl. Instead I'll watch old Law And Order reruns, or Perry Mason if its on TV.

This is for not liking real football. Watch it, and you'll like it.

What religion is that? And why is it sinful? (Unless you're referring to the drinking, etc.)

I'm curious as to why you're so certain it's Christianity. If you're going to bash my religion because you don't understand it, I feel I deserve to know why.

0

I'm curious too.. especially considering that Christians aren't against football.. or alcohol (in the most part).

Simple, we don't want people to go all "Remember, this is mostly a European and American audience". It doesn't matter which country the majority of the audience is from since we don't base our decisions on that factor. We cater/treat each and every member the same way and in the same light irrespective of the country they belong. Hence, deliberately posting things aimed to cause discomfort to a particular religion is discouraged.

This also means keeping your hate list to yourself. We have had cases of people expressing their dislike to a particular culture/person/religion and make a huge issue out of it. On some other forum we had a sucker who thought all Muslims were terrorists; he was of course banned. We have seen suckers acting all high and mighty just because they thought that being from *The Privileged Country*, they could spit out any amount of BS they wanted, which is obviously dead wrong.

In short, anything which hampers / hurts the community spirit in view of the fact that the community is formed by *members* of Daniweb and not some people from country A or country B. The decision of what exactly crosses the line is subject to the result of the discussion carried out by the entire mod community.

PS: Just to keep matters clear, any references to 'you' or 'your' don't point to ZZucker but are used to drive across a point in general.

GO PATS!!! Yes I will be watching the superbowl. Sad part is my brother-in-law is a Giants fan. He's gonna be sad today, lol.

I reckon I'll watch some of it anyways. Turns out it's on two channels I have. Wasn't certain I could watch it before now. Who should I support? (First team mentioned wins)
