1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Football doesn’t blood test.
    It urine tests.

    I would place decathlon, Olympic marathon & professional boxing ahead of this as far as being the toughest goes. All take extreme levels of natural ability, fitness, coordination, endurance & mental strength.
    Football is more to do with natural ability, physical endurance & coordination with team mates, takes time to reach the accepted level but once there it's quite easy to maintain.

    British bulldog is by far the most violent and dangerous game. We played it at school until the number of broken bones became more that parents would accept. It was the best game for kicking the shit out of school bullies with impunity.

    Much as I love watching road racing and admire the skill and bravery of the riders I think you have to have "something missing" to participate.

    ^Fear of the consequences of falling off - that's all. Not a big deal really..

    Nobody has no fear of falling off, or at least not for long. I've known fearless climbers, after a fall and serious injury they soon wake up. I'm sure motorcyclists are the same. In addition, anyone who really thinks that schoolboys playing bulldog is a patch on 2 adults going toe to toe in a ring for 3 x 3 minutes is deluded. Now try 10 x 3 minutes.
