    Did you ever follow the London/England Monarchs or NFL Europe?

    I did a bit when it was on Sky Sports 23 years but more into highlights and the history of Gridiron.

    Well considering it is by far the most popular sport in Ireland I am certain he does <Goldie11>

    Though Conor played soccer. In any case popularity =/= best sport, otherwise we would have to say that cricket is the second best sport in the world...

    Which is ludicrous of course.

    "Though Conor played soccer. In any case popularity =/= best sport, otherwise we would have to say that cricket is the second best sport in the world..."

    "best sport" is subjective. Soccer is the greatest and best sport in the world.

    Cricket is probably the biggest sport in pakistan, bangladesh & india ... lol ... that alone = 1.5 - 2b people.


    We are not here to take part we are here to take over.

    There is no possible way someone from Ireland is not familiar with them.

    Soccer is the 'greatest' in the sense of " Remarkable or outstanding in magnitude, degree, or extent: a great crisis; great anticipation." because it is so popular and the world cup and euros are on such an awesome scale. It is also a good sport to watch. It is the "greatest" because of the magnitude, but it is not the "best". Not as good as what happens here:

    Rugby is also better, but I can see why it doesn't appeal to some people. Australian football is yet another football code which is superior :)


    Aye, and it's shite that is precisely my point ;)

    Are you really trying to compare this shitshow with the world's finest sport?
    Their ranking system is based on subjective opinion of bribed journalists. Things like "Instagram followers" and "trash talk" are important to get a title shot in the UFC. LOL.
    On the other hand, football has a ranking system with an objective and mathematical criteria. It's a real sport.

    Does Ultimate fighting have anything equivalent to this?



    I did not think so. The skill level of Ultimate fighting is so low.

    Not when your country is playing in the knockout stage of a world cup tournament imo. That happens rarely though
