One star because every time I submit a funny or cool baseball or football clip, it gets turned down in the hopper. I don't care that soccer's European and thus trendy! Screw you fickle sports voters!
It's also the most popular sport in the world and is immediately understandable even to those who have not been instructed regarding the rules, unlike Baseball and American Football.
I played on the US National U-17 team and traveled all over Europe getting our arse kicked by teams from Russia (those kids had full beards), the UK, and Holland. My butt still hurts from that trip and I agree it seems to be quite a popular sport in other countries. I'm just saying that this indie hipster ironic 1980's sunglasses culture of POE needs to stop worrying about what's trendy and just enjoy clips that define "Port Of Evil". Dick. (Yeah I suck too, if I was retorting my own statement I'd say "wooo, you've been to Russia? you must be Mr. Big Shot").
BTW, how hard is it to understand baseball? Dude. Fuckity fuck fuck.
MacGyver Style Bomb
Perhaps you and The Snake can get together to complain about video games.
The fact that your sports videos don't make it past the hopper probably means they are either unfunny or uninteresting. POEtv actually has a quite extensive sports video collection.
Here's how you make it on the main page:
I'm not indie, or a fucking hipster, I use the word "irony" where it's correct to use it, I don't use the word "random" unless it actually means something RANDOM, as opposed to arbitrary - I still get mad when people use it wrong in everyday life like "I just randomly called you" and I have to tell them that no, they fucking didn't, they didn't roll a die with people's names on them or spin a big fucking wheel of telephone numbers or blindfold themselves and jab away at the phone and luckily my number just came up out of the millions of possibilities.
Stop being a whiny fucking asshole because some videos you posted didn't make it out of the hopper. Shit. What the fuck do you want? Everyone's different. Some people vote things down. Sometimes you only get four votes. It's life.
Here's another mind-blowing thought. Some people are just legitimately not interested in sports. For a lot of people, sports are fucking boring to watch. Any sports. There's a lot more fascinating shit in the wide world out there. Check out TED some time, or just look up anything your heart desires on Youtube. If I have a choice between sports or "hey, I wonder if anyone's ever made clown porn? Oh look, yeah, here's some." I'll take the clown porn, just because it'll actually be entertaining. Hell, just about anything will be more entertaining.
Also 5 for the video because I played soccer in 4th through 7th grade before I finally decided to hang it up because I got in trouble for hurting the smaller kids. I liked hurting the smaller kids. And this guy sucks as a goalie.
it should be noted that although sjohnson is overreacting, this clip isn't that amazing
Thanks, and yes, I am overreacting. Also, as longwinded (ironically) pointed out, I'm just saying this is a shit clip. I could care less about what clips of mine get chosen or not. Seriously, it does not hurt my feelings if my clip doesn't make it past the hopper. I'm just saying if this is a sports blooper reel, then let's not discriminate. Also, even though I like and played sports, it doesn't mean I'm Biff from Back to the Future - I am an equal opportunity clown-porn watcher. (Gotta go, the game's on.)
To be honest, I too was expecting something more based on the video description. Oh well.
And yet, this video is still better than the many videos I've submitted & got shot down in the hopper, as evidenced by the fact that they never saw the light of the front page. *Sigh*
Someday, I'll get the hang of "good video submissions". But today is not that day.
I have 2 on the front page right now, counting this.
What are you talking about? Everything I submit goes straight on the front page.
Suck it, hopper-bitches.
sjohnson you are the worst new user to come here in a long time. That being said I hope you keep coming here so that your hurting butt can be pried open and filled with searing hot Chic-fil-A grade degradation.
Baseball is much more interesting to watch than soccer because the score can never be 1-1 or some stupid bullshit. And it's aesthetically beautiful and a great place to fraternize with racist bookies and women with large breasts. All of you that hate baseball in essence hate America and you deserve to lose your jobs which probably don't exist in the first place and then blow some guy just so you can intern at Lenscrafters. I hate all you stupid fucks and your stupid Xbox 360 inspired sports decisions, you traitorous dick cocks with shit inside.
Baseball is neat, mostly for the movies based on it. It has the potential to set up some incredibly tense situations, and those situations are best handled by a screenwriter because they almost never happen in real life.
Soccer can't do that. When you make a soccer movie you have to tack on a plot about some girl from India defying her parents because there are no potentially tense situations for screenwriters to exploit in soccer. This is also why Shaolin Soccer is the only soccer film ever made.
American football has tremendous potential for screenwriter exploitation but due to the increasing importance of foreign markets this rarely happens anymore. But on the other hand, Friday Night Lights was a damn good show.
There is no such thing as Basketball.
Friday Night Lights was a great movie. So was Eight Men Out. I mean, this is American history here, not some yabbo fantasia.
I got one star towards your education
I traveled near and far all around every nation
Soccer got me down like a hipster on probation
Poe fails my standards of video application
First world problems.

we all have days like that. thank god nobody caught me on video the day I marked the entire source control depot on a 60-person project for deletion.

Maybe we've got it all wrong here and that, in essence, it was an amazing shot for a throw-in.

I for one would like to see a Venn diagram of the Sports category and Accidents & Explosions

Fuck you Peter Slippy Feet, to this day i still remember the ribbing i got from friends(none of them brum supporters, but they all wanted Villa to lose). Sadly Peter Slippyfeet had more errors to give in both derby matches that season resulting in two losses to the hated Brum.
