More controversial statements

Given how many comments I got last time, here's a few more to stir the pot. Some of them I might believe and some of them I might not...

1 99.99% of obese people are porky because they EAT TOO MUCH FOOD.

2 Anyone who starts a sentence with the words "I'm not racist, but..." is probably just about to be a little bit racist.

3 Football is a more interesting sport to watch than rugby.

4 The English Patient is one of the worst films ever made.

5 Happy, pretty women in a heterosexual relationship don't hate men.

Well knowing Jon I would say he is actually a great fan of The English Patient film.

He's such a romantic...

Ok, to put it another way: Most 'man-haters' are single, depressed women with issues over their weight and/or their looks. Their hate stems from their unrequited desire for companionship, but ironically it makes it much less likely for them to ever find that which they seek.

Happy now?

Well, oh controversial great-one, I am unsure as to where to begin. First and foremost your reply to Starinajar is a slight (meteoric)generalisation about single women (depressed and unattractive I think you suggested.) I am not going to waste my digit motion on arguing that point.
However, more irritating than that was football beng better to watch than rugby. GO LEICESTER TIGERS!!!! Least us civilised egg chasers don't have to beat people up like the majority of football fans! I shall rant no longer oh great one!

My generalisation was about 'man-haters' so doesn't apply to the many lovely single women I know.

Yeah, yeah, football fans are hooligans. Heard that one before. It's the classic line of rugby fans who can't bear to admit a free-flowing game of football is much more exciting than two groups of men grunting in the mud and play being stopped because someone's put a foot in the wrong place...

I think you should come and see the Tigers playing, and watch the speed and free flowing rugby that they often display (not always...I grant you) it isn't always grunting in the mud, and anyway, whats wrong with a bit of macho mud grunting?

Generally, the only free flowing thing I've seen in football is spittle. Those men spit all the time! Ych a fi! and they forget that they have to fall down in that when they get tired of football and want to try diving instead.
