But other than that we're pretty cool, right?

Since we bomb everyone who dare disagree with us, better get ready to duck, eh?

Brush up on your over the top hyperbole.

Well, there you go. Some of us are overly sensitive, but on the whole we tend to keep both our collective sense of humour and our sense of manners. Don't worry neighbour...I'm sure FSMthewayshegoes is just having a bad day.

right...
Americans travel with Canadian flags sown on everything for a reason...
Like the American press did during the invasion of Iraq, or like backpackers do in Europe.

Canadians earned the right to wear that flag.
We wonder whats all the fuss about respecting the American flag,
when so many of the people from the US then go and choose to wear ours.

First you say this
[Quote]We are not aggressive, we are not worried about Britan.[/Quote]

And then you say this

[Quote]Screw America. you guys are a bunch of inbred hick gay beating British wanna be losers.

And don't say different cuz I know your kind, America is the Gooch of the world.

You start wars you steal resources and you bomb anyone that questions your motives.

you even kill your own people to make a compelling story you twisted jack asses.

You messed up the ocean. And you won't even accept that you caused the spill by LETTING BP drill for oil in unsafe conditions.

CUBA IS COOL *Snip* AMERICA.[/Quote]

This is mostly true.

however most Canadians I have talked to would fist fight me for saying it. There is this snarky sense superiority that people of any given nation have. Just another example of how they are so similar to us (except a little more tree hugging, like living in Wyoming or Colorado).


I love trees!

You dissing our soccer team of such fine young men? Come on, we have only been in the FIFA WC twice; give us time...our soccer boys will reach the same great heights as their rugby brothers and you will fear them too




Are you serious ?

New Zealand were the second worst team in the World Cup ( only better than North Korea ), and it irritates me that such a rubbish team can even compete in a major tournament, when there are far more deserving countries that could have taken New Zealand's place.

Any team that boasts Ryan Nelsen as their 'star' player has no right to be anywhere near the World Cup.


Did you actually watch the games that NZ played ? Do you know anything about football ?

Slovakia ( second weakest European qualifier )... The Slovaks bossed the game, New Zealand stuck 10 men behind the ball, and hoped for a goal on the counter-attack or set piece, and scrape a draw in the dying seconds of the game.

Italy ( the worst Italian side in living memory ), and the only way that New Zealand were able to score, was through a patently offside goal ( Smeltz was a yard off ), Italy scored the equaliser, but despite their territorial dominance, couldn't break through the All Whites, who were once again sticking 10 men behind the ball, and hoping for scraps.

Paraguay ( already qualified for the next round, and never got out of second gear ) totally pwned New Zealand in their final group game, and I have to say that the All Whites performance was cowardly and pathetic.

New Zealand, once again, stuck 10 men behind the ball and hoped for a miracle, and ended up with 0 shots on goal throughout the whole match, despite needing a win to qualify for the next round.

The All Whites display against Paraguay was the most cowardly and pathetic display of any team that I've seen in twenty years of watching the World Cup.


Your suggestion that NZ were the ''most respected team in football'' is laughable.
Football fans throughout the world won't even remember that New Zealand participated in the WC, let alone have any kind of ''respect'' for their cowardly, anti-football exploits.


New Zealand All Whites: Joke football team, Joke football nation, crap players, but I like Ricky Herbert, he's a good manager.



If you watched the World Cup, then you'll have noticed that Uruguay won a large number of plaudits, due to their skill, and the passion and commitment that the players displayed while representing their country ( hello NZ
... )

If you think that the All Whites will ''improve'' upon their shameful performance, in future years, then you've got another think coming ! And some realisation to attend to.

I don't think that NZ will even scrape in to the World Cup in 2014, because the Asian sides are getting stronger. No more easy ride against Bahrain !

He is correct. We have our own identity. We are not Americans. We are as similar as we are different. Calling a Canuck an American will likely get your face pushed back a few inches. May seem silly but that's the way we are.


Whatever Yankee...and NO...Hockey is NOT a sport!

There...I said it!

I guess Yankees wouldn't see hockey as a sport... considering that's how we managed to beat the Soviets, sending the Soviet team to "re-training" camps
