I know this kinda impossible to answer, but I want your personal opinion. Last season was the first that I really watched any domestic football. I watched the Premier League and Serie A exclusively because they were (and still are) available as part of the satellite package that I have, without having to pay anymore. This season I think I might spend a bit more to get some of the other European leagues, here is my opinion on them and I want yours.
1) Premier League - Man United is my favourite team and has been since I started watching club football in 2006 after the World Cup. So I won't stop watching it no matter what.
2) Serie A - As I said before I can watch 2 games a week for free anyway. However as of right now it seems to be the more boring, defensive league of the top ones. Roma is my second favourite team though.
3) Bundesliga - The channel that carries it here in Canada is on free preview this month. I've watched a few matches so far and while I don't know as many of the players as I do in other leagues, it seems to be very exciting football. I believe it also has more Canadians than any other European league (with the exception of the Premier League and Football League maybe). Of all of the leagues I'm asking about its the one that I want to know most about from anyone who follows it closely.
4) La Liga - I know it has the best player in the World (Messi) and the second best (Cristiano Ronaldo) and two of the best teams ever, but I can't find myself interested in it except for the two times a season that Barcelona plays Real Madrid. It doesn't help that its games are all played in the afternoon here (primetime in Spain), and I usually like to watch football in the morning because I have other things to do in the afternoon.
So basically I just want your opinion on those leagues as well as Ligue 1, which you will really have to sell me on because there is only one game on a week here in French (I speak enough French to understand), but I don't really want to pay CAN $2 just for that.
Also I don't just want leagues that are good now. I want to watch ones that over the course of time are generally good.
Thanks for your input everyone.5 AnswersOther - Soccer1 decade ago
Ok I'm not very familiar with these bands, but based on the songs I've heard before I like them. So I want you to give me a list of a few good songs by each.
Between the Buried and Me
Bullet for My Valentine
If you can think of any other bands that are similar to these, then include some songs by them too. I don't want too much screaming though. Thanks3 AnswersRock and Pop1 decade ago
At the trade deadline. Be serious, it actually has to make sense for both teams.
For Ottawa I'd like to see them get LeClaire, which I heard could happen. I think Vermette and picks were being thrown around as going to Columbus. As long as they don't trade this year's first pick, I'd like that trade. If they don't get him, I don't mind them waiting until summer for Backstrom or Khabibulin. I think that they made their big trade in getting Campoli to help the defense.
Also I've been gone for a long while, I just haven't had the time to come here with school and other things. I hope I have the time to come here more often during the playoffs. And its nice to see only hockey questions in the hockey section.17 AnswersHockey1 decade ago

I didn't watch all of it, and my french isn't great. For these reasons I won't pick a winner. However, as soon as Harper said that the Canadian banks are very strong, and the Canadian economy is strong, I thought, "This is going to really hurt Harper before the election is over." So I think Harper was the 'loser' of the debate. I have other reasons for this too including how everybody bashed him, especially about listeriosis.
Some other thoughts,
May did better than I expected. She looked a little nervous at first, after about 10 minutes she settled in and started talking more.
Duceppe did a well needed good job.
Dion, he's as hard to understand in french as he is in English to someone who isn't French.
Layton, it appears he really thinks hes got a good shot at becoming the official opposition. He went right after Harper, and he was maybe the most involved early on.
As I said these are based on the first 30 minutes, that's all I watched. Thoughts?4 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago
I'm thinking of going to see the Islanders rookie team vs. UNB on Wednesday. On their website it listed a few players that could be on the NHL team, including Mark Streit. I'm wondering if anyone knows whether these players are playing with the rookie team or if they are playing with the actual Islanders team?1 AnswerHockey1 decade ago
This is actually a hockey question. Anyway earlier today I asked if anybody had any information on the HNIC Launch Concert which will take place in Detroit. Well I've been able to answer my own question. It will be Def Leppard playing that show, it will be held at the Fox Theater in Detroit. This makes an exciting night, more exciting for me. Anybody else excited to see it?9 AnswersHockey1 decade ago
Since there are only about three hockey questions on the front page, I decided to ask one. If you're not going to see an NHL preseason game, will you go see a Canadian Hockey League or University game in the next month? Or any other league?
I might go see a game or two at the University of New Brunswick's Fall Classic tournament this weekend. Also the New York Islanders rookie team will play the University of New Brunswick next Wednesday, I might go see that.11 AnswersHockey1 decade ago

I ask this because I have always enjoyed watching the indoor game at the Olympics. It is the original. However, I do enjoy the beach game as well. Mostly because the indoor game isn't really on TV, except for the Olympics. While AVP tournaments are on all the time.
I think Indoor wins for me.13 AnswersVolleyball1 decade ago
What do you think the percentage is? I think maybe 50% hockey questions, 25% AT&T questions, 25% other questions.9 AnswersHockey1 decade ago
I have the #3 pick in my College Fantasy Football draft later this morning. I'll admit I don't know a lot about College Football, I only have the time to watch the odd game on TV. With over 100 teams its hard to have saw all the top players play. So who should I draft? I'm thinking either Tim Tebow or Chase Daniel. I think they are worth drafting with my first pick. To me the other option would be Knowshon Moreno. Thoughts?2 AnswersFantasy Sports1 decade ago
I have the 12th and 13th overall picks, in a 12 team snake draft. I'm thinking Marian Barber and Randy Moss. All of the really big players should be gone by then. Then I'm hoping either Brees will fall far enough I can get him with the 24th pick. Sound like a good idea? If not what are some players I should consider who may be left by then?6 AnswersFantasy Sports1 decade ago
