Just an observation here but all the sports forums are for American sports. Pehaps there should be a general sports forum or something like that. Is this a predominantely American board?

Yes. Don't be holding your breath for any forum on Australian rules football, mate.

Predominantly North American, really; this place is lousy with Canadians...

The football forum has historically done some double-duty for European/World football as well as American.

Other than that, if you want to talk about a sport not reflected in the titles Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Hockey, you're best off putting it in the Random folder.

I'd also heartily recommend against asking for another forum to be created...

Which is a shame, as I still maintain Aussie Rules is the single coolest sport on the planet. Problem is that much like American football it takes a bit of watching for it to make any sense at all. *pleased that his Pies have moved up to 5th on the ladder*

Random seems to be reserved for pop culture news....I know that anytime I start a golf thread, it dies pretty quickly.

I can't imagine that a whole folder devoted to 'other' sports (golf, auto racing, soccer, tennis, etc.) would get enough threads to be worthwhile. Hell, I dunno if even hockey gets enough, and this is coming from a diehard Leafs fan.

All right, I'm enjoying Rhyno's "man-beast" gimmick: He keeps his hair long, wears full-body wrestling tights with a big "R" on the back and uses the "Rhino Gore" as his finishing move. Can't you imagine him watching the Discovery Channel one day while tossing around possible gimmicks and having one of those "Hey, wait a second!" epiphanies during a rhino segment?

To spruce things up, the WWF should give Undertaker and Kane last names -- like Undertaker and Kane O'Brien, the O'Brien Brothers -- just for comedy's sake. Hopefully the door's still open.

RVD is approaching the always-exciting "The crowd loves him, but he's not getting a major push yet" phase which helps makes wrestling so much fun. It only happens once every few years -- Stone Cold in '96, The Rock in '98, Shawn Michaels in '93 and so on. -- ESPN's Bill Simmons back in 2001

Y'see you put auto racing in there, and I was thinking you were listing SPORTS...

CRZ or Guru Zim-- I've seen this twice now in the Wrestling folder, but is there something that can be done about thread titles that say *spoiler* but then include a brief description of what the spoiler is in the threat title?
