I keep forgetting to add my new predictions (not that I would have guessed Switzerland 1-0 Spain, but would have gotten a few more).

New update looks great :good: Pity my internet connection is being a bitch right now and it's taking ages to do anything.

You should add an extra system for us to bet on how many blatantly wrong decisions are made by the referee in every game... :good:

Lol... Might add a comments box so you can share your complaints about them :good: I haven't seen either Spain match, but I don't believe they've not fouled, and I was pretty sure of some bias towards the Port's, but seems it wouldn't have made a difference if they had picked up a couple of cards!

Bansh, I think you and Consior benefited most, but because your percentage moved you up, you'll fall quicker if you start to make mistakes! I'm happy with the change, it seems more fluid. You also all now have a rating out of 5, translated into Reserve (0), Substitute (1), Player (2), Star Player (3), Captain (4) or Champion (5). Only shown in your login box, and just because I could, but it'll give a rough idea of how well you're doing overall compared to the field as a fraction/5.

Some of these last matches look tougher to call though! Mexico vs Uruguay? France vs South Africa? Denmark vs Japan? My heart always says YES, MEXICO! but my gut always says, noo, Mexican!

Guhhh... Americans are now all of a sudden getting interested in the sport. It was just last year Americans infamously hated foot-sock ball and now all of a sudden they act interested and put it on all their electric television sets and radio devices. A friend of mine who always has that ESPN show thing on his TV... well it usually shows oval-foot ball and baseball and all that crap but now it seems like it has to show foot-sock ball 24/7. Neh... makes no sense. But Africa all the way for me I suppose... like it matters.

Its good that Americans are starting to appreciate it, it means they're coming a long way in this world. I just hate American sports because they're designed to score highly for instant gratification of viewers with short attention spans, then they throw in enough timeouts and game-stoppers to make it more boring than if they just played for 90mins without a goal!
It'll probably die down once America gets kicked out, the Aussies walk off as soon as their side starts to loose a game, if SBS (Special Broadcasting Service, AKA Sex and Bloody Soccer) wasn't run by a Hungarian former-football-player, it probably wouldn't be broadcast here at all!
And because its been bugging me, Soccer's from an abbreviation of "Association Football," not from the fact they wear socks :good:

Vuvuzelas suck. That is all. And did I even spell that correctly?

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.
Razgriz intrerpretation

A draw, making both Mexico and Uruguay move on to the next round and kicking out France and SA.

France vs South Africa?


South Africa. France deserted on the training, they've completely lost interest in the tournament.

Denmark vs Japan?


Tough one, but I'll go with Denmark.
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

Agree on all of the above predictions.

American sports are ridiculous, mainly because Americans are the only ones who play them. Over here we've been playing rounders in school for centuries, but you changed a couple of things and made it into baseball, which then became more or less your national sport. It's a school game. Basketball, I will admit, is quite entertaining. American football, though, is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. You switch around the entire team based on whether you're attacking or defending, you wear so many pads you could bounce off an enraged grizzly bear and you don't use your feet. The least you guys could have done is come up with a halfway decent name for the sport. Fake-rugby, perhaps? Fugby? Lameball? Advert-ball?
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.

American Football (it's also been known as Gridiron) is a decent sport once you remove the constant breaks, change-overs and adverts. 60 minutes playing time somehow ends up as 4 hours. Of course, when people moan, the American's say we just don't understand tactical games. Reducing the body armour would be preferable too - it's not padding, padding is what Rugby players have.

I'll stick to my cricket and football no matter what though :good:

Canadian Handegg's quite good. Narrower pitch and less breaks, so more action and less pratting about trying to justify commercial breaks. Essentially, its Gridiron as it should be, but will still always fall behind Rugby and never approach Football.

Wow! I'm doing so good in Jeeves's game that I had to screenshot a special moment, right after the Uruguay vs Mexico game. With 9 points, I already have a bunch of trophies and I'm in 5th place... in a better rank than people with 23 more matches than I have :D.

I have the lowest percentage of correctness out of anyone still tipping I think :D I need to stop picking ridiculous longshots.


Also, I bought a red vuvezela 3 years ago before they were popular, and now everyone makes fun of me for having one.

There's an award for picking ridiculous longshots, if it actually wins :D

And Bansh, you'll make a mistake eventually, then your percentage empire will come crumbling down! If you're next tip is wrong your score will plummet to 8.1, so you have less security than those with more games. And though jealous of the silver double-hat-trick, you still don't have enough games to be eligible for silver or gold tipster, for which I have the only golden trophy yet.

And damnit! Why'd Mexico loose? Now they have to face Messi, don't they? And they messed up my streak... There's three silver-double-hat-tricks floating about, and at this rate I won't be next!

I've got six of the last eight matches right, and the other two were draws. Woo! Hot streak! If only I'd been gambling instead of worthlessly tipping over the internet...

Yeah, I seriously consider betting with some real money on the matches... I'm doing pretty good in the other pools I'm playing in as well, so it's not like I don't have a chance winning some money on gambling :D
