Great post! Some people like watching football. It gives them the same thrill as going straight in the whitewash. Others like surfing the open face, getting air, performing hacks, cutbacks, floaters.

Then, go watch TMZ with all the other idol worshippers.
What the hell happened to this thread? I don't know what I missed, but where did this conflict begin? Does it really matter who watches the NFL and who doesn't? Does it make you any less of a person or a surfer if you choose to watch the NFL?
I'm extremely passionate about my team and I pretty much know exactly what I'll be doing every single Sunday. The last time I paddled out WHILE my Ravens were playing was on October 16th, 2011. I buckled one of my favorite boards...
Do I need to burn my jerseys, sell my PSLs and renounce my team to become a better surfer? Is that what Kelly Slater and Bodhi did? Will I be cool just like all you heady brahs and soul surfers out there?
Any moment now, chucka-boo-boo will hijack the bejesus out of this thread. He's just finishing up with the latex dummies in the barn.
Alright when I saw yankee as the last poster in this thread I knew the topic must've strayed from football. Never bothered with this thread before because football does absolutely nothing for, no offense to you football guys out there, I'm just indifferent to it. But carry on, great change of course in the discussion here.
Hey Charles Taylor, that was a sick video dude.
We just like it because its fun to watch and get involved. We can have more than one interest. Lets get back to football and you other guys can start another thread about not liking it. Sound like a compromise?
I'm honestly not even reading Doug E Fresh's lengthy response for the simple avoidance of having to decipher real code which is his broken English. He and Liam can play surfer's D&D together and make-believe about a hipster world with no sports or ESPN and only surfing. The two of them would be so pitted there!!!
Yes, let's get back to talking about liking football, but this thread's been dead for weeks if not months. I've tried on a regular basis during this great NFL season to spur up some chatter on this here thread, even going so far as to mention the interesting ups and downs of several teams outside of my two favorites. Yet, just about no one here picked up the topic most of those times.
So if you do, in fact, want to keep an unreal thread going (that took a lot of GOOD on-topic posts to get to 43 pages) then please do so as there's so much NFL to discuss. Otherwise, we will have to hand this over to RoyCharles as condemned property and let the vining begin.
Will Matt Shaub be coming back? Did I even spell his name right? Is Houston better off? Are the Eagles for real? Will Denver Broncs beat the Colts next week? Will Romo continue to get better or choke? Will Tebow go to Europe? Just a few topics we could discuss. Who is better, Brady or Manning?
The Brady/Manning debate has been fully attended to earlier in this thread and at fair length. If you want an addendum to that discourse to include the six games of this season, we could do so, as both have had great and different achievements thus far. Otherwise, that stone's already been turned.

Schaub has brought that young franchise some excitement in past years they've never had and no matter how rough things get you don't ever applaud a player's injury let alone your own. That was despicable, and even their opponents said so. Yes, the Texans are nearly in ashes but that's not by the hand of one player. They don't deserve the resurrection of the Oilers if they're booing their fallen leader.
The Eagles are always for real. Real disappointing.
Peyton vs. Luck will be a great game with lots of overtones and meaning to both teams and players. Broncos offense is en fuego while their D looks like Swiss queso at times. Time will tell.
Tebow will have his day. Flutie did.
Great post brah. Way to get this thread back on track and out of the hands of hipsters.
Yeah, Houston fans are the worst. Dont give up on Romo yet. Cant wait for next week. Cowboys at Philly for the lead will be s good one too.
Raider nation never dies.
Just win baby.
