I honestly don't know a thing about football... But I learned the word bovver.... So... uhm... 5's for that I guess...

(ABC3-B) And I'm assuming you mean 'football' as in what we Aussies call 'soccer'? Still, gotta love a them about people bashing each other over sport.

(ABC3) So many different terms for "aggressive football/soccer fan" I'm learning thanks to this Web site!

(ABC3B) "maybe i will change your gender" was a great line. And congratulations for using a word that doesn't even have an entry!

My, what a violent playground you hang out in. You've captured the emotion of the game with this one.

(ABC3-B) for real bovver-boy style footy violence, try an Aussie Rugby League game, and that's just on the field (or the annual Aussie Rules / Irish Gaelic Football hybrid games where the Aussies are coached by Kevin Sheedy) - nice work tomario - I could hear Billy singing this - 555

(ABC) Good freewheeling word formation for pacing & lyrical effect.

Well done, whether it's for american football, or something more violent, it's got me ready for the upcoming season!

"Bovver" suggests to me that you're British, Tomario...and the imagery fits perfectly with the inter-crew battles that blight english football. well done. 555
