Easy tiger, just telling you as it is. Until I see 80'000+ people watch handball or volleyball I will take it that the British sport of rugby is MUCH more popular across Europe, especially France or Italy. I am not sure what you mean about 'independent' country, we have had the sense to get out of the EU dictatorship. Now if you really do have a problem with the British I suggest you stop playing British football, stop listening to British music and watching British films oh and perhaps you should stop using the British language too? Go and get some culture of your own instead of just copying ours!

FOR THE LAST TIME I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH NORMAL BRITISH OR ENGLISH PEOPLE . I ONLY HAVE PROBLEM WITH ENGLISH FANS WHO BOO ANTHEMS AND STOMP ON OTHER NATIONS FLAGS . I RESPECT BRITISH , ENGLISH FANS THAT BEHAVE NORMALLY ! I RESPECT WHAT BRITIAN BROUGHT TO THE WORLD AND I RESPECT NORMAL BRITISH
PEOPLE .

https://sporteology.com/top-10-popular-sports-world/ Volleyball has much more fans than rugby . And so does basketball . Both basketball and volleyball are sports that are played in sports halls not on stadiums . Rugby is quite popular in south France and northern Italy unlike volleyball which is popular throughout whole of these countries .

GO AND GET SOME CULTURE ? WHO ARE YOU TO TALK LIKE THAT ? HOW MANY EXAMPLES OF GERMAN COMPOSERS , INVENTIONS AND INVENTORS , WRITERS , PHILOSOPHERS DO I HAVE TO GIVE TO YOU , SO THAT YOU COULD STOP SAYING THIS RUBBISH ? KANT , NIETZSCHE , BEETHOVEN , GOETHE , VON BRAUN , LUTHER , KEPLER , EINSTEIN , BENZ , GUTTENBERG AND MANY OTHERS .
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...nd_discoverers Here you have whole list of german inventors and discoverers .

Here you have list of german composers . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_German_composers

And list of german philosophers . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego...n_philosophers

Now if you have problem with germans , maybe you should stop using cars , plains , ships (petrol engines ) . Maybe you should never read any books or newspapers (printing) , maybe you should go back to catholicism , maybe you should never ride on a bike . Maybe you should never take an aspirine . Maybe you should never use motorways . See how twisted your theories sound ? Everyone should appreciate everything that all countries brought to this world and use it . I UNLIKE YOU APPRECIATE EVERYTHING THAT EVERY NATION INCLUDING BRITIAN BROUGHT TO THIS WORLD AND I AM GRATEFUL FOR IT ! Talking to you is pointless . I give you arguments and you ignore them and just countinue with your ignorance and changing subjects .

I WISH YOU COULD JUST STICK TO FOOTBALL TOPIC AND STOP PROVOKING AND CHANGING SUBJECTS .

I did a little research and these are the numbers .

Estimated fans : Volleyball - 900 million fans .
Rugby - 410 milion fans . https://sporteology.com/top-10-popular-sports-world/


Most widely played sports : First place Volleyball - 218 national federations , even more than in soccer !
29th place Rugby - 110 national federations , even less than in baseball ! lol Most Widely Played Sports

In Rugby world cup , there were qualified teams like Fiji , Samoa , Tonga . These are tiny and very poor countries , and they were in rugby world cup ! This speaks for itself how little of competition there is in rugby that such countries can make it to rugby world cup . You won't find such countries in Volleyball world championships .

I knew from the start that volleyball is way more popular than rugby , but even I did not expect such a huge gap in popularity between these two sports .

You say you don't like English fans that 'boo' anthems and yet you don't mind if Italian, Spanish, Turkish, French or German fans do it? Like I said, I think you have a 'chip' on your shoulder when it comes to the British. If that has nothing to do with the wars then I can only guess its because of the dominant popular culture or perhaps the popularity of the Premier League that makes you feel this way?

Doesn't change the fact that rugby blows handball out of the water when it comes to matchday attendance and world cup TV viewership, what size crowds does a volleyball game get exactly? The fact that Fiji, Samoa or Tonga are better at rugby than the Germans says a lot about the Germans, why did you only decide to choose football, golf or tennis when you wanted to try playing British sports? You need to start playing something a bit more 'manly'

NO , YOU ARE LYING . I DON'T LIKE ITALIAN AND TURKISH FANS THAT BOO ANTHEMS EITHER AND I NEVER ROOT FOR ITALY OR TURKEY . AND I HAVE SAID IT BEFORE . YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT . ITS THERE , ITS WRITTEN . I CAN'T RECALL FRENCH OR GERMAN FANS BOOING ANTHEMS AND STOMPING ON FLAGS , THOUGH .

I do not have any chip on my shoulders when it comes to british . I respect what british brought to this world . Premier league is very competitive league and I like it , and it is good that its teams start to be once again succesful . I like liverpool fc . That is one of my most favourite clubs . I hope that they can win something this year .

NOW ON THE OTHER HAND YOU SEEM TO HATE ON GERMANS . YOU SAID THAT THEY HAD BROUGHT NOTHING TO THIS WORLD AND THAT APART FROM FOOTBALL THEY DID NOT DO ANYTHING VERY WELL , EVEN THOUGH YOU USE THINGS THAT THEY INVENTED ON DAILY BASIS AND I SAID THAT I RESPECT WHAT BRITTISH BROUGHT TO THIS WORLD AND I AM GRATEFUL FOR IT . YOU CAN EASILY SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOMEONE WITH A CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER (YOU) AND SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT LIKE JUST ONE ASPECT ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY BUT RESPECTS AND APRECIATES EVERYTHING ELSE THAT IS GOOD ABOUT IT (ME) . WHAT CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND ?

How can you compare sports hall attendance with stadium attendance ? Lol . BUT IT DOES NOT MATTER ANYWAY BECAUSE YOU SAID THAT YOU PLAY EVERY SPORT ON A COMPETITIVE LEVEL AND I PROVED YOU WRONG . YOU DON'T PLAY BASKETBALL , HANDBALL , VOLLEYBALL , ICE HOCKEY ETC ON A COMPETITIVE LEVEL , SO YOU CHANGED A SUBJECT .

Volleyball is played in sports hall as is basketball and handball . You cant put as many people in sports hall as in stadium . So it does not mean anything . What don't you understand ? Basketball also can't get a big crowd like american football or baseball but is either number 2 or 3 sport in the world , and is way more popular than american football or baseball or rugby worldwide . The fact that volleyball has over twice as many fans as rugby worldwide , and that there are twice as many countries in the world playing it as there are countries playing rugby says everything that has to be said on that subject .

The fact that such countries like fiji , samoa or tonga play in a world cup of whatever sport and little country like new zealand dominates it, says a lot about how minor of a sport it is (in that case rugby ) and only about that . Nothing against rugby just stating the facts .

Neither football , tennis nor golf are brittish sports anymore . They belong to the whole world now . Just like not all cars are german anymore , and not all books (printing) are german anymore , and not all bikes are german anymore just because they invented it . Stop living in a past .

As for rugby being manly ? Let's just say that bunch of grown men jumping on the one with the ball like he is some kind of hottest chick on the earth is not something that I would call manly .

Football is THE manly sport . It is THE sport . All the best athletes , all the best men around the world go to play football . And Germany is THE man . Nothing against England , if england won then I would congratulate englishmen . No excuses . But if germany won and england lost would you do the same ? I don't think so .

If someone is trying to make me look like I have something against british nation just because I don't like their fan's behaviour (booing anthems , stomping on flags) then I am going to respond and make it clear that it is not a case and that I respect british nation and british normal fans and british normal people . I told him many times to get back to football topic and stop provoking . All of these other sports , history stuff is irrelevant in this topic , but he just keeps going .
