First topic message reminder :

Ok folks, here we are with round 3 of the Culture Cup and the poll for Best film released since the turn of the century

Round 2 is now complete and what a turn around.  Numbers 1 and 2 from round one are the only posters not to score a single point in round two. Yes, michaels and Galted, that means you pair of miscreants.  compelling and rich and The Womble spent most of the round battling each other for first place but it eventually went to c&r who goes flying up the leaderboard.  Same as the last round for me, the best nomination ended up in second place but such is life.  Adam was his usual consistent self with another third place, reinforcing the image we have of him as a desperately middle of the road sort of chap.  Union got some points again which was nice to see.  Poor old ChequeredJersey is in last place with a solitary point, bringing up the rear which is something he will have to get used to studying medicine.

Here are the runners and riders;

compelling & rich (Teenage Kicks): (12) 16
Adam (Who wants to live forever): (8) 16
Hero (Everybody Hurts): (7) 14
The Womble (Heroes): (10) 13
seanmichaels (History): (0) 12
Azzy (Should I stay or should I go): (6) 11
Galted (This is England): (0) 10
jbeadlesbigrighthand (Born to Run): (4) 8
Dolphin Ziggler (You Know You're Right): (1) 7
onlytreblewinners (Photograph): (2) 7
TopHat (Ain't no mountain high enough): (5) 7
superflyweight (Your love keeps lifting me higher): (3) 6
Union (Wonderland): (3) 5
The Boss (Tequila Sunrise): (1) 5
bhb001 (Stairway to Heaven): (5) 5
Julius (Little Red Corvette): (2) 4
Rowley(Days): (2) 4
ChequeredJersey (Changes): (1) 1

Round 4 moves on to TV and the question is Who is the greatest comedy character on TV since the turn of the century?.  Limiting it to choices since the 1st January 2000 produced some really good shouts for round 3 so we will give it another go.  It can be someone from a US series, UK series, a one off show, whatever you want.  So long as the programme they appeared in didn't start to be aired before 1.1.2000.  

For example: Del Boy is not allowed as Only Fools and Horses was aired before the turn of the century (and the show isn't funny either but that's another story).  Hopefully it will get quite a broad spectrum of choices.

Please PM me a couple of choices and can you please let me know the date the programme was aired so I don't have to spend time looking it up.

Here is the poll for round 3 and it is a good'un.  Remember that it is open for the whole forum to vote!

Thanks.

Was that mine?

The problem is the date restriction you put on.

Admittedly my answer(s) went out in a hurry but for some reason I genuinely struggled to think of a really good recent comic sitcom character.

Alf Garnett was definitely pre 2000

You got your first choice which wasn't Brent. Yours didn't start till the mid-2000's.

Oh yeh, just checked. Brent was my second for some reason.

Still struggling for other post-2000s, be interesting to see who others come up with.

Good weekend? I accidently clipped my right testicle whilst bowling last night and think I have caused some damage. It has taken the shine off what was a pretty decent sport packed weekend.

Sort of. I was sick yesterday morning as I drank too much watching the fight in a pub on Saturday night.

How an earth do you clip your right testicle whilst bowling? I'm intrigued. Do you have enormous testicles or a strange bowling action?

I guess your release arm should really follow through quite close. I was however messing about a bit whilst 'warming up' and not too sure exactly what collided with what. It was a glancing blow but they are the worst.

Textbook saturday for me. Missus out shopping, crate of lager, slow cooked spag bol, Rugby League, Return of the Jedi then the boxing

Ah, ok, I thought you meant 10 pin bowling. Now you can see why I was intrigued.

I watched the pulsating Ireland v New Zealand game on Sky plus till one o'clock this morning. I'm very tired now.

Also watched Solaris on TCM. It was sh*t.

Very similar result to the Eng v NZ rugby league game. Convertion to win the last kick of the game.

Eng-NZL was probably the most fantastic and entertaining game of rugby I've seen in years. Never liked League before but that game was probably the pinnacle of the sport as a spectacle.

Been saying it for a while. In terms of entertainment and skill league is a long way ahead of union.

League is fantastic. You rarely get a truly bad game.

I know one or two professional players relatively well from school days. I don't keep in touch with them as such but would nod and say hello if I bumped into them.

League is fantastic.  You rarely get a truly bad game.

I know one or two professional players relatively well from school days.  I don't keep in touch with them as such but would nod and say hello if I bumped into them.

My abiding memory of league is Andy Farrell breaking his nose, cheekbones etc then coming out for the second half with tape around his face to hold everything in place.

Yeah they are tough guys, all of them. Although union guys are pretty much all hard as nails. Professional rugby is brutal, either code.

Yeh, I've watched a bit of club level League in the past and never been that excited about it though. All a bit 'samey' with little variety in play.

Plus, I played Union for school so always had more of an affinity for that code. I find set piece play really interesting, which also favours Union.

Most frustrating thing about Saturday was watching a team full of League players all with great hands, almost perfect catching, never spilling it and even off-loading perfectly into some very meaty challenges – and yet out Union backs cannot pass or catch a jot!!

I was unusual growing up in the North West, where league is king, in that I played union. My old man is Scottish and loves union and he took to me a union club and I stayed with it. I love them both equally though.

The basic skills in league are crazily good.

I'm surprised to find agreement here. On the rugby union boards last week they were saying the skill levels in the backs are bad because of the league coaches....

One of my favourite sports stats is that Andy Farrell made his England debut AGED SIXTEEN. Chuck in Challenge Cup winner aged SEVENTEEN and England international aged EIGHTEEN, captaining aged 21.

And this isn't namby pamby football where you can debut at 16/17 just by being a bit nippy and physicality not being an issue. This was in a sport where fully grown 16st men would be smashing into you on a regular basis!!

I don't really understand that. They have brought better defensive structures to union which makes it harder to break teams down, but surely there are only so many ways you can be taught to pass a ball.

Loved it when they kept talking about the 'White Wall' on Saturday. Was immense. Reminded me of the RWC in 2003 when our defence was sensational also.

The passing in Union is poor. The Lions scrumhalves (Youngs, Phillips) both take a step to get rid of the ball. Like you I don't understand how the basics appear so difficult to master in Union.

And one would assume they learned the basics with union coaches. Edwards obviously has a huge impact for the Wales international team but I don't think he can be blamed for Phillips slow pass.

@ michaels

Tried the jacket potato with some Danish Blue as you suggested, was quite impressed. Slightly prefer the taste of Camembert but the Danish Blue doesn't stick to everything like the proverbial sh1t to a blanket.
