Last year there was a soccer package for $300 to $350 smackers on the dish network through a deal with KBS as well as one game a week on RTPi (also available through the dish network) for us Yanks. However, whether this will be available again this coming season is in doubt at the moment.

Hold on I thought the dudes in Canada could get access to the networks for free (once theyve got a dish) cause theres no law for pickin up frequencies or somethin like dat over there. I remember dudes talkin bout this last year.

Weres the rest of u crazy Kanucks - help the dude out!

Yeah. I do remember someone stating that. I guess if you live in the great white nothing, it pay to get the dish if the butter comes free. If for nothing else, the free porn.

Yo ho ho.

That law that stipulated that any foreign signal over Canada is considered "public" domain is no more. Bell ExpreesVU, Canada's largest (and crappiest) Satellite provider, recently won their case with the Surpreme court of Canada. Bell claimed that those "grey marker" dishes were making them lose money (ooo...instead of making 2.9 billion they make 2 899 999 999.99).

Right now the verdict is under appeal so it is still "grey market".

Bgomes, I highly suggest you do one of two things;

1. Go to Champs. Live there. The owners are Portuguese and will offer no resistance whatsoever if you ask them to watch Portuguese soccer. Though, it is a lot tougher come NFL season.

2. Go to the NATIONAL BANK on St.Laurent and pick up the following Newspapers:

VOZ DO PORTUGAL
JORNAL DO EMIGRANTE
LUSOPRESSE

the backpages are filled with grey market Satellite providers. You'd have to contact one of them. I think you'll have to plunk down 400-600 smackers (about 6$ US) for the dish(es)

Bwahahahaha:D

In time of misery, we have nothing but our sense of humor to rescue us. That one cost me a two squirts of windex to clean the mess I made on the screen.

hey guys...

as many of you know I am married to a beautiful italian woman....living in Maple (previously lived in T.O) i have been watching Seria A for last number of years...i'm now waiting for my second home to be built and have decided to finally support my culture's league the Primeira....so my question....

I'm from Sao Miguel...my father used to support Benfica first when Santa Clara wasn't in there...
my buddies are from the Peniche area but they all support different teams...George loves Sporting, Mike loves Porto and Paul loves Benfica....i guess my question is who should I support??? and why??? i guess i'm just looking for some interesting answers....i want to know why you guys support who you support....

I've always been an AC Milan fan...it started years ago because I played in the same uniform when i was in my teens...it just stuck with me and have enjoyed...now it's time to support my Portuguese clubs....

humour me....

You came to the right place for advice. I have two short answers for you:

1 - Fathers know best.

2 - Being a Benfica fan will get you laid an enorment amount of times.

2a - Makes ye smarter (I mean, jest looky how ye get to make up vocabulary that don't exist in the above item!).

2b - It'll make yer **** bigger (though ye probably don't need the extra length. Hey, I'm jest guessing. Damn! I just weirded myself out. Note to self: Wash brain with acid when ye get home).

2c - Red is cooler than blue (There's no one cooler than the Devil, and he prefers red, which is why Santa Clara also wears red), that's why Ferraris all come in red.

2d - It'll automatically make ye rich ( just note how some ex-presidents of the club retired on Yachts).

2e - It'll get ye a smokin Italian wife with a finer sister.

The fact that you got this last one covered proves yer already a Benfiquista.

Welcome aboard. Now kindly introduce me to yer wife's sister, I think it's about time item number two comes true fer me.

That is all.

Icarus,

Lomes is typical Porto Fan always needs to recruit to try and strengthen fan base like that of Benfica but it will never happen.

If I were you though, I would agree with Lomes and support Santa Clara. Besides, they're affiliated with Benfica so you can pull for both teams. I support Benfica because when I was born the first thing my father did was put a Benfica hat on me in the maternity ward. As such, my father then began educating me on why he supports Benfica. The rest of his (our) family is Sporting which makes for a great war when we all get together in the motherland.

Benfica has more hardware, fan base, and popularity than that of the other two combined! Again, don't pick them becuase of that pick them becuase of their culture, history, and what the club stands for.

Pila, did I miss anything here?

Acoreano women are great as well Lomes!

ooohhh... that. No, I think you covered it pretty well - though you forgot to mention the x-ray vision that comes with being a Benfiquista. Other than that, you got it covered.

Pila....you are f'n funny man...:D :D :D I should support the red just for your sense of humour....: which of my wife's sisters would you care to meet???? if anything my wife's entire family (cousins) are hot....i love those italian weddings....it's funny you should mention my wife's sisters....me and my italian brother in law would love to do that Tabboo thing with the sis in law....

Lomes, you are right, Acorianas are hot as well....especially when they grow up in T.O...they tend to enjoy wearing those nice tight hip hugger pants with tight bellie shirts with those beautiful large......knooooooostrils.....
:D

i guess what I need is some visual encouragement.....kind of like the babe picture they show the "stadium" newspaper...

any of you guys have the lovelies wearing the club gear??? preferably just a hot and shoes....;) ;) i'd certainly support the club with the hotties........but if not i guess i'll ask you guys for some info on how these teams currently play????

who plays the nicest game...none of this defensive crap as I already see enough of this supporting a Serie A team....

Yep. They always show the hotties before the games start. Perhaps you should just (Benfica) reserve judgement and see them play (Benfica). Then simply choose the one (Benfica) that plays to your suitability (Benfica).

Note how (Benfica) I'm not trying to persuade (Benfica) you in any way (Benfica). You gotta (Benfica) respect that (Benfica) in a man.

PS (Benfica) Cousins will do (Benfica) just fine.
