Spot on. Football is just a game. A wonderful game that interests me a great deal, but just a game, nevertheless. A win is nice, a defeat is not so nice, but there are so many things in life that deserve and require more attention that I can't care about results and other events and situations in football for too much for too long.a defeat or a relegation in football is just a bad result but nothing more. It is a game. In the end the real issues in life are your job, guaranteeing an income, support your family (if you have one), ... Football is a pleasant hobby but I have difficulties in taking it too serious. I wouldn't want to anyway, not even the worst defeat comes anywhere near the seriousness of real problems: finances, health, unemployment, you get what I mean.
