    I’m gonna need some pics of hot footballers hugging all over each other on the pitch. Also that story about raping the lesbian African player is sickening.

    For those who read German, scans of Lahm’s Jan/Feb ’08 interview in FRONT magazine discussing Lahm’s acceptance of all sorts of footballers:

    If we find a German-speaking writer on this blog, maybe we can do a feature where we translate it?

      I haven’t spoken German all summer so I’m a bit rusty, but I’ll have a go at translating it 🙂

    hey everyone,

    im trying to figure out a way to get everyone who wants to help with the blog together to chat, so we can figure out how to organize everything about posting and such…any ideas either leave a comment or email me. So far I was thinking tinychat or something like it but then we would need to figure out a time when the most people would be online.

    any ideas about anything PLEASE COMMENT 🙂

      count me in for the chat 😀

      Another idea is waiting for scruby to make a lj comm for the whole campaign and then making a topic on there…that might be easier on time zones?

    That’s a great idea, an LJ community would be easiest on time zones 🙂

    we need to get the admins organized LOL i have 2 more people with me on tumblr, im also on the FB community, would be nice to know who is admin’ing where so we can synchronize when something new is up! 🙂

      i agree, i think that once scruby makes the lj comm it will get a lot easier because then we can have topics for each thing (ie blog, twitter, tumblr, facebook, etc) and people can decide what fits them best, and that they want to help with, etc.

      As for chat i think tinychat might be too hard with timezones, and waiting for this lj comm will be the best way to do things..

    The LJ community is a great idea. If you need any more help with the blog I’m willing to help. I’ve never used tinychat, I stick to AIM (old school like that.)
    I speak spanish so I can always help translate when needed 🙂

    i really like the idea of an lj comm, and it would be easy to set up tinychats through that.

    also, thanks for those scans. i can speak german so may be able to translate, although i’m not a native speaker so if someone else wants to try then feel free!

    The idea is wonderful, and I think it would be amazing to make this blog a well-organized site full of good quality articles and pictures, so we can recommend this address to some “big & serious” websites and newspapers 🙂

    I write pretty well in Polish, you can e-mail me of course if you think it could be helpful
