Same here. It looks like a heart.
It's all subjective though. For instance, this guy is of an entirely different opinion.

Holland gave him plenty of reasons to blow up, and im surprised that Holland made it to the end with over 9 Players left on the field.

Makes me sad the dutch lost. The dutch football experts improve football all over the world and the dutch saw only a title once for it. I think a dutch was involved in founding the Barca football school.

At least somebody won their first World cup title rather than Brazil getting the sixtht star.

Euro 2012 will be uber fail, nothing and no-one in Poland (and Ukraine) is ready for it. There are no highways, not enough hotels but more important-the stadiums won't be completed on time. At least not in Poland

something different: no one has proposes for an international dreamteam set up regarding efforts during the 2010championship?

Masterceo apparently your absence in Poland left you without proper perspective. While I agree on the highway and hotel issue - I'm more than sure that stadiums will be built on time.

Take a look for yourself. And sorry for the slight offtopic. :)

Oh wow, that's...surprising in a positive manner. Last time I was in Warsaw (about 9 months ago) not much has been done to be honest, but it looks like they did accelerate with the work, I'm very happy to see that...all tho you know Aquiller how things get done in Poland, everything seems fine now, but in the future some "problems" might occur. Hope not.

But about the highways I'm dead sure they won't reach the deadline, Poland will see the biggest traffic jams and accident rate in our history. That frightens me a bit.

BTW: just saw the Dutch team fly over my house in a Chinook and a Eurocopter, accompanied by what seemed to be a Alouette III and a Bell 412. Apparently they landed on a military airstrip to meet the queen.

What do you mean with the party is over? The Dutch team just (3 mins ago atm of writing) flew in a chinook over the 'museumplein' (museum square) in Amsterdam, over thousands of fans. They just landed at a Navy base, are having a boat trip through a part of Amsterdam with thousands of fans awaiting them. :grin:

Edit: Did you also saw the 'orange lion' they put on the side of that Cougar?

Re: 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa
 
Yeah, pretty neat.
I even have a vid but but it was made with my phone so you can't see anything.
My father actually told me he met the team, because they landed in the military base right next to the NATO facility where he works. I should of asked him for an autograph from Robben :(

Link (in Dutch) to photo's of today. Fighter escort, being flown with a Chinook and a Cougar, speech from the PM, visiting our queen, military band, music artists, boat trip, and many, many (~500.000) cheering fans. I am sure they won't forget this day. BBC link

Nothing 'over the top' about that. We honour our team for the performance they did, I am glad they got welcomed like this, rather than just landing at the airfield and then leave for home.

What wrong with landing and going home? At the end of the day they're just playing a game, and they didn't win it.
They're not heroes, this kind of attention would be undeserved, even for the winners.

Gast ik ben Nederlands, ik vind het ook wel tof enzo, maar een inhuldiging door de marine is er gewoon over. Het team van van Oranje wordt in een Chinook gestopt en er wordt een F16 oranje geschilderd om uiteindelijk weer grijs geschilderd te worden, wat denk je wel niet dat dat kost.

Man, I'm Dutch, I think it's cool and such to honor the national team, but this is just over the top. Elaborate and too expensive.

Wrong, The Dutch F16 that has the Orange lion on it is just like that, It's from the 1 man F16 Demo team.. It won't be painted back to Grey..

sorrie then, BTW I don't speak a word in Dutch.

I think the team got what they deserved. They got very far in the cup after all, they were very disappointed that they didn't win, but I'm 100% sure this kind of welcoming was the best gift they could receive from their fans. It showed them that even tho they didn't win, they did something extraordinary and many, many people appreciate their effort. This might even motivate them more for the next World Cup.

You don't get it, the 600.000 people in Amsterdam did. (and probably more in the rest of the nation) It's not about whether they won the cup or not, they won a lot of matches and entertained almost a whole nation by getting that far. But you don't get that. I find it rather unthankful if these people managed to entertain so much, yet you don't give them a warm welcome home? And for the people who watched it, you could see that in the beginning they didn't liked it, but in the end on the stage they were smiling and partying, it cheered them up and that is something they certainly could use.

There is your answer. What else would that Chinook crew be doing? Eating out of it's nose? And you are two years too late, when they painted a Leopard 2A6 orange (Geenstijl) for the Eurocup.

You could as well be an Englishman or a German who learned Dutch or used Google translator.


Saying you're Dutch is more than enough. ;)

You're right, I don't get it. The cast of Seinfeld entertained millions of people every episode they did and I didn't see them get a parade every time they drove home from the set at night.
Is the obscene amount of money they are being payed for playing games not enough of a thank you for them?

Comparing a TV-show with football... This team was representing our nation on the most important football competition in the world. If they would have won, the whole nation would have won (just as they say now Spain won the world cup), they are second in the world (vice-champions with a nice word) and they achieved a lot.

I am not sure what your definition of 'every time' is, but the last time the national team got a welcome like that was 22 years ago, in 1988.

They are also sportsmen, who want to win. They came really close to the world cup, and the sad mood ruled among the men. I don't see why they shouldn't get a party for getting that far and that close to the world cup.

But hey, whatever, if you don't like that, you just don't. I am just happy they did got fun out of it and appreciated it. With that I have said enough about it.

This is the part I'm having problems wrapping my head around. To me it just seems like living vicariously through others.
I don't recognize any representation for myself so I can't view it this way. My view is that if I'm not personally playing on the team that wins, then I have no claim to pride.
