Um…The New Zealand All Blacks Rugby Team?
Even if i’d never heard of the all blacks i still wouldn’t see anything racist. Over sensitive much?
Seriously, you’d think even if the OP wasn’t a rugby fan, they’d have at least seen the movie Invictus, which featured a match between the All Blacks and the Springboks.
Pffft, no. Nobody saw Invictus.
I did. 😀 Liked it, too. 😛
am I missing something?
He is refering to the New Zealand All Blacks Rugby team…duh.
Stupid. They don’t rock. They suck ass now.
Yeah, they suck so much that they’re on the top of the world ranking:
Best team in the world….This coming from an Irishman
Bullshit – it’s kiwi team pride!
Another case of America assuming that the rest of the world must confirm to it’s version of what is offensive.
Umm no it’s. Possessive apostrophe. Time to learn you some grammar.
Umm no. The possessive form of “it” is “its” without an apostrophe. (It’s like “his” — no apostrophe needed.)
This amuses me (:
This exchange is about a billion times more amusing than the plate!
Haha, Johnno you retard, YOU learn some grammar! Lol, it’s = it is. Man I love it when idiots speak before thinking.
Oh the beautiful demonstration of my fellow American’s ignorance and egocentrism.
hahhahahaha all blacks rock
true that, the the all blacks do rock!!!
Ignorant American here. Not a sports fan and don’t know the fist thing about rugby. But even I have heard of the All Blacks, and the haka. There are about 100 videos of them doing their haka on youtube. Check it out.
… I fail to see how he was ignorant. Spartacus was merely stating that the All Blacks rock… I think he realises it’s a rugby team silly 🙂
What’s the issue? It’s the New Zealand rugby team, the All Blacks. Granted, I don’t think they rock,but everyone is entitled to their own sporting opinions.
Am I missing something? Cos I don’t get it.
Double meaning. All Blacks the team, but it could also be read (especially missing a “the” to clarify) as “all blacks,” as in “all black people.”
yeah but thats still not funny
Am I the only one that noticed that’s a football, not a rugby ball?
If that’s not the point, then the OP sucks for not knowing the All Blacks.
I don’t think that’s the point. By the way, the image is tagged as “football”, while it’s clearly rugby.
Hehe, it’s a picture about the New Zealand Rugby Team, known as the ‘All Blacks’ because of the colour of the jersey they wear, not thier skin colour, just to clear that up. But it’s still funny if you look at it from the perspective of someone who didn’t know that. 🙂
Actually, the genesis of the name comes from the newspaper write-up on their first match, where a typo slipped-in, saying the team was “all blacks”, as opposed to “all backs” meaning they had a weak pack and was getting owned in scrums.
Eeeeeeyeah, that’s the NZ rugby team, lol.
ok that makes no sense at all … he has drawn a rugby ball, and rugby goal posts and he has got the NZ team name right as far as I can see. So what’s the DOH about?
he obviously THINKS it’s racist cuz the stupid american doesn’t know who the all blacks are
OH FINE…the admins KILLED my link to the All Blacks website and deleted my comment (which WAS second) stating that this kid was obviously a Kiwi (aka New Zealander) who was into the rugby team.
And yes, Jen, the do suck now…but they USED to be the best team out there.
SPRING BOKS RULEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
The All Blacks used to be good, at least they got the hakka.
GO BOKKE!!! well they do suck but this a case of americanaignoranus
Lol, can I steal that word?
sure be my guest
I know this has now been said many, many times but this is clearly refering to the All Blacks rugby team from New Zealand.
Americans, are you even aware that there are other countries in the world besides your own?
Ugh, yes, we are aware. This is just an embarrassing example of someone refusing to do their research.
I’ve known about the All Blacks for a while, now.
By the way, my namesake, Lexi, is a New Zealander who was a foreign exchange student. She went to high school with my mother.
Wow, your mom knew a foreigner… Stupid American.
Wow flip: sparkling example of rapier wit = you win.
That doesn’t mean it’s not funny anyway. In fact, the only unfunny thing here is how offended others are getting about it. It can still have a double meaning, just like any similarly-named American team might. I am not a big sports fan, so I can’t give an example, and perhaps there’s nothing quite as good, but if there was that wouldn’t change how funny it is. I didn’t know the All Blacks myself, but I could tell it was a sports team from the image. We’re not stupid, we’re just more open to finding things funny, I suppose.
Maybe if a kid from Dallas did “I HATE REDSKINS,” or a kid from Pittsburgh did “I LOVE PIRATES,” or maybe a Cards fan writes “I HATE THE ROYALS” and it shows in the UK?
You actually mean that there are other countries out there and they have sports? I was not aware of this. I bet that we have a few sports teams here that you do not know of and would get a kick out of some of the names…All Americans aren’t ignorant. We just don’t watch rugby.
Alert the press! A person in one country didn’t know a fact about something in another country!
Who says he didn’t? It can still be funny even if you know the team.
See, this is funny in America because we’d think it was about African-Americans (even if they’re not really from Africa). How racist is this child and his parents????? The shock! The horror! The…..who gives a rats a$$!!!
And further, I don’t care for rugby, so why should I care if that’s what they were referring to? I wouldn’t know what that team’s name is, and amazingly, I’ll still be able to get on with my life. Calm down “know-it-all-interwebs-snobs”. Not EVERYONE is going to go Google “All Blacks” to see if this was innocent or not. Christ, check your self-serving egos at the door wouldja?
No… U can Sucka my dicka
the reason that they are called the All Blacks is awesome. A news paper was trying to state that they played like ‘all backs’ (as in, all back line players) and the paper miss typed it as ‘all blacks’ and they changed the name to it cause their uniforms were black anyway. lols news paper fail
some would argue that the name of the NZ soccer team is worse – the all whites – especially seeing as theyre competing at the world cup this year in south africa…
Thats true it does sound bad when you think about it that way but everyone links everything to racism these days. Black and white are our colours (maybe to symbolize Maori and Pakeha but idk and idc) They are called all whites because of their uniform. Just like the cricket team is black caps, we just want to have all the sport names linked in a way. So get over it.
and our badminton team is called the blackcocks. :]
New Zealand National Rugby side= All Blacks.
Soccer= All Whites.
Women’s Netball= Silver Ferns.
Wheelchair Rugby= Wheel Blacks.
Women’s Rugby= Black Ferns.
Hockey= Black Sticks.
Softball= Black Socks.
Mens basketball= Tall Blacks.
Women’s basketball= Tall Ferns.
Creative bunch, us Kiwis.
Can you imagine trying to play rugby if the ball was actually that shape? ‘Here comes the pass, oh no, the ball has stabbed the player in the chest!’
Go the All Blacks!
They f*cking rock!
I heard this somewhere, but i’m not 100% sure…
NZ Badminton Team = Black Cocks
Try socks mate.
i love that america can get away with having a baseball team called the ‘indians’ and yet assume that the nz ‘all blacks’ is racist.
I guess that the D’oh is for the fact that its a football, not a rugby ball. Though I must admit, I always drew a football for a rugby ball in school.. don’t know why though.
Ohhhhh, rugby. How you never cease to amaze me amazes me EVEN more.
Who DOESN’T know who the All Blacks are FFS!!! STUPID PEOPLE!
i fail to see the hilarity in this. Could someone help me? I mean how is a plate showing the All Blacks Rugby Team (awesome team) funny? If you thought it was racist then the only racist one here is you.
That’s not funny, it’s just the All Blacks rugby team… They’re legends. 😀
Americans should learn to check their facts before going “PC Nazi” or “Corporate Nazi” on the rest of the world. New Zealand’s national rugby team has been known as the All Blacks for as far back as anyone can remember, and I’m Australian. Last time I saw American pick on New Zealand, it was over Ugg boots. When they suddenly became fashionable, Deckers Corp thought they could trademark the name, and started sending nasty emails to everyone who makes ugg boots and calls them that. It’s been a generic name for close to a century, and Deckers lost in court because of a class action of thousands of individual “Mum and Dad” companies
I guess the OP thought the kid that made this was saying that all black people who play American football rock? *shakes head* Would this qualify as a third-party fail?
i want to do a haka now
