How many games have you actually seen? :confused:
They routinely have over 30% of saves.

my question would be "what's the point of handball"?

A boring hybrid of football and basketball.Strangely it's quite popular in northern europe.

I thought the thread was retarded but when I saw the name of the threadstarter everything became clear.

You must have no idea about handball when you make comments like this one :weirdo:

I used to play handball in high school. I found it very entertaining to play, but not to watch.

but what's so awsome about it? players bumping into each other all of the time and if one manages to shoot, usually from a standardly boring situation, they score most of the time.

to be fair, there are more boring games than handball, but as it is, it's a really dull game to watch.

Whenever I watch they never catch the ball and when they do it usually the fault of the throwing person

I thought the point of a goal keeper is to make it difficult to score. if u r catching only 30% you might as well just have a smaller goalpost.

All they ever to is this :wavey: as the ball flies through their legs:confused:
