  • tanthony2012

    He's too busy being a badass to watch football.

  • callmemaybe

    He's an actor. Why does everyone think he's a tough guy?

    • Darkman

      Thank you for your bravery.

    • TheBoringAddress

      He was a boxer… an Irish boxer.

      • FSU_Chivet

        Not only that he was a junior title holder. In Northern Ireland. So yea, he'd jab the shit outta your face. Repeatedly.

    • @Paul_Hizzle

      he also worked for Guinness!

  • jadedhero1331

    I can't say I blame him. I've been living in the US my whole life, and I still don't understand the rules of American football.

    • Livin' Legend

      Neither do many referees.

    • Nicnac

      What I DO know however is there is about 20 minutes of actual football in every hour of real time.

  • morebeer

    Perhaps a little prep work before they went live might have been advisable?

    "Hey Liam, you know anything about american football?"
    "ok, next topic"

  • @Onoku

    Kudos to him for being honest about it though rather than just trying to wing it and sounding like an idiot.

  • mikeyy

    He was clearly just caught off guard and distracted by all these annoying adds.

  • Heisanidiot

    He's like…don't ask me that!

    • Thanksmoron

      You're like… Pointing out the obvious.

  • tv_paul

    I think he was being honest & polite.

  • DickFister

    Neeson to the show's producers: I will find you. And I will kill you.

  • Holmespump

    Was he a replacement ref?

  • About50Mexicans

    The force is strong with this one.

  • Etown

    You've insulted me, and for that, my price just went up

  • Sportacus

    He got away with cursing on live TV

  • InSane We Trust

    He handled that like a boss. He admitted not knowing rather than just answering yes or no.

  • Abides

    Such a fucking bad ass.

  • Pedro

    I would say that didn't go as planned…only I don't think there was any planning involved. None.

  • @NorCalChiver

    i don't wanna watch this and ruin the awesome view of liam neeson i have

    • Nicnac

      Watch it. He is still awesome. ;)

  • pete

    Good save!

  • Poople Dinosawr

    Oh no, a European doesn't understand your national game. Declare war! We don't even have American football broadcast over here

    • Lunch_Box

      Who said anything about war and what the fuck brought on that response, c'mon really, WTF!

    • Jonathan

      There is a great book written recently that explains why football is uniquely American and why it took hold and grew here whereas it was less likely too anywhere else. It had a lot to do with our pioneering spirit, which was still very vibrant when football was introduced in the late 19th century.

      • ...

        Are you suggesting he read a book about a sport which he doesn't even care about? It's also a bit pompous to tout your 'pioneering spirit' as though no other nation has this.

        • Lunch_Box

          Wow, really, your offended by his comment on pioneering spirit, he's just trying to describe a book, get over yourself and your PC bullshit way of life.

    • jay

      Where are you living?

      In the UK

      NFL broadcast on sky every Sunday?

      Channel 4 on a Monday?

    • Nicnac

      someone didn't watch the video and jumped to conclusions. Sounds very rash.

  • The Emperor

    How and why would Neeson know anything about American Football? Globally it a very minor sport and Neeson was raised on real sports like rugby and boxing.

    • Ricardo G Phœnix

      Because he lives in New York?

    • Lunch_Box

      Maybe because he attended an American Football game and they thought he might know something about it. The spot was obviously to promote his new movie and they should have prepared him for an interview on a sports show. They being his agent and the studio that set him up with an interview on a sports show (an American sports show no less). C'mon fuckers, it's called common sense, try to use some.

    • dirtysteve

      He had a trial for a football(soccer) team, but never got a contract. That seems to be his sport of choice.

  • sarah

    He spoke to me once and I nearly pissed myself. It was still pretty awesome

  • norn iron

    people of 'merica fuxk yeah, Liam Neeson is from Northern Ireland, known to locals as norn iron, why the fuck would he care about 'merican football? ps hes one hard mutha fucka!

  • Carter2

    I like that unlike a politician would have done, he was honest.
