A sport existing only in the mind of one Scott Gall (see his entry above). Delete as unverifiable vanity. —No-One Jones (m) 04:42, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Note: Rugbicket and Rugbennis are other new imaginary sports by Scott Gall, can we please just apply this vote to those as well? Wolfman 18:54, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete, original research. IMHO it was not intended as a prank. See Scott Gall. Apparently Scott Gall is fascinated by word combinations and neologisms which come into his mind, which he calls "codes," . In the other article he characterizes soccer bowling as "a strange form of bowling on a soccer pitch." I think this an attempt to decode one of these terms. That is, it is intended to be an extended development of the hypothetical concept of "soccer bowling," not an assertion that the game actually exists. But Wikipedia is not a vehicle for hypothetical discussions of concepts. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 14:58, 7 Nov 2004 (UTC)
