i was just wondering if anyone is a jock. i am a jock who loves warhammer,although i dont want to come out about it.anyone got the same problem??
death to the false emperor!!!
call the waggh, i dare you...
Yeah, Its sad isnt it, I got the same problem, my brother got me into warhammer after a friend got him into it and I just cant shake it.
Im probably the best at sport in my class, im the fastest sprinter and the 3rd best long distance, the majority of my friends are surfers and skaters......and im a warhammer gamer, so sad
but its fine, none of my friends bag me out or anything there all cool with it.
Why the hell do you say Jock?
we have different things to say in Aus.

Jock is a derogatory term for someone in school who is athletic, like "nerd" for a smart person. The root of the word is based off the "jockstrap."
While I wasn't a stereotypical jock in high school, because I was also smart and an artist, I do have some advice. Just do whatever you want. I hung out with all three crowds in school, and had fun with whoever I wanted to. Sure you might get one or two people who might think you are less cool at first, but you get a whole new group of people for potential friends. The people who ostracize you about what you do for fun, or who you hang out with, probably aren't the best people to be around anyway. In the end you will probably find, as I did, most people simply don't care what you do.
As long as you don't blow off all your friends and completely change your personality I don't think your current crowd will care that much. I just wouldn't go painting models in class or anything.
in all honesty i think the only thing you should be worried about is being true to yourself rather than keeping up a "rep" or popularity. if you like somthing it shouldnt have to be a shameful secret, even if its viewed as geeky or whatever, its just a game! i dont understand why people get so het up about it anyway.
THERES NOTHING WRONG WITH PLAYING WARHAMMER!!! people make it sound like its a disease or somthing
rep counts for S**t all when you leave highschool or college anyway. i cant think of anyone who really cares too much/thinks about the popular kids from highschool/secondary school.
My advice is to learn to ignore peoples' opinions for the few years (though not completely- after all, it's why we have showers every day, for example) you're at school. You'll be over it pretty quickly.
I am, even though I am a little too smart to fit the jock stereotype perfectly. People are shocked when they hear I play something like Warhammer(though of course, they always ask "What's Warhammer?" first). I'm kinda big and proud of my fitness and I can't say that I'm not a little buff. I was captain of JV football two years ago(didn't play last year because I've been a foreign exchange student in Japan for the last year) and starting member on my rugby team(members freshmen to seniors) since freshman year. Also started judo when I came to Japan and got my black belt in 10 months, and won MVP for my rugby team in Japan. So when I tell people that in my free time I actually build and paint models and make armies to battle against other nerds for fun they don't believe me at first. =(
Im aSoldier in the army, im going to fight in Afgan, im also an MMA (mixed martial arts) Fighter, i do Thai kick Boxing, Boxing, Grappling and Wrestling, im going to be entering the MMA fight scene when i get back,
I have a 2000pt marine and 2000pt chaos army, come tell me im a geek/nerd/loser
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
~~ Surrender and serve me in life, or die and slave for me in death~~
Oh really ? Wish I was back in school then, well time machine here I come.
And no I'm not okay.
MEAT IS MURDER
