a form of football played between two teams of 11 players, in which the ball may be advanced by kicking or by bouncing it off any part of the body but the arms and hands, except in the case of the goalkeepers, who may use their hands to catch, carry, throw, or stop the ball.

It seems to me that there are more people bashing people who bash soccer, than there are people who bash soccer on this page.
I dont understand why some people feel the need to compare soccer with American Football. Each sport requires unique skills. Soccer requires alot of stamina, American Football is more Strength/speed oriented. Some people even went as far to say that Soccer players endure more pain, and that the sport is tougher than American Football. I have spoken with many people who have played both sports(some of which liked soccer better) and even they will laugh at the idea that soccer is as tough as Football. Im also pretty sure that most of the 'American Football' bashers have never actually played the game, some of them even point out Americans should not bash soccer untill they have played. In light of the fact that Soccer is the most popular sport in the world i can imagine that a larger percentige of Americans who prefer American Football have actually played both sports than the percentige of Soccer fans who have played (American)football, especially considering the fact that it is more difficult to find a Football(American) league in other countries than it is to find a Soccer league in America. In light of all this i suggest these people look up the definition for hypocrite.

Id also like to adress the people who claim America to be ignorant of other countries sports to look at their own country and see how popular American football is. Because in the United states soccer is a widely played sport, and it is obvious to me that other countries are just as, if not more ignorant to American Football, than America is to soccer.

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world.
