I'd like my narrative to be broken by Facts & Opinion
Soccer is a term coined by the English. NOT the Americans.
Soccer is an abbrev. for Association of Football.
Soccer is the most widely watched sport in the world.
Most countries call it by a more logical name - FOOTBALL.
It is a sport of endurance where success depends on agility, skill & team strategy
It is a sport which can be technical in play like the Germans or magical like the Brazilians.
It is a sport which elicits a chant & fervour from the audience that is unmatched by any other sport.
I think World Cup Football (soccer) is way better than American football for the following reasons
1. Its action is constant and not constantly interrupted game play.
2. It relies on skill & technique as opposed to brute force and body weight where skill is less important
4. The size of the player is irrelevant as the focus is on the play of the game as opposed to the player of the game.
5. It's not a game where you wear helmets and have cheerleaders and fancy stuff to hype the game.
6. Its a sport which does not need a high score to make up for a low IQ
Why I think Americans prefer their "Football"
Their culture/attitude makes BIG seem better. Skill is not important. Glamour & marketing hype combined with brute force and size is more attractive to an American. To make my point - Large Cadillacs (big cars), WWF, baseball (less skill than cricket where you can hit the ball in a variety of ways).
Motorcyles where they find Harleys to be more attractive than the latest sport bikes (they call them crotch rockets). Imagine telling yourself a Harley sounds good compared to the hair-raising sounds of the Jap/Italian bikes. What if they made aircraft that sounded like that instead of the modern turbine. I'm trying not to bash but make a point - it's just culture and atttitude.
Someone commented about Americans building the Internet, airplanes, phones. A great many Great minds have been of non-American descent that would have come from European descent/heritage/ancestry. So that's a moot point.
How silly can you be if you think soccer is for gays. By that token, wearing gear to protect yourself should qualify for gayness. What if poeple said the way a pitcher throws a ball in baseball looks gay. You really have to be stupid to make comments like that about soccer/sport.
Women play baseball too. That does not make the sport gay.
This is a sport that appeals to basic instinct. Take a person that has not been culture-brainwashed and he will levitate towards basic instinct. That is why the world loves and identifies with football. To make my point, the world loves American music & movies. They could have loved American football in the same way. The fact that they dont is because it's just nowhere close to the passion that comes about with World cup football. People love to watch soccer regardless of whether their country plays or not.
IF the Americans were to win the World cup, have women go crazy after them, etc., their perception would change. The rest of the world already has the right perspective. They dont like to watch it because they are currently not faring well. And they don't like to admire outside of their own. That is not sporting. That is not sport.
Further cases in point :
I've spoken about American Football & Harleys. Both religions in the US. And nowwhere else.
Now consider the METRIC system of measurement. Its followed by the ENTIRE world except the US. This cost the US a lot of money and is also less effective & unnecessarily more complex. Google and find the truth.
The US Electric system is also different - 110 Volts and is again - less effective than the system used in the rest of the world.
All of these only underline attitude and undermine reason.
Soccer is a sport where a Ball is played with your foot
Sport 'ASSOCIATED' with the world except the US
I'd rather pretend-its-GAY than play-and-pray
The world's most popular sport
by anonymous Sep 27, 2003 add a video
A game in which you actually have to be able to run for at least 90 minutes straight (unlike 'American Football' where they stop 'playing' every 2 minutes). It involves speed, strength, skill as well as a shit load of practice and dedication. If you've never played it and you're bashing it anyway, get the fuck off your ass and try to do anything close to what the professionals can do. It's harder than it looks, jackass.
Lazy fuck: Hey look at me, I'm a lazy fuck that has nothing better to do than sit on my ass and make fun of things I know nothing about!
Soccer player: *Punches lazy fuck in the face*
The world's best sport. To the american football fans that bash it saying it involves no skill, try the following:
1. Put a ball in the upper corner with 5 men blocking your way
2. Drible 3 players without getting the ball stolen
3. Keep the ball in the air for 10 minutes straight without using your hands.
When you can acheive it, then tell me soccer needs no skill. About you saying it's a "pussy" sport, there are soccer players that play with broken hands and/or fingers (because it is FOOTball), you can badly damage your knee, legs, ankles, etc because you only use shin protection.
Soccer pwns american football
The most criticized sport in the United States because of "low scoring, no contact, look gay, fags, blah blah".. when actually its the best sport in the world. It is normally dissed by American Football players that feel they are "men" because they wear a shitload of pads and run for 5 seconds at a time. Most of the time, the hot ladies end up with a soccer player.
American Football player - How did he get that fine girl?
Hot girl - He plays soccer. I love soccer players.
American Football player - Damn. My penis is small.
Soccer player - Ho Ho Ho.. I'm the man.
Sport that all the sexy men play.
Guys with great, muscular legs! Yummy!
Man, he plays soccer, what a hottie!!
Soccer is the world's most popular sport, and for good reason. Soccer actually requires physical skill and mental toughness. Unlike lame US sports like football, baseball, or nascar (nascar for fuck's sake), soccer players are required to put in some effort.
Football players rest every single goddamn play. Baseball players stand in a field for hours playing with themselves. Nascar isn't even a sport--it's driving a car in a fucking circle 500 times.
For those who say soccer is a pussy sport, stop being ignorant. Football seems tough but with all those pads it's pointless. It's just a pussified version of rugby. Wow America sure screws up good sports.
Soccer is better than football because it takes actual talent.
Soccer girls are hot.
American football is retarded because they never use their feet except for kickers/punters. Call it throwball/runball/carryball/idiotball, just not football.
The best sport known to man. Takes a shit load of indurance and speed.. i would know im a soccer player..soccer kicks ass |..|,
If you dont like soccer.. call me at 1-800-eat-shit
