Lets look at this systematically:
1. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world with over 200 members, second only to the United Nations. Well seems like its doing all right if the majority of the world likes it
2. Soccer requires extreme endurance, speed and technical ability. Many americans like to compare soccer to american football: Soccer is 90 minutes, no stoppages with only a 15 minute break (can reach upto 2hrs in overtime). American football is 60 minutes, w/plenty of stoppages in between(timeouts, etc) and a godamned halftime show?!
3. Look at the greats of soccer: Zidane, Ronaldinho, Pele, Cryuff: they are notable for finesse on the field, for possessing such great ability it seems impossible to normal people. Notable american football players have received recognition, because they can catch (whoop-de-fucking-do!) or they can push another guy
4. Soccer requires physical strength: bones have been broken, muscles torn and the only piece of protection you have is a shin guard. Football players on the other hand are decked out in so much protective gear that its hard to differentiate between person and pads. Hmm...seems like someone's a wittle scared of getting hurt (wanna play a real contact sport? play rugby)
Footbal fan: Oh no, I was too busy watching a guy jump on another guy, it was oddly homo-erotic.
a real soccer player, shaking three defenders
best sport ever.. obviously
Soccer player: *Punches lazy fuck in the face*
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.
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.
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 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.
