Is an abbreviation for Association of Football mainly used in the US. Subject of criticism by Americans that say "its too boring", "its a game of luck", "its for fags"
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)
Soccer fan: Hey buddy, did you see how Zidane managed to dribble past 3 defenders, run 50m, before chipping a shot over the keeper?
Footbal fan: Oh no, I was too busy watching a guy jump on another guy, it was oddly homo-erotic.
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
