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.
The world's most popular sport
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
