Soccer (a.k.a Football, The Beautiful Game) is a sport that has been played in one form or another throughout the world for at least 2000 years. No one has the right to claim it as a sport they invented, neither the British, French, Chinese nor any others. This sport has evolved over the centuries and has adopted characteristics from around the world. The English in the 1800's were the first to create a Football Association, regulating the sport and creating the basis of the "Laws" we know today, they did not invent the sport, the Brit's formalized it. Before anyone comments further on who invented the sport and it's origins please do you research. Start at the official FIFA website, they have a breif history of the sport on their website.
P.S: Soccer is a word invented in England, it is a bastardization on the word "Association Football" to distinguish between Rugby Football (a.k.a Rugger) and Association Football (a.k.a Soccer) on University campus in the 1800's where both sports were played.
To all my English/UK friends ... stop complaining, you invented the word we use today. :-)
Yank: You play Soccer?
Brit: What's Soccer, mate?
Yank: You know it as Football.
Brit: Why do you Yanks call it Soccer.
Yank: I don't know, why did you Brit's invent the word?

A game enjoyed by ten year olds and people outside the United States. Nobody relevant enjoys soccer. It is a faggy looking game you can get no pleasure participating in or watching. Eurofags especially get worked up over it, because in their countries, soccer is the only thing they're good at, as they've long been irrelevant as world powers for ages. In Europe, soccer is called "football". It makes more sense to call that football than American football, but since it's such a shitty sport, nobody in the U.S. can bring themselves to call it that.
Eurofag: Blimey, mate, what a rousing game of football!
American: Soccer's for fags, limey.
Eurofag: Wot wot? Oh yeah? Well the pound beats the dollar!
American: Enjoy your faggy no-hands game, loser with bad teeth.

An absolutely horrid "sport". The only strategy in this "sport" is setting formations and subbing substitutions. In football, you have to memorize hundereds of plays and formations. Like for instance, if your a WR and a QB says "42 red blue right" You must know EXACTLY where your going to be on the field, what rout to take, what player to block, etc. Absolutely no dumbasses are allowed in the big leagues, take Ryan Leaf for instance. This guy was a dumbass jock, and becuase of it, he turned out to be horrible in the NFL. You could be a dumbass jock in Soccer and you could still be succsesfull.

You are not required to have ANY upperbody strength in Soccer, and the only "injury" these soccer players have are sprained ankles, and you know how they got that? By being tripped! Boo fuckin' hoo, be a man.

The refferies are fucking sad. There calls are based on OPINION, what the hell is up with that? Like for instance in the world cup, one american guy got tripped by an italian, and the refs shows a red card, even though he TOUCHED THE BALL and IT WAS THE FORST FUCKING FOUL OF THE GAME. The refferies pull out these "cards" on impulse. Basicly, the only reason America did not get past the first round was becuase we lost that guy and we had to settle for a tie. In Football, if a referie calls someone out (because there are no fouls because football isn't for pussies) He ALWAYS checks with another Ref to see if he agrees. And even if they missed a call (Which they hardly do) the COACH (Not Manager) can tell the refferies if he thinks they did, and they ACTUALLY listen.

Another reason Soccer Sucks, is because of the point system. Do you know why Hockey got rid of these "ties"? Becuase having ties in a game are STUPID! So why dosn't soccer have overtime to decide the tie? Becuase soccer feels that it has to be so boring that it should have 0-0 ties. I mean, atleast when your going to football, baseball, basketball, or hockey game you KNOW there is going to be a score, it's guerenteed. And this goal-differential is also an embarrismant. Imagine if your goalkeeper was having a bad game and you lost 5-0. It would take over a month just to break even! Like when the US lost 3-0 in the World cup, but then played VERY well the next two games. We didn't get passed the first round, because of that 3-0 loss. The only way we could have gotton past is if we won a game 3-0. It wouldn't matter if we did win the next two games, because we would still need a goal differential of 0 to break even. What a messed up system!

And yes, after all that there is still something wrong with soccer: Everything else. The game itself lasts for only 90 minutes, a football game lasts for 210 minutes. The game of soccer contains passing the ball over and over and over and over again and some scoring. In Football, EVERY play is exciting, whether it be a passing play or running play. In soccer, the ONLY thing exciting are the goals, in football, EVERY aspect of it is exciting, whether it be a long pass, amazing catch, broken tackle, hard hit, interception, long run, sack, or even the time inbetween plays.

A violent and offensive 'sport' played by many Euro 'athletes.' Riots, killings, and death are common. Hated by Americans
1) Matt and I want to see some senseless violence and death, so we're going to a soccer match.

2) "I half expect to go home and see a joint in my kid's mouth, and he's 2...better that than a soccer ball on his foot."

not near as entertaining as those riots that break out in the stands among the fans who at some point must realize what a boring fuckin piece of shit game they are watching after several hours and the score is still zero to zero and so they just decide to punch the drunken fuck next to them to create a little (any actually) action...
Go soccer hooligans go!

A gay ass sport that requires minimal athleticism. A sport that faggots play to try to be cool. All they do is run and kick a ball and cry when they get hurt. The sport pussies play instead of a real sport like water polo or lacrosse. Soccer is also called football or gayball or i have a big pussy ball.
Faggot soccer play: LOL I PLAY SOCCER, ME SO COOL
Hot girl: You are gay. Water polo is a real sport.
