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?

the best sport in the world!! takes practice and intelligence. the hockey players at my school think it's gay and stupid when really they've mistaken that for themselves. they call me weak cause I play soccer so I kicked one in the shin and they almost started crying, who's weak now? soccer is better than any other sport and to those who think different, gtfo.
hockey kid: soccers gay
soccer kid: I will kick you so hard in the leg and you don't know how to kick back cause you just use a stick

The softest sport on earth. Only played by kids who can't take a hit or do anything other than kick a ball. People who play soccer are not respected and should switch to another tougher sport such as hockey.

The most popular sport in the world apparently, much the same way that rice is the most widely eaten food in the world, its not that people want to eat rice or play soccer, they just have no other choice.
I would kill for some soccer and rice right now.

a game not to be confused with a sport is were you kick a ball at a really big net.... that's it no skill or talent is required. It was first invented for mentally handicapped children but was soon played by people who realized they had no skill to play real sports. it is the most popular game in the world due to the fact that there are more unskilled low I.Q people in the world then there is skilled athletes.
Tony... I wish there was a game I could play because I suck at all real sports.
Luigi ... try soccer is super easy and requires no skill or talent. just kick a ball and run.
Tony... Thanks pal I think I will try it after I learn to tie my own shoes.

1. The sport that requires no upper body strength, giving anybody an advantage if they get into a fight with a soccer player.

2. The sport where you run up and down a field... possibly not even getting the ball.

3. The sport that gives competitive girls huge butts.
1. Soccer is not my favorite sport
2. All I do in soccer is run
3. Nobody passes the ball in soccer
4. Spanish people are usually good at soccer
