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 great kickass sport that requires skill, speed, agility, and determination. All the Americans who say soccer is a pussy sport havent tried it they are just cunt faced assholes bitches that say it is low scoring and boring, but scoring a goal is much harder than getting a touchdown. Soccer players are usually natrual athletes and they are hella awesome.
American football fan: Soccer is a pussy sport
Me: *Kicks him in his tiny balls*
American football fan: OW
Me: Thats how a soccer player kicks bitch*spits on face*

The most exhausting activity one can engage in, next to mass genocide

A game where the will of other men continually test your foundations, and the conviction with which you attain goals.
"I just don't have the energy to play soccer, dad."

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.

Possibly the best sport in the world. A sport that requires actual athletic ability. People who have never tried to play soccer, you need to stop criticizing it. In soccer you need to actually be able to run for 90 minutes straight, play through rain and not sub out at all. Practice every day and dedicate yourself to the sport. You need to play through injuries and shin bruises so deep it hurts to walk. You'll pull so many muscles and be so tired but you still walk back to the field because it's the only place you feel at home. Soccer requires dedication, focus, but most of all you need to want to win and you need to try. Soccer is the best sport ever.
You're only making fun of soccer cuz you know you'll never be able to play it

An awesome sport in which one of the main rules is to kick balls.
Sorry I can't, I have soccer today.

lots of people say soccer is harder than american football because you are constantly moving... how many times do you see a soccer player tackled by a 6'5 300 pound guy and get right back up? if soccer takes so much more work, why arent soccer players built like football players; constantly in the weight room? soccer players may be fast, but they aren't running 4.3 40 yard dashes.
Soccer douche: soccer is so much harder than american football
football player: *knocks soccer player on ground*
soccer douche: shit call my mom and bring the mini van and some ice
