A fun sport. Also known as Football. Seems theres always an argument between soccer players and American Football players, doesn't make much sense.

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!

About that... You say that we no nothing about a sport, while, chances are, you dont know anything about American football if you think it requires no skill, yet openly bash it too everyone. Good work, you just made a fool of yourself.
Soccer is a fun sport. So is Football.

A REAL definition:

A word or nickname for the sport Association Football and to bring about less confusion in other sports: American Football, Australian Rules Football, etc.

Contrary to popular belief "Soccer" was not coined by the Americans, but by the founding fathers of the "current" game and took the root abbreviation from the word AsSOCiation.

It's played on rectangular field called the "pitch" with 10 players and 1 Goalkeeper. Two 45 minutes halves.

The game usually called a "match" involves the use of the feet and or head. Play the ball with your hand or arm is illegal.

Object is to the ball in the opponents goal, goals are worth 1 point. The team with the most points wins the match.

The game allows a minimal amount of contact, though considerably less that American Football.

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.

a very intense sport that involves a lot of skill. people often diss soccer only because they wish that they could play it as good as others. once you play soccer on a team, there is usually no stopping you. i have been playing for 8 years, and i rock at it. it takes a ton of practice outside of the team practices and games, like dribbling it down the street without looking down, and jugging it on your knees for ten minutes straight. after you have accomplished this, then tell me that soccer requires no skill. during a game, you have to dribble down a field between atleast 4 people trying to get at that moment your most prized possesion, keep the ball out of the 18-yard line and shoot pass a goalie without kicking the ball over or beside the net, which means perfect aim. DONT DISS SOCCER
Jill: Wow, she has been playing for 8 years, look at her go!
Jack: yea i know, playing soccer for that long must mean that she has really strong thighs.
Jill: yea, i wish i started when i was 6!

1) One of the few (admittedly) things at which Americans have always sucked (admit it).

2) The best insult you can use to refer to football when talking to a hooligan in England. Nice beating guaranteed.
American: That's not football, you idiot. It's soccer.
Rest of the Word: Oh yeah? Why is it that what YOU call "football" hardly uses the foot?

Soccer, or futbol, is the worlds largest sport. It requires an extreme amount of skill and natural talent. Usually made fun of by American Football players, when in reality, the sport "American Football" is only a fraction of the size of futbol. It is also proven that to become a professional soccer player, it takes twice the amount of practice compared to an American Football player, you also need a high amount of athleticism, unlike "American Football". This sport is commemorated every 4 years with a "World Cup".
An example of the highly skilled game soccer, people should check out is the Barclay's Premier League
