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 is one of the most popular sports in the world. Its played by overpaid sissy men on a field you could land a 747 on. The goalies defend a net you could park a semi trailer in which is the hardest job on the field. Sometimes goalies are expected to stop in excess of three shots per game.

The most frequently used strategy in soccer involves lying on the the field and writhing around and crying at the smallest semblance of physical contact. Often times when no contact has even occurred but the refs weren't looking. This will get you a free shot that will probably miss the net anyways because hitting a 40 foot wide net is somehow hard.
Sure soccer players can run for extended periods of time as if that is supposed to get me to respect them. Who cares? They should try playing ice hockey where you have to skate the whole time with a lot of equipment on and can't run out of bounds like the girly soccer players. In fact I defy any soccer player to willingly jump in front of a 110 mph shot.

Soccer is also a convenient excuse to display cultural and racial intolerance in the form of riots and murder. Property damage is also usually on display before during and after a soccer match.

Because if watching a 4 hour game that ends in a 0-0 tie with 4 shots on goal between teams doesn't make you want to trample children and throw Molotov's at the police I don't know what will.

But as long as they can run around for extended periods of time most of Europeans will love it.
Jesus that soccer match sure was boring. I fell asleep halfway through because it's just a bunch of guys running around not doing anything. But at least it picked up with the post game race riot.

Something little boys play until they are able to put on pads and play football like a man.
The soccer player met me on the gridiron now he is in the hospital.

A boring, monotonous, and tedious to watch English sport played by nations with no clue on how to play, nor create, anything better.

A sport that has no shame in stupidly kicking a ball back and forth for 90 minutes to then end the match at 0-0.

A sport that despite its pointless monotony comes up with the stupid rule of offside to make it even more absurdly contrived and monotonous.

A sport where a referee can claim whatever he damn pleases and it goes even if the call is obviously 100% inaccurate, catastrophic, and on camera.

A sport so frustratingly pointless; yet hyped, that many of its live spectators loose their heads by minute 45 and rather start killing each other during half time.

A sport that makes all athletic Americans realize by 9th grade that thankfully there are other sports like Basketball, Tennis, Baseball, American Football, Lacrosse, Golf, etc.
Soccer is like Absinthe liquor, it seems good, interesting, amusing, complex, and fun but once you consume it you realize that its bad elements are too overpowering, too much of it is just too hard to bare, insisting would be pointless, and you say forget it, thanks God there is Rum, Gin, or Whiskey.

The best freaking sport in the world! Not only the most popular (the world cup is watched by more people than the super bowl) but simply one of the best.

And to those who claim it is for pussys and is not a contact sport, I have broken ribs, cause of soccer, as well as a dislocated knee and screwed up ankles, and I know somebody, who could die if she gets another soccer related concussion. So just shut up till you can play for 90 minutes straight with only shinguards on!
Guy 1: Dude, howed you do that? flag football in a park?
Soccer player: Freak no, had a soccer game this weekend

The Real Football, the Round Ball Code,the Beautiful game, The World Game.

it is Football because
1) a ball defined in a dictionary is a sphere
2) the players, kick with their foot, the Goalkeeper is the exception as he/she can catch the ball

Round ball code most definitely requires skills like other sports. It may not be as physical as other football codes, but it still requires some physical strength and a shit load of mental strength.

remember there are 22 players on field, and they have to be control themselves from diving hard, and resist from fighting with the opponents- (they get carded two yellows and get suspended for a game in internationals, while in domestic league it might be two games, depending on how rough the oul or tackle was), they also have to be able to control the ball, judge the distance when they pass a ball to a teammate (and this is kicking not throwing a ball),or when they do free kicks, players have to concentrate on a small goal post, which is rectangular and has the cross bar, players have to know what there teammates are thinking meaning the players have to work together in the sense that they have to know where to go and receive the ball. The ball is not controlled by hands but by the foot, and its not easy kicking a ball in a cold winters day or a sultry hot day and even worse a rainy day, which is hard because the ball is harder to kick on a rainy day. They have offside rule.

to top it off "soccer" or Futbol/ Football is a mentally top game,its the ultimate human game, technology doe not interrupt the game like other football codes. Its better with the injustices and justices of the game because it creates drama and people talk about it!!!

Football is a hard sport, even a player, and there are other professional football players of other football codes saying that football (soccer) players have a lot of talent and are skillful
an AFL player said that his teammate "(... got in goal at one stage and one of their coaches (football coach) took a penalty. Tom (player) has good hands – we know that – but he barely moved as the ball flashed past him. The speed and precision was immense."
