Sport in which its diehard fans are completely self-righteous and dilusional. With that aside, soccer is an excellent sport that requires extreme stamina and coordination. Soccer (as with any other sport due to differing skill sets) should not be considered a superior or inferior form of sport.
Soccer fans in the USA front aggrogance about soccer to hide their envy of the NFL's popularity.

Tyler: Hey man, do you play soccer?
Taylor: Yeah dude, it's awesome. It takes a lot of skill and practice and it keeps you in good shape.

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.

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 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.

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?
