    hey, I feel stupid as hell now. I change my mind soccer is the world's greatest sport of all time. Now I'm interested in trying out for the USA national team cause I think I have skills at this foot sport.

    :D:D:D

    I can't stand watching soccer and I've tried to give it a chance.

    Most action consists of faking injuries, shamelessly acting for the refs, and once a team is up a goal to just play keep away and kick the ball out of bounds as much as possible to kill the clock.

    Tell me more! :rolleyes:

    Maybe, just maybe, the US "sucks at soccer" because Americans don't care about it very much. Baseball, American football, basketball, ice hockey, and even golf draw more interest among American youth than soccer. If Americans loved it, the US would have a damned good team. Soccer appeared on the stage as a major sport long after American sporting interest was already saturated.

    Americans who truly love soccer love it as an international game. The best players play in the top leagues and those are not based here. We love football, baseball and basketball more because we know we have most of the best world players.

    Americans might love soccer more if we were at the heart of the best play in the world ... but we aren't and the sport itself is not TV friendly. It may overtake hockey at some point but not the NFL, MLB or the NBA.

    disagree..... soccer never took off in America b/c there are so many more intriguing and better sports than soccer. Soccer is blah..... I can only take WC in small doses. I could watch an NFL game in its entirety, :)

    USA has a much better collection of sports.... Soccer is the odd ball here :bricks:

    If that were true then nobody would ever go to a Lion's game.

    Soccer is a very slow sport w/ little or no scoring.


    sports where you can score and or be a hero:)

    Football
    Hockey
    Lacrosse
    Baseball
    Basketball
    Track/Field



    if I forgot an obvious one plz chip in....

    all of these games except baseball are fast paced.... and physical (not Track)....... but you obviously get it:)

    who wants to play stupid slow soccer when we have all these options in the American sport culture.:confused:


    hell I'll play soccer.... put me in net so I can wait 20 minutes until I see a good shot..... I have great hands.... Soccer goalie might be my calling. :rofl:




    the ignorant Euros laugh at the name of our game and how we do not use our feet to move the ball..... guess what Christiano Ronaldo's of the world....... NFL players are much more quicker, faster,stronger and way more athletic than futbol player.:cool:


    It ain't even close...... No I don't count either of the lines DL or OL....... but they are surely 8 times stronger than a Pro-Soccer punk.:):):)

    weak little pansies that take dramatic dives to draw cards... phucking go to Hollywood you losers.:D

    to truly understand this question one must ask "why is it the most popular sport in the world?"


    I'll tell you why. Soccer is such a dirt poor sport and everyone in the world can play it b/c all you need are your feet.:bricks: o and 1 ball.

    the cheap nature of soccer is it costs nothing to play.
    Kick a ball around w/ your feet..... poor countries can play it and rich ones.

    Wealthy nations like the United States can afford more expensive equipment tand can afford play more intresting sports that necessitate more $ to play them.


    I'll name a few of each

    $$$$$$ sports of America and the World
    Hockey
    Lacrosse
    Football if you have to buy the equipment.
    Golf
    Surfing
    Skiing/ water skiing
    Snowboarding
    Luge
    Bobsledding
    skeleton
    Figure Skating
    Ice Dancing
    Gymnastics
    Speed Skating
    Ski Jumping
    those other BS new snow events
    curling
    Bodybuilding
    I can keep going



    The poor sports of America and the World
    Soccer
    Baseball
    Basketball
    Cricket
    Rugby
    Australian and Canadian football
    Ping Pong
    Hand Ball
    Badminton
    Volleyball





    that is off the top of my head... what am I missing?:confused:

    Poor sports?? Football is a poor sport??? Thats why teams pay £50million+ for a player, and then pay him £150,000+ a week to play!

    You are clearly blind!
