    See article above for details. My rebuttal is below.

    In no realm do I compare sports to blasphemy. But if I did, I wouldn't care if someone thought soccer or football was better.

    Soccer appeals to people who enjoy professional wrestling. The problem is that slow motion and instant replay continue to demonstrate that theatrics are very much a part of the game. A phantom tackle that has the player rolling in agony for the length of the field and miraculously healed as soon as the opposing team player has been shown a card or a penalty has been awarded for the role of "best actor". It's no wonder that there is violence in the stands and that soccer hooligans run amok seeking to right an endless stream of wrongs. Where most sports conclude with evidence that the best team won on that day, soccer is nothing more than a modern day court of miracles, all too obvious in its deceit.

    Isn't Soccer the game where you fall to the ground and scream if someone gets within 10 feet of you?

    I get sick and tired of ESPN continually shoving soccer highlights down our throats on SportsCenter.

    ENOUGH ALREADY!

    REAL American men don't like soccer, and sure as hell don't PLAY soccer. Soccer is for pansies! Period!

    Let the WOMEN play soccer. The game is PERFECT for females!

    When I was a kid (a LONG time ago), "soccer" was called "kickball", and it was played by elementary school kids.

    I couldn't give a rat's ass if "Man U." lost to "Man City" yesterday, or if "Pablo Escobar United" beat "Juan Valdez City" today.

    REAL football players don't wear gym shorts, high socks, bounce balls off their heads, and take off their shirts when they score!

    Out of respect for my friend and fellow poster, manu1959, I choose to refrain from stating my thoughts about the boring piece of shit came known as soccer.

    Soccer's a great sport. Stop being mindless Jim Rome drones and realize it. There's nothing like the World Cup and all of the haters would get owned on a soccer field.

    In it's entire history, soccer has spawned TWO things................hooliganism and a cure for insomnia.

    Some people like soccer and some don't. That pretty much fits with any sport. This claim that one sport is great and one is terrible is simply someone spouting their opinion like it matters.

    As for the haters getting owned on the field at the World Cup, that pretty much fits all sports.

    The haters would get owned at the Super Bowl, the World Series or the NBA Finals.

    I just mean you have to have great conditioning to play soccer. When was the last time you saw a fat soccer player? You see plenty of fat guys in the other sports.
