    Keep your ideas that (NFL) football is better then football (soccer).

    The difference in popularity and fans is comparing millions to billions.

    No Football (soccer) is not just a game of the third world. Countries such as Japan and Germany love it. So its not valid to say football (soccer) only reigns in poor countries.

    In America we have baseball where hitting 3 out of 10 balls makes you a superstar. Where teams rank high while losing half of their games. Yet people say football (soccer) is boring.

    I leave you with quotes from an article in USATODAY heres the link http://www.usatoday.com/sports/soccer/worldcup/2006-07-06-soccer-in-the-us_x.htm

    "Beisel, 35, a banker and son of German immigrants, grew up in this melting pot of a city playing soccer and watching games with his family. "It's not just a game for us, it's a part of our cultural identity," he says. "Each team reflects that nation's culture. The Brazilian players dance. The Germans are physical and precise. It's way beyond just being a sport."

    "And maybe most significant of all, the pace of a soccer game speaks to cultures whose own dramatic histories span centuries if not millennia. Games are less pointed battles (pitcher vs. batter) and more two-act operas where getting up mid-dribble for a beer would be as unthinkable as going for a glass of wine mid-aria."

    Yeah they sold him for a lot of money so im hoping that they pick up some good players with that money.

    I hope they still get Luis Fabiano.

    I was trying to get tix to Chelsea/Club America. Was going to wear my Arsenal jersey and root for America. Too bad tix were just a bit out of my price range.


    I think Milan screwed up big time by letting Gourcuff stay at Bourdeaux. I believe he's going to be the next big thing, and he would have been the perfect replacement for Kaka. But I guess Milan didn't expect Kaka to leave shortly after.

    I know he's trying to look mean and everything, but that uniform makes him look like a Disneyworld ride attendant. :eek::

    And that's one thing about soccer, you can't use your arms or fists. I've never exactly been intimidated by anyone's legs!

    Unlike football, where they wear pads and helmets , football (soccer) players bleed on the pitch.

    And im sure you didnt think out that last sentence before you wrote it, because someones leg brings more strength and power than there fists when someone is coming at you as seen below:

    Round up 12 soccor players and 12 football players and have a cage match. Those soccor wimps would not know what hit thiem! One swing from a football player and 2 soccor players would flop down on the ground...


    :rolleyes:

    Do you mean against fat offensive line men, because if you look at receivers and quarterbacks i dont see brute strength. You could only wish receivers had the speed the top football (soccer) players possess. And lets learn how to spell before we post ;) . Well , i hope you guys continue to enjoy this thread, im done with it. No sense in teaching you commonsense. Keep comparing apples to oranges. Stay ignorant my friends. :)

    :laugh2:

    Do you wanna put a soccer player and a receiver in a bench press competition and see who wins?

    And in reference to my last post, if I get in a fight, I wouldn't be looking at someone's legs and saying "oh man I'm gonna get my *** kicked." (unless of course they literally kick my ***)

    and yet if I put her on an american football field the players would say how cute she looks, maybe even giver her a shoulder ride.

    classless people those soccer players that they would knock a little girl out.

    that's just not right.

    American football players would never do that, we have something called class.

    just to be clear, I was just talking about a figurative little girl, not sure if you have a real daughter or not - if so, I wasn't referring to her

    what I meant by my remark is that saying that a little girl plays soccer is irrelevant to the discussion.... little kids play football and baseball too, so?
