Soccer Anyone?
 
Doubt this will be a very popular thread, but I figured I'd try to find out if anyone watches soccer around here?

I'm a 'casual' fan.

I just watch the WC and the Sounders (yes, MLS is AAA soccer, but I don't want to be a 'hipster' and jump on the EPL bandwagon).

Who the hell gives a shit about soccer on this board? Boringest sport they ever invented. This is a board about AMERICAN football. Soccer is for sissies!

To coin an old phrase, you are entitled to your opinion, even when you are wrong.:wink02:

Doesn't change my opinion any. Football is twice as tough to play.

i've never watched it, but i use to love playing it. it's a healthy sport to get into, lot's of running. better reasons to "accidentally" kick opponents in the face than A. Brown could ever come up with on a punt return.

I would have kept playing but when I was going into 7th grade we moved to a school that didn't have a team.

Well... it's twice as tough to get up after getting hit in Football, but it's twice as tough not to feign injury in Soccer. :chuckle:

But in all seriousness, the difficulty of Soccer (or futbol) is not only the endurance (most players who play full games at full speed will end up running 5+ miles/game), but the coordination of skills.

That is, it requires skill to only use one's foot to control a light-weight ball's movement, but the tougher aspect is getting 11 guys to move as a unit, one that out maneuvers their opponent, no less, and then produce a score.

I still say that Hockey is more difficult in this regard (not only ice skating at high speeds and controlling the puck with a elongated stick, but avoiding opposing players---i.e. hits), but Soccer is a difficult sport to play.

Only someone who doesn't understand the game says otherwise.
