You of all all people would enjoy it, you need someone to explain the the game. Not just the rules, but the game.


I meant playing soccer, not watching.

I love soccer.

I coached Special Olympics sissy kick.
Enjoyed the tourneys.
The game seems prehistoric compared to American football.

Nice to see some other soccer players on here. I have played the beautiful game since I was 3, made it to ODP regional team but nothing beyond that. I coach my kids now. such an incredible sport. The World Cup 2006 in Germany was an incredible experience in person, even though the US got bounced. MLS has improved, yes, but our problem in America (and why we will never win big) is there are too many options.
My kids for example, both play soccer and love it, but there’s also Lacrosse, baseball, Boy Scouts, you name it. In most other countries — especially the Top 10 — it’s soccer or nothing. And lastly, American boys idolize the NBA, NFL and other stars that they see on TV.

Soccer is a hard sport to play well, but IMO is is not the hardest to play. Off the top of my head I would put boxing, wrestling, swimming and tennis as more exhausting, with basketball and rugby as equals.

Still, I find it to be a great game at the highest levels.

A quick scan of every single NBA roster determined that this is a lie.

Nah, I’m used to your tired argument. Guys like you probably complain about a game that ends in a 0-0 tie. It’s not your fault, you just don’t understand what you’re watching. Like millennials — it’s not their fault that their parents coddled them and created that sense of entitlement. I actually feel bad for people like you that don’t know the game of Soccer.

But it’s cool. I don’t come here for anything related to soccer. So Let’s stick to fantasy football
