What Americans think of Soccer

I know, I know. You European purists will want to have my head for this. But for the sake of avoiding confusion, from now on "football" will always be referring to American football, and soccer will be, well, soccer.

Soccer has a bad rep, partly because of how 'little action' there is during a game. In many games, no-one scores for a full hour, or for the entire game for that matter. Watching soccer is an acquired taste, I admit, but what I consider "soccer cancer", like in this video, is what many people use to ridicule soccer.


And speaking of ridicule, Americans can now add one more reason: Internet porn addiction. Take it away, Jim Rome (ESPN host who, unsurprisingly, hates soccer).



At least I now have an excuse for my own porn-collecting heyday in high school.

  3. Ironically those types of fake out dives originated from South AMERICA. I know its not quite the same but its still funny. That guy hasn't got a clue what he's talking about though.

  4. That's a hilarious video but "some guy" is right. Soccer has a huge fan base. It just seems like the players are more fragile compared to other sports.
