wow you americas' don't know about football, firstly you call it soccer (its football) also the americans are not good at this sport and that is why so many of you lot don't like it, just how over here we are not big fans of basketball which has less potential of a sport than footie


It might be because most American's don't find it as enjoyable as the other more popular sports in America rather than them sucking at it.

Personally I think Football is boring because you rarely ever score and majority of what you do could be for nothing which it normally is and you run back and forth constantly.

my bad about the way i phrased that, but yeah your right its because you may not enjoy the sport as much since there are so many other dominant sports over there such as baseball, basketball and sea fishing, also not to forget beer pong

LOL Drinking games XD Beer Pong isn't only an American thing though is it? Baseball sucks IMO.

The most dominant sports in the US IMO is American Football, basketball, baseball, Football, hockey, tennis in that order probably... I'm most likely wrong but eh the first four are right xD

I can't really rag on what other people sports people enjoy because everyone has their own preference. I don't understand how people like cricket though. Football* is fun to just kick the ball as hard as you can or to "accidentally" kicking someones shins to get the ball. That was the best part... people used to get so angry it was hilarious.

Lol I boot everyone in the shin who comes near me with the ball. I don't play on a team or anything I just sit back near the goal and make sure no one scores. Sometimes I'll go up and try to go for a goal but it doesn't always end up so perfectly.

I never got into the ice hockey thing... which is pretty shocking since its a pretty aggressive sport. I'm more into American football, basketball, tennis, and I kick a football around sometimes with a friend of mine. We practice tricks and cool looking passes/jukes with it.

Probably the most played sport in the world.

Wikipedia:
The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (International Federation of Association Football), commonly known by its acronym, FIFA, has 208 member associations, which is 16 more than the United Nations and 3 more than the International Olympic Committee.

Most likely true since its known EVERYWHERE its just not as popular in some areas. Also all it requires is a ball to play.

Football as in amearican football?
or football as in england football, which is actually spelled Futball.


The majority of the world do not call it Futball.

Since when did you start calling your foot a "fut"?

'Futball' is just an phoenetic term used in certain countries to dub 'Football'.

Pssh. I regret ever creating this thread. What an arrogant shit.
The rest of the world don't call it "soccer", either.

well it's in my country everywhere and at least every male knows how to play it. it's more general. and it is in many countries. its probably the well most general and known competitive sport in the world. i mean all boys grow up knowing football rules without realising how hey even learnt them lol

and for fun....
http://youtube.com/watch?v=jGsmDeSdOA4


who plays football? who watches it? who enjoys it? or who hates it? who compares and criticises it?



edit: WTF the title changed. the sport IS CALLED "Football" but everytime i mention people think it's AF. arrgghhh they barely use their foot in AF and they call it Football. i mean the subtitles also DID say (no, i mean "soccer")


I call BS on the title change too (and I'm American). This is an international forum, and just because America calls it soccer, doesn't mean the whole world does. So in interest of being fair, I'm going to change the title back to "Association football" and leave it at that.

I wish the mod who changed it had signed their name... but oh well.
