Default The King Of All Sports

American culture is arguably the most dominant cultural force in present times. Although they may deny it, most Americans are ethnocentric; they tend to think their way of life is superior to that of other people.

When it comes to sports it is no different. it's always been said that soccer is the king of all sports, and americans can't stand that.

they always argue their sports are better, and that soccer is boring.

now i grew up playin and watchin soccer; i personally think it's the best of all sports. most popular sports (i.e. basket ball, American football, ...) are modeled after soccer.

so, any americans in here make yourself heard. what do y'all have to say?

By the way, it's not called soccer; it's universally known as FOOTBALL.

Well in the U.S. it's called soccer, and that sport can't even compare to basketball, real football, or baseball. The best sport to watch though is the NFL, then to play i think is basketball.

i think people fomr outside of here (america) dont understand how bad the sport is here. the players just suck so much its ridiculous and we refuse to watch. thus, we think that all soccer is like this. i hate soccer, but really want to go to europe and see some matches all over the place.

yea, man. americans don't like football cause their players are weak. they should check out the European Champions League or the Copa Libertadores.

Apparently American football had its roots in England.

Most modern versions of football originated in England, where a form of the game was known in the 12th century. In subsequent centuries football became so popular that various English monarchs, including Edward II and Henry VI, forbade the game because it took interest away from the military sport of archery. By the middle of the 19th century, football had split into two distinct entities. Still popular today, these two sports were soccer and rugby. American football evolved from these two sports. The sport called soccer in the United States is still known as football throughout much of the world.

I didnt read the whole thing but that ^ paragraph gives some good info. It seems football and soccer (i bet europeans hate the term "soccer") were linked together and then split into 2 entities.

Soccer is the World Sport, Isnt it the only ONe?

Well im a huge fan of soccer, but i love NFL Football more.

Yes American League players suck ass, European Football is way better, prolly cause they got players from across the world playing.

Soccer is only fun to watch when 2 good teams are playing each other!

Like right now im watching Mexico vs Colombia and Good ol Colombia is winning 2-1!!!!

definatly. i cant stand watching bad soccer. because it can be bad. but when you get to the upper levels nothing even comes close. to be a top notch soccer player you have to be able to do so many things well and with so much pace for so long. mind blowing some of the shit these guys can do.
