They aren't alike at all. I enjoy them for different reasons.

I think soccer is any thing put fast paced, most of the time nothing is really happening. I know when my team is down 1-0 at the 60th minute there is 95% chance my team will lose, because the other team is just playing to kill the clock.

Soccer: Fast-paced, exciting, simple rules everyone can understand; goes to a depth beyond the sport -- geo-politics, different styles of play depending on the country, region, etc. Would recommend to my kid, b/c get a lot of exercise in a short amount of time.
Soccer = better kids exercise. Football = rough and tough.

Soccer is for kids, football is for adults.

I agree with you 100%. Plus with soccer they learn to feign injuries and make funny faces.

Right -- it's run by the French. That's why the referees are incompetent, the players petulant, and the vuvuzelas ubiquitous.

A silly sport, governed by silly people. (Whose team were a total embarrassment, BTW...)

Ah, but in eight years, America will be a top-ranked soccer power, and the rest of the world still won't know a fumble from a blitz.

And yet you still won't be able to make it past the quarters.

LOL. You're probably right. Somehow, though, I don't think it'll bother us all that much.

(BTW, congrats to you Kiwis. You showed courage and pluck.)
