It was a football (soccer) fan who came up with the tread in the first place.

What do you expect?

TBH with you this is the only thread I have seen in the soccer forum by this person, he isn't necessary a fan, could just be curious.

It works both ways. The OP knocked our sports in the post with generalizations of his own. This thread was never going down another path other than the one it has taken.

Lock it up. Please.

Really? MLS attendance is nipping at the heels of the NBA and NHL.

And here we go again. Let me jot down some of the cliches we see in a typical American soccer forum....

- It's not 'soccer', it's football.
- Soccer sucks.
- MLS attendence is gaining on the NBA and NHL, which means it's a top sport.
- America doesn't care about soccer.
- Soccer is a cheep sport that ANYONE can play.
- Soccer is REAL football, not 'throwball'/'handegg'.
- The the rest of the world loves this sport, why not America.
- It's the #1 sport in the world. American football doesn't even come close.
- I don't know anyone who cares about soccer.
- Soccer is boring/American football is boring.
- Soccer players are weak, girly.
- Football players are fat.
- Soccer fans are cry babies.
- Football fans are idiots.


... did I get ALL the stereotypes out of the way?

Let's stop trying to convince and/or insult each other . Who cares if an American football fan doesn't like soccer or vice versa.

I might do just that if the tone here doesn't improve. This forum doesn't have a specific moderator, and I can see some editing and post deleting just in the last couple days that is needed here, something I don't have time for at the moment. I will get back to this thread later though.

Disagreeing with subject matter is one thing and at times is ok. Posters stomping on the TOS is not ok.

soccer is fun to play but very boring to watch.

the speed and ferociousness of American football makes it an exiting sport to watch not to mention the breaks in between plays make it a perfect spectator sport to enjoy while eating, drinking and socializing.
