But they haven't copied Man Utd. There are loads of teams with United in their name as there are loads of teams with FC in their names.

Approval-seeking from who? You do know that there are more football fans then any other sport in the world, right? So who do we seek approval from exactly?

except usually the thread is started by a soccer purist asking in a condenscending way why Americans don't get it.

the typical OP; why don't you like it? someone who doesn't care for it will post and then get jumped on for stating their reasons and inevtably called a troll for reponding to the question being asked. if you don't want to hear the responses then don't ask or don't look.

you'd be hard pressed to find a soccer detractor started thread going back several pages in this forum.

Why soccer will never be as big in the U.S. as other sports

Why America Sucks in Soccer: In Photographs

Legit question for those that don't like soccer

why dont americans like world football

Is there a political/cultural split between soccer supports vs. haters in USA?

Do Americans hate soccer as much as the internet leads me to believe?

You didn't do that though. You accused me of calling American people ignorant when I never did.

I am still waiting for you to show me where I said what you said I said.
