    Personally I like soccer, play it on weekends and tuesdays. I watch football too. I know Americans loves football but they are improving in soccer i good to see them play.

    It always pissed me off that football in america is called soccer. Like why not just name american football soccer. Why steal the name of another sport? Stupid.

    I romanticize the sport like a fool so this might come off as hyperbole but:
    • A lot of history and pedigree is involved
    • The on-field action is aesthetically pleasing, some teams play very captivating
    • A lot can happen in 90 minutes, some games are like WWE Ironman matches
    Some clubs/teams have socio-political backgrounds, while it leads to chaotic scenarios it provides a dramatic spectacle

    I guess I can see that.

    me personally though, I'm not a huge fan of watching sports on television in general. I mean sure I'll watch a game or two here and there, but I'd much rather be there in the audience experiencing what's going on for myself. that's just me, though

    I see what you mean funny enough I've been to more basketball games than soccer games admittedly. Like I've been saying as a kid, soccer/football is without exaggeration my life.

    If I wanted to watch a bunch of dudes fail to score for 90 minutes, I'd go to the bar on a Friday night. Give me football over soccer.
