The World Cup!
God dammit I really fucking hate it!
For the next month it'll take over the TV. The news will be infested with the scrawny overpaid pansies falling about and if England go out all I'll fucking hear is how they were 'robbed' or whatever... and if they bloody win I'll keep hearing about it until the next one!
Americans: be thankful your countries couldn't care less about soccer.
Last time, Scooby Doo (film) was bigger than the World Cup in America.
Not everybody can afford GOMAD and a 5000calorie diet, and I can see how these people need a sport played on an international stage that they can relate with. As a compromise I propose that the World Cup of Soccer be contested by women only.

I've had a pretty good time following the games with friends and I'm not much of a fan... I barely know the rules. The thing that confuses me is what's allowed and not allowed.
This got a guy kicked out of the game (and they have to play a man down the whole time!). On the other hand, no one seems to get kicked out for sliding, spikes first, into a dude's chest. I'm sure there's something about the angle of the contact, etc., but I have nfi how those two calls are consistent.

you can gety carded for protesting too much to the ref even.
this has to change.
Referee has to make a split second decision based on what they saw, I admit that cahill one was a very bad call.
There was obviously not menacing intent with that, he just accidentally slid into him. Red Card is harsh.
fuck you smack! i thought this was about how awesome kicking balls are and that mascot called "zakumi".
Oh, is that soccer thingy going on?
Tired at work today, got up at 2:30 am to watch Australia get pummeled by germany…
I do not know why some of you are hating on soccer. It is awesome because it is cheap and pretty much anybody can play. That statement aside, I took it as a PE class this last semester and it is the only way I will have fun running. On top of that, size is still an advantage big time in soccer, I would just get in the way and let people slam into me and fall on the ground. I am not a great ball handler, but I can play a pretty mean defense.
I also played soccer with starving orphans in Africa, they were barefoot and still beat the military team all but one time I played.
