There is a simple reason for this.
We do not consider it a sport.(soccer)
More of a high school girl's game.
Then explain why it's by far the most popular team sport in the world and baseball and north American football are but local and limited-to-one-region sport, just not catching on outside the US and Canada. And watch out, as soccer (real name : football) is fast catching on , at last in the USA and Canada. Don't forget, for kids who want to do sports, soccer is affordable - shoes and a ball is all you need and they last forever

Having said that, soccer, as a totally-boring sport (field is too big, game is too defensive), is second only to baseball. Why is baseball even more boring than soccer? Easy, it has no time limit. A game can last forever, and even when they only play the regulation 9 innings, it seems like forever. And a sissy game it is, what with designated hitter dinosaurs who can no longer field and run but can still manage to swing a bat against the worst pitchers in the history or the game. Well, in all fairness, there is some excitement. Indeed, who can be the most disgusting spitter, how much tobacco juice they can hurl in one single spit, and how long they can scratch that crotch. Meanwhile, as cobwebs grow under outfielders' armpits...ohum.

They have been saying that for forty years and soccer hasn't rally grown that much in popularity. The only way it will grow is if the government continues to put restrictions on American football. Children can play basketball in a much smaller space and without expensive equipment.

Doesn't happen very often, but Rogue's article (he didn't write it, and he supplied the link) is correct. Only we North Americans call it soccer. Everyone one else calls it football. The strange thing is we call our sport football, whereas the foot kick is only used for field goals, punts and point conversions. Yup, football it is, and the rest of the article is BS, Qatar doesn't need those tanks for 2022 - Qatar is filthy rich , money coming out of its ears, so they buy tanks and other useless stuff.
Well, They may need those tanks for things other that sports crowd control. They live in a bad neighborhood. Iran is a short distance away and Iraq could always revert back to a dictator with conquest on his mind.

Now, GZ was already investigated by the FBI for civil rights violations and was cleared. They can not reopen the investigation without new evidence, thank you big mouth Barack Obama!

But the feds opened the door Sunday to reopening the case.

“Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction, and whether federal prosecution is appropriate,” the Justice Department said.

Call it what you will...I don't consider baseball a sport either.

Soccer will never be a sport in my mind. Until it becomes more competitive.

30% of all soccer (football) matches end in a draw.

It is even possible for the World Cup to end in a draw.

Game...not a sport.

..In addition, it doesn't cost money for kids to play sports in the U.S.

Unless you count picking them up after practice.

I had to buy wrestling flats for wrestling.

All of my track and field equipment was provided for...except foot ware.

All of my football equipment was provided.(unless you wanted specialized foot ware.)

In return they asked that we participated in a fundraiser once a year. Was not mandatory.

Well, if I had a choice, or rather, if I were FORCED to make a choice,(this is all rhetorical) between my child wearing a porn-emblazoned t-shirt and one with Hitler and a Swastika, I'd unhesitatingly choose the porn one. Both are unacceptable, of course, but the latter is not as bad and harmful as the former. BTW, I agree, in the extreme, that even Hitler on t-shirts is allowed under the 1st amendment, or my Constitution, but Jews marching to the ovens on a t-shirt, either at school, university or on the streets is a hate crime and I'd be surprised it would be tolerated, here or in the US.
I agree with you on the moral right to wear such a t-short not existing, but we are talking about something much more minor, simply the legal right to do so in a public place.

That right is what the First Amendment is all about. And, because we want to be as little like dictatorships as possible, even people who hate Nazis fight for their right to express their repulsive views.

BTW, the distinction between t-shirts depicting pornography and those depicting swastikas or people marching to gas ovens, has been legally defined as the distinction between artistic expression, which is protected but hardly a sacred right, and political expression---which is close to a sacred right. Courts have ruled that pornography, when it is considered offensive, can be banned---as it certainly would be if in a public place. But political expression cannot be banned in a public place (not in a church or private business, as discussed before) unless there is a threat to public safety---and that threat cannot merely be assumed but has to be proven.

There are always twists and minor points. For example, the KKK has the right to wear its robes and march. But does it have the right to burn a cross?(Certainly not on private land, but what about on city, state or federal land? Well, obviously, the fire laws would be relevant to the situation.)

Neither Pooptard or Wotard could ever answer the question, "what crime did GZ commit that started this event?". Trayvon assaulted GZ simply because he was a creepy cracker, and nothing more. Trayvon never would have been shot if it were not for that but Libtards think they have the right to assault people simply because they want to.
Your question is a matter of conjecture Rogue. You want an answer to something you believed happened not what is absolutely known to have happened. What we actually know of the incident is that a 29 year old man stalked and shot to death a 17 year old kid on a rainy night for apparently no other reason than he “looked suspicious”

We know this because the killer admitted as much. He also admitted to being in fear of his life from a skinny kid armed with a bag of skittles who he outweighed by 40 pounds or so. At 29 I can picture no scenario where a 17 year old kid who I outweighed by 40 pounds mustering the nerve to jump on me unless he was in fear of his life. And I can picture no other scenario in this case either.

I disagree. Just like in the Rodney King case where the feds charged the officers for violating Rodneys civil rights, then can try and do the same to GZ.
Law enforcement officers have to use MINIMUM force to effect an arrest and it appeared to they used excessive force. But George waited 40-45 seconds while being assaulted by Trayvon and then he fired only once so I can see how they could claim this this time.
Ah, but under Florida's SYG law, not only does the state have to repay Zimmerman for all his legal expenses but also things like lost wages and no one can sure him!!! Read it and weep you Idiotards.
