Seriously? How can one get into a game when every 30 seconds someone is falling to the ground writhing in pain (so it seems) so much so that one expects to see a bone protruding through the skin only to learn through replay that an opposing player brushed up against them. What a bunch of little b%#ches! No wonder it hasn't picked up popularity in the states until recent years due to the pussification of the US.

I'm trying really hard to stay away from that soccer frenzy that is going on right now,but I love to watch all sports on tv. I am just afraid I will get "into" the USA soccer match and throw something at the tv! Go USA!

I have seen plenty players hurt. Great game.. Let's go USA

No doubt, it is a tough sport. The US, Germany, and England off the top of my head play like men. Italy, Mexico, and Brazil to name a few play like little biotches - I'd be ashamed to flop down on the ground like a spoiled child every time someone touched me in an attempt to draw a penalty. I actually think its an enjoyable sport to watch when they play like men.

She is an expert in soccer & calling others dramatic in the previous post. This is an example of a person who had too many hits to the head.

. You got me...never played soccer. I prefer full contact sports where men don't flop around like little biotches. Seeing how you seem to have taken offense, you must be one of these little biotches that roll around on the ground like a 3 year old having a tantrum

I'm going to guess you sucked at dodge-ball......too.

Soccer is equal to hockey in my book.

So, tell us about your athletic accomplishments.

This was a good thread until one of you buttholes decided simply because Word Woman had her name on it to pounce. Go the heck away if you have nothing to add to the topic that could be identified as semi intelligent. You trolls are a bunch of dog squeeze and ruin everything. She was having a great discussion with us and you buttholes decided to start your crap. I for one am sick of it so go to help. Go back on your stupid forum and leave this one alone.

We're still having a great conversation...the butthole has basically been reduced to playing with its proxy server & judging my (and its own) comments...lol
Well I guess playing with its proxy server is more stimulating than playing with one's self! Hopefully it will stop being so judging of a serious discussion and be welcome to join in.

Watching paint dry is more interesting than watching soccer. My opinion of course. :o)

The physical stamina that it takes to play soccer trumps any sport. There may be more physical contact in football but that doesn't mean the contact in soccer is any less physical. Ask Clint Dempsey how his nose felt after the Ghana match. There are some countries that flop more than others. And certain players too. Renaldo is one of the worst. The flip he did against the United States was one of the more laughable I've seen in the World Cup. I enjoy soccer and have utmost respect for the players. I've seen less celebration after a goal in soccer than after a sack in the nfl so I don't get the whole argument about soccer being all for show. Anyway, let's hope for at least a tie today but a win would be great.

Oh, and this would be a serious comment from me.

It is was so "brutal", why did you play? Are you now a victim?

I agree that soccer is one of the most physical sports. The reason I am not fond of it is because the players spend most of the time running back and forth on the field with little or no action at the goal. I have tried to watch it and enjoy it, but it puts me to sleep. I am glad the USA is doing well, even though their coach didn't expect them to get past the first game.
