Apparently the world hasn't gotten the memo: soccer is a game for puz zie played by puz zies for puz zies . To think a soccer match, of all sports,is that important that one must punch out the ref bc one rec a yellow card. Go play a real sport you 5 ft 2 puz zie!

Ummmm, no. You actually supported the opinion that soccer is a pus sie sport by pointing out you cant use hands. It is a non-technical, no-contact, everyone plays type of sport perfectly suited for those who dont have the drive to accel or contribute to a physical, team based challenge.

Soccer may be considered by some to be a real sport, but that group is limited mainly to those who lack th ability to compete at a higher level. I'm not denouncing all non-physical sports, some are more technical than physical, ie: golf. Take any dork off the street who never played a sport and 99 times out of a hundred he'll pick soccer because he can immediately jump right in and fit in. If you can run with average speed and kick the ball in the right, direction you'll be immediately accepted as one of the team.

Allowing your kids to play soccer is like telling them you only expect 70% effort, its like telling them "C" grades are ok because its average. Thanks for contributing to the decline of America!!!

I'd like to see you try to take the ball away from any of the girls on my daughter's soccer team. They'd fake you so bad that you'd fall over your own legs. In a similar way, I'd like to see you try to stop them from taking the ball away from you, if it's so easy. They'd be gone from you with the ball in 3 seconds. You wouldn't even know what happened, but....it's so easy. Further, I'd be your fat ass couldn't keep up with them running up an down a 100 yard field with no timeouts.

I've grown to respect what I see in soccer. Never knew how difficult or "technical" it could be. I'm sure you've never even seen a whole game.

Girls? again, supporting my point. As for technicallity of stealing a ball or "faking"? What can i say, i guess thats why you all get a trophy at the end of the year.

You obviously have no physical prowess yourself if challenging me to a topix match of ball faking with your kids. Truthfully, though we'll never prove it on topix, I am very likely a better athlete than you and your girls. Sure, eveyone has a sport they excel at, usually a sport commensurate with their ability. I'm happy your girls have found a hobby their parents enjoy, that's great. Some of us just demand more of ourselves, and have greater expectations of our children.

I'm sorry though, even water polo requires greater strength, agility and tactical thought than soccer. You may be satisfied by the mediocre effort and ability required to run, kick and "fake". Just know that you are programming your kids to accept mediocrity. Your choice, but some of us choose to teach our children that greater rewards will result from greater effort.

Either way, no matter what sport it is a player shouldn't be hitting a referee.

Let's pause and take a step back. The story said the ref was injured before. Just how bad is this ref? Do we have anything on his ref record? If you have been involved deeply in soccer with your kids, you know that there unfit refs out there, but the soccer system keeps protecting them and recycling them back onto the field. I have seen refs not control the game and allow players to seriously injure one another. The ref who does this, and there are many, is just as guilty in a situation as the kid who throws a punch.
There must be some video of this game. Did the goalie really get a bad call? Some refs are extremely biased for various reasons. Goalies have a little more latitude in a one-on-one. Let's get the whole story out on the table first. I know ther kid is probaby toast, but bad ref actions breed such responses.

Actually, the current administration in DC made this one a third world country. Now, let's get some backgound on this ref and some video of the event.

In reality the professional soccer players are better athletes and in better overall condidion than NFL players. An NFL palyer is actually playing less then 12 minutes per game. Soccer players are on the field running all the time for two 45 minute halfs. Only three can be replaced in a game and they cannot come back if they are taken out. An NFL player would collapse underssuch conditions.

If that were not enough, look at an NFL player on the sideline sucking from an oxygen mask after just one run down the field. A soccer player runs the length of the field at full speed the entire game and never gets oxygen.

Basket ball and golf are both boring to watch. I don't know how you can fix golf, but basketball can be made more like Olympic boxing to keep viewer interest. Give each team 100 points and play for two minutes. It would be the same game.
