association football is the world favourite sport for a reason and it will never be replaced just cause stupid petty americans decided they'd make a stupid little game, american football. in my opinion it doesnt matter wat americans think about association football proper european and south american football fans will have the last laugh as it is and always will be the worlds most popular sport.

No disrespect to the UK, but there is a reason that Americans represent 6% of the world's population yet control 50% of the world's wealth. Soccer is a poor-man's sport, and that may just be whey it remains the world's most popular sport.

I understand how ignorant individuals like you will disrespect a sport. To tell you the truth I play most sports but Baseball is the boring one. As a fan you just sit there waiting for a person to actually make the ball go somewhere. The word "futbol" is what soccer is called around the world. Football was just taken by Americans and was used to name their sport. Read your history little man the football was made from the futbol ball. So football is just a fake, a copycat of Futbol.
Football games are boring because most of the time both teams punt the ball back and forth, back and forth. Also when they use their runningbacks it makes no sence since they rarely break away. Futbol is the most popular sport in the world and will continue to be since it is a sport that can be played by countries throughout every continent. I have only seen Fotball in the U.S. You say that Futbol is boring because they run, walk, and don't do anything; well the games you probably saw were MLS Leauge games which comparisson to Football would be The Houston Texans playing against the Ravens Boring!!!!
What is the deal with the NFL playing one season a year wow pretty boring. They also have two different leauge which is the American Leauge and the National Leauge, it is kinda dumb. While in Futbol you have many different leauges, championship, and a lot of Cups. The World Cup(Where each country has a chance to represent their country in Futbol competition), is so big and each 4 years they have a different country to play all the matches. You don't see that in Football.
So all I am saying is to know your favorite sport's history and maybe the reason you might not understand the excitement of futbol is because your not passionated about sports. In Futbol games the crowd sings, dances, celebrates, and fight eventually because it's more than just a game it's deeper than that. Instead of Football games where everybody just cheers without even knowing what happend and saying great job guys totally great.

Thanks Edgar, I’m glad you spent two sentences on meaningless ditca before stating a fact. Yes,‘futbol’ is what the rest of the world knows the U.S. game of ‘soccer’ as… Very good!

Ohh, okay honey… Did the bully take your lunch money and steal your bike again today? How did you know they just punt the ball back and forth, back and forth, back and forth? I think you figured this whole game out! Way to go sport… Actually, my recollection was that “futbol” was popular in the early 1900’s, and because it was too girly, they mad some changes to it, and those changes evolved into FOOTBALL, and rather than change the name of the manly sport, Americans changed the name of the less-manly sport!(That less-manly sport is now known as ‘soccer’)

I have never refuted that soccer was popular, but I don’t adhere to ad populum arguments. It wasn’t long ago that communism was the most popular form of government. Does that make it good? If so, you should have been at Tiananmen Square on 4 June 1989 to get run over by some commie tanks.

No actually it is the fact that nobody scores that sucks ass… Texans v. Ravens really wasn’t all that bad. But watching a bunch of grown men run around and fake getting injuried in soccer matches is just gay…

Seriously, how old are you? Can you please write a grammatically correct sentence? If not, at least back up your “points” with facts other than “it is kinda [sic] dumb” and “wow pretty boring”.

Don’t see that in football? I guess you haven’t heard of the IFAF, have you?(International Federation of American Football). Well, don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of the IFAF WorldCup. American’s just found out about this event in 2007 even though it has been around since 1999. However, when Americans found out that other countries were playing their favorite sport they decided to participate. It seems Japan has dominated for YEARS, however, in 2007, the US, for the first time, entered and WON THE WHOLE THING!( http://www.ifaf.info/ )

Holy-hell, that sounds like a reproduction of the Broadway classic “Grease”…. I think you’re all gay for re-enacting “grease” at each event. Let me guess, you play a girl in the event? At least in American Football we don’t dance an sing like fairies…

There is a reason why soccer is not called ‘football’ in America…soccer sucks. American football is far better and far superior than the world’s so-called most popular sport, which for some reason is also called ‘football.’ If this is confusing to you don’t worry, Americans already have it figured out.
American sports fans decided to call this ridiculous sport ‘soccer’ a long time ago, and gave the term 'football' to a far better, more appealing sport.
I am not writing this to offend anyone. The fact is that soccer is boring and it simply makes no sense. The goal is bigger than a two-car garage, but yet nothing happens for 86 minutes! Guys are running (and walking) all over this massive field, yet nothing ever happens.
Most Americans view soccer as just a big game of keep away. Why the rest of the world continues to play this sport is beyond comprehension. I will always fail to understand what makes soccer so great and so fun to watch. Soccer fans shout at me ‘you just don’t understand.’ I agree.
I don’t understand how a sport can have an ‘offsides’ penalty when that is the only way a team can have an offensive advantage.
I don’t understand why professional athletes can’t put a round ball in a goal the size of Rhode Island.
I don’t understand how anyone can get excited about one goal being scored during 86 minutes of play.
I don’t understand why soccer players are so fragile. One minute they are being hauled off on a stretcher and ten minutes later the same guy is scoring a break-away goal!
I don’t understand how 100,000 fans can start a fire and riot after a 1-0 contest. Maybe they looked elsewhere to cure their boredom.
I don’t understand how European soccer fans in this day and age can yell racial slurs to black athletes. It is also horrible to see FIFA not do a damn thing about it.
I don't understand how people can get hyped-up about a sport that regularly has 0-0 ties!
I don’t understand why David Beckham has to look like a girl.
I've played both over 12 years. You must be retarded

Interesting how my posts have disappearing. I guess Cinco Ono is the one who can't hack it.
