Re: Only mental problems can explain Americans inability to appreciate soccer
it's the fans, we all tried to love soccer starting in the seventies, but then we to got see footage of all the fans of the game and how crazy and violent they are, that was it end of the courtship and from that point on we all had our suspicions confirmed that every other nation on the planet(most of whom love soccer) were evil and dangerous and not to be trusted

Pro sport worship exists, in all cultures, for the explicit purpose of keeping people dumbed down, in a perpetual state of arrested development

Why spend your free time doing something useful, when you could just watch grown men kick a ball around? Hell, for that matter, why not use your useless sport of choice as a cheap excuse to insult people who don't agree with you

Re: Only mental problems can explain Americans inability to appreciate soccer
I am an American. I love America. I know that Americans aren't stupid. So, how do you explain that Americans don't appreciate soccer? I'm thinking it's a mental problem. Though I don't necessarily blame us. Maybe the problem is mass hysteria. Basically the media hypnosis plot line for U.S. involves ignorance of soccer.

Also, don't reply to tell me what word soccer is called in your country. I am an American. We speak American. If American isn't English that's because America is not an English colony. Plus, it's just a word, who cares? I never got mad at a southerner referring to soda as pop. In fact, I find it charming.

The mental problem might be expecting other people to share your point of view.

sports fans usually have this feeling of "knowing" their teams / players.

Soccer is boring. Takes all dam day to see a goal. The penalty cards are gay as hell. The fans can't control themselves and you claim the Americans are mental. LMAO

TPTB have been trying to push soccer down our throats for years now. Forcing it on our kids in school, creating that obnoxious class of women called "soccer moms". We don't like soccer. Let the rest of the world play.
