Why is Soccer so popular?
« on: July 30, 2015, 11:54:21 AM »
 Soccer is the most popular sport on the planet. Why? I acknowledge the players are great athletes but the game is so fucking boring. I'm gonna quote a great man...




"Yeah Soccer, that's a real cute sport. Especially the way ya'll bounce that ball off yo head"

Almost no equipment needed
Can be done anywhere
Tipping point - all your friends are doing it so why not
Lots of money in it if you're successful

Being drunk I decided to resume this.
I usually dont give a fuck about watching football*(soccer) but played it in the past.
It's a cheap sport and if you think football*(soccer) players are some kind of pussies you're at the same time right and wrong.
Right about top end players being pussies..but if you ever played soccer outside Murica you'll mostly face butchers in the field.

American football is far more boring than “soccer”

   Soccer became popular for the same reasons basketball did. You need almost no equipment so it becomes the popular game in poor areas.
   For baseball, most every kid needs a glove and somebody has to have a bat of some kind and a ball.
Street football needs a lot of space to play so it’s tough to do in an urban area. (Check out the Bill Cosby routine on the subject) Street hockey needs hockey sticks, goals and pads for the goalie.
   What other sport for a bunch of kids is as inexpensive as soccer and basketball?
'cause justice is the one thing you should always find.

As someone with no skin in the game, this is a laughable statement.

Objectively false. Football players have a FAR higher rate of traumatic brain injury compared to rugby players. Football is empirically for harder men who can survive the constant high-energy contact, the prancing sissies get shunted off to rugby.

haha you talk shit. NFL players are all padded up and are constantly  getting a rest during plays on top of switching between offence and defence. Rugby is non for virtually 80 minutes of meathead smashing each other without faggot padding. They only reason head trauma comes into play is from  players helmets smashing into each other’s.

But IT, how hard could they honestly be hitting each other if they aren’t causing each other massive head trauma? CT scans don’t lie, bro!

Agreed. It's not a compliment by any means, but football is empirically verifiably the more brutal sport.

Bullshit , go watch the state of origin matches from the Aussie super league. NFL doesn’t have any close to that in brutality.
