    I think it's because they just don't understand it. I can see that being a reasonable answer because I'm not a soccer fan which is a world wide popular sport and probably the reason why I don't like soccer is because I don't understand it. To me it looks like a bunch of guys running wildly all over the field trying to kick it in the goal net of their opponent. I'm sure there's more strategy than that but I really don't care.

    Europeans always shy away from a noble conflict. What more can I say?

    I don't want to go off on a rant here but,....

    I'd like to quote Hank Hill "soccer is a game played by european women while their men were away playing football".
    I'm British myself been in the states for 13 yrs I was forced to play soccer through secondary school, hated it .
    Now rugby, thats a great game

    to Bill in sd,
    are you including the U.K. in the "Europeans always shy away from a noble conflict. " cuz they love to kick **** just as much as the USA just that they are poorer

    rugbys a great game if u want broken bones and concussions and the chance of dying. I might save your little statement and use it as a example of an idiot.

    In rugger there are less injuries than football because your not allowed to hit anybody who doesn't have the ball and they wear padding now. I could say your statement was made in ignorance so lets leave it at that.

    Very true & most of us Brits don't think we're European anyway
    Nothing is foolproof to a talented fool
