As a red-blooded patriotic american I hate soccer. Yet I can't ignore that its still the most watched sport in the world, while great exciting sports like NFL and MLB aren't. Someone explain to me: how can such a boring, sissy, unappealing sport be watched by people overseas...is it because foreigners like sissy sports and like being bored? Why don't they want to watch exciting sports like the NFL, MLB and NBA?

the same way a lotta people feel about bonds & mcguire for use of drugs...
the same goes for maradonna... dude was hopped up on the juice. finally caught up with him in 94 (if u don't know what happened in 94 don't reply to this).
& for that douche that asked if i was old enough to ronaldo... CLEARLY, i wouldn't have made a blind statement. obviously i seen him play there. i've been watching football as long as i can remember.
@ ronaldo not being top 5 though...
he's only the greatest goal scorer in world cup history & 3 time footballer of the year. i guess he's a bum & should be run outta town.
he's even lighting it up for corinthians (slight injury right this very sec though).
maradonna is top 5 yes, but i hate that dude...
top 5: whichever order u wanna put it...

wow, this is a bad thread. soccer is a great sport. Just cause you think its boring does not mean in general that it is boring. sigh cant wait to see all these non soccer fans jump on the ban wagon once the world cup starts.

i noticed that the people that dislike soccer the MOST are black people
and personally i think its because (especially in the hood) they a.ssociate soccer with hispanics
or "mesicans" or whatever so they never even take the time to appreciate the sport...they rather follow football since thats all they hear about (and basketball) you dont even hear their parents say "oh hey you could be the next......_______" well there aint no bonafied black soccer superstar and im talking about American......


and i blame all you ignorant black people that refuse to appreciate soccer for the U.Ss soccer woahs all this time....imagine if black people played soccer? and the U.S National team was full of black players? they have what like 3 now....the reason they suck is because of the wack white guys that play for them.....they NEED BLACK PLAYERS
s**t black players are like secret weapons why do you think EEEEVERY team has some?

and why do you think white people in the U.S are so racist yet they applaud black players on their natonal team? why? because they know how big an advantage having them on their team is......

if Soccer was a popular a sport as say football or basketball the U.S would dominate....

and dont even come at me with the racist bulls**t
what i speak is the truth..
black people are more physically gifted than non blacks

DEAL WITH IT.....

What the f**k?


I want to punch you in the face for being so stupid.


If black people are so good why aren't Ghana or any of the African nations winning world cups year on year, they do not have the skill or training, best team in the world right now only has 1 black player.

I don't think these people realise that soccer is far more about skill than it is physical specimens.

You didn't see the Lions game the other day?

League is fantastic at the moment. The NRL in particular. The skill level is amazing. As for Union, Super 14 is still as entertaining as ever.

Rugby Union f**ked up when they gave the 2011 World Cup to NZ. They especially f**ked up with the plan to give the 2015 World Cup to England.

After France it should have gone straight to Japan. They've been begging for it for years. The u20 world cup the other week has been a great success in Japan with crowds upwards of 20,000 wherever.

Except "a lotta people" don't feel any sort of "way" towards Maradona for drug use; football fans certainly don't. The only drug use of his that was prolonged was his use of cocaine. He didn't make a career off the back of traces of s**t. You're clearly ignorant about the situation, Maradona's lifestyle & ability in general.

So what age are you? I want to know how vividly you remember 96-97. You know, the greatest season you've ever seen. Also, it was Ronaldo's "last season" at Barcelona. As opposed to his first. And only.

"i've been watching football as long as i can remember" - doesn't mean s**t. Did you watch every game of Barcelona's 96-97 season? If yes, then how many other seasons have you witnessed so comprehensively that you have an ample selection of players (see: thousands upon thousands) to choose from, so that it can be made apparent how much, or likely little, your opinion matters, despite how much you may wish to repeat it in upper case.

And the name is Maradona; Diego Armando Maradona. Not some "Maradonna" that you keep using. Learn his name before you speak of him.

i like watching baseball in a stadium, but on TV, its pretty much the most boring thing happening.

american football, is alright, fairly exciting, but they stop play every few seconds and swap teams out every few minutes. and everyone is wearing pads and helmets like they are afraid of getting hurt.

soccer is constant play, rarely stops, and a lot more artful than american football. more like basketball how you get individual flair in play. more exciting to watch on TV than american football or baseball. i am also tempted to say it is more athletic, but that is easily debatable.
