I've watched grade school and high school games for 12 years now. You get the parents on the sidelines yelling "Boot it" "just kick it"

Many kids can't pass a soccer ball to their teammates feet. They pass the ball and the teammate has to run to get it.

Youth soccer in the U.S. is pretty sad.
I have been watching soccer in the US for many years and I concur with CQ 100%.

Another thing is that American TV sponsor don't want soccer in this country. It's much easier to put commercials in baseball or football.

Soccer will never be big in the U.S.
