Default 10 reasons why soccer is better than football

http://community.foxsports.com/blogs..._than_football
10. Soccer is the original football




Before anyone ever took a pig and turned it into an odd shaped ball, people across the pond were kicking a ball and referring to it as football. And if you think about it, that makes sense. After all, you play the sport with your feet.

9. The world plays soccer, only Americans play football

Soccer is the most popular sport in every country…except the United States and Canada. Every country regards soccer as an important event, and a chance to represent one’s self in a dignified and professional way. Billions of people can’t be wrong.



8. Juggernaut in X-Men 3 is ex-professional soccer player


Vinnie Jones is an actor who is probably most famous for playing the Juggernaut in the film X-Men 3. What does this have to do with soccer, and why is it a big deal? Because often times, soccer players are looked upon as wimpy. Vinnie Jones it built like a truck, and he played soccer like that as well. In fact, when he played professionally in Europe, he was considered the team’s enforcer on the field, totally crushing opponents. In fact, he has been red carded (ejected) from games 12 times in his career, and was once given a yellow card (stern warning) only five seconds after the match started. If Jones proves anything, it’s that there are soccer players out there as tough as anyone in the NFL.

7. Soccer has the most attractive athletes

If a questionnaire was handed to every woman in the world which asked who the sexiest male athlete is, chances are that L.A. Galaxy stud David Beckham would dominate the list followed closely by Christian Ronaldo of Portugal. And the ladies who play soccer aren’t hurting anyone’s eyes either, with Mia Hamm and Heather Mitts. In fact, in 2004, Mitts was voted the sexiest female athlete, beating out the likes of Jennie Finch (softball) and Anna Kournikova (tennis). The thing about soccer is, it doesn’t drastically change a person’s appearance other than allowing them to be in top cardiovascular condition. So unlike football, you don’t have to put on pounds of muscle (or fat, depending on the position you play), and you don’t have to be freakishly tall. Soccer simply has regular guys and gals who are at the peak of their physical conditioning.

6. Game atmosphere is better


Football games can be fun to attend. Some fans will paint their face or make a funny sign. People can get obsessed with their teams, and it shows. But compared to soccer, football atmospheres are tame. Soccer has sections of fans called hooligans. These groups of like-minded ladies and gentlemen cheer their team on with outrageous enthusiasm. Often times they will have cannons, smoke flares, and drums. But the one thing that soccer fans do that really differentiates them from other fans is sing their team’s chants. It creates an intimate moment between the fans as they come together as a single, strong voice, to cheer their guys on to victory. It cannot be understated how much these chants create an unforgettable atmosphere when attending a soccer match.


5. Soccer players are more physically fit


In soccer, every man on the pitch (field) is in top physical conditioning. They go for 90 minutes or longer, running the entire time without any breaks. Football is 60 minutes. Theoretically, the players only play half the time since offenses and defenses change out. Furthermore, a play in football lasts around five to ten seconds. Once it’s finished, the players generally get at least 30 seconds to rest. However, by the fourth quarter of a football game, often times you can see fatigue hitting the players. While fatigue also sets in during a soccer match, the players still play, and the best players are strong until the very end.

4. Soccer takes more skill

Bouncing a ball with your hands is natural. Catching a ball with your hands is natural. Try catching a ball with only your chest, knee, or foot. It’s not so easy. That’s because controlling a ball with the feet is much more challenging as it is not a natural body movement. Therefore, it takes quite a lot of practice to be able to do even some of the more simple things in soccer, like passing and shooting properly. When you look at pro football player and you see some of the amazing things they do, it’s true that it would be difficult to replicate, like some of the crazy catches they make, but the fact is that it’s possible. However, trying to replicating some of the quick-footed juggles that pro soccer players do would be downright impossible, even for some seasoned, non-professional soccer players. The fact of the matter is, you could randomly take five guys from the office and go play a respectable game of basketball or football, but if five random guys tried to play soccer, it would get ugly really quickly.

3. Scoring holds more weight


When someone scores in football, it’s exciting, but many times it’s just business as usual. However, putting a point on the scoreboard is soccer is much harder to come by. Guys will get hacked, fouled, and shoved, and then they still have to have their wits about them enough to shoot. When a goal in scored is soccer, it’s cause for a celebration. But the reason doesn’t just lie in how uncommon scoring might be. It comes from the fact that when a loose ball is bouncing around in your team’s penalty area, your heart is pounding and your eyes are wide with anticipation. If the ball gets cleared, there’s a small respite as relief sets in. And that same wide-eyed anticipation grips you when your squad has set up a good scoring opportunity for themselves. It’s such a high level of tension that when they do score (or give up a goal), the emotional outburst is greater than it is for any other sport, period.

2. Soccer creates a positive sense of nationalism

Every four years the World Cup occurs. It’s an event that any country has the chance to play in, and it brings various cultures and peoples from around the world together, similar to the Olympics. First and foremost, on a worldwide basis, soccer is the most popular sport around. Fans will rally around their teams and the tolerance level for different cultures is widely accepted and celebrated. But the celebration does not stem from the between cultures differences, nor is it a battle against those differences. It’s a celebration of enjoying the same sport no matter what country a person hails from. Nothing illustrates this better than the events of the World Cup in Germany. The Ivory Coast was at war with itself. The government controlled the Southern part of the nation while the rebel faction held power in the North. The two sides had little to agree on or stop their fighting until their country qualified for the World Cup. The best team available was assembled, comprised of athletes from all over the country. The love for the sport of soccer caused the Ivory Coast to call a cease fire for the duration of World Cup so that the nation could celebrate as a whole on their team’s achievement.

1. For soccer, all you need is a ball and a patch of dirt


Soccer is the purest of sports because all you need is a ball. Sure, some grass or a flat piece of land helps, but it’s not necessarily a requirement. Just ask the kids in South America who play everyday on the streets. Soccer is as pure as sports get. You don’t need pads, you don’t need any equipment, you don’t need specialized fields, or anything else. You don’t even need shoes. All that is required is the ball, and maybe some imagination.

I remember when ABC created it's Superstars competion between different pro athletes. Kyle Rote Jr of the once upon a time NASL was the first winner. I don't remember if any other soccer players were invited.

Soccer is for girls. Or guys that aren't smart or man enough to play real football.

Dave you are a bit confused. Soccer is by far the no.1 sport in the world.

And to say that those football players have to be smart. They sure had me fooled.

For the most part they are very big men, but to say that they are smarter than soccer platers. :evil: !

Football you have to have plays and strategies. Soccer they just chase the ball around until it ends up in the other end of the field. They hardly ever score and their is no good hitting. Did I say it was for girls?

Too bad you don't know anything about Soccer. Soccer is a game of plays and strategies among the team and not just kicking a ball around.

No hitting in Soccer. Soccer fans want to see skill not hitting. 8)

Isn't soccer football? Or is football soccer?

Soccer is however the largest spectator sport in the world.

Having said that, I'm not really in to soccer, since I don't really understand it, and it seems to go at a slow pace. It seems much like hockey, and I don't watch much hockey either. Not picking on either sport, just not my cup of tea.

Soccer could also do without the brawling that takes place in the stands from time to time. Kinda gave it a bad rap a few years ago.

I must say (read brag) the University of Portland women's soccer team has done pretty well over the past few years!!

Dean, outside the US (soccer) is called called football. What they play in the NFL is called American footgall.

Soccer can ba as entertaining as any other sport and it takes a lot of stamina to play.

In football the players spend half the time bending over and showing their butts.

They run for a few seconds and then a timeout is called.

In soccer it's non stop action

Sometimes I watch football with my wife and I used to take my kids to see some high school football. However I never got into it and I love to watch soccer.

To the people who don't like soccer I say that is why I choose to live in a
free country where we have the right to make a choice.

Come on Dave your just showing the bias of an old HS QB. Maybe popped in the noggin a few too many times.

My alma mater has many times been national champion in men's soccer and have played some pretty sensational matches in the Saturday football stadium until they got their own 25K seat stadium.

Go Big Red

Anyone who thinks soccer is football is not from the US... and thereby has nothing to say about football... Soccer is a marathon run without an end and the most action is in the stands where everybody beats each other up... NOW that's a football game.

Kat I love those pictures.

But you probably should have included Cristiano Ronaldo for the ladies.
Mrs. TM likes Ronaldinho.

Kat, I had to show those pictures to Mrs. TM. She had never seen a soccer game before we met, but now she enjoys it. Of course with her background she is a bit partial to the Italian players.

When I was in junior high school, I played real football, ran track, and played basketball for the school's teams. During track season, in the eighth grade, it was track season and we had a track meet later in the evening. The "off season" boys were playing soccer with a kickball. I was bored and went to play with them. I was kicked in the right calf and it cramped up. I was helped to the gym and the coach checked me over. Then he promptly paddled my behind for getting out there and playing soccer when I should have been relaxing prior to the track meet. So... I agree with Dave. I hate soccer!

CQ, that'a great picture of your son. Maybe someday I will be able to see him play.

Mrs. TM loved the picture of the Italian players.

I don't know about that as it is difficult to get up there but what is important is that he loves playing and is enjoying every minute of it.
