    I don't think of myself as an ignorant American, but when it comes to the World Cup though, man, I have a hard time faking concern. I don't care. And I think it is an ugly trophy too. And come on! How can any sport with a score of nothing/nothing be considered entertaining? I just don't get it.

    It's a sport that grows on you . I know JP will insert some reference to my boys playing the game but its like chess on grass ? Some people well never get it but to the few that do , beautiful sport .

    Sorry my reference was meant for the North American sport fan .

    i have the same sentiment as you. in the united states soccer just isn't popular for some reason. playing fifa is fun though.

    Look, you take our sports..like football.. and call it soccer, you take our game of rugby and call it football..you take out game of rounders and call it baseball.. so, if you haven't anything useful to say, then STFU...

    nah...just kidding m8..you have your right to freedom of expression, just use it criticising your own sports..oh but you can't, as you haven't invented any of your own yet...

    .. I was forgetting the dodge ball, your goal keeper plays that I believe..

    Edit: PS. I don't really "care" about the world cup, ReaLifePixel...

    You don't have to like it. If you don't like it don't watch it. Or, better yet, go to the effort of making a thread on an interweb forum to express your apathy of it.

    1. It is absolutely nothing like chess on grass. Chess is a batle simulation, where players each take a turn to move a piece and pieces are removed from the board as they are "taken". That is one of the worst analogies I have ever heard.

    2. "to the few that do" what the fuck does that mean. Football is the World's sport and is played and watched by hundreds of millions of viewers, all over the World. Over a billion people will watch the World cup final. How in the name of fuck is that "the few that do".

    You Americans are so parochial it sickens everyone else. Association football is a much bigger game than any of the sports, specifically designed to be advert friendly, that you play / watch.
