You watch muaythai/boxing? Who are you favourites? Who do you think is GOAT? I don't see many boxing fans on here, and even less MT fans...

Unfortunately for some reason Soccer players act like such little bitchy cunts..
They flop and flail all over the place trying to make the ref call a foul... It really is disgusting and pathetic... That is seriously the only reason I hate it.
May seem wierd to hate a sport because of that one aspect but god damn..... these guys flop SO MUCH!! Lamest fucken sport ever because the men who play it are little bitches... not all of them of course.. But come on we have all seen the collections of vids and highlights...
If you get fouled or knocked down.... GET UP YOU LITTLE PUSSY! Jump UP oFF ThE gROUND AND RESUME pLAY LIKE A FUCKEN MAN!!!
Really ? that is the depth or your arguments Please don't embarrass your self any further
Your arguments is really remarkable cleansed of any insight or knowledge of the sport whatsoever, and i don't even follow soccer but that is obvious from the get go
Do I really need more depth to my argument...? I don't claim to have any insight on that sport other then the fact that I have attempted to watch it plenty of times... Especially when the world cup comes on because I can basically appreciate the skill it takes to compete in any sport... and good sporting competition is fun to watch.
Flailing around like a ninny every time someone smacks you... or even worse... when someone isn't even close to touching you is disgusting and really does turn me off the sport.... I don't need to explain anything past that... other people clearly share the view.
I understand perfectly WHY they do that... It gives them an advantage if the other team gets a foul... DUH... That just makes it even more lame and pathetic...
I even made sure I prefaced my views by saying it requires lots of Athleticism and skill to play it properly....
The fact remains that flailing is more prevalent in soccer then any other sport I have witnessed.
In conclusion... go fuck yourself... I am not embarrassed by expressing my views. (which are clearly accurate)
Edit: and yes, you can (loosely...very loosely) compare it to some stuff you see in MMA (fighters complaining to refs wanting to get stood up, or pretending a nut shot was worse then it really was, or saying you got poked in the eye)... BUT THAT STUFF IS LAME TOO! Where is the fucking honor in that!? Seriously fuck that shit.... I will immediately be turned off a fighter if I see behavior like that...

Let me explain.
Now, I've played soccer competitively in the past, and play some recreational ball from time to time now. And Dana is wrong-- it takes plenty of skill and athleticism. You have to have a hell of a gas tank to run around that massive field for 90 minutes without shifts.
That being said, soccer has a big image problem. Soccer culture needs to change if he wants to truly catch on in North America, because in both United States and Canada, the ethos valued in sports is what I call "warrior's honour", that is, you strive to be tough and honourable. You strive to win, and are expected to play hurt or sacrifice your body for your team.
Think of American football players playing with wrapped ankles. Hockey players playing without teeth, or broken noses.
Soccer (football) is lacking in that kind of warriors honour in certain countries. The way it is played in England, for example, or even in the U.S. MLS league, is not so bad. But in Europe and in other places... the diving, the faking, the dramatic over-reaction to tiny amounts of contact is common and endemic.
That kind of fakery is entirely repulsive to North American fans. And why this satirical commercial seems so true and funny:

Yes there ARE a bunch of videos online that show soccer players going down , faking injuries ...to get an advantage. But it happens in EVERY SPORT. There's a whole bunch of flops in the NBA as well. I dont see any "Basketball players are pussies" arguments though
Shit, even in CONTACT sports, where you're SUPPOSED to get hit, people still fake shit to get the upper hand. B.Hopkins in Boxing, and J.Koscheck in MMA. Face it, flops happen in every sport. It's dirty, it's disgusting, it's sad...but "soccer" isnt the only sport that has it.
Soccer is one of the sports you need the most talent and skill. Especially if you compare to MMA? there is no comparison... In MMA if you're 20 and you train for 3-5 years, you are world class. In soccer if you start training at 20 you'll never get anywhere because you're already 15 years behind everyone else. We have athletes in MMA that started training at 30+ and became world champions. In soccer the level of skill and talent is so high that if you don't start training professionally at 5-10 years old then you have no chance.
