FWIW, when soccer was introduced to my youth leagues, a buddy said "Hey, dude, let's play soccer."    My response was "**** that. I not playing pussyass ******* soccer."    Probably called him a queer or something.   You could do that in the 70s before the left decided it was a "hurtful" word and pussified 'merica.

The league makes decisions to make it more profitable.

The teams are all part of the same company in essence.

So what's the liberal end game swamp? What's the point of operation soccer indoctrination?

To change the basic fabric of America.

To take us from Baseball and Apple Pie to Soccer and Tofu.

To take the things like football and baseball that are rooted in family and tradition and move us towards a more global society.

To take us away from aggressive go get um "We are #1" to a more "Spaceship Earth" mentality.

I think soccer is a more aggressive game than baseball. My son's little league doesn't even keep score. The soccer league does. Those kids are hardcore.

And their is the Irony.

As they made baseball less agressive and more "Social" Soccer is becoming more cutthroat and commercial.

They killed our sport and we are absorbing theirs!

They???

Who's they?

I wonder who is behind the conspiracy that's made basketball so popular in the rest of the world since the late 80s, early 90s.  Because, you know, a country's sporting interests don't change without a devious plot.

He could tell you who is responsible, but then he would have to kill you.

Basketball was played and the kids saw it being played and had heros based on the sports.

Lets go ask 100 kids playing basketball in Europe who their favorite player is. Bet they will all have some.

Lets ask 100 kids playing soccer in America who their favortie soccer player is. Would they all even have one?

Why are kids playing a game with little fan support and no heros to emulate?

Sometimes it's the simple answer. Not the convoluted and retarded one.
