I love how people play a game of fake sports(GD, HBD, HD) and complain about wrestling being a fake sport. I once had a buddy tell me that wrestling was just like a soap opera. I laughed at him. This same guy admitted that he watched Dawsons Creek. I told him the only difference between the 2 was that wrestling was a soap opera for men. I'm not a huge wrestling fan, but I do watch it every now and then and do keep up with whats going on. I find it ignorant that anyone would put it down. If you don't like it because it's fake, then you must not enjoy watching movies. Or did you guys not realize that those are fake too? Yeah, believe it or not, there isn't a guy in Gotham City running around in a suit saving people from the Joker.
And yes, I really like soccer too. I play every weekend. I hated soccer for the first 34 years of my life, but then my buddy talked me into playing and I instantly fell in love with the sport. I don't really know much about the pro's, but I do enjoy watching them. Some of the stuff they can do is amazing. Anyone that doesn't like soccer just doesn't understand the game, like I once did. Really, go play a pickup game and I guaranty you'll have a good time. Unless you just aren't athletic at all. Then I could somewhat understand.
Finally, psap, how can you get upset with someone putting down soccer and then turn around and call baseball a snooze fest? Baseball is a great game. Some games can get boring, but how can you call baseball a snooze fest? Is it because of the low scores? If that's the case, then soccer should be labeled that as well. I think one of the reasons people don't like soccer is because it is so hard to score. It's a lot like baseball in my opinion. They are both very strategic games.
