I'll watch soccer once it starts ruining the lives of all of its players due to brain damage and eventual bankruptcy

Was tempted to troll the poll and vote soccer but couldn't even pretend to advocate that on a comedy forum.

Watch Brazilian/Portuguese soccer, people literally kill each other

edit: Well maybe don't watch it but read about it

Soccer but I only watch it during things like the world cup which are fun, in my opinion. This is just my opinion and I don't mean to offend

I'm not a big fan of either one but I'd sooner watch American Football than Football/Soccer. Having said that, hockey is my fav sport.

I was looking up that ref that got beheaded because he made a "bad call" in a soccer game and i found a picture of his beheaded head and body, so that's cool. Thankfully the wikipedia article on the guy has him alive and with head attached

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death...C3%A3o_da_Silva

The guy made a call, then someone got in a serious fight with him and he stabbed them, which resulted in him being drawn and quartered and head-removed. people who are really invested in sports are cool people and aren't hosed up in the brain at all

The rest of the world simply doesnt deserve American Football. Period. Canada is cool so they get their own version.

They can keep watching a bunch of bitchmade fairies pass a ball back and forth while falling down at the slightest or literal non-existant physical contact. Go watch balet instead you loving losers.

Also if you like rugby/aussie rules thats cool because those are legit sports played by people who arent bitchmade.

Honestly I'd be way more interested in sports if it meant mascots completing a gauntlet of challenges that ended in the two remaining mascots fighting a cage match to the death.

I prefer NFL videogames over soccer videogames. I don't like the Madden series though so I only play games from since before EA got the exclusive license


NFL 2k on dreamcast is a great game

2k was so much better than madden shame ea got the exclusivity and just stopped giving a gently caress about any madden being even passably acceptable

Anymore, I almost prefer to watch soccer, momentum is the only reason I watch the NFL at all really.

for our european friends the butt fumble was when the defense first recovered, then returned for a touchdown, a ball fumbled by a grown man who ran his face directly into a butt

i dont know soccer rules did the goalie enable the offense to score somehow

any buttfumble equiv must be injurious embarrassing AND lead to the opponents score (being witnessed by dozens of millions on thanksgiving night optional)
