Get the fuck out of here OP. If your an american and like soccer more than football your a square. Soccer is a fucking pussy sport made of skinny weaklings who fake the shit out of everything.
OP just doesn't undesrtand football and gets shit on in every conversation and can't participate when his friends are talking about sports. Football players are some of the most badass, athletic people on the planet. Its not just repetitive run and throw over and over again. If you took the time to watch and appreciate the game you would understand everything that goes into making a succesful play and how hard it really is. Football is more like chess move after move. Plus the people who play it are absolute beasts. Any football player could play soccer if they tried because soccer just involves running around all the time with minimal hitting. Not to mention they would destroy anyone in their path.
