This game me a chuckle. So in America people think football/basketball draw the best athletes? In the rest of the world it would be the opposite.
Soccer is the dumbest sport ever created. Everything around you, all of human kind's greatest achievements have been built with our hands. Its what separates us from animals. Yet here is a sport that says "no no, you cant use your hands." And...our heads are our most precious body part (after our reproductive organs of course) and here is a sport that says "yes, you can use your head as a bat and hit the ball with your head." You cringe every time you watch a corner kick, because there is the possibility that your loved one could get a concussion, or worse, die.
Soccer is essentially just kick and chase. It is laughable when people talk about "strategy" and "structure" with soccer. All it is, even at the professional level, is dudes kicking a ball and chasing it.
Want to know a better sport? Distance running. Nuff said.
