while I've got nothing against Americans who watch and love the game.. there are a lot of people over there who make the game look like a joke. Most popular sport in the world too might I add to justify the last sentence.
It's the same over here people call it soccer, annoys me especially when I read the word "soccer" in the newspaper..
oh and what cracked me up is that they spelled, in a popular newspaper, "Tottenham" "Tottingham" over here. australia and america aren't, in the near future, gonna be footballing nations.
if nfl (god such a boring sport :/) became popular in England it'd be exactly the same.. just americans conceiving english people as idiots.
Well now you're just arguing semantics. Does it anger you when the French refer to Germany as "Allemagne"?
Sounds like a lot of you guys just got your butt hurt than your only real sport is Soccer. What else you got over there? Polo? Badminton? Rugby is chill...but a dead sport.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy watching soccer quite much. But sounds like you guys need some new competition. Get some hockey going over there.
