Soccer is the most corrupt sport in the world. It's full of cheaters, fixed games, crooked officials, divers and fakers.
And I'm not even going to get into the fact that the majority of games are extremely boring. And yet, the Brits love the game for some reason and that's fine. But why do you have to come on here and insult American football with your weak "why is it called football when you use your hands?" argument?
Soccer has a "throw" in. Why do you call it football when there is a "throw" in? How can a game be decided with a "hand" ball like when Thierry Henry cheated against Ireland and in the last World Cup with the Argentinian? There are criticisms on both sides.
Live and let live. I'm Canadian and ice hockey is the fastest, toughest, most exciting sport in the world bar none. You Brits don't play it too well but that doesn't mean I hate you. Why can't we just all get along and enjoy our sports without insulting the others?

Please don't come on here and pontificate about corruption in Association Football, and then tell us you follow Ice Hockey. That sport also has corruption problems to deal with:-
