I love soccer, played organized club soccer for 8 years. American football is my favorite sport though, especially college.

It is true that soccer is the #1 sport in the world. It`s also true that it`s #1 because it is the cheapest sport. The equipment to play American Football is very expensive, so 2nd/3rd world countries could never field a large number of teams. Children grow up in most places across the world with very few sports to play, outside of soccer.

Just the equipment for 11 players on a US children`s football team can cost 3 to 5 thousand dollars (not including field costs, etc).

An organized children`s soccer team can pull the same thing off for much, much less money.

Rugby and Soccer are much easier to throw together for a game.

The goalie...going for the head-i you gett some goalies who can direct the ball like/better than rio or terry-(brilliant defenders who can head in goals from corners)-It`s not unheard of even for the goalies to run with the ball and get the winning cross in-(Peter Schmeichel)

``aqua, the only difference is that we have real athletes. You know, 6`2" 300 pounds, and can run 40 yards in 4.44 seconds. Rugby is how we played football as kids. Run around and dont get tackled, the only difference is that we would throw the ball``

You have obviously never seen rugby before, and probly dont even play american football yourself.

I agree with Schwabos, stick Habana on the field as running back, he`s awesome at foot skills so he`d dodge the tackles then speed down that field faster than hot poo off a greased shovel. Americans, I respect your love of your "Football", it is a demanding game that requires a lot of fitness and strength, but I still prefer Rugby and (the real) Football over it.

You really need to learn - NEVER TAKE THE GOALIE OUT OF THE GOAL! Beckham is proving what we Europeans knew all along: Americans really don`t know how to play football.

Although I have to admit they did well in the 2002 World Cup.

"Obviously, rugby players would easily beat am. football players at rugby, and vice versa."

I dunno, im sure there are AFL players that would dread the sight of Sebastian Chabal bearing down on them as a part of the defence and players like Bryan Habana or Joe Rokocoko would be fairly unstoppable as running backs... If they knew the rules.

Saying that is like saying the only difference is the protection. It`s just not true.

Obviously, rugby players would easily beat am. football players at rugby, and vice versa.

You can`t actually "pull the goalie" like in hockey...the goalie has to be on the field 100% of the time. He just moved way into the other team`s goal area, and couldn`t sprint the entire length of the field at the same speed as the ball. Durn.

Hey, you ever sat down and watched any/more than a couple MLS games? They are actually quite exciting. No less so than the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, and international games I watch. Yes, the players are more skilled in top European leagues, but the game is still quite entertaining. Based on the game alone and not its circumstances I would rather re-watch yesterday`s Chicago-NY MLS game than last week`s Champions League Final.

Soccer is not the king of sports. The only reason it is the most popular sport is because you dont need any equipment to play. Goal post? Those two trees. Ball? Roll up your clothes and kick it.
I have soccer as 3A.
1. American Football (europeans, give it a chance)
2. Basketball

Can`t use your hands in soccer.

yeah remus, in europe they sometimes have 3 or 4 tournies going, and teams are playing a good amount of games a week. soccer is so much hectic of a sport than most others, americans just, for some reason, don`t want to accept it. yet, we can sit through 9 innings of baseball...

kikij...Noel Whelan?

Theres a blast from the past if i ever saw one, if you throw in Lee Sharp and Darren Huckerby then we`re really talking 90`s lol

And US people, its kinda like basketball. You have a set number on the pitch/court at one time. Nothing stops them going wherever they like but since they have a different set of skills they naturally occupy one area. Its like Shaq shooting a 3, he can but it`s a very bad idea. Same with sending a keeper up for a corner. Voila

As for people asking if you can pull the keeper like in hockey, they don`t have roro substitutions in football, so while in theory you can sub the keeper for a striker, he wouldn`t be allowed back on again. It was a decent goal but I would hope most players could hit the goal from that distance, it`s not that difficult especially with the time he had

The goalie was in the opponents` box for the corner. It was a good strategy because his team was down one and they were in injury time, so they had nothing to lose and everything to gain from having an extra attacker in the box - Beckham`s goal was pretty but totally irrelevant to the game`s outcome.

yes, like hockey, you can bring the goalie off the pitch for another player OR have the goalie himself come all the way forward. In the final minutes if that happens, there is no one back to protect, other times I have seen it done and a defender left back alone.

The only real difference in hockey and soccer are some minor ruling (mostly equipment) and the size of the field. Indoor soccer is alot like hockey except that spectators can easily see the ball, same checking and rough play, plus indoor soccer is close to the same size field.

^^ Furpie, have to disagree with your taste on sports, but that`s fine. To answer your question:

Yes, the goalie can cross the midline. In fact, any player can go wherever they please, including off the pitch...

Legacy15 you berated me, yet you never answered any of my questions! Can you get an extra attacker in soccer (aka football if you are a soccer snob) by pulling the goalie? Is he allowed to cross the midline?

It was an empty net people. They took the goalie out so they can have 1 more player on the field that can play the ball and potentially score. Same thing with hockey.

Because it gives them another attacker in the dying moments of the match to (hopefully) bring the match to a draw, and either gain a point or bring the game into extra time. It was an all or nothing tactic and since they were leaving with nothing anyway, it was worth the risk.

It was in the last minute, so David Beckhams opposing team brung the goalie forward because they expect the referee to blow the whistle when L.A Galaxy clear the ball out but as you see here he took advantage of the goalie`s stupid action :-)
