A tie was considered a win because Obama turned down the watermelon offered to him and asserted himself into forcing the brisish to let america take the win

um, titania, hockey and baseball are actually played all around the world, hockey in canada, russia, and plenty european countries, and baseball is played in more asian countries than american. its time to take a look at the world from a better perspective instead of being a self righteous prick. also, learn english if your going to support your country.

i just remembered how much i drating hate all you retarded americans who still insist your backward sport is the "real" football.

morons, if your going to obsess on a sport at least read up on the history.

our "soccer" is the grandaddy of your "football" and you wouldn`t have it otherwise.

face facts people, your "football" "hockey" "baseball" is basically non existent in the rest of the world because its poo. you just cant see it because your all fat retarded mean persons.

lol and im half american half english. lets see if you can guess which more "civilised" country i pick to be associated with?

I hate folks who feel everything sports wise was developed by Americans. Football in the majority of the world is what we Americans call Soccer. Thus it is football, and yes it is soccer here. So you figure out what they call American football. Soccer doesn`t go that well here due to the lack of commercial time for advertising to make money off of it. There`s not a rest break every so many minutes like in American Football.

the only difference being that of how serious each is played. football being variable as football in general covers pro and random playing in a field and soccer being serious as its proffesional

your all wrong about football and soccer!
i see half calling it football and refusing to call it soccer and visa versa

football is the sport itself (the act of kicking the ball around and such to score goals) and soccer is the abbreviation of the word association football which is the proffesional sport of football

both football and soccer are the same

Britain is not the same thing as England. Britain is the island that contains England, Wales and Scotland. Our country is actually called "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland", but "The United Kingdom" for short, or "Britain" (if innacurately, as that doesn`t technically include Northern Ireland).

It can be confusing, but simply remember this: calling all British people "English" is like calling all Americans New-Yorkers.

In the group stages of the World Cup teams collect points: Win-2, Tie-1 (each)& Lose-0. When a country in put in a group with a much stronger team and they have no hopes of winning, like in this case. The best the weeker team can hope for is a tie to collect a few points.

TxT: Coming from a fellow resident of the US, that comment was terrible. You know what else we have? Terrible fans. Sure we have the occasional Raiders fan who will just go all out for their team, but if you go to an average (american) football game, do you know what you see? A bunch of people sitting around and cheering for touchdowns. Our soccer games are even worse. It`s all stats and no spirit.

Sometimes I wonder, what if we cared? Not just the few friends I have that religiously follow a firm and got up at 5:00 am to go watch this, but all of us? Thankfully this is the most popular the world cup has been in the US, but we`re a long way off. It`s a sad thing indeed when the best many can muster up currently is, "our team blows and we tied you, lol"

I think the whole "it`s such a good `win` because we`re so bad at the sport" argument is really flawed.
Either the USA tied because they are actually good at the sport, in which case it shouldn`t be so suprising or special, or that they managed to tie out of sheer luck, and really, what is to celebrate about that?
If it`s the first one, then I feel really sorry for all the US football players who have to put up with their lack of support from their country.

Hey, something I was finally motivated to create an IAB account over!

The headline is a reference to a famous headline in the Harvard Crimson, Harvard`s school newspaper. In the 1968 football game between Harvard and Yale, Harvard completed an amazing comeback, scoring 16 point in the final minute against undefeated Yale. The game ended in a 29-29 tie, but due to the great comeback that spoiled Yale`s perfect season, it was considered a de facto victory; the next day, the Crimson`s banner headline famously read "Harvard Beats Yale, 29-29".

Learn your sports history, IAB!

In this case, I think calling it a victory for the US is an exaggeration, but then again, it is the Post. Considering the injuries to England`s squad, the US did have a realistic shot at winning going in, but were generally outplayed. OTOH, the US is better than people are giving them credit for in this forum, and are favored to beat Slovenia and Algeria in their next two games and

The headline is TRYING to be a little sarcastic. Its the New York Post, it`s what they always do.

They`re making a clear statement that anyone who knows anything here understands: The US was a big underdog. Coming out of that game with a tie was an obvious victory, considering it was assumed by most it would be a loss.
If there are some people out there who have such a narrow mind that they can`t see how a tie in one game can be a victory in the big picture, I pity them.

Jwhalerfan, why were there 100 people watching the game in a bar chanting USA USA in freaking Kansas City yesterday? And in towns across America? You may think America liking other sports more than soccer means it doesn`t care about soccer, But a hell of a lot more people are watching the World Cup than your precious Stanley Cup. Don`t see too much hockey on the front pages of newpapers do you?

Zerocyde, calm the hell down.

This headline is pretty stupid. Just accept that. I don`t care how much of an underdog a team is, saying "we won!" when you in fact did not is ridiculous.

Especially when the tie wasn`t really thanks to their incredible skills, but rather an error made by the other team.

Technically, you didn`t score the goal, the goalie did.

Scotland was cheering the USA on last night and the laugh that went up when Beckhams face appeared after the USA scored was deafening.

Its probably the only time other than the 08 election when it was socially acceptable to chant USA USA USA anywhere in Europe.

You drating serious dude? You`re gonna go live in a world where a win is a win? That`s what you`re going to say to me?

No one is saying we won the game.
No one is saying a win is a tie.
No one is saying a tie is a win.
No one is saying a win isn`t a win.
No one is saying a tie isn`t a tie.

Now is where you reply with something like "UR DUM ZEROCYDE A WIN ISN`T A TIE!" And how the hell does me and meeting my life goals have anything to do with this discussion?

Zerocyde, way to lower the bar for yourself.

Meanwhile, I`m gonna live in a reality where a win is a win. See how well just barely meeting your goals will get you in life, guy.

"but you still haven`t explained how a tie is a win."

Good drating god, seriously?

A win isn`t a tie. Us scoring a goal in the drating WORLD CUP is a win. The paper saying "Usa wins 1-1!" is basically just a sarcastic way of saying "Yay! Usa did kinda good in soccer for once!"

I mean, two drating inches down it blatantly states that we TIED. You would think that would have been your first clue that the paper didn`t actually think we won the game!

"Presumably it`s a win because the concept of the USA scoring a goal in the world cup is so unreal to them"

Don`t kid, that`s pretty much it. Us scoring even one goal against a behemoth in the game such as England is just awesome to us. It most certainly is "win." :p

Zerocyde, you like flapping your gums, but you still haven`t explained how a tie is a win. If you can explain it, maybe I`ll understand the way the Cup works and go with the flow.

And don`t give me that `US is a weaker team and weren`t expected to do this well` BS.

I kid, I kid. Although to be honest I think it`s more a matter of our goalkeeper being crap than the American striker being good (the team has improved over the years though).

I can`t believe how many people in this thread are actually stupid enough to think that the paper is trying to say that USA won the game. Even some mods!

Then again, with the "wittiness" of your average daily link caption I never really expected a huge brain trust behind the gears, lol.

Now opening discussion about how Robert Green deserves to be castrated. Anyone who is unaware of who Robert Green should not be able to have an opinion on the 1-1 `victory`

I`m looking at you, Americans

It was a win for the US because England was heavily favored. Therefore anything better then a loss is considered a win.

Back in the 1990 world cup, Ireland drew all three group games. The general concensus was we had lost 0-0 against the Egyptians, drew 1-1 with Holland and beat England 1-1.

If you can`t understand how it was a win for USA then you are probably too thick to have it explained to you.

Because the US were big underdogs and was supposed to lose, so a tie is a positive outcome, or a win.

this is a WIN because the US sucks so badly at this sport that to make it that far is a HUGE WIN.

Like when we beat the Russians at hockey at the olympics 20 years ago. Still pumped about that. LOL
