Top Ten Reasons to Hate Soccer

Soccer is one of the most overrated sports of all time. It sucks, and these are reasons to hate it.

The Top Ten

1 More emphasis is put on Transfers than the game itself

But the soccer players are really hot though

Who gives two craps if (blank) player wants to go to Team A or Team B? Just watch the game an enjoy it. The sad thing is that you aren't a "real fan" if you don't enjoy wasting your evening away by watching manchildren on T.V. argue over which player should go to which team. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

2 Crazy fans who burn, pillage, and destroy property even if their team WINS

It's kinds sad to think that someone could pour their life savings into a resturant only to find out that some crazy soccer fans have destroyed it. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

3 It is human trafficking to 'buy' and 'sell' players

I'm not even a fan of soccer and I kind of find this an over-exaggeration of it's flaws. - Swellow

No it's not, they chose. - SoldierOfFortune

Just take this as you will. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

"Human trafficking? " Hyperbolic, much? Don't be absurd.

4 Fans who think they are intellectually superior because they watch soccer

I've noticed that it's actually very common for people who hate soccer to think they are intellectually superior to those who enjoy soccer. The best example of this is Ann Coulter.

5 Soccer players act like they're hurt when they're not

Hell no! - Sugarcubecorner

Normal People:
"Ouch, that hurt, but it's nothing." *Gets up and continues playing*

Soccer Player:
*Proceeds to roll around and cradle leg as if they'd been shot* - BlueTopazIceVanilla

6 A Colombian player was shot after he accidentally made a goal

I forget the year or the team he was playing against, but this happened. It's so sad that an innocent man's life was taken after he made a small mistake, meanwhile murderers, rapists, and thieves do not pay for their crimes. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

7 Age is valued over performance

Only really young people are taken in, instead of an older person with more endurance and experience. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

8 It takes forever for someone to score

Sorry, but I'm not wasting 90 minutes of my life. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

9 The clock counts up instead of down

How is this an argument - Not_A_Weeaboo

10 The women's league doesn't get as much attention as the men's league
