That's the truth.

Not true at all. I played in high school and college. If we got up 4-0 the coach would have us back off the attack and work on passing and control. If we did score again there wouldn't be celebrating. In a tournament where score matters we'd keep scoring but not celebrating each time. This conversation would be had at any level and either gender because the team displayed what is traditionally considered bad sportsmanship within this sport.

I'm just going by previous real life professional soccer examples and personal experience.

How about hockey which other countries play and has speed,.contact, defense, scoring, and the goals are not the size of the.side of a barn. Oh and most important anytime another player gets close the.dude(s) do not grab hamstring and look for a yellow card while crying shrug

Yes, basketball is a fast-paced game kids can be expected to play and not get bored out of their minds. It also doesn't require wide-open green spaces and so is a perfect city game. I always thought, growing up, that only in America was soccer mostly a mass of idiots swarming around the ball in a blob with a couple sentient people who aren't complete potatoes playing something of a position and observing, to some extent, the offsides rule.

Boy was I wrong. I've seen enough pickup soccer in Latin America to know it's a f----n trainwreck as bad as any American soccer game, with all the ballhogging issues you can have in basketball.

Basketball is a much better pickup game. You can have a decent three on three half court game and run a legit game with five. Any soccer game with six to ten people is going to be GHEYEEEE

Football plays like a traffic jam if you play organized pad football and you're under 13, because it's the option and everyone except like two people is blocking or tackling and there's no passing or actual offensive scheme. Otherwise, it hasn't been a traffic jam for years now, especially at the pro level. It's much more passing-oriented.

Sandlot football, at least in Florida, isn't a traffic jam at all; it's essentially all passing unless you have some sort of pass rush rule.

Finally, men's soccer players are....generally turbo douches. The legit red carpet hair styling, the flopping, the woman pop star names. It's figure skating on grass basically.


Good and fair points. Especially the last one about the hair styles, etc. 'Figure skating on grass' does sound beautiful and poetic though. Also, kinda hints to the beautiful game's pinnacle of play - poetry in motion. Lot of idiots out there, lot of idiots out there in all sports...But there are still players who transcend - Messi, Zidane, Iniesta, and Ronaldinho are recent ones in football who spring to mind. Federer in Tennis, OK...I'm running out now, but you get the idea.


The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.

Apparently the head cuntbag of team cuntbag is claiming sexism for any criticism of scoring 13 goals and celebrating every single one of them like they just won the second most irrelevant championship in all of sports...WNBA Championship with a stranglehold on first place.

It's a game for the weak minded and simpletons. Soccer fans are like cats and laser pointers.

I've tried watching soccer, but I can't. The amount of flopping is beyond atrocious. With the level of contact that sends players to the ground writhing in pain, I'm surprised they aren't flopping when they contact the ball with their feet.


Si se puede!

Nope

I didn't see this match so can't directly comment. It's rough when you get a blowout going because you can't sub off many players so.. you have to seriously rein it in. Which they should have done. This would have been a monstrous statistical outlier on the men's side as well.



List of major blowouts in men's soccer.

Lots of celebrating from the players.

And the fans loved it.

https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2016/05/the-10-biggest-blowouts-in-international-soccer.html


roflmao those are all either World Cup qualifiers or a Copa America game - during WWII

the qualifier stage is bloodsport compared to the actual Cup, but there were a few of those that likely involved copious payoffs



Whatever the case , most of those were from the 1980s to the 2000s and the teams kept on celebrating.


And it's still bad sportmanship. Going off of what fanatic sports fans and overpayed athletes think? Most fans love it because they are graduated hacks at said sport and are making up for their lack of skill/talent/work ethic by being the most obnoxious fan possible. Of course they like bad sportmanship, it's right in their wheelhouse.

I appreciate great talent and well played sports, and professional sports blows goats because it reveals the absolute worst parts of sports.
