    Ya gotta love right-wing whackos:

    With Team USA suddenly in the round of 16, and World Cup fever allegedly sweeping the nation that football forgot, the American right has sprung into action. Determined to preserve American exceptionalism against a rising tide of baguette-munching ball-juggling pinko Europhile hippy surrender-communism, Ann Coulter has come to the rescue: "Any growing interest in soccer," she wrote to widespread amusement, "can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay."

    Her reasons for hating football are manifold, and typically hilarious – chiefly, the suspiciously popular game with the round ball seems to show all the key indicators of socialism. The New York Times likes it. It's foreign. Foreigners like it. Obama likes it. It is even, somehow, "like the metric system". For arch conservatives like Coulter, the culture wars never stop, and the sudden spike in interest in the World Cup is just the latest assault on The American Way, accompanying the barrages of promiscuity, multiculturalism, Islam, R'n'B, and trains: "The same people trying to push soccer on Americans are the ones demanding that we love HBO's Girls, light-rail, Beyonce and Hillary Clinton."

    According to Ann Coulter, the "foreign" game of soccer (called football around the rest of the world) is not violent enough for America. Its a pansy game as she refers to our American phrase "soccer moms are called that for a reason".

    Our American non contact Flag Football is comparable to world cup

    A pansy game indeed, like some of our own. When I was at school in Britain, girls played "netball"; not boys. See, even the Brits knew that "Basketball is What Boys Do During the Men's Wrestling Season."

    Ann Coulter is a troll. I don't know why anyone would bother listening to her speak unless they were eager to hear her particular brand of venom.

    However, I don't agree with you or that blond bimbo, we have plenty of non violent sports that are "less attractive" to the mass of violence lovers out there. At least with these kind of sports, brain or body injury isn't a common occurrence.

    I have played every one, at least once!

    Tennis
    Swimming
    Golf
    Bowling
    Soccer
    Flag football
    Badminton
    Volleyball
    Walleyball
    Bocce Ball
    Dodgeball
    Water Polo
    Skate Boarding
    Roller Skating
    In-Line Skating
    Ice Skating (I am and always will suck at this)
    I have not tried Racquetball in fear of getting hit with a rubber ball at 100mph, I bruise easy icon_lol.gif

    The "real football" or soccer is ruining America, howicon_question.gif If any sport is ruining America it is the tax grabbing, greedy NFL with all the free handouts they get at tax payer expense. Plus all the serious injuries several which have been found to be life threatening from years of playing this brutal, violent sport of American gridiron or what we call football. Soccer is greatly enhancing America and helping it join the world family of nations. Our embracing of soccer could also help make the world a safer place for the US. It is time for the US to get on the same sheet of music by making soccer one of its popular past times like most of the rest of the world. Our country would be much better off and we could even save several lives from unnecessary injury and death. These right wing extremists don't know what the hell they are talking about, they are best ignored.

    I thought that America as in Americans, were suppose to be a model of a humanity coming together as one!? I suspect that Ann Coulter's commentary is a very subtle multilevel expression of prejudice/racism!

    Ann Coulter gets paid a lot of money to piss people off. She says moronic things like this because it is easy to argue with but impossible to completely refute her. Thus engendering a 'debate' about a meaningless topic. We can feel better about ourselves by mocking her and calling her names. She laughs all the way to the bank. It's a win for all of us.

    If we just all ignored her maybe she'd go away. But I've been trying that with the Kardashians for years and they still haunt the tabloids in the grocery aisles.

    She's like people who are opposed to our going onto the metric system because it's unpatriotic and un-American.

    Most of my cars have been foreign. List:

    1964 VW - my first new car
    1971 Porsche 914
    1985 Nissan Sentra
    1987 Mazda 323
    When I lived in Fiji, I had two Toyotas of undetermined model year.
    2004 Mazda 3

    So, I've actually owned seven (7) foreign cars! Shocking!

    And my late parents had foreign cars. List:
    1953 Austin Healey 100
    1966 ? Japanese Opel
    1971 Mercedes 5000 Diesel

    And my brother had a 1964 Austin Healey Sprite

    So that's eleven (11) foreign cars in the family!

    It has a round ball that you can kick, and use your head too, but no hands are allowed; albeit some players have also used teeth; it's just not football. It's the game that pome David Beckon became famous for playing. You would not call it a manly sport.
