soccer is not more better than basketball
I hate soccer. It should not even qualify as a sport. Is tap dancing a sport? I rest my case. Basketball is awesome. Baseball is okay. Football is cool. Hokey is awesome. But lacrosse is the best sport by far. It's like football with weapons.
Read those please. If you are going to say anything bad about something at least use proper grammar. Otherwise, people will think you are a 11 year old who can't write proper sentences and what is hokey....seriously? stare
Thts the most stupid thing ever comparing soccer with basketball!!! Soccer is the national sport in almost every country, except here in the U.S.A. You guys don't give ******** up opinoins on tht, bc soccer originated wayyyyy before basketball! So for those noobs and haters... STFU! Soccer is more tough and better then any sport! In soccer you hav to strategize, My brother plays for Cisco, and I'm goin for Sereno! I would knoe!!! TeeHee...
Soccer has been a sport longer than any other sport the only reason the U.S. aren't so interested in it is because there are other sports in the U.S. that other countries don't do like basketball (which can't at all be compared to soccer). There are so many sports in the U.S. that people don't even care to watch a game because they think its just pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, but it takes skill and effort to even angle the ball directly into the blind spot of the goalie and its hard for the goalie too because they have to be able to risk hurting themselves by jumping or sliding possible into the metal pole or another player stepping on them. It's way more complicated than you might have thought. wink
Oh excuse me for not using correct grammar punctuation and spelling. Who are you, my mom? My teacher?...Anyway...Basketball is okay. I'm more into contact sports though. Like lacrosse. Do your research!!! Lacrosse originated in the Americas way before Christopher Columbus and every other settler came over here. It was played by nearly all of the tribes here. I believe it was the Iroquois tribe who first named it. It was called Baggataway or something like that. It had goals several hundred yards or sometimes several miles apart. Most times there were no boundaries. On each team there could have been several thousands of players. They fought to get the ball, made of deerskin usually, through the small goals. After the game over half of the team may have died or have been severely injured. This game was nicknamed the little brother of war. Thousands of years and rules later we have lacrosse. One of the oldest, but not the oldest, sports that exist. Soccer is, historically, one of the more modern sports we still play today. Soccer is just not intense enough for most. Think of lacrosse as a riot thrown with metal alloy poles around a hard rubber ball. That takes some pain tolerance, especially for the goalie, who has the hard rubber ball thrown at him/her at speeds close to or over 100 miles per hour. I would know being that I am freshman varsity goalie for my high school. The most pain a soccer player may endure is the constant stress on his cardiovascular system when he or she is running up and down the field. mrgreen
