| Soccer Board|| Is US soccer gaining respect abroad faster than here in the states? - cwil177 on 7/2/14 at 9:47 am|
I want to put this question up for debate. I really expected most of the world to write us off, but it seems that the US is getting near universal praise from countries around the world for how we played the beautiful game this cup. That said, it seems as if fans here in the US are far more critical...
| Soccer Board|| This is why the US currently can't compete with the world's best - cwil177 on 7/1/14 at 7:44 pm|
Because we don't have the ability to produce technical players like the Hollands, Frances, Spains, and Uruguays of the world.
Please stop feeding into the belief that if only Adrian Peterson had chosen soccer we would be world beaters. With our current setup we would have a team full of Eddie Jo...

I went to the Gold Cup final at the Rose Bowl in 2011. It was US vs Mexico. Before this experience, I didn't really "get" the hatred so many US fans had towards El Tri and their fans. This is an account from another US fan who was at that game:

The obvious point of both is to hurt an opponent. One has the potential to end someone's career, while the other does not. I don't condone either, but just found it interesting that this biting incident (rightfully) provokes so much outrage while Marquez's attempts to injure opponents flies mostly u...
