[quote]But professional MLB players tend to be larger and heavier, no?[/quote] :lol: No, not really man. If this is where you're coming from in terms of knowledge of sports that aren't soccer, we're going to have a hard time arguing about this. Baseball, football, and the majority of basketba...

[quote]Imagining a situation in which the infrastructure is magically in place isn't a useful thought experiment for me.[/quote] I understand that man. I was arguing the hypothetical points to defend against people that think all we're missing is to get rid of pay for play. It will take much bett...

It's difficult to have an argument with you when you make a dumb point about the one famous world class athlete Jamaica has ever produced, use that dude as a reference point to disparage my point about the overall superiority of the American athlete, and then try to twist my points up. [quote]do...

[quote]yeah. we really beat the shite out of that Usain Bolt guy with our superior talent[/quote] Man, you sure got me on that one. So in the history of real, world class track athletes that have broken real records, about 99% have come from America. You choose the one extreme physical outlier and...

[quote]I literally cannot imagine the US with a functional youth system.[/quote] I know you can't buddy. I know you can't. Try this. Picture our football and basketball systems that consist of many of the best minds in world sports. Now make believe those sports didn't exist. Now make believe ...

[quote]And these athletes aren't targeted by any sport, since American sports tend to favor size especially. There are a bunch of 5'8 dudes who would be wonderful soccer players.[/quote] This is an old, dumb argument used by soccer fanboys that don't know much about the way other American sports ...

[quote]Because it's well known what works in soccer and what doesn't work in terms of technical development. We don't do what is right, or rather, only recently started doing what's right. We would waste the talent even if it were the no.1 sport in the US. There are multiple models that show you don...

[quote]not many football or basketball players have the body type for soccer. Soccer players generally aren't 6'8 300 lbs.[/quote] So you're saying offensive and defensive linemen wouldn't make great soccer players. [quote]Plus being great at soccer is much more cerebral and skillfull and work...

[quote]Simple the best athletes play other sports[/quote] If the question is why aren't we dominating the rest of the world, then this is the answer. But if the question is why aren't we as good as many of these tiny countries with less people, money & resources, the answer to the question i...

re: Bale tipped to Manchester United? - mynamebowl
Not sure if serious my friend so excuse me if I didn’t get the sarcasm. Martial & Rashford aren’t in the same galaxy as Gareth Bale. Assuming he can have better luck going forward with injuries, Bale would be plugged into Mourinho’s lineup immediately and play every week for United. ...

Kit Sponsorship Question - mynamebowl
Will there come a time when kit sponsors aren’t highlighted on the front of every shirt in world football? I assume the reason club football has adopted the tradition of the sponsor company’s logo being the largest, most visible part of the shirt is for maximum sponsorship $$$ but you would thin...

re: Europa and Champions league draw - mynamebowl
[quote]If Roma has De Rossi, Nainggolan and Strootman all healthy it's certainly going to be quite a different sort of challenge in the midfield than what Liverpool has likely faced so far.[/quote] You have a point. But Liverpool just beat City 5-1 over two legs with a midfield rotation of Hender...
