impressions on my mind coasting through life's journey...

Why Americans hate soccer?

While the rest of the World is glued to their television sets, it seems that soccer IS catching up in the US, judging by the television ratings . Univision on Sunday logged the highest viewership ever for a sporting event in US Spanish-language broadcast history. More than 5.4 million people tuned in to see Mexico beat Iran.
But the impression is that in general they are being dragged into it kicking and screaming and the majortiy do not want to admit some are beginning to like the game. There are tons of blogs and articles out there about why americans hate soccer. Here a forum to discuss this issue, which throws some light of on why they think that way - from "it being a game for only girls" to "there is not enough contact" or simply that "they were raised to ignore it".

Patrix has a great rebuttal to a self-confessed "soccer hater".
