Talking's cheap, m8. What did your team do? Better yet, how far is your team gonna go in the cup? Actions, not words.

Did I say anything about talent? Skill? Ability to win?

Nope, I just said they're pussies

Hey, if the Argentinians can still be mad about the Falklands (Las Malvinas) then so can I.

I really don't get it. Standing for something you believe, nay, know to be yours (please don't start a debate, it'll get really boring really fast) makes you a pussy? Just wow.
#107 to #106 - xxmemosxx (06/12/2014) [-]
As infuriating as that sentence is... I will stop myself from having a debate but it's not their defending of the Falklands that makes them pussies, just their football.

To be fair you're having a half kilo (1pound) ball blasted at you anywhere between 90 to 140 miles an hour

I've yet to hear of a player experienced enough to not feel a third ball being added.

when i was a 12 year old weakling, all the older kids (most of them were roughly 18 years old) used to put me as a goalkeeper while playing soccer, only that we didn't have two posts, but two piles of rocks. i virtually had to defend 2 meters of space which were the goal. normally, most of the guys used to kick really hard and normally most of those shots landed in my puffy nutsack. my face right now

It was known as football way back when it was rugby over here. The rules morphed and the forward pass was allowed. Now it's just passing, rushing, and kicking. But as all things in history, the name stuck.
User avatar #45 to #44 - sketchE (06/12/2014) [-]
way back when the name originated everything was called football. thats where the name soccer came from too. they called it assocciaton football. at the time kids were adding er to the end of names. so rugby was rugger and since you cant call it asser it became soccer

User avatar #132 to #82 - dagreatmax (06/12/2014) [-]
except that in football most players are pussies that when they get tapped or touched somewhere they fake being hit in the face or stomach
#161 to #132 - plaguehammer (06/12/2014) [-]
they're not pussies, but they do overdo it when they get "hurt" but I can tell you from personnal experience that just a light tap with studs hurts like ****
User avatar #177 to #161 - dagreatmax (06/12/2014) [-]
a light tap... Like not a slap or anything but just a touch on the shoulder. I've seen one get a high five and then fake getting hit in the face.
#190 to #177 - plaguehammer (06/12/2014) [-]
that's not being a pussy. that's cheating. very different.

first of all, stop being easily offended, acting like a whiny little bitch. its my opinion.
second, as far as i'm concerned, a game that is long as **** with no timeouts & ends 0-0 is DUMB AS **** . so **** what YOU are sayin.
third, soccer is boring. awesome fanbase...hella team pride...worldwide scale...but boring as **** . it is what it is. anytime you have to plead your case about SOCCE, its always ''the score is 0-0, but look at the intricacies of those moves. AW POETRY IN MOTION."
User avatar #62 to #33 - ultimateasshole ONLINE (06/12/2014) [-]
Its called a football because the original ball was foot long(12 inches) now the ball is only 11 inches.

Wat een pessimisme.
User avatar #212 to #147 - lotengo (06/17/2014) [-]
Snap je nu waarom ik zei dat jullie niet te veel moeten verwachten.
Ik hoor die Belgen al maanden roepen dat ze ons voorbij zijn, nou zie je waar jullie staan. Lullige 2-1 winst in de slotfase tegen de nummer 22 van de fifa ranglijst.

Nederland heeft op dit moment geen echte talenten van het aller hoogste niveau, we zitten in een dip. Maar door ervaring, creativiteit met het systeem en spel-intelligentie, weten wij toch nog wat te bereiken.

Jullie hebben geluk met de loting, en geluk dat Vertonghen geen rood kreeg. Maar als na de poulfase Duitsland wacht is dat geluk wel op.

gefeliciteerd met de 3 punten.
User avatar #213 to #212 - dubstoiz (06/17/2014) [-]
Deze post is gewoon te troll. Ervaring, creativiteit en spel-intelligentie?
Jullie staan trouwens achter ons in de ranglijst. Heb je gezien hoe die verdediging met soms wel 6 man achter de bal bleef? Wij hebben geen enkele kans tegen gekregen, behalve die domme fout.

Je hebt wel gelijk dat deze overwinning te moeilijk was maar momenteel hebben we evenveel punten als de Nederlanders.

Afgeweken bal en dan binnen, dat is pech hebben denk ik dan. Jammer want er zat meer in tegen de nummer 5 van de wereld.
Proficiat met jullie moeilijke overwinning tegen costa rica, nummer 28.
User avatar #214 to #213 - lotengo (06/17/2014) [-]
Tegen fcking Algerije ja.
Nederland was zwak in de openingsfase maar België was de hele eerste helft waardeloos. Positiespel leek nergens op.
tactisch en qua positionering zijn wij veel verder. Daarom halen wij een hoger rendement uit ons materiaal.

Om maar te zwijgen over de finale tegen Spanje waar ze alles toesmijten en liever de spaanse jongens omverschoppen dan eens in de aanval te gaan.
User avatar #196 to #183 - lotengo (06/13/2014) [-]
Boehoe de Jong maakte een overtreding in de finale.
Maar wel knap dat jij weet wat een finale is. Hebben jullie eigenlijk al ooit in de WK geschiedenis een finale gehaald?
Veel plezier tegen Korea en Algarije. Daarna komt Duitsland of Porugal en kunnen ze weer terug naar huis, de finale op TV kijken.
User avatar #182 to #174 - dubstoiz (06/12/2014) [-]
Oranje is wel beter natuurlijk. Kijk naar het Ek in '12 waar ze bijna gelijk speelden tegen Denemarken! Helaas geen enkel punt uit de groepsfase kunnen halen.
User avatar #195 to #182 - lotengo (06/13/2014) [-]
En waar waren jullie?
User avatar #181 to #174 - dubstoiz (06/12/2014) [-]
Ik heb gehoord dat Van Gaal tegen Spanje gaat spelen met 5 verdedigers?
Mooi voetbal bij oranje!
User avatar #199 to #181 - lotengo (06/14/2014) [-]
Ben je nu mad fag? Ben je nu mad?
******* galavoorstelling met 5 verdedigers.
User avatar #200 to #199 - dubstoiz (06/14/2014) [-]
Dat was onverwacht!
Galavoorstelling zou ik niet zeggen hoor. Als je Casillas ziet keepen, alsje ziet hoe de Spaanse verdediging staat te slapen en als je ziet hoe het middenveld niet ziet spelen zoals hoort dan weet elke gemiddelde voetbalkenner wel beter.
Nu hoor je me niet zeggen dat ze onverdiend wonnen. Die eerste goal was geen penalty en die goal van Van Persie was enig mooi. Maar de andere doelpunten waren geen individueel talent van Nederland, eerder slecht gespeeld van Spanje.

Heb je De Jong gezien in de eerste helft? Als die geen rode kaart verdient dan weet ik niet wat wel. En die andere donkere jongen die als een echte theaterspeler op de grond gaat na een "kopstoot" mocht van mij ook zeker geel krijgen. En die fout van Sneijder in de eerste helt. En Guzman die meerdere keren de rode kaart verdient...
En je reactie is eerder amusant. Ik neem aan dat je 13 bent en gefrustreerd?
User avatar #201 to #200 - lotengo (06/14/2014) [-]
Lol he mad. Spanje speelde slecht omdat het ineens overrompelt was. Over die speler die de 'kopstoot' tegen kreeg ben ik het met je eens. Dat is Bruno Martins Indi van Feyenoord,imo het grootste bewijs dat negers van apen afstammen. Hoop dat hij er nie meer inkomt, al hebben we weinig alternatief.

De 1e goal van robben straalde van individuele klasse. Wist een matige voorzet goed aan te nemen en te kappen.
van persie ramde hem nog een keer op de lat.
User avatar #202 to #201 - dubstoiz (06/14/2014) [-]
Van Persie schoot op de lat in buitenspel, maar niet gefloten.
En jij bent hier diegene die 'mad' is want je reageert met volkomen nutteloos commentaar op een foto van de rode duivels.
User avatar #203 to #202 - lotengo (06/14/2014) [-]

we know how important it is. we just don't fully understand it. that being said, i don't even like "american" sports anymore. it's all boring to me so i don't understand americans enthusiasm either.

See it like a religion. If you're learned from the moment you're born that there is a god and you need to worship him; thats what you'll do. When I was youngh i got thought wich football club to support. And for me, football became a religion. My whole life is about football.
User avatar #187 to #186 - armenhart (06/12/2014) [-]
whatever floats your boat man. i was raised in a very christian household and now im an atheist so the religion analogy doesn't hold very well with me. i'm fine with people liking sports that much but i don't like when they say "omg you don't like it? what's wrong with you? how do you not know all the stats about player x?" i'm into formula 1 racing and i don't expect anyone to know anything about it. i'm NOT saying you shove it into people's faces, i'm just saying i don't like when other people do that.
User avatar #188 to #186 - armenhart (06/12/2014) [-]
also, i think it's really dumb when people get mad that americans call it soccer. we call it something else than you. who cares? it doesn't change the value of it in any way. people act like calling it soccer devalues and disgraces the entire sport. why? it doesn't matter.

No, it's rugby for people smart enough to wear padding.

FYI they hit MUCH harder in american football because of the pads and its more entertaining for it.

Also the rules and the way rugby is played is just ******* retarded.

Technically, american football is called that way, since the ball is a foot long. So, technically both are correct.

I'm going to post this as anon since I imagine I might drown in a sea of red by butt hurt eurofags, but this whole thing about what to call soccer or football (nfl) is stupid. We in the US are a different country we don't have to do things the way it's done in Europe and vice versa. Hell that's pretty much the reason the US is here because we didn't want to be the same lol. America has started focusing more on soccer here in the states (we weren't doing to bad last I heard) and Europe is clearly interested in the NFL because the Dallas Cowboys and the Jaguars have a game scheduled in the U.K. and there have been talks of expanding the league to Europe.

TL;DR we're different countries we do things differently can't we just respect that and get along?

And honestly i prefer it to soccer.
a number of reasons but the main one would be that I ******* hate the fan base the British spew out.
I agree with you posting as anon so I'm not raped in a sea of 12 year old British vortex fan hugging twats.

It's because many atheletes instead choose to play popularized sports such as basketball and football.

Whereas its a different set of skills for the different sports, the popular sports absorb more atheletes. Atheletic ability is latent then honed to suit a sport in my opinion.

Also I'm using footsoccerball instead of soccer/foot-ball from now on.

I found it funny.

Believe it or not, a joke does not have to be funny to you to be funny to someone else. I prefer soccer over hockey, but I still chuckled over the dramatic contrast between the two pictures. I don't see any reason those pictures should insult anybody; if you know that both sports are dangerous, then you know it's just a silly joke. Only reason to be upset is if you're actually insecure about it for some odd reason.
User avatar #128 to #125 - skarrer (06/12/2014) [-]
Im not insecure about football,and I also happen to understand the meaning of jokes.I just dont really appreciate how much hate football gets from people who say its a pussies sport.Maybe it doesnt require as much physicality as other sports,but it certainly requires more skill,and I'm proud about football for that,and what physacality and bravery there is in the sport I like to defend so people who have probablly never watched a full game of it talking down on every supporter of it and player,even though only a small percentage dive and such. Maybe I overreacted to this particular picture,but thats because of the problem as a whole.
Thanks for not resorting to insults,appreciate it.
User avatar #131 to #128 - penileburglar (06/12/2014) [-]
You're very welcome. But it is worth noting that if you overreacted to this particular pictures because of the problem as a whole, that's the very definition about being insecure--insecurity means you project problems that exist onto situations that don't contain them. (I.E., if you're insecure about your weight, you assume anyone who looks at you is judging you for it.) I'm not saying you lose sleep over it at night, just pointing out that that is the very definition of insecurity.

Regardless, I agree that soccer's a great game (I grew up in Germany with a brother who played it semi-professionally, so it's hard not to.) And with how often his shins, knees, ankles, and head were ****** up, I'm definitely not arguing against the fact that it's a very hard, physical sport. Hockey has more contact, but also a hell of a lot more padding.

Instead of showing 5 guys holding their hands close to their body (so they dont concede any free kick), protecting themselves from a ball going close to 100 mph without any protection, show the same scenario. Show how players like Terry, Vidic or Kompany who always throw themselves infront of the ball (minus Kompany vs Real Madrid when he for some reason moved away from the ball) when they can.

that's so because touching the ball with your hand is an offense in football, unless you wrap your hand directly around your body

#94 to #35 - billburr (06/12/2014) [-]
They don't stop it with their hands usually, it's with the body. Keeping in mind that a hockey puck hurts a lot more than a soccer ball does, this is pretty impressive.
Soccer is a great sport and there are definitely tough players but it is objectively much less tough than hockey, and not because of hand-ball rules. It's because people hit eachother (often with fists), move faster, and dive onto the ice to stop a 100 mph shot.
They're very different sports, can't we both get along as fans of these great sports and find something we truly agree on; riots.
User avatar #129 to #94 - penileburglar (06/12/2014) [-]
A sport is as tough as how hard you train for it.

Hockey matches may be rougher on the body, but if you're going to try to get people to get along, you need to understand that as long both sports have no skill ceiling--I.E. they're complex and physical enough to have neither a perfect player nor a perfect game be possible--then you need to understand that no sport is 'tougher' than another, unless your only definition for being 'tough' is how often you get hit.
#136 to #129 - billburr (06/12/2014) [-]
Toughness is very much-so about how often you get hit, and how hard you get hit. I don't mean difficult, I don't mean skilled, I mean tough.
Skating aside, if the average hockey player took up soccer he would be slower and worse than the soccer players; an average soccer player who took up hockey would be dead.
I like the NBA more than the NFL, but I don't pretend the NBA is tougher. But they're both tougher than soccer
User avatar #137 to #136 - penileburglar (06/12/2014) [-]
If that's your only definition, then cheerleading and gymnastics are both hella tougher than hockey, as they both have higher injury rates.

You mean most dangerous. 'Tough' can mean a lot of other things, and if you use it as a blanket term while trying to 'unite' people, you're only going to create more arguments.
#139 to #137 - billburr (06/12/2014) [-]
Yes, tough can mean many things but using context we can find meaning pretty easy. Maybe it starts arguments because you are bad at understanding context.
Also, toughness is not about how many injuries you get. "I'm so tough that I get hurt while cheerleading". Think about it. I'm not going to explain every faucet of toughness as a concept, there are many factors which you observe during the sport and if you watch sports at all you should know what I mean.
And you chose deliberately misleading examples because, as a whole, women have a higher rate of injury in sport and those are female dominated sports. Female dominated sports specifically geared towards small, light, young women.
User avatar #146 to #139 - penileburglar (06/12/2014) [-]
In that case, horseback riding is also a tougher sport, and that one is male-dominated. And gymnastics is not a female-dominated sport, actually, there are a great deal of male gymnasts and their injury rates are the same as females.

You're just assuming everyone is going to define it the same was as you just to please your stubbornness, and that is not the case. Context does not work in an argument like 'which sport is tougher' because the definition of what makes it 'tough' is exactly what you're going to end up arguing about. You might say hockey is tougher because they hit each other more, I might say cheerleader is tougher because it's more painful and there are more injuries--'context' does not resolve that argument.

If you're too stubborn to choose your words carefully and just insist that everyone should come to the same conclusions as you and abide by your definitions, then you will never actually be able to mediate any arguments like the one you attempted to. 'Tough' is not a word that can be objectively defined, but 'dangerous' is. Your definition of 'context' is akin to a sixth-grader learning what a 'context clue' is--'context' is still as subjective as anything else.
#204 to #146 - billburr (06/15/2014) [-]
You are bad at arguing with adults.
Here's how the argument went.
Me: Hockey is tougher because of all the hitting
you: Toughness is not about hitting
me: I consider toughness to be largely about hitting
you: Cheerleaders are tough too because they get hurt more.

Try to look for resolution, not loopholes. And don't be such a dick about it. I'm done though, peace out. Enjoy getting mad on the internet
User avatar #205 to #204 - penileburglar (06/16/2014) [-]
If you're not joking and honestly think that's what the argument about, it does a lot to explain why you're missing the point altogether. It's about understanding the difference between words that are objectively defined and words that are subjectively defined, and knowing when to avoid using the latter if you want to avoid arguments, as you originally claimed that you did (but very clearly proved that you did not.)

And I haven't expressed any anger whatsoever--you, however, just called me a dick and left because you couldn't handle being disagreed with. You're just projecting at this point.
#206 to #205 - billburr (06/16/2014) [-]
I decided to return. I just think you seem like you're taking this a bit too seriously but I will reiterate and I'm not trying to be a dick here or anything.
Obviously I know that words have subjective meanings. Other than nouns, almost all of them are defined, as I said before, by their context.
My post was not designed to start an argument but when you decided to take me up on one I figured " **** it". I didn't say everyone has to agree with what tough means, I explained what I meant by it and said that hockey is clearly tougher. What I meant by tough also happens to be what 90% of sports fans mean when they say a sport is tough.
But yes, I honestly did think that was what the argument was about because arguing about whether words are subjective is silly. But I have a question for you, do you honestly believe that cheerleading is a tougher sport than hockey?
And why should I have to choose my words so carefully, I simply do not have time to write ridiculously long comments like this every time I want to post. Writing every caveat, assumption, and definition is slow and produces ****** writing. Which again, is why I'm such a big fan of context as opposed to legalistic-type writing that removes the need for it.
I mean you obviously knew what I meant or else you wouldn't have argued against it.
Anyways, happy commenting dude, figured I clear that up.
User avatar #207 to #206 - penileburglar (06/16/2014) [-]
I don't see where you think you speak for 90% of sports fans. Myself, and certainly many others, think any sport is as tough as how hard you train for it. Just because you think that was does not mean that '90% of sports fans' do; tough can mean a LOT of things, and it's very common to argue over it.

Your first statement basically read "Hey, let's not argue about which sport is tougher... Because hockey is tougher and this is why. So stop arguing." Whereas if you truly didn't want to argue, you would not have made a subjective, inflammatory statement like that. No one said you have to bust out a legal dictionary, but "Hey, let's not argue. They're both great sports, it's just that hockey players take a lot more punishment because it's a much heavier-contact sport."

You did not provide any context to how you define the word 'tough,' you simply used the word and assumed that other people would define it the same way you did. That's not how context works, and that's *exactly* what people argue over, so I fail to see how you thought your comment would in any way stop arguing.

As for the cheerleading-vs-hockey thing, yes, I think that if equal amounts of effort are being put in, cheer-leading is tougher than hockey. They go through incredibly painful deep-muscle stretching on a regular basis, which the body does not get used to like it gets used to impact, and they have a significantly higher injury and mortality rate than hockey. They simply go through more pain and injury then a hockey player; it doesn't matter whether an opposing player caused the injury or you / your teammates caused it. Does it hurt *less* just because you did it to yourself instead of an opposing player doing it to you?

So, basically, no, you don't *HAVE* to choose your words better. I don't care how you define them, I only argued with you because of the stark contrast between what you *said* you wanted and what you were actually accomplishing.
#208 to #207 - billburr (06/16/2014) [-]
It's apparent that you cannot end this argument. I have said several times that I understood what you said, and I explained what I meant several times. I don't claim to speak for 90% of sports fans, I have just spoken to a lot of them. And I've watched a lot of commentary and sports myself and what I said is what they mean about 90% of the time.
I came back because I thought I could explain to you how useless this conversation has been. In fact I could not.
My first statement read, and I paraphrase: "Hockey is tougher, not because of handball rules, but because people hit eachother harder and more frequently"
Several posts later I said I don't want to argue because you are arguing pointlessly.
And I did provide context in the first post, you missed it. From then on I just straight up said what I meant by tough and you still argued. It's cool if you conceptualize toughness differently than me, but my conceptualization of it is pretty in line with that of ESPN, sports centre and 90% of people I've talked to.
Once again, I hope you learn to seek resolution in arguments rather than victory. If you seek resolution then one of us might change our minds, otherwise both parties dig in. I tried to say what I meant by tough, if I've done a bad job explaining it then sorry man but it was the best I could do
User avatar #209 to #208 - penileburglar (06/16/2014) [-]
It's apparent you can't end it either. Arguing takes two people, and you're the only one who constantly claims to have a problem with it, I don't.

I have no idea what 'commentary' you're watching, because I have not seen it defined that way '90% of the time.' You obviously do think your opinion is shared by 90%, but with no way to even begin to prove that, you are just speaking for people for whom you have no right to speak for. I watch the same ESPN you do, and do not see 'tough' get defined that way '90% of the time.' You're just projecting your definition of it onto others.

And no, you did not give any context. Saying "Hockey is tougher and this is why" is not context to the definition of tough. It's just saying that you feel it IS tougher for those reasons. 'Tough' could still be defined many different ways, in which case I could still argue with you in many different ways--you still don't grasp what context is or how it works.

And again, 'resolution rather than victory' is silly, as it's about neither. You resolve arguments when there are stakes, of which this argument has none, so there's nothing to resolve. The same thing goes for winning an argument--there are no stakes, there's nothing to win. Arguing is at its best for sharing ideas and education and at its worst for expressing anger, but when there are no stakes, there is neither resolution nor victory to be had.
#210 to #209 - billburr (06/16/2014) [-]
I like to resolve arguments because I have a bizarre desire for closure. This is also the reason I've been replying to your comments.
By the way, here is ESPN's list of the toughest sports. Hockey is number 2, boxing is number one. sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/sportSkills
That right there is the ESPN I've been watching. "That was a tough hit" "That's why hockey's one of the toughest sports in the world" "They say rugby's a lot tougher than football but look at that hit right there". That is the commentary I hear on ESPN.

But like I've said 40 times, I understood everything you've said. Some of it is reasonable, most of it is somebody looking to argue, but I do understand it and I think I've made that clear. You have not addressed any of the points I made except for a few you have hen-pecked to poke holes in. So I don't know if you understand me or not but 800000000 characters later I don't really care.
So run on cockthief, run with the wind
User avatar #211 to #210 - penileburglar (06/16/2014) [-]
You like to 'resolve' arguments because your pride won't let you accept anything but the last word. When you feel like it's going your way, you're kind and apologetic, and when you feel like it's not, you go right back to resorting to insults and claiming to leave--a cycle you've now gone through twice and will probably come back and go through again. And the article you've provided actually disproves your own definition... They very clearly show a ton of different factors that go into which sport is 'tougher,' including flexibility and endurance, rather than a simple definition like 'they get hit more and harder, so it must be tougher.' And the fact that they've created that list, and there are tons of articles debating it included several that are linked right on that page, proves that all of that is *still* heavily contested.
