Yet people still keep buying their games. Get a job and pay for your online pass like a good little ******* faggot.

You obviously dont know what his rant with EA is.

He does not really have an issue with DLC and prices (like most people have against EA)

He hates that EA buys over licenses of other games and starts publishing unfinished games with lots of glitches, rushed development and *********** storylines.
User avatar #60 to #33 - trollerofwindows ONLINE (05/14/2013) [-]
I'm not trying to undermine what his rant and hatred of EA is about, all i'm trying to do is make a reference to someone on the internet without the provocation of the masses to explain how, why, and when I was wrong

There's your first problem.

actually, FIFA is a great game
#91 to #87 - teenytinyspider (05/14/2013) [-]
I'm sure it is. I was just making a crack at EA Games. Seems to be the norm these days but after what I've heard, I can't blame anybody.
#120 to #1 - alexbrowning (05/14/2013) [-]
I believe the real first problem is simply EA
User avatar #12 to #1 - sketchE (05/14/2013) [-]
with enough spin and the ball hitting the goal post at the right angle this is very possible

I play as a goalkeeper for my schools soccer team i can confirm this is 100% legitimate.

The approach to the ball, being about 2 paces to the left and 5 paces back, is the optimal approach for maximum power and accuracy aiming for the top left.
The kickers left hip opens to the left making any shot other than to the left an awkward one.
The left foot is completely planted to the left before it rolls onto the toes, the keeper saw that plant and added it to the likelihood the shot would go left.
And of course the #1 thing to look for is where they kicker is looking, in the approach the kicker glances at the left post and then at the ball.


perhaps the most innacurate part of this is that the goalkeeper should not be completely centered. Most people have a dominant leg that they can dive faster and farther off of. The keeper should be farther from this side of the goal (maybe 4 -6 inches) to compensate for the weaker side.


a penalty kick at the professional level cannot be about reacting to the ball, the power put into the ball will make any reaction time too late. Instead it is a battle of minds on who can read their opponent better, in this case, the penalty kicker won.
#37 to #4 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
All of the things you describe is things penaltytakers use every time to manipulate where the goalkeeper thinks the shot is going. Scoring penalties on someone who tried to use just those tips wouldn't be very hard at all.

Silly americans thinking they know about football
User avatar #97 to #4 - steedawwg **User deleted account** (05/14/2013) [-]
Dude, it's a game called FIFA, there is no real life logic in that game.
#121 to #4 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
Goalkeepers aren't expected to save penalties. The pressure is all on the penalty taker. It's therefore a combination of luck / poor shooting if one is saved.
#6 to #4 - ColonelHansLanda (05/14/2013) [-]
The problem is the ball's defiance of physics not Carlos Tevez' run to the ball. Also I'm aware that the ball's movement could maybe be proved but it looks unnatural. Also, a little word to the wise, no one pays attention to someone's views on football when they call it soccer.
User avatar #10 to #6 - coolcalx (05/14/2013) [-]
the ball is spinning. that's not a defiance of physics, that's transfer of angular momentum into tangential kinetic energy.

see comment 8 for proof.
#140 to #10 - ColonelHansLanda (05/14/2013) [-]
refer to my statement where I just said "it could maybe be proved but it looks unnatural." I'm an engineer, I've studied motion.
#142 to #140 - ColonelHansLanda (05/16/2013) [-]
yes, well I'm studying engineering. That ball looks unnatural hence why it's been posted on here as a funny picture.

I'm an astrophysics student, so I've also studied motion. if you really are an engineer, you should know better than to make absolute statements such as stating the ball was defying physics.

User avatar #53 to #30 - meganinja (05/14/2013) [-]
When I was a kid, the goals were a lot smaller, so our team had this really fat kid who just had to stand in front of the goal and hardly ever move and it was almost impossible to score on him unless you had a good angle.

Are you American?

I think this explains why you Americans have produced such great goakeepers (Brad Friedel, Tim Howard, Brad Guzan, Kasey Keller to name just a few modern ones)
#17 to #15 - keeluall (05/14/2013) [-]
Neuer, Adler, Weidenfeller, Ter Stegen, Wiese. I'd vote for germany on this one
User avatar #18 to #17 - fukkendragonite (05/14/2013) [-]
I never said that they were the best at producing keepers haha. Germany are good for it too. But then Germany is much more of a footballing nation than America is, so that's why the American goalkeepers thing is so weird.
#20 to #18 - keeluall (05/14/2013) [-]
Well, they do have Donovan, Altidore and Dempsey for example but yeah, their goalkeepers are pretty good
User avatar #21 to #15 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
I think Tim Howard is a decent goalkeeper.
#66 to #15 - anon (05/14/2013) [-]
Americas goalkeepers are only OK none are top level. for a country of 400 million thats poor. Also spain produces better keepers. Casillas Reina Valdez De Gea etc.
User avatar #83 to #66 - fukkendragonite (05/14/2013) [-]
yeah, but as I said below, it's decent from a country like USA which isn't really a footballing nation.

same here, have you ever had one caught?

ever
User avatar #43 to #42 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Nope. I just made the sure goalkeepers I did it against had no idea who I was (I look more like a guy who powers them in the topcorner)
User avatar #44 to #43 - holeymoley (05/14/2013) [-]
not a bad idea, im no longer the penalty taker for my team, so i havent practiced as much.
User avatar #46 to #44 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Not that I am famous or anything.. but a lot of local clubs around here so there are teams who have classmates or colleagues in their team.
User avatar #49 to #46 - holeymoley (05/14/2013) [-]
im quite easy to describe since im one the only gingers in the league
User avatar #51 to #49 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
I did try a robona penalty once during goalkeeping practice on the new kid. Thought I was leftfooted.. too bad I hit the post. Cost me twenty push ups lol
User avatar #52 to #51 - holeymoley (05/14/2013) [-]
i fell over doing that
User avatar #56 to #52 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Keep practicing. I am born in Holland so we are kinda more technical-orientated than power and stamina and everything. I know it has something to do with it
User avatar #57 to #56 - holeymoley (05/14/2013) [-]
im english, we are crap at penalties
User avatar #61 to #57 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Hahaha I lived in Preston for a while. Played some football.. I definitely see a difference in football culture. English players weren't very technical. (Or it could've been a coincidence)
User avatar #62 to #61 - holeymoley (05/14/2013) [-]
nah we arent, we are more of a break / counter

the championship is probably the most competitive league in the world
User avatar #67 to #64 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Ever followed the Dutch one? Championship is exciting because of the play offs. Bottom of the Premier League is good too. Newcastle was in relegation trouble two days ago. But if they beat Arsenal on saturday they may finish closer to Europa League tickets than relegation
#72 to #67 - holeymoley (05/14/2013) [-]
i do watch the dutch league yeah, its really intense

So who do you support in England?

Ah yes. I am a big Brian Clough-adept haha. I support Stockport County and Newcastle haha

I'm English   
I don't like Football (or "Soccer" as you call it)   
I'm an American Football fan (Go Pats)   
At least call it by the name given to it by the people who invented it.   
We could just call American Football "American Rugby", but we don't/   
And before you say Americans invented American Football, it can be traced back to the American Colonial Era. Who colonised America (Or the New World as it was known as)? The British

User avatar #94 to #71 - schmitty (05/14/2013) [-]
But we do it call it the name given by the people who invented, just the rich people anyway. Soccer stems from "Association Football". The practice of adding the suffix "-er" to the ends of words actually comes from England, Oxford to be specific. So while the poorer classes called it "football" or "footy" the more wealthy classes, I assume to not be associated with the others, called it "assoccer" and eventually the "as" was dropped from the beginning of the word and it became "soccer".
User avatar #100 to #94 - chargrilledawesome (05/14/2013) [-]
Also, Soccer is the uncommon name that came after Football, coined by people who didn't invent it the sport.
User avatar #98 to #94 - chargrilledawesome (05/14/2013) [-]
98% of the time, anyone in Britain who calls it Soccer is a pretentious cunt.
User avatar #101 to #98 - schmitty (05/14/2013) [-]
Hence what I meant by "the richer people".

Although I thoroughly enjoy your positive opinion of football,
who the **** told you that only the English colonized America?
Sure the English tried colonizing America initially, but a majority of them died off,
along with many French, and plenty of Spanish too.., then there were African slaves needed, and also the Irish coming over, and eventually it was just a giant mixing pot of
just .. ******* everything..
Like...we have so many ethnicity's of ******* "white people" Polish, Italians, Greeks, ect..that we can't even keep the ethnicity's of them seperate..
I'm literally just a ******* white person over here..
Caucasian..
I don't even care.
Because I get to enjoy freedom to the max.
Have you ever even read such a wordy yank?

Also this would only count during a match.. not during a shoot out.
User avatar #99 to #23 - PedoBearsAcomin (05/14/2013) [-]
Yea it would
#24 to #23 - cobanger (05/14/2013) [-]
yes it would, if the ball crosses the line during a shootout after only one touch from the penalty taker then its a goal
User avatar #26 to #24 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
How about the rule with the dead elements? i.e. ball hits post and bar or post and goalkeeper before going in it doesn't count. I'm sure of it
#27 to #26 - cobanger (05/14/2013) [-]
so if the keeper gets a hand to it and it goes in it doesn't count? yep i've seen that happen heaps
User avatar #28 to #27 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
No I mean if the ball bounces back from the inside of the post, hits the goalkeeper on its back and goes in. Shoot outs only
User avatar #34 to #28 - stefanovic (05/14/2013) [-]
actually, it would count... the post doesn't really count as an object

(trust me, I'm a ref)
User avatar #29 to #28 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Just like when a player hits the post during the match he is not allowed to be the first player to hit the ball again
User avatar #39 to #29 - emrakul (05/14/2013) [-]
also not true
User avatar #45 to #39 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Oh sod it. Law 14 of the FIFA states that the player who puts the ball into play (by taking a penalty) is not allowed to touch the ball before another player hits the ball. Therefore if one takes a penalty and hits the post he is not allowed to touch it again.

However if the penalty hits the goalkeeper it hit another player and therefore he is allowed to score it.

And if you don't believe me look it up (or ask Stefanovic.. he's a ref)
User avatar #47 to #45 - emrakul (05/14/2013) [-]
right, but only in the case of a penalty kick, at basically any other time a rebound off the post is live to all players.
User avatar #48 to #47 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
... please tell me you were aware of the fact we were discussing penalties..
User avatar #50 to #48 - emrakul (05/14/2013) [-]
"just like when a player hits the post during the match he is not allowed to be the first player to hit the ball again"

I was aware, believe me
User avatar #54 to #50 - derklucas (05/14/2013) [-]
Oh well.. guess I could have been more clear about it.
User avatar #55 to #54 - emrakul (05/14/2013) [-]
no problem man
User avatar #25 to #23 - morningwoodstock (05/14/2013) [-]
not true, the ball never was technically out of bounds, so that would just count as it going off the post
