    I second that.

    I dont see how being a bigger fan of soccer than football makes him a bad player, or means he doesnt have the fire or determination to make the roster. Lots of athletes are bigger fans of sports they dont play. Frankly, it makes sense... if you were a carpenter, would you want to build houses in your free time? No, you'd want to fish, or play softball or something. These guys lives revolved around football, its probably healthy that they want to take a break from it in their free time.

    At this point of the year, I think most guys may tune into to watch the World Cup.

    I don't think this article will have any effect whatsoever

    The World Cup is the biggest sporting event in the world. Why shouldn't someone be excited about it?

    Because it's boring as hell... He grew up Walter Payton's son and he likes watching soccer more than football. No wonder he was never any good.

    Nobody ever expected him to fill his dad shoes. We all love Payton, don't get me wrong. All I'm saying is maybe he just didn't have his heart into it as much has he could've.

    I don't think it looks complicated. Just Boring.

    run and kick run and kick run and kick run and kick run and kick run and kick...........

    It's not popular here because it's boring. It's monotinous.

    That may be true. We don't care. I no that sounds arrogant but seriously most people don't care. I think the media follows World Cup (here in the US) just because they feel like they should due to the fact that it's so popular everywhere else. Personally, I know that most all my friends that are sports fans care little to nothing about Soccer. The biggest reason is probably because we suck at it. There's no doubt. I am sure that there would be a surge of interest if the US ever became competative at World Cup Soccer. Until then, I wish everyone on ESPN radio, news, and Sportscentre would take a big glass of shut the hell up about it... It's over, finally.
