The reputation has been earned but the game's reputation is exaggerated to the extent that some
consider all football fans and players to be of the same stereotype of the minority... Unfortunately
it's always the minority that get the headlines and bring the reputation of the whole sport down.
Sports are all for entertainment purposes you watch people play their little hockey
-football-basketball games while the government slowly makes the American dollar worth more than it
seem so that your always in debt and you always work your off for more of it when the market is
designed to crash. They don't want your money that want power. And watching football and being lazy
is how you give it to them.
I like playing football but i hate watching and hearing asbot professional football it has gone way
away form what is was designed to be also the violence by fans is unacceptable football has a lot to
learn from rugby and even cricket
Soccer is the most boring sport aside from Baseball. I'm yawning while I post my answer. The main
reason it's so popular is because all you need to play it with is a ball (and professionally,
cleats). Other, more complex sports, require forms of equipment and thus many poorer people can't
afford many teams of the more high-quality sports Hockey, Football (American) and Golf/Tennis.
Foot ball has only developed a bad reputation for violence because people in the game were and still
are violent, football is attracting the wrong stereotype of people and has no way to go back, whilst
foot ball itself is not doomed its name and reputation is.
