Well, apparently it's an abbreviation for "Association Football"... And apparently, some say the word originated in England...

Don't know how accurate those info are. I don't like the word soccer. PERIOD.

It's called FOOTball, because we play it with the FOOT. American "foot"ball is not even played with the foot mainly... wtf..

I dislike most 'spectator' sports cos it usually means that after a meal, the women have to wash the dishes whilst the men watch sport on telly.

I like to watch football (FIFA) but I can't stand to watch any more football (American rules). I ODd a long time ago, and all the games look the same, only the players get paid more and their rap sheets are longer.

Yeah, not only do I not like it, I find it immensely irritating.
I just cannot see the point.

I know I will be in the minority here on this one:
Worst: Football, any kind of American, English whatever. 22 (or whatever) "men" kicking an inflatable pigs bladder around on a piece of grass (or astroturf) trying to kick it into a net. Then if they do they all run and kiss each other (or pat each other on the butt)!!! US footy is not that different they just stand around for long periods of time after 30 seconds of play.
Golf is about as exciting as watching paint dry either to play or watch!
Cricket largley rates up there with US footy, we do not even get streakers now to make it more amusing!!

Best sports: British Touring Cars, F1 can be a rather processional affair, rallying but I do not care for US motorsprts at all.
Downhill ski-ing can be exciting especially if its giant slalom. Snooker can be ok to.
