 if you play with pussies, sure. obviously you've never played with a competitive soccer player, or hung out with anyone who was.

 You kids are young, your generation is full of wimps. It used to be different, but you weren't even born yet so I wouldn't expect you to understand. Go ahead and negative prop me so you feel better about yourself on something you have no clue about.

 If you've ever watched premiere league or international soccer they play up every little trip to try and get penalties. You aren't so old yourself, Mr. Anyways, I'm glad Richie was ok after this.

 Ustemuf- you are right this generation is a bunch of whimps. Like look at all those young Americans, Canadians and Brits fighting over seas in Iraq and Afghanistan we are a bunch of pussies compared to you. Enjoy playing your soccer or watching it!

 What does war have to do with this?? Lol.. You guys are taking examples of people who flop and ruin the image of soccer.

Judging by everyones pb photo album who commented here, my statement still stands. Being ignorant and funny gets you all the props!! Keep it up.

 Wow.. 28, you must just have a 50 year old ego... I'm sorry but the reason I don't watch football or "soccer" is because of just how pathetic the majority of players are in the modern game, it infuriates me how quickly and readily they fall down and I can't watch or enjoy it. But like k8piranha said, just glad Richie came out of this ok

 why do we need to hate on other sports?? soccer is pretty gnarly and requires pretty intensive training to stay in shape. what to mountain bikers do? get hungover as hell and huck stuff? haha
  • + 1
 Haha I'm not hating on it man, I respect soccer even if I don't like watching it.. Although I can't say my world of mountainbiking involves hucking with a hangover.. hah

 @ustemuf Richie just turned 18 and he placed 23rd overall in his first World Cup season. He still has another season as a junior and there isn't a doubt in my mind he'll be world champ this year. As for the picture, it speaks for itself, and it contradicts your belief that our generation is a bunch of wimps. Soccer is painful to watch, I hear they don't even allow you to play professionally unless you've gone to acting school.
