    If that's real, I can't believe the editor would allow something like that to happen.

    But it's the New York Post, which had the classic "Headless body in topless bar" cover, so this is no stretch, traditionally.

    Although this one does seem Onion-esque, in a way.

    Why not? I follow soccer but only during the World Cup and only until the United States is eliminated. I am sure the Post isn't worried about ******* off the few hundred soccer fans in this country with that headline.

    This. The Post is pretty much a tabloid. A headline like that is not terribly surprising.

    Re: This sport is stupid anyway

    The soccer bashing in this country is just unreal to me. I had a co-worker tell me today that he was glad the US lost so he wouldn't have to hear about soccer anymore. PATHETIC. It's the United States! If you don't like soccer then don't watch. Why everyone who doesn't like it has to try and ruin it for others is beyond me.

    I'm not trying to get people to like soccer. I don't give a **** if you like soccer or not. I just don't get why people who don't like it have to go out of their way to try and ruin it for people who do. I don't like hockey but I don't post in every hockey thread about how stupid I think the sport is.

    On the other hand, I find some soccer defenders to be just as annoying. I've had many people tell me that "I just don't get it" or "You have to give it a chance," when it comes to soccer. Well, I've got news for you, "I have given it a chance, and there's not that much to get." It's just not my cup of tea. But just because I happen to find the game painfully boring, I get labeled as a neanderthal, like there is some deep rooted wisdom I'm missing, that I'll discover if I just watch enough games end in a tie.

    Time to thicken your skin a little bit. I enjoy soccer, but I found that headline rather humorous.

    I'll tell you why. Because there's a lot of people like you out there telling us we should like it, how it's the world's sport, blah, blah, blah. Every four years we have to hear it.
