Watching the football with your Dad starter pack
By - noctus_exterreri
Man, I love watching football with my dad.
Same. I guess it sucks if you’re not into sports but watching football with my dad has always been fun and a nice bonding experience.
The number of times I've had to explain how offsides rules work to fellow soccer parents is exhausting.
Wait, what the actual f... Oh, *football* football
Yes, the only proper way to name the game, football. Not this ridiculous ‘soccer’ nonsense.
Now cue the angry Americans.
England called it soccer first
They all forget this, but get butthurt when Americans call it the original name.
Ain’t no muricans angry, it’s soccer and that’s end of story. Football is another sport.
Football = ball + feet. It's football.
Ok so tennis is now racketball? Golf is clubball?
Tennis comes from the French word tenez
If there's confusion about their names and the other common name sure
So shouldn't it be "ball foot"?
Till I saw Sterling.
This is totally my dad, although with whatever sport he’s watching
Raheem Sterling is fucking shit tho said it for years and years now people are finally seeing it
Yeah, you're right. And all of his previous and current coaches and managers are wrong.
Long live the genius that is TheGingerOracle.
Hey man, remember me?
What about it
this hasn’t aged well at all lmao
You mean where especially against Germany he did nothing but lose the ball constantly and Luke Shaw was the one who did all the work he was the one to put it on a plate for him even Sterling couldn't miss that
I have that exact same sky remote
Did you see that ridiculous display last night
I don't understand how people get so worked up over sports, or really how they get worked up over anything as much as football fans do who start screaming and howling at the TV.
It's the passion, wanting your club to win, sometimes its because the team represents where they're from
Eh, I've just never had that passion I guess. To me it all just looks obnoxious and annoying when I see people act like that.
Sometimes people take it too far, but they're usually shouting cause they get a rush, winning just feels so good. Like in [Formula 1](https://youtu.be/kPcK9YvfUtM), the highs are really high and the lows are really low
Sport fandom is the same thing as nationalism, except (generally) harmless
Tell that to philly
I can tell you that Philadelphia Eagles fans can give some of the funniest post loss interviews ever. They often sound like they were just out there on the field or they have a perfect PR worthy response to why the Eagles lost.
If only war was solved with a game of Football.
Didnt drogba do that? Or someone in africa did that to end a civil war
What tf is an offside?
Your furthest teammate down field (towards the opponent's goal) cannot be past the last defender before you pass the ball. After the ball leaves your foot, he is legal to sprint past the defender, just not before.
You can't pass the ball to someone that is between the goalkeeper and the last defender.
What's stopping everyone from moving up
Counter attacks. You can't pass the ball to someone that is past the defender the moment you let go of the ball but can "shot" the ball ahead and you forward runs after it hopping he beats the defender in speed. [From 1min](https://youtu.be/R5KbgwXSXkE) you can see some plays using this.
You can se the player passes the ball when the receiver is still before the defender but he actually receives the ball 20m ahead, when he alredy left the defender behind.
Think of it this way, the attacking players can’t just wait at the goal for someone to kick it up to them.
They need to be behind a player from the opposite team when the ball is passed to them.
missing the casually racist remarks
Things us Americans stare at without understanding starter pack
I still have no clue what "offside" is
Then after the game when you wanna watch something he watches the after game talk with Gary Neville and the other ones don’t know their name
It's the same with my dad but with tennis instead of football ( without the team things)
You forgot the “HhuuEEeeYYyyyyY!” When his team scores a goal.
Soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer
This is the third soccer starterpack I've seen today is there some big game or something?
The euros are on at the moment
Scotland vs England
Im 14 and I feel personnaly offended
