Watching the football with your Dad starter pack

"come on" *stands up* "COME ON" *team misses*


TonyAlCaponey

“OHHHHHH....”


perfectstubble

Man, I love watching football with my dad.


Notradell

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.


HamsterBaiter

The number of times I've had to explain how offsides rules work to fellow soccer parents is exhausting.


10sharks

Wait, what the actual f... Oh, *football* football


Easy_Eight315

Yes, the only proper way to name the game, football. Not this ridiculous ‘soccer’ nonsense. Now cue the angry Americans.


Peechez

England called it soccer first


Jcat555

They all forget this, but get butthurt when Americans call it the original name.


abowlofrice1

Ain’t no muricans angry, it’s soccer and that’s end of story. Football is another sport.


BallisongDude

Football = ball + feet. It's football.


abowlofrice1

Lmao ok


dgdfgdfhdfhdfv

Ok so tennis is now racketball? Golf is clubball?


engepeter

Tennis comes from the French word tenez


BallisongDude

If there's confusion about their names and the other common name sure


DRZBYC

So shouldn't it be "ball foot"?


only_pudin

Till I saw Sterling.


User_Name08

This is totally my dad, although with whatever sport he’s watching


TheGingerOracle

Raheem Sterling is fucking shit tho said it for years and years now people are finally seeing it


LordGinge

Yeah, you're right. And all of his previous and current coaches and managers are wrong. Long live the genius that is TheGingerOracle.


LordGinge

Hey man, remember me?


TheGingerOracle

What about it


BigChung0924

this hasn’t aged well at all lmao


TheGingerOracle

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


Time-Sand-1452

I have that exact same sky remote


duckface27

Did you see that ridiculous display last night


StinkoModee

Claps loudly


48Planets

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.


AmOdd

It's the passion, wanting your club to win, sometimes its because the team represents where they're from


48Planets

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.


AmOdd

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


JohnBrown42069

Sport fandom is the same thing as nationalism, except (generally) harmless


48Planets

Tell that to philly


SettleDownAlready

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.


Panthila

If only war was solved with a game of Football.


10YearsANoob

Didnt drogba do that? Or someone in africa did that to end a civil war


loosecannon4612

What tf is an offside?


puddlejumpers

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.


Maximum_joy

wut


PricelessPlanet

You can't pass the ball to someone that is between the goalkeeper and the last defender.


BallisongDude

What's stopping everyone from moving up


PricelessPlanet

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.


VenusLake

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.


ScorpionX-123

missing the casually racist remarks


Slavinger

Things us Americans stare at without understanding starter pack


DRZBYC

I still have no clue what "offside" is


Niall690

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


Ladratiburon

It's the same with my dad but with tennis instead of football ( without the team things)


NightCupcake

Tennent's beer


Coreforce216

You forgot the “HhuuEEeeYYyyyyY!” When his team scores a goal.


Nuttellathehun

Soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer soccer


SPARTAN-117a
