Why is soccer the king of sports ???
I always wonder that why the king of sports is soccer. Why isn't the other sport?
In UK the biggest participant sport is Angling or Fishing in lakes and rivers with a rod. professional football is not a sport,in my opinion, because of the acceptance of cheating. A player can deliberately use his hand to prevent a goal and the football authorities do nothing about it. Ireland and Ghana were cheated out of the World Cup because of DELIBERATE handball. Yet these so called professionals get paid thousands of pounds per day.
tripping, pulling shirts, pretending to fall on a player to stop him progressing towards the goal - are all accepted by FIFA.
Not a great example to children.
