Watched a sony commercial recently with payton manning and some nascar guy, and at the mear mention of soccer, they start with condescending mocking/laughing. I've always been wondering this...why does mainstream NFL/Nascar watching america hate soccer so much? I mean you can't seem to mention soccer on TV or the internet without other americans telling you that its "gay", "boring", "no one cares", "third-world sport", "eurofag"...etc. How do you explain this hatred coming from one country for a sport that is loved by billions??? Does soccer represent some cultural or political idea that americans hate?
