    Riiight. Your opinion, but seriously, we're basically the only major nation in the entire world who has such apathy for the sport, so why are people surprised that someone could be more excited about it then this one?

    And your last statement was too ignorant to be taken as anything other than sarcasm...:ha:

    I am surprised he likes soccer over football because his dad was the greatest running back of all time. Is that hard to understand? If it were me or you it would make more sense. He's Walter Payton's son and he like soccer better than football.
    :hmm: WOW!!

    As for my last statement, I meant it. Maybe he would've rather been playing soccer and didn't have the passion that most NFL'ers do. It does happen. Do you think his father would've been as good as he was if he didn't work harder than everbody else. I Doubt it, but he had the passion and the drive to work hard enough to become great. I'm not saying Jared didn't try, I'm just suggesting that he may not have had the passion.

    Some people just don't have it.

    I could work on my game everyday, studying, training and what not and I still most likely wouldn't be good enough to play College ball

    His dad wouldn't have been in the Hall of Fame if he didn't work as hard as he did. Of course, you can never place those expectations on Jared but maybe he never wanted to put in the effort of becoming a good player in the NFL. Therefore, he wasn't... All I'm saying is it's unusual for a guy that plays one sport professionally (I'm leaving out the fact his dad was Walter Payton) to like another sport better. . Usually people gravitate towards their favorite sport or at least the sport their best at. Especially if they have the athletic ability to play anything they want.

    To me, it's a little strange. He grew up in Chicago which definately wasn't a Soccer town and he played football at Miami which, again, probably isn't much of a soccer school. So, it seems unusual that a guy like him would like watching soccer over football.
