Ann Coulter: Real Americans hate soccer 'No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer,' columnist writes Millions of Americans watched the United States advance in the World Cup on Thursday. Ann Coulter was probably not one of them. In a column published on Wednesday, Coulter, the conservative pundit and provocateur, blasted the sport of soccer and trolled its U.S. fans, whom she refers to as "Americans" — quotes marks included. "I've held off on writing about soccer for a decade — or about the length of the average soccer game — so as not to offend anyone," Coulter's column begins. "But enough is enough. Any growing interest in soccer can only be a sign of the nation's moral decay." Coulter lists all the reasons why she says soccer is not a real sport. Among them: "Individual achievement is not a big factor." "The blame is dispersed and almost no one scores anyway," Coulter writes. "There are no heroes, no losers, no accountability, and no child's fragile self-esteem is bruised. There's a reason perpetually alarmed women are called 'soccer moms,' not 'football moms.'" Another: It's boring, she claims. "If Michael Jackson had treated his chronic insomnia with a tape of Argentina vs. Brazil instead of Propofol, he'd still be alive, although bored," Coulter quips. [Related: Yahoo Sports' full World Cup coverage] It's not violent enough for Coulter. "The prospect of either personal humiliation or major injury is required to count as a sport," she writes. "Most sports are sublimated warfare." In American football, she writes, "ambulances carry off the wounded. After a soccer game, every player gets a ribbon and a juice box." And despite the stellar ratings that Sunday's USA-Portugal game received in the United States (18.2 million viewers, according to ESPN), Coulter doesn't believe the sport is actually catching on here. "The same people trying to push soccer on Americans are the ones demanding that we love HBO's 'Girls,' light-rail, Beyoncé and Hillary Clinton," she writes. "The number of New York Times articles claiming soccer is 'catching on' is exceeded only by the ones pretending women's basketball is fascinating." Coulter claims she's not the only one bored by soccer in the States. "One group of sports fans with whom soccer is not 'catching on' at all, is African-Americans," Coulter writes. "They remain distinctly unimpressed by the fact that the French like it. "If more 'Americans' are watching soccer today, it's only because of the demographic switch effected by Teddy Kennedy's 1965 immigration law," Coulter adds. "I promise you: No American whose great-grandfather was born here is watching soccer. One can only hope that, in addition to learning English, these new Americans will drop their soccer fetish with time." Soccer fans were not exactly impressed:
Now that the US is picking interest in real football, this can help them to understand better what it means to be a world champion. It's always laughable to hear the Americans referring to the team that wins the supper bowl as a world champion. A world champion can only be declared after competing with other countries of the world and not in a competition that is played among teams in the same country. If they want to know if they are the world champions, then they have to bring the game to the world stage. Football started in England but today the England team cannot see the last 16 of the competition and if not that the game was brought to the world stage, they would have still claim that they are the world champion.
Another African country, Ivory Coast bid the world goodbye @Brazil 2014. All eyes is now on African Champion, Nigeria.
In the end it was Ghana 2 and Germany 2, it was made of sweat and blood for the 4 goals scored. That was a world cup game and congrats to both teams!
The Germans are taller but Ayew can jump!
Although they've lost this match, there's victory even in defeat. Congratulations to Argentina but the Iranians lost with respect.
Magnificent Messi finally demolishes the Iranian team in 91 minutes of the game.
And the Iranian keeper is doing a good job so far keeping Messi away from scoring. The game continues!
The Argentinian and Iranian match has taken a different turn as Argentinians have been made to concede corners unlike the first half that possession was 70 to 30 in favor of the Argentinians. Keep enjoying the drama of the game.
Can Iran score against Argentina when the ball is only played in the Iranians' half?
