For the Ignorant

For those who think that soccer, aka, "futbol" to the rest of the world, isn't much of a sport, when is the last time you heard of a football player severing a leg artery during a game. That is exactly what Everton striker James Vaughan did in a Premier match against Bolton. Sure, football players occasionally break their necks because they propel their bodies into other players while lowering their head like a battering ram, but if you think American football is more physical than futbol then you've never seen a high-level soccer match in person. There's no comparison.

Yeah, yeah, but only because they don't wear pads. Football is fairly safe only because we recognize the danger in the sport and make an attempt to prevent injury. Blah blah, soccer players are real men, blah. Go dawgs!
