OWNTF: Perfect.

Watching the goalie in black jump, kick a guy in the back with both feet, and then run away in a very prissy manner, waiting for someone to catch him but apparently no one being able to looks like something out of a Monty Python Silly Walks sketch.

I liked it when they had to bring the Storm-Troopers in to restore order.

Wow, its like the rules of the game still apply. No hands, lets just push! Lets jump kick with cleats. Brilliant clip. Great find.

Sissy fight

They do realize fighting is one area where hands are allowed, right?

I've seen teenage girls fight nastier on youtube.

In the game of soccer, how many red cards is one team allowed to get? If it is unlimited, I suppose you could have a 3 Vs. 3 match or even a 1 Vs. 1 match. I think that would be weird, so is there a rule of some sort about this?

Law Three of The Laws of the Game stipulate that teams must have seven players on the field. If one team has less than seven players (meaning in your case if they were red-carded so much that only six players remained) they would forfeit the match to the other team.

This rarely happens, of course, outside of video games and a certain Chinese movie called "Shaolin Soccer". Most often, teams from smaller countries or your local recreational league can't get the whole team to the stadium that day and have to forfeit for not having enough players.

Cases like this video, though, make you wonder how close it can get.

Galaxy are starting a vertibale "Where are they now?" of US Soccer: Eddie Lewis, Tony Sanneh, and Jovan Kirovski.

Franco Niell!

The giant scored tonight for Gimnasia y Esgrima (that's gymnastics & fencing which sounds like a pretty dangerous combination) La Plata with a low far post shot from the right as his team won 2-0.

Sorry don't even remember who GELP beat. Just watching Contacto Deportivo highlights...

That begs a lot of questions, I-270...

Is this a capoeira training video?

Just a damned good thing that hockey players don't fight with their feet...

I am convinced that the level of soccer intelligence on this blog and in the comments is infinitely greater than just about any other blog. One blog in particular...

Great stuff. Bravo, Mr. Goff. Bravo.

Yeah, I think Wu-Tang Clan made a whole album rapping about this very movie.

anybody just catch the Ronaldo free kick in the united/rovers game? Thing of beauty. It came just a few minutes after he picks up a yellow card for another pansy dive of his in the box. Hate him and love him at the same time.

Why is it that when football brawls (I'm using the term loosely) like these they can be some of the most pansy fights ever seen. Cheap shots, sucker kicks and the kick-n-run; if you're going to brawl then do it like a man.

I have never seen jersey number one worn by players other than the goal keepers but I see it one in Mexico's Jaguares. That seems really strange to see!

Barca looks like it's dropping plans for an MLS expansion team.

Man, the dude Peters is HUGE for a CB, like a Gooch . . .

From Behind the Badge . ""He stands at 6-5, and weighs 205 pounds. He is not small. ""

Eh, no worries, Miami wouldn't have sold much.

Portland or Vancouver are legit for a top spot plus another team in another region ?? . . .

Here's to ULBRA, representing Lutheranism in the finest fashion.

I think barca, like ac Milan, were kind of shocked when the small fry from the provinces weren't appreciative enough of their glory and kowtowed in awe.
