    I try to include soccer when I can, but this is an American website with a mostly American audience and the audience for soccer just isn't that big here. It's not "biased" to not include soccer, it's simply a decision I've made based on the audience. That being said, I rarely do an all-inclusive list that doesn't include soccer. Also, it's not "fact" that soccer is the "greatest sport in the world," it's fact that it's the most popular outside the US.

    I don't dislike the sport and I find it a little bit presumptuous and, frankly, kind of sh*tty to say that I haven't taken the time to learn the game. I played soccer for 16 years and have a great respect and fondness for the game. Perhaps, I don't know as much about the global game as I could (or should), but I don't think it's accurate to portray me as ignorant of the game.

    I do appreciate the compliment and the fact that you're reading. I'd be happy to discuss this further, should you feel the need, but ideally it's something that'd I'd prefer to continue via a private message—rather than a public debate about my ignorance on my bulletin board.
