So I haven't followed any soccer for much of my life. Back in 2010 after the World Cup I started paying more attention to the Champions league and some MLS teams.

Now that Atlanta is getting their own MLS team, I may actually have a reason to watch...soccer. Anyone else follow MLS? I know most of you don't, but I'm all for the United States becoming a soccer nation and dominating foreigner's only sport they care about. :trollface:

Also, I hope Atlanta has a decent name, that Atlanta Phoenix crap recently sounds horrible. I like Atlanta Olympica, with a Phoenix as a logo maybe. To symbolize the cities' rise from the ashes after you know what and who.

I've tried to get into soccer before, but I just can't do it. I like the World Cup though and can get into it for that time, but that's about it. For me it's kinda like the Summer Olympics. I get into it, then when/if we lose I go "oh yeah, I don't care about this sport anyway."

Didn't even know ATL was getting a team. I may try to watch a few games and see if I can get into it. Honestly though I'd be a little worried people would view me as "one of those soccer fans."

Haha it's basically like that in most places, definitely seems to be more common here in the south. Bringing up soccer to any of my friends would be more of a laugh, but I know we all love some World Cup. 'Merica

Maybe it will slowly become a game people watch, they're expanding and growing some how, so maybe some progress is made. As a sports fan I'm willing to try also.

I follow the MLS a bit, but really just the national team. I'm already a big college sports, NFL, MLB, NHL, and NBA guy. At some point I have to draw a line.

I did see where Atlanta is getting a team, personally I think it's a mistake, no offense to Atlanta sports fans but you guys aren't exactly a good sports town. If I end up moving to Atlanta after school I will support the club but if not I'll just remain a casual observer.

The MLS is hard to follow because it isn't consistently on TV. They just have a new combined TV deal with ESPN, Fox, and beIN that will make much more of the games on TV.

Soccer is the best sport in the world for women. Not the game for a self-respecting man.

I mostly follow EPL and International Soccer but I try to catch certain MLS teams play (Kansas City, Seattle and Toronto currently).  Im not sure who ATL's owner but if they dont spend a large amount of cash right out of the gate they will be at the bottom of the league for quite awhile.  Expansion teams typically do pretty bad initially unless they spend a lot of money early to get talent.

Well it's not a thread discussing men's physique, so I didn't expect you you like it. :trollface:

I mean that its embarrassing to see some of these antics players do with the fake injuries. And when our national team coach came out and said we have no shot, I decided it wasnt all that great of a sport for someone with competitive nature.

And I could watch the women all day, I love our womens national team. I like the sport, but its about as clean as boxing and the players tick me off.

The coach said that as motivation when taken in context to what he was saying.

Women's soccer is not fun to watch. I do see though why you like the women's national team, they are good and easy to cheer for being a bandwagon fan as yourself.
