no sucky tebows dominating the highlights..
no rules against bounty hunting..
world cup greater than superbowl
champions league greater than college football
euro cup is greater than draft..
sissys wear shoulser pads..
patriots undefeated season was just as impressive as fins..
eli will always be less than brees rodgers brady and peyton..

Well I definitely have a different opinion on this topic than you do, but that's not really why I took this TD. I think most people would have a different opinion, so me disagreeing isn't anything to write home about. Beefy could do that. Matter of fact that's about all he can do ("I'm gonna go ahead and take the opposite of what you picked"), but I digress.
The real reason I want to argue this is because I believe there are a few holes in your reasoning, and I would like to try and see if I can get you to change your mind about them.
For one, your logic is a little questionable. No sucky Tebows ruining soccer highlights? What if I said the NFL doesn't have any suck Ronaldos ruining their highlights? It's just my opinion. Or you say the Euro Cup is greater than the draft. Apples and oranges, friend. The NFL draft is greater than whatever soccer does for a draft, and proof of that is the fact that none of us even know how the soccer draft works, if there is one. Last opinion I want to challenge... sissies wear shoulder pads? Well what kind of player flops his **** off every time the opposing player simply breathes too close to him? That indicates true sissiness.

the main reason I did this TD was cause I got tired of people throwing soccer under the bus..
so I thought I would take some decent jabs at sports you love..
let me continue..
better atmosphere at soccer, we sing songs..
we have more passion, hence the hooligans..
we have more depth.. NFL only has a handful of good QBs, the rest suck..
we have a true world cup.. you have a national cup..
we give the big trophy to the most deserving consistent team..
you give yours to a team that goes on a 3/4 game winning streak..
we relegate the sucky teams as punishment..
you worship sucky teams like a burger king franchise..

Fair enough; feel free to attack the NFL. We all do it to soccer, so I guess the law of averages says someone should take the NFL to task as well.
Anyway, I don't think soccer fans are more passionate; I think thy're more uncivilized. People get killed at soccer matches. (Heck, players even die, but that's a whole-nother story and it's very unfortunate) I'll pass on that kind of "passion".
Depth? Well, more of the world plays soccer than football but I don't see how that makes the sport superior.
The World Cup I'm not going to clown; it's pretty cool and honestly I wouldn't mind seeing a "World Cup" in American football. Too bad only Americans are good at it...
Same with relegation. I like it. I wish American sports could somehow incorporate it.
Your point about worshipping sucky teams... I don't get it. Is it a bad thing for a fan of a sucky franchise to support their team? Are you insinuating that soccer fans are band wagoners? Not a good thing, in my book.
Anyway, the NFL has big hits. Soccer had big fakers.
The NFL has passing. Soccer has endless dribbling.
The NFL has scoring. Soccer hardly does, but they do have fruity **** shootouts.
