    On Monday, Sports Illustrated editor Mark Mravic posted this video of a brilliant goal from a Women’s World Cup match between England and Norway, along with a little comment regarding fellow SI writer Andy Benoit’s distaste for women’s soccer: And here some people (ahem, @Andy_Benoit) argue that women’s soccer isn’t worth watching. https://t.co/0IdV8BdDH3 — Mark Mravic (@MarkMravic) […]

    For everyone out there who thought that the Brits were a proper, uptight lot: They’re actually terrible perverts. Look no further than the slogan those deviants created for their female soccer team. Disgusting. Ok, so there’s no way that the intended interpretation was supposed to be gross, but ‘come one’! That’s such an overt sign […]

    The Copa America is a very high-stakes tournament in which the countries of South and Central America duke it out to establish regional dominance in between World Cups. But even with all that competition, there’s still the ability to get starstruck when a player from a small Caribbean island gets to take the field against […]

    Partick Thistle FC’s New Mascot Is Made Out of Nightmares

    When you’re a Scottish Premiere League team, as Partick Thistle FC is, you have to really work to get your name known outside your homeland.  Well, I have to say that they’ve done a good job of that after unveiling Kingsley, an asymmetrical monstrosity that looks like it will eat your soul, not unlike The […]

    Argentine Soccer Player Knocks Out Ref with a Left Hook (Video)

    Here’s a clip that’s short and sweet. The little context we have is an opposing player on the ground and a ref holding up a yellow card. A player seems to object to that yellow card by marching with purpose up to the ref, but he’s not the one that lays him out. That would […]

    Neymar got off to an incredible start at this year’s Copa America tournament in Chile, scoring a goal and setting up another during Brazil’s 2-1 win in their opening match against Peru.  It looked like this could be the moment when the 23-year-old forward finally leads his country to a major tournament victory (and no, […]

    Report: Sepp Blatter May Not Resign After All, Probably Just to Mess with Us

    Generally speaking, when an organization goes through the kind of public scandal FIFA has been going through these last few weeks, the person or people in charge of that organization resigns. However, FIFA is not a normal organization. When FIFA president Sepp Blatter actually did step down on June 2, just days after being re-elected, […]

    Neymar Did This to Peru at Copa America (Videos)

    Brazil beat Peru by a score of 2-1 during their opening match at the 2015 Copa America tournament, and they have Neymar to thank for their first three points. The Barcelona striker scored the opening goal for his country, and at times he seemed flat-out unstoppable.  Here’s one of those times, as he danced around a couple […]

    Kung-fu kicks were beginning to become too commonplace in the sport of soccer.  So it is nice to see Seattle Sounders 2 midfielder Sergio Mota change things up a bit with a two-footed groin kick, which he delivered to an L.A. Galaxy II player during a USL game last night. Check it out: Mota received a […]

    Stephen A. Smith Makes Sexist Comment About Women’s Soccer (Video)

    As if Stephen A. Smith didn’t already have enough of the female population pissed off at him for his insensitive remarks regarding domestic violence following last year’s Ray Rice incident. Now the ESPN analyst and First Take host is back in the spotlight (for all the wrong reasons) after making some male chauvinist remarks while commentating […]
