Hey gamer! Do you have trouble understanding the beautiful game? Thankfully Danny found a mysterious VHS tape that will have you enjoying football (or soccer!) in no time!

Of course! It all makes sense now, but football (I'm from the PAL region) is just a rip off of capture the flag!

Do you not think that could bring in a bit of variety though? COD has new modes every year, couldn't they add a bit of King of the Hill or Domination to keep things fresh? It's been the same game EVERY YEAR for 100's of years.

This is sad. Football is the no.1 sport on the planet ( I DON'T CARE IF YOU DON'T THINK SO! ), everyone should be familiar and should be watching World Cup! ( Though the teams aren't what they used to be... sigh )

You realise you've forever changed the way I'll refer to this hot balls game!  Awesome show as always!

Been loving it as I always do, but giving someone a penalty kick for getting tripped off to the side of the net was ridiculous. I'll always take hockey over soccer. Gotta be facing the net, and have a clear chance to shoot at net/breakaway taken in order to get a penalty shot. I know where the box is, but these guys cry and dive enough, don't add incentive when the guy couldn't have even shot from where the foul took place.

"Strategic injuries and feigning death are often employed"

Classic!  This really does more to explain the game than several hours of watching it.

Hilarious as balls, or in this case a leather spherical flag roughly 27" in diameter.

this video has a mistake Australia is a PAL territory and generally people here refer to it as soccer rather then football

 On the goalie: "He can use his hands, but the use of this OP spell is restricted to the sacred Rectangle of Power."


God, that was a great line.

I don't care for football, but this was awesome and very creative. Many laughs were had.


I actually watched the Chile vs Brasil match today at work with my boss (well parts of it) and it was pretty fun. Not the match itself, but watching him yell and scream every now and then when either team scored. :P

Why do goalkeepers not wear the same jersey as his team? I'm into the world cup this year but no one says anything about this.

"Biting can result in a permaban". lol

Well not quite, but Suarez definitely did get penalized harshly. And his team got eliminated for it today, so...goes to show you should follow the rules, unless you want to drag the WHOLE team down.

Soccer is way too easy to understand! Soccer is like checkers as American Football is like Chess. American Football took me a few years playing to fully understand it as I grew up but growing up I understood Soccer in less then a couple of days.

Not recognizing the dude in the wig, I believed the "old VHS tape" ruse till the very end.  Doh!  That was some clever editing btw.

@nesky  YES, it sucks that once the USA lost we've gotten a lot less world cup coverage...

@chrisb2313 Pretty simple, it is so he isn't confused as an outfield player, A whole lot of mistakes could take place if the goalie blending in as the rest his teammates.

@fallout25 You typing this really shows you know nothing about the sport of Football or excuse me...Soccer. Yes basic concepts of the game are easy to comprehend but there is a lot more to it then just passing the ball up the pitch and shooting it into the net.

@EtroAnime I did like what the Mexicans did where their goalie's uniform used the same LIGHTANING BOWLTAH as the normal uniform.

@Furry_McTank Especially in the way rugby players wear no armour and play is much more continuous. Plus you actually have to plant the ball onto the ground, which AF doesn't bother to employ.
