      I know they created a commercial and will post it on youtube but what if ACG put out a real life video of us showing our skills like these soccer kids.....eh?

      Scene 1: A shot of a bunch of balding fat people or kids with soccerballs on their heads reading books
      Scene 2: A board with no movement (a 30 second video couldn't possibly have a turn in it.)
      Scene 3: Shot of a person at the computer with their wife nagging in the background
      Scene 4: A shot of someone wiggling their finger quickly to the sound of gunshots
      Scene 5: A bunch of wankers running around in the rain in old outfits ruining a perfectly good weekend
      Scene 6: Some dudes sitting around with their cats building toys that nobody can play with

          Let's see..

          How quickly he fades into oblivion. Soccer has had decades to "hook" America and has failed totally. Soccer with Beckham will be no different.

          How many Americans can even name the team he will play on? I guarantee it's a lot less than the number who could tell you who the bottom tier Presidential candidates are. And that's an abysmally low number.

              I wouldn't be so sure, given the vast amounts of merchandise Beckham has been moving. Brand Beckham could very well give soccer the shove it needs to hit the fourth tier of sports leagues.

                He's no Pele and he didn't make a dent. Americans like sports where you use your HANDS! Soccer just fails the test. His wife will be a "somewhat celebrity" far longer than he will.

                  playing football takes speed and tactics - first off, and only then - a technique.
                  lack of a technique Beckham would make up with tactics, speed and ability to tackle.
                  all aforementioned made him a football genius.

                    Yes, it's just his wife who is the liability in LA. I watched her documentary recently and it has been a long time since I've seen such a vacuous, self-absorbed woman. Or such a bunch of vultures surrounding a single tiny bird.

                    I feel for David Beckham. A nice AS lad with a good few physical gifts and hitched to that surgically enhanced monster...

                      I was forced to watch it too....I actually thought it was funny. Compared to the other rich chicks she seemed quite normal.

                      I just wish her jeans weren't $200 a pop. However, I'm seeing golf shoes advertised in at $169US and they are still $249 here? Am I missing something on the exchange?

                      I don't know her personally but when it comes to looks there is no need to worry about you fishing from my pond.

                      err...that would be my old pond. I now longer live remotely close to that pond. Some other lucky kid is now using the pond.

                          Pfft, give me a break. If soccer can succeed in Australia it can succeed in the US...despite the presence of rugby union, rugby league, AFL and cricket soccer is absolutely on fire on the moment - just had to be moved to summer and given proper administrative and media support.

                              alas !!
                              still, nice to see him playing for a national team -
                              though, England is in the same qualification group with Russia and both teams are soon to play each other.
