Why I won't watch futbol

Soccor is going to be the next big spactator sport in the USA. Going to be... Real soon now... for the last 30 years. But it's not going to be. We Americans like real football; the English call it "gridiron." Where men slam into each other then get up and walk away like nothing happened. In futbol a prime skill is the fake injury. Someone brushes against you and you are trained in theatrics to writhe in pain as if you had been impaled. There are videos of fake injury after fake. Why is the US coach complaining about fake injuries? He must not be European enough. It's not for me and I don't think this FIFA World Cup will result in more futbol fans in the US.
