It's not fun to argue because it's not an argument at all. Here is the first definition when I Googled "Definition of Sport":

sport
spôrt/Submit
noun
1.
an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment.
team sports such as baseball and soccer


So they even use soccer as an example in their definition. End of discussion!

So Google is now the bible? any geek, nerd english major who possible never had an athletic background can write crap on google....Does Soccer fit the Criteria of a sport? (see list of criteria above). I like soccer also, but I would not compare it with boxing or wrestling.

The history of soccer dates back over 2000 years, but never included in the ancient olympic games (not until recently) you know why? Ancient Greece (Yes the back bone of our modern democracy and the english language) Ancient Greece knew then soccer was not a real sport.

“I swear it upon Zeus an outstanding runner cannot be the equal of an average wrestler.”

Well if you are going to swear upon Zeus we will have to concede. Zeus is zeus.

yes, what I said on the first page-just had to look up the standard dictionary definition as to what is accepted. Now, the guy who started the thread doesn't accept that. LOL.
