awesome news!

Contrairement à ce qu'il nous avait annoncé initialement, Didier Drogba n'est pas forfait pour la Coupe du monde. L'attaquant ivoirien, qui s'est fracturé ce vendredi le cubitus lors du match amical contre le Japon (2-0), a finalement décidé de se faire opérer. Le joueur, percuté par le défenseur central japonais Tulio à la 19e minute, pense ainsi être opérationnel dans dix jours. Il pourrait ainsi participier au premier match des Eléphants le 15 juin contre le Portugal.

He's going to play

yea dik, you need arms for positioning and throw ins, just like any other physical sport.

arms are used more in soccer than in basketball, it's a much more physical sport

I usually agree with your posts, but this one I do not follow

......What is this I don't even.



Anyway, arms are important for balance in soccer. Plus, it's not fun running around with a broken arm.

I've played both my whole life very competitively. Basketball is more about body positioning than arms. You can't play defense using your arms anymore in basketball because everything is a touch foul. In soccer, any time you are near an opponent, whether you're defending him with the ball, marking him off the ball, you have the ball, you're trying to get off his mark, etc... you are using your arms. Soccer has a reputation for being a non-contact sport because of all the diving (which is justifiable because the diving has gotten out of control), but it is more physical.

You live in Texas and you played soccer? Were you considered a second-class citizen?

I still play here, but my actual career I did not live in Texas. Soccer has a pretty big following in Texas though (obviously Latino related).

I'm talking about the physical aspect of it, why playing with a broken arm would be incredibly difficult in soccer. Obviously, basketball players use arms to shoot, pass, ballhandle, etc.

How do you expect to shield, throw in, balance yourself, sprint etc if one of your arms is not functioning?

I won't talk about the physical part, but for the use of hands discussion...what about shooting, dribbling, passing, etc? Or did you mean from a purely defensive standpoint? If so, I still disagree and hopefully most people with eyes would as well.

I didn't consider the Latino factor. Would've imagined soccer was looked down upon in Texas given how fanatical the state is about football.

And I'd say soccer is as physical as basketball. The contact in soccer is usually more intense, but it's more frequent in basketball.

Lots of misconceptions about the South. Big cities in the South and their surrounding areas are nothing like the small towns. I love football though so I like the small town culture as well.

Except for the fact, you know, that you can't play basketball without an arm.
