      • rodrocks

        • Charlie_Cheen

          You have to feel bad when we are thumbing up Paula for calling out YOUR douchebaggery.

          • rodrocks

            Fail. Check the time and order, DOUCHE!

            • Charlie_Cheen

              Trolling is a art and you sir are no artist.

              • rodrocks

                How insightful or totally gay.

                • Terry Burke

                  good come back man…

              • Andyyyyyy

    • Malkintosh22

  • Lokobo


  • newscot

    I think #3 just came to a life-altering realization.

    • Jason

      Christiano Ronaldo is such a fag.

      • Gutterville

        You say fag, but you don't realise that he goes through women like toilet paper but I guess that happens when your 24 and rich enough to retire
        PS im not man u fan

      • David Milinovic

        I can't say I'm a big fan of his, but one thing is for sure – he's one hell of a player.

    • someguy

      I hate Ronaldo as much as the next guy. But he slays countless models; actresses; prostitutes.. chive should post that.

  • panama99

    #19 this is how you know a player is gay

    • whirrrrr

      There are probably some other clues too.

    • A Fan

      Aww man, I was just about to post the same thing. Well played sir.

  • Roberto Barreiro

    LEO .. did you post all of this in the main page???? why???

    • Paula_

      Oh come on, it's monday. As in: right after the weekend. Leo has been doing 7 different kind of drugs again. It's a small miracle he found his way back to the office in the first place.

      – always on drugs

  • wolf1e

    no wonder the Chive took a long time to load today!

  • lil pink unicorn

    Where is the GIF of Brandi Chastain scoring the winning World Cup Goal?

  • patov40

    #6, SCORPION!!! The rest however, more reasons why soccer won't catch on in the states and why European NBA players are ruining games with their diving and histrionics.

    • Alex

      Love the scorpion kick. Never gets old.

    • KUI

      And who exactly cares football won't catch on in the States?

      • 'Merican to You

        Whoooa whhoooa whoooa, buddy. Slow down. Round these parts, we call it soccer. We already have a game called football, doesn't really involve feet, but its way more bad assed then pretending people are head butting you.

        • walkingtheriver

          And exactly how much armor and protective gear does 'football' players wear mate? Exactly how long do they play before the game stops? Oh yeah, right… In FOOTBALL, you play 45 minutes, 15 minute break, 45+ minutes. In American football, they play for what? 1 or 2 minutes at a time?

          • wocmontana

            easy there buddy, I am a college football player, and before you sit there and act like you're such a badass and diss on other sports, try it. I give props to all sports, they all take dedication and hard work. Even all the pads in football can't protect you. I've had a concussion, broken arm, many broken fingers, a severed tendon in my wrist that I played on for two years before having reconstructive surgery, hyperextended knee, dislocated wrist that I popped back in and kept playing. And seriously the list could go on, not to mention the fact that it's basically a full time job to play in college between lifts, film and practice. So before you judge a sport actually attempt to play.

            • stonyjoe

              tackleball is a terrible sport for the following reasons: "a concussion, broken arm, many broken fingers, a severed tendon in my wrist that I played on for two years before having reconstructive surgery, hyperextended knee, dislocated wrist that I popped back in and kept playing. And seriously the list could go on"… no one is judging how crazy you have to be to play your sport, but they are questioning the legitimacy of the game. considering play stops every thirty seconds, there are tons of random penalties, the best players get injured all the time, etc.

              • wocmontana

                You can't call a sport terrible because you don't understand it, that's simply idiotic. I don't understand cricket, but I don't call it terrible. Same with many sports. There is more strategy to football than meets the unknowing eye. Judging by your use of the term, "random penalties" I know that you do not understand the game. As I told walkingtheriver, everyone has different tastes. I like football, you seem to enjoy what we call soccer. Guess what, That doesn't matter to me, I'm not the one to tell people what they can and can't like. Sorry bud, this is the internet and not everyone has the exact same mind as you.

            • walkingtheriver

              'So before you judge a sport actually attempt to play.'
              You're telling me not to judge? Well you just did yourself, because I did in fact play it back in school, and also tried it on a team, and I must say that if you think it's cool to break bones and get concussions etc, then you're quite messed up

              • wocmontana

                I never said broken bones were cool, I was simply disproving your point that no matter how much "armor" we wear it does not protect us. I love the game I play, I never said other people did too. It's not for everyone, but I think that just bashing the sport is dumb. Everyone in this world is different, so bashing a sport because you don't like is idiotic. Some people like to go out on the weekends and dress up and play live action role playing stuff, do I like to do that? No. Do I bash them because they like to do it? No. Sorry American Football isn't for you, it's definitely not a sport for everyone. Just my two cents, take it or leave it.

                • walkingtheriver

                  Funny how you go and call me idiotic, then later on in your reply you tell me sorry. Yeah, I don't think I care to reply to you again

        • KUI

          If you're coming with "our sport is manly, yours isn't", keep in mind we have rugby. You know, the one like american football, minus body armour.

        • David Milinovic

          Rugby players > Padded NFL players

          Enough said.

    • County Road Cutter


      • do it

        dwyane wade is european?

  • misschris

    #19 Um… what??

    • Give Carl your lunch

      soccer is gay…in this instance.

      • Ken

        Even if he is gay, it is still rich in WTF!

  • Alan

    #10 Gotta love Scottish football

  • GrumpyAss

    Thanks for putting 20 GIFS on the opening page of your site guys.


    Bow down for the best sport evah!

    • faceh

      I see no hockey here.

    • Tugex

      Fuck yeah meu amigo. e viva Portugal!!

      • Roberto Barreiro

        quantos tugas andam por aqui???? 🙂

    • Adep

      You spelled "gayest" wrong

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    #12 BOOM Headshot!
    #5 SONIC BOOM!

    • Ken

      #5 Had the Garlic soup for lunch.

  • Urban

    #7 Ball bag shots = LOL!

  • Squeak_Scolari

    #5 must have killer breath

  • Stephen Craig

    #4, #5, #10 is what I don't like about soccer. And I do watch major league soccer. When I was watching the World Cup last, the Italian team was the worst at it. There's this institutional element that if you look at a player too hard they fall down and writhe fake agony for 10 minutes and everyone seems to think it's perfectly cool.

  • Brian

    Jesus Christ, soccer has to be the gayest thing on the planet.

    • mazlow

      You realize you could do the same with Basketball right?

  • jay

    2-0 chive. great post + posting the feed on the main

  • Mikey

    lmao no wonder this sport will never make it in the USA.
    Be men not whiney lil bitches.

    • Turts

      That's right – cover yourself in pads and stay on the field of play for two minutes – maximum!

      • TellWell

        Even with pads we hit so hard bones break. Or… we could play soccer pretened to faint when someone passes us by…

  • dubya

    player used sonicboom, It's super effective!

    • LukeSkywalker

      I thought it was really bad breath.

    • V4Vendetta14

      I do love the reaction after he realizes how blatantly the guy is flopping…

  • Dex

    #12 a damn good Liu Kang impression

  • Zac

    Chive I feel soccer is the easiest sport to make fun of with embarassing GIF's. how bout hockey or real football?

  • mazlow

    Almost as much as in basketball?

    • TCUchiver

      especially the Miami Heat in the Championship games

      • Domanick Fabro

        you must be talking about Lebron James!

  • Brother Maynard

    #17 The Had Of Clog goal. One of the finest moments in American soccer history.

  • jjlib89
