I love soccer - especially when played at a high level.
I loved playing soccer before injuries. ...and soccer injuries took me to golf - which I also enjoy!
Having played makes it easier for me to appreciate how much skill the top players have, especially their touch and passing.
I also think NFL makes a great sofa sport (especially when you record it and can fast-forward through all the delays/commercials/etc.).
Soccer, on the other hand, is much better...
