    What do you all think? I don't want to be the guy that gets into problems with people because I ran up the score...Personally I think a 5 goal difference is fine.

    It depends honestly. If one player is being a douche to the other player (example would be me and moonbbad lol) he should have the right to run up the score on me. I personally don't think going over 5 is sportsmanlike though.

    Unless the other person doesn't really care.

    I don't think there is such a thing. It's the defense's job to stop the team attacking.

    There should be no mercy rule, where if you get up by a certain amount you end the game. But if you get up to 5 or 6 please be respectful and stop trying to score.

    A mercy rule is unnecessary. If you think that last goal was a little much, it probably was.

    Mercy rules are for pussies. I got my ass handed to two games in a row courtesy of Connor and abolishthefed. I never for a second thought they should stop doing their thing.

    I only say that though because of personal experience, like in actual sports games.

    For example, my team had to play the worst team in the league on their last game and they only had like 9 people show up.

    We could've easily won with like 20 goals. But instead only won by 7. LOL.

    We played a game this year where we won 14-0. Our goalie almost scored by dribbling the entire team.

    LOL... Yeah and even if a guy let's off the pedal what is he expected to do? Just pass between his backline until the game is over? Then the opposing team will get even more frustrated because of how easy it is to pass in the back in FIFA. If you attack you are more prone to mess up.

    Ah. I'm afraid something like that is going to happen to me. :/

    For some reason I can't move my right foot that well anymore, and thats my main foot. Fortunately, i'm ambidextrous. 8)

    "Play every game like it's your last.." No better saying than that is there?

    Good luck. A lot of MLS kids get picked up from small schools. I remember playing in school. First time I tried out and made varsity right off the bat at 15...LOVED IT...
