To which, Soccer in fact is a sport. It has physical exertion, (running 90 minutes with a 5 minute half time), foot work/passing skills are needed to get around other players. And finally it is a team sport. Where it goes against other teams.

Reasons for voting decision: This debate was pretty much pointless. Con was fighting an uphill battle but neither side used great reasoning. Basically, the argument came down to the definition of sport, which should have been defined right away. Con should have examined the definition more thoroughly and shown that Pro does not provide an operational definition of "physical exertion" or "skill", two terms that are in hot debate when considering whether competitive activities such as Video Games or Chess are sports. Pro, you did not construct a good debate or good arguments, but Con should not have given up so quickly, or so easily.
