Brandi Chastain's winning penalty shot and later genuine celebration was sexualized by the media; she later appeared near nude in men's magazine Gear.
Later coverage often emphasized players' looks. Coverage and overall popularity of women's soccer did not increase after the 1999 World Cup, though many were hopeful it would. Race/Ethnicity In late 2011, the English National team/Chelsea captain, John Terry, was accused of racially abusing another English player during a match against the English club Queens Park Rangers. The kicker...(pun not intended)..... the victim was the younger brother of his English National Team TEAMMATE, Rio Ferdinand The offense, which consisted of a string of 3 expletives (including a racial slur) not appropriate for any setting, especially a sporting match, was clearly caught on National Television and used as evidence in the court proceedings in Terry's trial Zillmann's
Excitation-Transfer Theory Excitation-Transfer Theory states that excitement experienced from one stimulus can survive in a reduced state and increase arousal in either immediate or delayed stimulating situations.
The behavioral response in the new situation may be of different valence than the arousal in the initial experience.
Transference of arousal can affect behavior by increasing positive behaviors (enjoyment and happiness) in pleasant situations.
Or influence negative responses (aggression and violence) in unpleasant situations
Thus following the upsetting win, Masry's post game arousal was transferred into immediate negative-behavioral responses in an effort to punish the visiting Ultra's previous politial protests, and resulted in the "Port Said Said Stadium Massacre".

Journal of Language and Social Psychology, 29(3), 253-260. doi:10.1177/0261927X10368830 Halone and Mean (2010) argue that sport is not just the act of playing the game, but rather there is an intersection between the real world and the field.
They look at sport through a macro lens suggesting that the social issues that happen outside of sports impact the game. race/ethnicity THE OUTCOME:
Terry was found not guilty in a court of law after it was determined that the prosecution could not prove Terry had directed the statements as an insult as opposed to an inquiry as he claimed. The English Football Association (FA) levied a 4-match ban and a £220,000 fine on Terry following the trial. Terry was also stripped of his national team captaincy, which eventually led to his retirement from the team. Soccer by Kickaholics Anonymous Kickaholics Roster Richard Wright (Captain)

- Soccer has been played for 3000 years or more!
- Britain is considered the birthplace of modern soccer
- Football Association created in 1863

- International popularity led to creation of FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) Sam Foulds, soccer historian, remarked: "The result of a soccer game is not the end of the world, and the history of American soccer is not exactly the history of America. However, the United States is a nation of immigrants, and soccer was a pastime of many of these people. As is true today, most played without giving much thought to the future or to the past of the game. Soccer provided momentary joy or accomplishment and playing the game was most important."
