Fair point rafi, but nevertheless, Jewish kids I know from the NY Circle tend to be very involved in either hockey or football rather than soccer (i.e. making their own leagues, like I did for soccer). Football's also widely promoted in public schools here in NY.

Do you think the quality of a game improves with referees, since currently we make our own agreement-based calls? (even the Russians can't intimidate my Israeli friends when they're yelling at each other ) When I will try out for the team however, the games will be officially refereed.
