I'm just saying that it's not because they don't enjoy the sport and lose interest. There's a lot of peer pressure to drop out of a "pussy" sport and participate in a "real" one, like football.
Even a guy like Chad Johnson has said that if soccer paid as well as the NFL, he'd love to play soccer. He even warms up on NFL fields with a soccer ball sometimes.
