Soccer is boring as fuck

More skill required than "football". Also more viewers.

I hope Seahawks spanking some Broncos ass raw doesn't make people hate MS by proxy since they're Seattle based, especially since most people seemed to have wanted Denver to win.

Men wearing tights and some sort of tampon, and bending over in front of some other man. It's almost as gay as figure skating.

Well, not all sports can be as manly as a bunch of dudes in knee high socks and short shorts humping each other

At least in soccer there's a higher chance for someone to get kicked in the nuts.

What is with this football vs. soccer bickering? It is getting old.

#69 Posted by hoosier7 (3967 posts) -

I watched a bit with a Canadian who tried to explain what was going on, i'll stick to real Football (soccer), the NFL seems a little boring, too much stopping and starting play.

If i wanted something similar i'd watch Rugby, at least they don't pause after every play and don't faff around with all this girly padding and helmets.

Also are the crowds meant to be so tame or was it just the TV feed? I've seen livelier Snooker crowds, at least there's plenty of chanting in Soccer and sometimes some jumping around.

The crowd wasn't that loud because they were playing on a neutral site and the crowd is always quieter on tv than in person

I wonder how many calls the police will receive of domestic violence in the loosing team's region and how much it will cost the city of the winning team due to parties and riots?

Stay classy America.

That's Canada bro.

Seriously, it seems like that stuff goes on in Canada more than the US. When Boston beat the Vancouver Canucks in the Cup, Vancouver rioted. Hell, they rioted when NY beat them in 1994.

For you American System Warriors. Is American football match supposed to be this slow and boring? I'm really trying to keep myself entertained, but they're just standing on the pitch doing nothing 80 percent of the time.

American football is the second most boring sport on Earth. Only golf is more boring.

And you're right. It's 3 second of play, then 2 and a half minutes of a bunch of fat guys getting back into position, a bunch of old guys peering into a TV screen to try and make a call, and Gatorade commercials, only to repeat ad nauseum.

The only reason I tunein to watch the Superbowl is the office pool. Common Broncos!

Sure, if you don't understand and have never actually played the game. Nice opinion but happily I don't agree

1st of all they're on a clock and 2nd these fat guys can run circles around most people. You have any idea how much strength AND endurance it takes to play on the either sides of the line?

Football is one of the most brutal major sports in the world. The average player last 4 years and when these guys are done playing their bodies are never the same again. Like it or not, people should respect this game.

no kind of football can compete with synchronized underwater tiddly-winks for women.

Well that was one of the worst Super Bowls ever. Yet still much more entertaining than the vast majority of soccer games.

It's a neutral site for finals in soccer too bar the odd time where a host nation or club manages to make a final, the two main cups here in England are played at Wembley which is neutral and have much better atmospheres.

You never seem to get the impromptu banter or inventiveness from fans in the US too.

I'm not necessarily against football or anything, but I'd just like to point out that I don't consider this to be a reason for a sport to deserve respect. The players put themselves in that position, they know the risk, and they're paid obscene amounts of money to do it. They do it for 4 years and make more money in those 4 years than 99% of people even have a chance to make in their entire lives. And the reason that there's so much money there, for them to get paid, is because the entire league is a bloated showpony of corporate sponsorship, specifically designed to draw as much attention as possible, to keep people distracted from the far more important shit that's going on around them. Because a population that's well fed and entertained doesn't resist when their government fucks them. The ancient Romans and Greeks called it bread and circuses. Modern-day America calls it welfare and professional sports.

Well again, i know a tame crowd when i see one. Call me when there's something close to a some of the Football derbies or finals.

#83 Posted by VendettaRed07 (14012 posts) -

Thing about American football is that its fun to watch when its close. Who wins/looses is what makes things exciting. The actual play or what your viewing isn't all that interesting. l still really like it and lm a giants fan, but l think theres something wrong with a sport where its literally almost unwatchable if one team dominant in a match.

Football on the otherhand, is fun to watch almost regardless of the result. Dominant wins can be a joy to see. but w/e

my God, system wars, NOT a fan of the "American" Football. noted LOL.

:-D Now seriously, I'm actually waiting for a match to start. I never watched Superbowl before, so who knows, it might be fun.

cool, i hope you enjoy it. just some guys throwing themselves at some other guys trying to knock their head off...good wholesome fun. once you learn the rules and pick a team games can become an adrenaline shot.

I'm semi-familiar with the rules. I played NFL games. Pretty fun.

Btw this horse entrance... the fuck? :-D

that's that U.S.A. gaudy for yah!! i actually thought while watching it..."Iggy is spitting at the tv right now" lol.

game was crazy...i did not expect the Broncos to get gorilla stomped like that smh XD

no! you put on a baseball game by mistake....the Superbowl was on the Fox network :)

(ooooo take that @TheEroica :p)

no really. when you learn the game, offense and defense, the players and player positions, know which star player is going against whichever other star player(the match-ups), audibles and team adjustments done on the fly. then there's a lot more to pay attention too when it seems like its going slow. right now you just see guys lining, going crazy for a few seconds then stopping for a half a minute, then going at it again. but you don't know whats really going on on the field yet. that is, if you ever decide to give the sport another chance lol. not everything is for everybody.

Futbal and Football are great sports in their own right. Stop the fighting over games most of you have never played at a high level (college/semi pro).

Lol super bowl, strong poverty show.

Champion's league is watched by tens of millions more and of course Playstation is present around the field.

#88 Posted by coasterguy65 (6252 posts) -

Nah I liked football when they used to be able to actually hit each other, without drawing a penalty, and delaying the game almost every play. I half expect the NFL to start making them tie flags to their belt soon, and make tackling illegal.

All pro sports athletes get paid obscene amounts of money but very few have to endure what they do. How many soccer players have died or been paralyzed as a result of just doing there job? I'm not saying respect the sport just because of it's brutality but also because of how complex the game actually is. I respect all pro athletes and sports because they have jobs that less than 1% of the population has the skills to do at their level.

The average salary of a football player isn't as high as you might think. The super stars get a lot but there are 53 men on a roster and only a hand few are getting paid the lions share.
