Is television trying to cram soccer down our throats?
Does anyone watch this other than people from other countries where this sport is big? The field is too big; the scores too low, and just plain boring. Maybe they are trying to capture a riot live. Like a wreck at NASCAR. I love sports, but I'd rather watch curling. How 'bout you?
Soccer is not really a big draw in the US. So at least here, I don't think it is rammed down our throat--but I would say football is!
I totally see your point, the olympics showed that there is any amount of sports out there other than football.
I for one love mountain biking and couldn't wait to watch the race on the olympics but sadly that is the only time you will see it on the tv mainly because there is a constant stream of football and no room for other sports.
I wrote an article about long ago:

While it is famous worldwide, soccer is low in the ranks of favorite televised sporting events by most. Why? Should soccer get more American publicity?

There are a lot of sports now but not all of them have time slots in ESPN. Of course Basketball and Football need their airtime, but I think some sports should have less airtime (like baseball and soccer) and some should have more airtime (like beach volleyball). What do you all...

Is Baseball a dying sport?I think yes. World Series ratings are down by 65% in the last 25 years. Same goes for the All Star Game. Fox had its worst year in ratings for their game of the week in 2012 (averaged a 2 share for 24 games). Don't let the local TV deals or fantasy leagues fool you.

What is the greatest sports game you ever watched?It doesn't matter what the sport is: football, baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey or golf. Fans have seen a game or match that they believe to be the greatest ever played. Which one is yours?
