      Too right you can!

      In Britain it seems to have assumed a sort of quasi-religious status.  I was talking about this to an acquaintance who's as indifferent to football as I am and jokingly said to him: "You mean you couldn't give a toss about 22 overpaid, oversexed men kicking an inflated pig's bladder around a field?  What the hell is WRONG with you?"  lol

    I hate all sport in the media. Even the news (has a sport section) cribs sport into news time.
    Anyway, looks like Australia won't be there for long! That may offer us some relief!

    Hey, it takes dedication and years of practice to fall dramatically to the ground at the first hint of a boot, clutching the correct shin and grimacing like you've just been given your first enema!  Give those footie guys the credit they deserve!  That's why the English watch the matches in the pub, they need something to take the edge of the crushing boredom and predictable disappointment.

    If you guys hate it so much, can't you just change the channel or ignore it? neutral

    Soccer is very exciting in the way that extra inning baseball games are exciting.  Do people around the world take off work, eat hot dogs, and drink beer in the mid day to watch soccer?  If not then I guess I'd have to go with Baseball as being less boring.

    Football... American Football on the other hand is more exciting because they actually score and do so in less time and you get to watch guys beat on each other instead of run around in boxer shorts and knee highs.

    Yeah I'm not much of a soccer fan.  But hey to each their own.
