      I used to love EPL when I was in England 10+ years ago, but my interest has massively waned to the point I don't watch it any more now I'm on the other side of the globe.

      I enjoy the World Cup when it's on, but other than that I can't really get into it.

    Yes it's a boring game - many players are obvious cheats and not sportsmen at all, at least not in the traditional sense. I wish they would introduce a TV referee with video capture, as so many results are blatantly wrong.

    Sure, games can be boring, some leagues are boring. But when you watch a team you love and a team you are passionate about, then nothing about them can be boring. Also watching games such as El Clasico(Real Madrid & Barcelona) Those games are never boring, and rivalry games carry a lot of hype into the game which helps everyone involved with it.

      Also ManU vs Chelsea....Inter Milan vs AC Milan....Argentina vs Brazil are also thrilling. When they play, it go beyonds the means of a game.

          As a Rangers fan myself, those games are getting boring a little just because we play each other a maximum of 7 games a season. Which just takes the fun out of it. If it was 2 then it'd be the greatest game in the World.

    For some reason here in u.s., soccer isn't even popular when it's the biggest sport in the world. WorldCup is the best ever. I think baseball is boring because they are slow.

        Indeed superwags, rugby is an excellent game. And optimus are you trying to say that soccer is a slow game? Its only 90 minutes - how many hours does an nfl match take? (Granted there are only 4 quarters but when you factor in the stoppages, adverts, bulls**t etc)!

    I'm normally a fair minded, liberal kind of guy who tries his hardest not to get upset or be too opinionated on these forums. In this case though, I make an exception:

    You are all clueless idiots - football is the best sport ever invented - and all other sports, particularly NFL, are utter crap.

    There, I've said it.

    p.s. Anyone who doesn't watch football or have a team; Sunderland are the best.

    I love soccer.  It suffers from massive problems though.  First of all, the officiating is the worst I've ever seen at any level of any other sport and FIFA makes no attempts to fix it. 

    Second, the leagues pretty much suck because there are only four legitimate teams and there are no salary caps.  There is absolutely no parity of any kind and players simply go to the highest bidder.  This pretty much ruins it for me as I'm used to American football which has an amazing amount of parity, more than any other sport in the world in fact, and it has a salary cap.

    I enjoy watching however the culture around the sport bores me!

    I've known too many women that dream of being a wag
    Too many footballers get away with things because they have money.
    We recently had a documentary on TV and it transpired that our National Federation had hidden failed drug tests from the fans and media. Had that been Athletics or Cycling it would have been an outrage.

    Soccer/football is the best, it is the beautiful game. It is not only a sport, it is a way of life and is deeply ingrained in the communities of its supporters. It requires a lot of fitness, 90 minutes divided into 2 halves of 45 minutes. No time-outs either. While some may find this hard to believe, soccer requires intelligence and creativity from the players due to its highly fluid nature. No huddles to figure out which pattern they will run, no time outs to make adjustments or receive detailed instructions from the coach. Once the match starts, players have to be able to read the game and adapt accordingly to the constantly changing situation.

    Someone mentioned about parity in american football and American pro sports in general compared to pro soccer. Isn't it ironic how 'socialist" Europe employs free market capitalist practices with regard to the set up of professional soccer clubs and letting market forces dictate the salary levels and player trades while American pro sports employs socialist principles by employing salary caps and draft picks to ensure equity in terms of player quality and ability of pro clubs to compete on a level playing field.
