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.
Why because most of the guys cry, yellow cards are givin to easily and it slows the game down! The forwards are the ones I like because the run the whole game and thats the toughest thing about the game
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.
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.
I like to play games, I do not like watch them. Any of it. 100% boring. The same as if somebody was eating a cake, having a party, and I would be sitting watching it??? No fun. Never ever watch any games.
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)!
rugbys better then soccer not the nfl! Soccer players are the ones that arent tough enough to play rugby! American football was losely based off rugby. took the scrum and made it into o/d line and made them pass the ball.
It depends. I live in Canada and MLS is boring. But I prefer watching La Liga. Yesterday I watched the game Real Madrid-Barcelona for the Copa del Rey and it was a wonderful match. Usually the Champions League pack some great games too. But the best games are during the Euro and the World Cup.
I used to like to watch Chelsea vs ManU when Ronaldo was there. BUt I still like to watch those two play. Drogba rules on one side and Rooney on the other side of the field. Who's your favorite player?
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.
Depends on what part of the planet you come from; where I come from football (soccer) is a religion. Some fans lives revolve around football and it can also evoke very strong passions and emotions in them.
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.
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.
Two of the largest Sports in the World today!!Which would you say is the better Sport!?Personally i could happily watch Football and never get bored, i think it is the best Sport in the World and involves a lot more Skill and technique than Basketball and other sports in the World today!!I used to...
Sports enthusiasts - what is your favorite sport of all time and why?I remember growing up watching every sport known to man because my Dad loved sports so much, especially baseball. However, since being married to a man quite opposite of my Dad, who is not such a sports enthusiast, except...
