    I just can't watch soccer because all the drama overwhelmes me.

    Re: Do you intend to watch the World Cup?

    I find soccer boring with worse acting (on fouls)than the NBA. with all the lead in tournaments to wimbledon on the tube and the NBA finals, I would't watch soccer by choice-period. Maybe if they get rid of that stupid score killing "offsides" rule I will watch it.

    soccer fanatics have spent billions trying to make this sport commercially successful in the USA. it has failed and of all the major sports a kid can play, soccer is the one most likely to lead to surgery. BTW, my father was at top 5 HS soccer player in the USA and was a two time All-American and my niece went to a top 10 D-I soccer school on a full soccer ride.

    The game of football isn't just about high scores - it's about defence, attack, individual skill and team play. Having said all that, my preferred game is rugby but I will still watch some of the World Cup matches.
    Hey that is your opinion personally to me sitting and watching a 2 to 3 hour game ending up 0 to 0 is boring as hell...I would rather watch paint dry.

    Whole different ball game and why don't you identify yourself as a female to the members of DP?

    What does it matter?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    1 or 2 LeBron James swooping in to do a facial dunk over some Spur is more exciting than most 90 minutes of soccer

    Greatest sporting event ever. Love the world cup. Football is not hard to get, I never used to watch, until I started to travel and see how much of a great sport it is. Been all through Europe, S. America, parts of Africa and Asia. Football is the global unifier, you will always have a great conversation if you love the game.
