Reminds me of the penalty shot against the Red Wings last night, only less exciting.

Beckham has done worse.
 
2013-04-15 12:27:35 PM  
Wow... that actually exceeded my expectations as to how bad it was going to be.
 
2013-04-15 12:33:27 PM  
Yeah, because only in soccer will you see a guy botch a play due to slipping on the field...

Sheesh.

It doesn't suck because of poor skills, it sucks because of the pansy-ass diving, it sucks because of the "thrilling" 0-0 scores, it sucks because it's a children's game.

I'll take a 0-0 any kind of game(soccer or not), over football's 67 minutes of watching people stand around, while only 11 minutes of action. But hey, I'm not a deuchbag, so I understand.

What makes it even better is people like you not having a clue, yet still feeling they need to have an opinion in it.

When someone screws up in football, it's at least entertaining (e.g., buttfumble).  The only thing more boring than soccer is people playing soccer poorly.

I've never understood how someone could say Soccer is boring, but thinks games like football and baseball, with extremely low "playing to standing" ratios, are exciting.

If you took a baseball game and edited out all the parts where neither the ball nor any of the players were moving, you'd have about 20 minutes worth of footage.

I'll give you baseball (please!), but football is like watching a chess match - even the "downtime" is exciting if you can entertain the possibilities about what's coming next.

Actually, a football game is exactly 60 min.  Not 67.  And barring overtime in the case of a tie, there is no bullshiat, injury/dive time tacked on arbitrarily.  Yeah, let the officials decide when the games over.  I'm sure that's on the level.

Why have a clock if it doesn't matter anyway?  Soccer really needs to update to the 21st century.  Ref can control the clock from the field.  Otherwise, it will remain a kids game.

True.

But then again, soccer isn't some underground thing that needs more spectators.

I have a friend who was really into football.  After explaining to him why soccer isn't boring and having him actually sit down and watch a few games...  he now finds football completely stupid and theres really only 3 talented players on the field and most of the game is commercial breaks or replays.

/Just sayin.
//I am related to Bill Parcells, so yes, I have watched a lot of football to compare.
