staypuft242: Shang-High: 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.


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.

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.

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