RottenEggs: World Cup ? Sorry I'm too busy not caring .


As far as interest and viewership, World Cup soccer makes the Superbowl seem like open mic night at the local cafe.

OK I admit to troll feeding too. Although he hardly shared his thoughts. He just stated he does not care about the most exciting tournament of the most popular game in the world. This in a thread about that very tournament.

Including half-time, that's an hour and 45 minutes to "run" six miles, for an average speed of 4.138 MPH. That's barely above a walking pace. Perhaps I'm jaded, but I'm not impressed.

Awferchrissakes, bad math. Try 3.428 MPH. Even worse.

It's a pretty skewed stat to criticize like that. The world cup officials run a lot more during the game than most athletes in other sports. Baseball players are a joke by this metric. A ballgame lasts about 3 hours and the players run less than half a mile. That's less than 0.2 mph. NFL receivers and cornerbacks (positions that run most) run about a mile and a quarter over the course of the one hour game. It would be difficult to walk that little in an hour.

You know what sport involves running a lot? Running.

Yeah, but even then only marathon running and some longer road events involve a lot of running. The world Cup Officials run a 10k incidentally. Most running sports require fast(est) running a shorter distance.

Don't mind me, I hate running. I hated it when the Army made me do it, I hated it the one time I ran a marathon (most emphatically, never again) and I hate it now. :)

If people want to jerk themselves off to the fact that players/refs move around a lot more in their sport of preference, it's fun to point out that all that "running" is the equivalent of milling about for two hours.

Well then, I hope you've had your fun. Obviously you don't have much fun playing or watching sports, or uh, "milling about" as you consider it.
