A hugely important draw that completely changes Mexico's outlook in their group. Also, it had the save of the tournament thus far. Also, Mexico became the first CONCACAF side EVER to take a point off Brazil in the World Cup. If you didn't like the last bit of that game, then you probably would think that a football game where a team marched it down the field in the last two minutes and then got stopped at the goal line as time expired is boring too, because nobody scored there either.

Geez, subby, that was weak.

I'm a casual fan at best of the sport, but even I know that Mexico playing Brazil to a draw is farking shocking.

Nigeria/ Iran was everything that people dislike about soccer.

Mexico/ Brazil was an amazing game, where neither team happened to score.
 
2014-06-17 07:46:34 PM  
I know next to nothing about the sport but I watched it because it was on at the bar. Mexico's goalie clearly deserves some kind of medal.

No, no, that was Mexico and Portugal. This was Mexico and Brazil.

¡Viva El Tri!

I'm glad my heart is strong enough to handle games like this. Between this game and the US game, it's been a ride.

If Mexico gets out of the group, it'll be amazing. Looking really good so far. Ochoa is probably a deity by now. Chicharito? Yeah, he's a little pea. Very disappointed in him.

Between that match and the first half of next one, we went about 2 1/2 hours without a single point being scored. One of several reasons that it's tough to get Americans to give a shiat about futbol in the long run. Still enjoying the World Cup, but DAMN.

I don't really care for fruitbol that much and ending a game in a tie drives me absolutely insane but that game was pretty great.  Ochoa was insane. Whatever the sport its great to see someone put up an effort and perform like that on the biggest of stages.

He, he. I hope this happens every day.

Been kind of fun watching some games, but I will never understand how a 0-0 tie, or any tie for that matter, could be considered "an amazing game". I mean, the World Cup is the biggest tournament in the world in any sport. Us Americans melted down when the MLB All Star game ended in a tie.

Once the knockout rounds happen they do some not quite soccer thing to break ties. Penalty kicks or rock paper   scissors or something

Look, if you don't want a tie, score a farking goal in regulation time, mmmkay?

Brazil is looking like crap. My Brazilian friends are disgusted with this team. They need to get their shiat together, if Mexico can pull off a good win against Croatia the Brazilians could find themselves looking at Netherlands instead of Chile or Spain.

/yes, a lot of friends

If no one had scored at all for the entire game up to that point then yes, it would be boring.

Its people trying to convince us how popular it is when its proving over and over how dull it really is, most of the time its just clearing the ball out and very little action.

Haven't watched one second of world cup, haven't met anyone at office of over 100 people who even care that its on.

Remember Game 7 of the 1991 World Series?

Of course you do. A team from Atlanta was almost relevant. For 9 innings, pitching ruled and Georgia mattered in sports. But that game was scoreless in regulation.

Then, the Twins won in the 10th inning, and Atlanta- much like every time since 1865- were back in their usual role as losers.

Yawn, poor attempt at getting rise but keep putting a rapist up as your hero and sorry that game was boring for the most part and I love baseball.

Good for him.  Reminds me of Kristers Gudlevskis' (Latvia) quarter final hockey match against Canada at the Sochi Winter Olympics.  He faced 57 shots to Carey Price's 16, and Canada (barely) won 2-1.

The difference is that someone (probably) actually wins in that scenario. The draws and stoppage time are about the only thing keeping me from jumping straight in with soccer. Call me crazy, but I don't want to watch a 90-100 minute game just to have it end in a tie. Yes, American football ends in ties, but it's extremely rare. And I have yet to have anyone adequately explain to me why and how stoppage time makes more sense than just stopping the clock on a dead ball.

0 0 ties don't make me hate soccer. the fact that if a team is goes up 2 0 in the first half, that the game is effectively over, and the final 45 minutes is essentially played for nothing does...

If a hockey team is up by 2 goals in the third period, or a baseball team up by two in the ninth inning, they other team has a slim, but realistic, chance...

Soccer, forget it, the winning team just turtles up and kills the rest of the game...
It's almost like they need a rule that a team that is up by more than one goal has to play with 10...

Hey, they might not be able to score but they have great fundamentals.  Ball control, good defense and tactical passing are the root of the game.  It doesn't matter if they can't dunk, that's just for showmanship that takes away from the... wait, were we talking about soccer or the WNBA?

Ties used to be a way of life in American football and hockey.  Now they have pansy ass overtimes and shootouts that have to be completely fair and let everyone have a turn at winning/choking.  A tie may be like kissing your sister, but it isn't losing.

That's what every soccer game looks like to the rest of us, basically looks like they are playing not to lose but in soccer, unlike other sports, they can clear the ball out most of the time to where it is a giant game of keep away.

Almost every other sport has games of huge comebacks every year but soccer doesn't allow that since its field is so huge.
