I was at the gym last week, and on every TV there, they were showing either the NBA Draft or World Cup soccer.  I actually was trying to decide which of those two things I gave less of a **** about.  And that internal debate was a long, drawn-out, monotonous affair that I'm pretty sure ended in a tie, much like every soccer game ever played.

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!!!

NBA, Tennis, MLB are all great. 


I can't get into Soccer though.



The truth is you're not a sports fan. You're an NFL fan. There is a difference. 


It's like what Joe Dante once said about the difference between a casual movie watcher and a movie fanatic  - there are those who love movies and there are those who love the movies they love.

Soccer is an amazing sport.  To say that soccer is boring is very "American".  Football is king, as it should be.  After that it is a crap shoot and each to his/her own.

If Romo could throw a football like I hit a golf ball we would never lose.

Hockey is amazing, those guys are so talented. Too bad it comes at the same year time football does. But then there's a buttload of games all week.

Seeing games in person is best and that's the only way I will watch baseball. Beer helps.

Personally prefer to watch the nfl on TV hands down... But local high school football is fun to go to.

I enjoy watching just about all sports, except soccer.  It just doesn't do anything for me.  I'm not a big NBA fan until the playoffs start, but I love college basketball.

Football (college and pro) would be my #2 favorite, but nothing comes close to baseball.  It's always been my opinion that people who don't like baseball don't realize the "cerebral" component of the game.  Those are people that think baseball is simply pitching/hitting/catching a ball.  To those of us who played the game at higher levels, it's much more.  Much like football, a good baseball player will know the opposing pitcher (or hitter if you're on the mound) and his tendencies.

Yeah true but baseball is a bore on television--much better live game. And, their are far, far too many games in a season--just like most sports. That is what makes the NFL so special.

While football and the Cowboys are definitely the sport I live for watching and following, I am also a sports fan in general.  Grew up playing baseball, soccer, basketball, golf...hell even did some track and field.  I guess I just like the competition aspect of the events.

I've watched racing, golf, bowling, gymnastics, volleyball, poker, darts, etc just to pass the time in the past.  Not even close to the adrenaline and rush that football brings, but to see people compete has always been a cool thing in my book.

I try watching baseball but it is so boring. Judging by their plummeting ratings I am not the only one.

The NBA sucks - give a "star" the ball, watch him dribble for 20 seconds then fire up a shot. No thanks. Preseason football would be okay if you can forget you're watching practice. I can't do it so 10 minutes of that is enough for me.

The "soccer is boring" crowd most likely enjoy the evolution of NFL football to Arena football - 80% passing and if you happen to force a punt you'll win. The NFL has gotten worse over the years - a 51-48 game doesn't do it for me - last guy with the ball wins.

Baseball has always been great, but the season needs to end in September. But this thread explains to me why Yahoo opened fantasy football on Memorial Day. Have fun debating which RB to draft for 3 months. sleep.gif

You haven't watched much NBA recently have ya? The Spurs have tons of ball movement and they just won it all.



I think Baseball should go back to a 154 game season. It's not a significant shrinkage but traditionally that is what the season was for years. It would also help the season end in September and you could move the playoffs up a bit.

Re: World cup, Baseball, NBA draft, when does it end??????????? 


I like all the sports.... i just don't spend time in front of the TV watching anything besides the NFL....sometimes NBA playoffs or March Madness.

I played soccer through HS and a little in college...so I had the world cup fever.  I know the lack of scoring kills it for most.  The people who love it see the back and forth as tension building and a battle of wills building.  To a point- I get it.  90% of the guys on the field have about the same talent-so your imagination, creativity and then steady nerves play in the blink of an eye play into winning and losing......that's why people lose their minds over a 1-0 game.

  I can see why some don't enjoy it. 

 But when we see a technically sound, hard hitting struggle that is tied 0-0 at half, old school football guys love that type of game.  Granted- we don't want to see 16 of them.  Soccer is a lot like that when it's played on the biggest stages.
Skill'n-it since 1973.

there is a reason football (by which i mean football, which you guys incorrectly call soccer) is the most watched game on the planet.

My team (there is a give away in my name and avatar) scored a 90th minute winner at Wembley to go up to the Premierleague.  How is that not exciting?  A lack of scoring can be just as interesting as lots of goals.  The US?Belgium game is a good example.  You get good and bad games in all sports.  the interesting ones are the close ones... that your team wins.

I often get criticised at work for being into the NFL as my colleagues find that "boring".  i call them uneducated.  What do I call you guys who say football (sorry soccer) is boring?
