Default Re: Thank you non-soccer fans.

Ive tried not to do it, but I will say it is hard because die hard soccer fans can be kind of snobbish, posting things on there fb walls like 6 ways to not sound like an idiot during the world cup, and using this time to post how much dumber American football is than soccer and that soccer is the greatest thing ever.

I have no issues with soccer, I just didn't grow up with it. I love my irrelevant world sports of football and baseball, but I have always respected soccer and the wc is a once in four year thing, and way bigger than the Olympics.

If that's so then why are the Olympics looking at the possiblity of moving their games away from Brazil in 2016 because of the mess down there?

I'll admit...not really that into soccer. But Little Man wants to watch the match tonight, so guess what we're doing. He even said "but Mommy, I thought you didn't like soccer". I told him that if he wanted to watch the USA we'd watch it.

GO USA!!!

Bc they're way behind schedule...same uproar was made from FIFA

I admit, I dont give a hoot in hell about the Olympics so I'm overly biased but I get why others care...I just dont.

I think with the popularity of soccer with the younger demo and the decline of baseball in that same demo you are going to see soccer eventually overtake baseball in our country. Baseball is still doing ok now but they are losing the younger fans. They've got to do something to speed up the game or make it more exciting.

Maybe allow the spectator to control the players as if they are playing the game? That's about the only way to speed up the game.

i meant way bigger as in viewership, if you asked the world would they rather win the WC or the Olympics or asked which was more prestigious id imagine most would say the WC. It is the premier sporting event

That makes my point even more. What we have here, basically, the most watched event in the world, indirectly saying conditions there are acceptable.

I think they Olympics are far more concerned bc their viewership is diminishing and after the sub-par Russian venture, they're in alert mode.

Saw some of our friends on NBC the other day... they are traveling with the American Outlaws. Should be a fun day today for that crowd.

I'd follow soccer more if I knew more people that followed it. That's the fun part of following sports, talking about and watching the game with other enthusiasts. Before I lived here I followed NFL exclusively, that's what we watch out west... but here I might as well have been following soccer, nobody cared. I've since converted to collegiate athletics.

Just joined last week!! They are based out of British Bulldog pub. It's in the shopping plaza where Columbiana Grande movie theatre is. Should be a crazy atmosphere there tonight if anybody wants to come out and watch the game with a bunch of diehard fans!!

I grew up playing soccer. I never really watched it until college though and I only dedicatedly watch the USMNT and a select few MLS games (preferably Sounders when they are at home). If Nashville's FC team gets big enough, I'd definitely go to a few games. Definitely going to the next friendly or qualifier in the Music City.

Default Re: Thank you non-soccer fans.

So okay, I tried yesterday. I still found that game somewhat boring. I know the rules of soccer but strategy is something I don't understand. I know the US hired that German coach and he is supposed to be really good, but the whole game it appeared that Ghana was better coached and had some sort of game plan as to what they wanted to do. The US seemed to just kick it to the other end and hope someone would out run the defenders. I didn't see the first goal but the second was a good play but can you rely on corner kicks the whole time. Not trying to bash but was what I saw wrong. Was Ghana not running plays or some sort of motion offense like basketball and US hoping to score on fast breaks?
