Forgive me for getting political, but saying Football(soccer) will never succeed because “most Americans” prefer the NFL does not hold much weight with me. “Most Americans” voted for President a reality star. Why should their opinion matter that much?
I love the Broncos but I can’t even watch them on a weekly basis.
If you need a break every 5 minutes to “get a beer, go to the bathroom, etc.” I feel sorry for you. Again, i reference “most Americans”. Hockey and Soccer are great sports because the action does not stop. Both Baseball and Football are play based, they do something, stop, then do it again. Hockey, Soccer, and Basketball are time-based, they do not need to stop. they also do not need “talking heads” sitting in a booth babbling nonsense to fill time while play on the field has stopped. I realize that time stops in these other games and commentators do talk but the stops are random and not built into the rules of the game.
In fact, when I had season tickets to Hockey, one of the most annoying aspects was “TV timeouts” and I am not even going to get started on going to a live NFL game.
I am in a rant-y mood. I just got back from Colorado. maybe proximity to @Miqque affected me.
