This is a ridiculous thread.
You don't like soccer, so you're just saying idiotic things about it.
Soccer is great, really. I don't know how American people can call soccer boring when they watch baseball.
And please don't compare the stadiums enviroments. In soccer, at least in Portugal, the crowd sings all together, when the home team scores is a total madness, because a goal, is a rare thing, not like a TD.
Today, I'll watch my team, FC Porto(2003/2004 world champions), surely Britpats knows it, and I absolutely love to go to the stadium. And in American Football, even the guys from PTI, said that it is one of the sports which is better to watch on TV.
Trust me, in soccer, when you know all the players playing, it sure is a great sport, of course sometimes is boring, but like everyother sport.

1) As someone with 567 posts, you should know this does not belong in the Patriots Fan Forum, but in Other Sports. Or even better on Jetsinsider, but I digress.
2) I understand that you don't like to watch futbol, and that is all well and good, but the intellectual dishonesty of some of your "points" is uncalled for.
-Futbol strategy is as complex as football, if not more so. If you think routes are hard try off the ball with 10 other guys, penetrating a world class defense
-you could have just as easily chosen Ben Roethlesberger as a face of football
-the fan experience is second to none at the Bernabeu, Camp Nou, Anfield, White Hart Lane, etc.
I could go on and on. Just because you don't understand something, does not make it broken.
What we can all agree on... is LETS GO PATS ON SUNDAY!
Most people don't know the true story how youth soccer became big in the U.S., but Stalin was behind it.
After the Korean War, The Soviets couldn't figure why the U.S. was so disappointed in the outcome since the U.S. acheived their initial objective of getting the communists out of S. Korea.
Stalin was told that Americans hate ties. So Soviet agents were sent to the U.S. to get the Americans to stop playing the violent ground aquisition game of football and replace it with a non contact sport where ties are celebrated.
The Pats will be my first sport love forever, but the World Cup got me hooked on soccer (sorry) as my #2 sport, along with hockey. You're not watching soccer (or hockey) and expecting an offensive explosion...it's more about the near goals, the strategies, and the excitment when a team finally figures out how to beat the defenses and score.
You got hooked on soccer watching that snoozefest? Can you explain to me what the "strategies" are in soccer, especially since they lead to so few goals?
I love both sports, but i have to say the MLS is a joke. Soccer players in the us are way to one dimensional, you never get to see players doing flashy moves. Even i find myself bored with the US soccer.
I despite soccer, but I think the thing I hate the most about it is how most of it's followers act like it's such a wonderful, sophisticated game and constantly talk about how superior it is to other sports. I hate soccer snobs basically.
