In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
Overall, you're okay in my book, Wheat, but this thread title is stupid.
But not nearly as stupid as SOCCER.
It's a light in the loafers activity that bores the paint off walls.
Why don't you go talk about it on the Revs page? Oh, because there's no activity there? Is that because people from Boston don't give a ratsass about soccer?
NAS, we agree on something!
It's a european sport (more on that in a sec). The only reason it's gaining any traction in the US is because the sports network's finally did a TV deal.
That being said, maybe they're out in front of this business-wise, maybe they're not. But what is a fact is there are alot of europeans that have migrated to America over the past 10 years and many, (like my neighbors) are hardcore soccer fans. My neighbor just bought a brand new 90" Smart TV just for the World Cup. I heard him in there the other night yelling in Portuguese lol.
Wrong Bimmer. It is "THE SPORT"not only in Europe, but Africa, Asia, Middle East, South and Central America.
And if you do the math, that represents 99.5% of the world's population. It is no wonder that the World Cup is the biggest deal on the planet. The Super Bowl doesn't even make a dent.
