You have to admit. Soccer is pretty dry in the US. Ive been there sevral times and never ever see anyone playing the great game called soccer.
The top sports in teh US as most oif you know are basketball hockey, football, and baseball.
anyways why do americans hate soccer? mainly because its "boaring" to them. thats what i think. it usually takes them over 45 minutes to score in soccer and a match can produce 3 goals on average.
americans like sports with high scores and ongoign action, but that doesnt make sense because they like baseball..(ahah get the joke?) but thats another topic.
most of you know, Pele came to the states to try and revive soccer, along with players like ccryuff maradona, beckenbaur, and that italian who played for the cosmos (he played striker), and george best. but after these guys left, soccer just became dry again. then theres beckahm. people say he can revive soccer in the us, but i dont think he cant as he isnt as good as pele, best, cruyff etc.
i have to admit the american soccer team is pretty good, but they keep getting raped by teams other than concacaf members. i.e world cup 2006, copa america 2007. the best team they can beat is mexico, although they did beat sweden a month ago.
soccer here in canada is growing specially with immigrants coming from south america italy, spain, portugal, germany, africa etc. but why isnt it growing in america? are the 4 big sports blocking it? does the MLS need to have the same structure as the Premier League?
what do you think.
