I'm aware you can watch a play develop. You can do the same in hockey, which, as I said, might well be my personal favorite, and almost any sport where you wish to put an object into a goal past a keeper. And in pretty much all the other ones, the pace is faster and there are more goals.
My point was that the outcome is binary. Either a goal is score, or an effort is wasted. Usually an effort is wasted and maybe there's a corner kick as a consolation prize. So when a goal is scored, it's a near-sudden thing that doesn't have the same build-up as third and goal or getting a hit with runners in scoring position. Yes, baseball has its instant offense with a homerun and football has pick sixes that come out of nowhere, but that potential is a spice, not the whole game. There's a ratcheting up of the narrative that doesn't exist in soccer.
You are pretty much showing you have 0 understanding of soccer.
