    Well the scantilly clad chicks are an attempt to increase spectators.

    If the game itself were worthy of attention it would not need the eye candy.

    Kinda like that fantasy league footbal thing...

    Surely not a sport worthy of mention.

    The most boring sport in the world is basketball. How many times can you watch some random tall guy put a ball in a basket? They score like 90-120 points per game, and there is like, what 23,901,486,720,348,756,204,378,560,847,508,234,705,283,745,678 games a year?

    A team could lose it's first 20 games and still win the championship.

    The only sport I can think of that is more tedious than soccer/football is cricket.

    Because you're either watching shitty teams, a shitty league or singularly shitty game.

    Can't based the whole sport off of any one of those solely.

    Soccer comes in many different styles and flavors, a concept that is rather foreign to Americans who are used to their sports being played one way, all the time.

    For example - The English value physicality (strength, speed, stamina)....the Spanish put emphasis on intricate passing and individual skill with the ball, and the Italians favor strategic tactical play coupled with sudden, devastating attacking moves.

    The MLS, America's soccer league, has not yet found it's style or identity because it's still such a young league.

    If you want to see good soccer, you need to know what you want to see. All of the leagues above have provided everything it takes for anyone who actually wants to like this sport to....you know....like this sport.
