So you're saying, things that are not popular in PShome, is not popular in real life either?

 

I love sports, but use other channels/places to talk about it.

 

 As i said earlier, go back to school.


You took that way out of text,    more like you need to go back to school.  We are only talking about soccer.  Just talking about N.A.  Lol 


LOL And goodbye....

Did you not see the disclaimer at the end of my post? It was an unsupported opinion to make a point.

 

This is a mute topic at any rate. They aren't bringing back the FEVA event or at least I'd be shocked if they did. I think Home users would love any sports event that actually represented actual pro leagues and teams. They'd sell a ton of licended jersey's I'm sure if they did. 

 

Home has gravitated away from that sadly. We get mostly digal mall content these days which is where Home has repositioned itself.

Well, I don't see it here, especially in N.A.  Sorry  I don't see it around Home either this time around.

I heard Kasey Keller (an American goalkeeper who played in the English Premier League) say on a television broadcast last night that one of the more common things he heard, in regards to American sports, from his European teammates and others there is: "In America, you invent your own sports that are only (or primarily) played in your country and then the best team in that sport for the year is called 'World Champion'". What's up with that? lol With soccer, we have to catch up to the rest of the world first, then maybe someday start to learn what it takes to become a real "World Champion".  

 

It is a growing sport in America for sure, especially in certain pockets of the country (like In the northwest), but it may never become what the other 4 major sports are here....for a whole variety of reasons. One basic reason is probably that Americans have short attention spans and seem to like a lot of scoring....and definitely don't like tie scores for a final result. Another might be that we dont start kids in soccer academies at young ages. Yet another reason might be that the MLS season champs can't ever call themselves "World Champs". lol

 

I'm just glad that we are getting full-time Premier League TV coverage in the U.S. starting next season. Smiley Happy

I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!

I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!

Soooo close... but awesome effort team USA!  Oh and Tim Howard is a BEAST!!!!!  Best goalie performance of the cup so far with the most saves (16) in World Cup history!

 

 

 

Despite being out of the cup, I can't wait for this weekend's games... with powerhouse national teams facing off each other like Brazil vs Columbia; Germany vs France; Netherlands vs Costa Rica; and of course Argentina taking on the mouse that roared... Belgium - should be some great football to watch!

 

 

Oh and for anyone still living under a rock that still feels no one in the US cares about 'soccer' and the world cup... not only have the Neilson ratings and the millions of TV viewers in the US proved you wrong, but how many sports and sporting events get people in the millions accross the country in places like Kansas City, Chicago, Tampa, NYC, etc  and even deep inside the heart land of Anerican football, Texas, to get all dressed up to support their team and head out to outdoor parks to watch the games on a big screen instead of the comfort of their home... yeah, no one in the US cares about 'soccer'.

I suppose you can sit on the couch and watch guys hit balls with sticks... but you are really missing out on a very special event if you choose to ignore the thrills of World Cup viewing parties.

True... World Cup Football is a great deal more popular than the Stanley Cup, even in the United States. Smiley Surprised

 

_6 million viewers = Game 5 and final game of the 2014 NHL Stanley Cup

18 million viewers = Game 5 and final game of the 2014 NBA Championships

18 million viewers = Game 6 and final game of the 2013 MLB World Series

 

18+ million viewers = USA vs Portugal in just game 2 of Group Play leading to round 16 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup (not even a deciding playoff game mind you).

 

  • And unlike those other games, this one was not on a national broadcast network, but instead on a basic cable network (ESPN).
  • Not only that, but what's missing from that are the millions that watched across this country in football stadiums, parks, bars, etc.

 

On a global scale nothing even comes close to the World Cup except for the Olympics, and even that falls well short by millions of viewers.

 

It's estimated this year close to a billion people will be watching the final World Cup match, or almost ten times as many that watched the Super Bowl. Smiley Surprised

 

Yes, America was late to the party, but there is no denying it is hands down the most popular sport in the world.
