If we all grew up with soccer on TV like the other big sports in the US, it would be hugely popular. Between the men's and now women's World Cup I'm learning a lot more about the game and I like the format a lot. Faster than our sports for the most part. 90 minutes of action with only one intermission for half/commercials...IMHO that is why it doesn't fly here, not enough money to be made on commercials.

Beats the hell of of football and baseball with 4 minutes of commercials every 7-10 minutes. Not to mention with football you see what 10-15 minutes of action in a 3 and a half hour broadcast! http://on.wsj.com/8hCzWL

I guess that depends on what you consider "Action". Everybody's opinion on that is going to differ at least slightly. My girlfriend and I's take apparently is completely different...

I disagree though. I grew up with Baseball on TV and I think that is the one sport lamer than soccer. Talk about garbage... lets watch a bunch of dudes stand around for 2 hours. I guess guys "jogging" about is a bit more entertaining than the former, but not all that much.

Well, it's "action" in that the ball is pretty much always in motion and an attack on the goal can come at any time, completely unexpectedly, without the cursory each team carefully setting up on their own side of the ball before each play.

Completely agree that baseball is the lamest of the big 3 major American sports.

Society has outgrown baseball IMO. The pace at which we all live now is much faster than it used to be 30, 50 or even 100 years ago when baseball was at it's zenith. Used to be everyone loved to go to the ballgame as a social event back then but now many have no time to "waste".

Soccer is like a hemorrhoid. You realize that it will probably pop up again, but you are none the less relieved when it goes away.
