you know why soccer has those ads on the jerseys?

it's a trade off for not having to watch commercials while the game is on

A cursory google search says he's looking for anther place to go probably cause he's tired of being the only striker on the spurs.

American Football isn't even a fucking sport. It's sponsorship with running attached. Sometimes.

not a striker, he's a wing. but he is their best goal scorer. dafoe is okay and adebayor is inconsistent and clint dempsey well he's like a star reserve and Captain America.

it's actually because as one of the best players in the world SPURS could probably sell him for 30-50 million but the chairman said "nah, it would be nice if we could contend for the league title and we can't do it without bale"

something about R. Madrid wanting to pay 100 mil euros for that guy but that's probably #batcountry

i just hope they don't do it, guy's awesome

OH BUT BRO WE DON'T HAVE ADZ ON OWR JERSEYS LOL ERUOFAG SOCAR IS BOERING I LIEK BASBALL

i know right the play stops every 20 seconds for a huddle/advertising break it's horrendous there was a study that showed that the average NFL game, if you take everything out between the whistle and the snap, is about 15 minutes. OVER THREE HOURS. it's just fuckin ridiculous. And it only pretends to be as tactically rich as real football. It's such a dumb asshole sport it really is i'm so tired of it

I mean with baseball, if you consolidated all the time that the ball is alive , you'd probably get comparable numbers, but at least there isn't some manufactured sense of excitement to make up for it.

I can't watch it. It's slower than cricket, which is the #2 most boring sport.

I don't understand why people don't rise up and destroy their TVs. Advertising makes everything unwatchable in the US. I remember an episode of the Simpsons which went on for like an HOUR due to the fucking adds. Or at least it felt that way.

11:4 is the standard ratio of programming to commercials.

i'd say it's less since if we're just going to tabulate when a ball leaves the player's hand and when it finds the mitt

i mean advanced stats have now made it so you don't even have to watch baseball at all to assemble a roster. eventually it's just going to be simulated by computers

besides it seems like the only people who like it are stuck up assholes that are nostalgic for a past that never existed

outlaw baseball

also i've found the vast, vast majority of people who hate soccer because it's "boring" often say "yes, I like baseball why do you ask?"

because you're a jackass that's why

case in point this fucking jackoff:



Will moan for 10 minutes about how soccer is boring and then without even having any sense of self-awareness follow it up with a blow-by-blow account of the "thrilling" Dodgers game.

veird. i only like to watch baseball if i'm at the game.

i don't care for watching any sports, but i always enjoy watching them with a crowd (family or an enthusiastic establishment (not the same as loud, drunk and obnoxious).

Problem with soccer is America's top athletes don't play, so the home talent is thin. Games are boring because the skill level is inferior of the other major sports.

It will always have that stigma here until athletes shun basketball, football,baseball and hockey for soccer.

Baseball is king. Nothing on earth better than sitting at a game with a beer, not talking to a. Soul, and enjoying the gorgeous day.
