Joe Willie White Shoes Posted November 26, 2022 Share Posted November 26, 2022 Every four years, I try to watch this sport. I really do. I tried again yesterday. It was one of the most boring sporting events I have ever watched. 90 minutes of play with a handful of scoring opportunities and 5 shots on goal. I'm sorry, but it is boring. I was literally dozing off. A 0-0 tie or a 1-0 game can be exciting if there are scoring chances, great saves, etc. This game took place mostly in the middle of the field with very few scoring chances. I just don't get the attraction to the sport. The World Cup gets a boost because of nationalism and it taking place once every four years ( after all, how much track and field and gymnastics does anyone watch outside the Olympics). For me, it's a snooze fest. And then you get to knock out rounds when tie games are settled by the one of the biggest travesties in sports - penalty kicks - a test of luck and overcoming the yips. Imagine a tie game in the NFL playoffs being decided by a FG kicking contest or an NBA Final game being decided by a free throw contest. That's what penalty kicks are. It's moronic. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
