Wow. This is NOT roomy!
So Gus Johnson is to MLS what Dick Vitale is to CBB? And therefore your point is valid?
Quite the active imagination you have.
LOL at most of you clowns who think baseball is exciting but soccer isnt.
Don't get drawn in rrpt2 ...don't do it.
Always talk about the pitch and how it looks
I am not a huge fan of Soccer, but I love the World Cup and usually watch our the qualifiers etc. I have been to games at Chelsea, and Barcelona. Those were two unreal experiences. I have been to DC United and Red Bull matches, and they were blah. It felt like going to a AA baseball game because that is what it is.
Americans are also stubborn and have a complex that if they did not invent something, or at least have the best in the world playing here they won't watch it or give it a chance. MLS has done a nice job with what they have, but Americans will never love the soccer being played here.
you're half right
While that's true but if you go to some of the friendlies that the european teams setup in the summer are packed and pretty good atmospheres. If we got soccer at its highest level, people would come out.
I enjoy watching soccer. I wouldn't call my self a huge fan, but I like it.
A big problem with soccer is the fact that last week's match between Mexico and the US ended in a 0-0 draw. Not only did no one win, no one even scored. Your average sports fan isn't going to watch that. I
That's badly oversimplified. Go to a game in Seattle or Portland and tell me it's like a AA baseball game.
While they may have great fans, stadiums, and atmospheres, the talent level in MLS is lacking compared to the major soccer leagues around the world.
Can we please build the United a real stadium btw?
There are much better pictures of Paraguayan soccer fan Larissa Riquelme out there. I always enjoy her promises to pose nude if Paraguay wins. BTW, I'm glad they've won.
The atmosphere in Portland and Seattle really isn't too far behind the atmosphere in similar-sized stadiums worldwide. If you're just comparing the level of play, then yes, there's a definite difference.
Point is that people can support soccer here even without true world-class soccer.
Hey, let's talk about tennis and handball and some other sports that aren't play for or by real mens, too.
lol at soccer claiming better looking girls...a few random hot girls from the Hong Kong Sevens I was at 10 days ago...
yeah...if you ever get the chance, go, it was worth it
Jackie Robinson isn't dirty. This isn't Pack Pride.
As opposed to...Skins fans?
Was quoting this
Lol. I play rugby, I live in Europe, i played in the Dubai 7s once, and I wish that were true. HK 7s, like in Dubai is a major expat social event that draws all expats in town - it's not really representative of rugby fans.
The second pic were dudes.
1st and 3rd pics were the same sluts

lol..wut...those are the exact people who go to those games..so, yeah, they are rugby fans.
I know I am biased but in the past couple months have been to Ireland twice for rugby and saw Pro 12 games in Galway and Limerick, and went to the Ireland-England game a month and half later and the quality of girls is much better than you see what is going to "football" games....
I know when I was in London two years ago for the Aviva Championship which was the same day as the Champions League finals, the soccer fans greatly outnumbered the rugby fans, but if you like Chavs, then yes, football has better looking fans
If you are an American who calls soccer "football" you are a douche.
I'd suggest that less than 30% of the crowd at the Hong Kong 7s know the difference between a ruck and a maul.
