    This is why ’Murica lost interest in boxing and will never take an interest in soccer.

    Last year there was an incident in Brazil where the referee had been paid off and did a dishonest call. Player didn’t like it. The referee stabbed him to death. The audience stoned the referee.
    Every so often, some group riots over soccer in the EU.
    Beats me why soccer inspires violence. I used to play league soccer and it’s the most boring ball game ever created. Add arbitrary rules like “offsides” and it becomes hopeless.

    Soccer inspires violence because it is so boring. Imagine watching a game where 22 players are running around and can’t get the job done (scoring goals) for 2 hours. On top of that the announcers are so bored that when there is a goal they spend 5 minutes yelling GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Just so they don’t have to continue giving the boring play by play. I’m joking guys. There can be a lot of elegance in the flow of the game.

    I can’t think of a single sport for which you could not build an argument similar to that and claim that it is “boring”. I would start with baseball and American football (aka Merkin handegg) but I have to leave to work.

    How could watching other people play games (other than on an occasional lark) be anything but boring???

    It all depends on your understanding of the game, if you truely know the sport then it’s not boring, Until I was instructed on ice hockey I found it very confusing and a little boring. I now love it ;)

    Exactly! And that extends to most team sports, not only soccer and hockey (and baseball and handegg).
