I don't hate soccer because of those dives. I just simply find the sport boring as shit to watch. The fact that they are a bunch of divers just makes me laugh to no end.

I'd love to see a curler dive to the ground in pain just to see what the call would be.

I could see how soccer might be fun to watch if you had a country to route for, but I'm Canadian and, well, you know. What do we have?

I've watched soccer and I've played soccer. Bo-ring. It's the field. It's just way too big.

You have to watch more College ball. Less BS, better refs, not as much talent yes but more team play.

I also like to say that no Juventus players were seen in the making of this very old soccer blooper reel. The Nesta dive is my favourite though.

soccer is boring, football is boring, curling is boring, baseball is boring, tennis is boring, the vast majority of basketball and hockey games are boring, chess is boring, handball is boring, skiing is boring, car racing is especially boring.

but any one of these games can also be incredibly exciting if there is importance to the game and everyone is playing hard. context is crucial, and it's always fun to watch the best in the world compete if they bring it.

anything is boring when the players aren't trying, and everything is boring if it has no meaning.

true, except for the ncaa tourney. i stopped betting on it about 4 years ago or so and now find it much much more enjoyable. i stopped rooting for my bets and just started watching awesome sports. march madness is tense enough without adding a cash risk. now i can just enjoy the spectacle of it.

I can see how people find watching soccer boring. You have to understand it to enjoy it. But if that same person tells me that baseball has more action... I love to play it but watching in can be insanely boring.
