Funny that you are still high on Ferentz yet you call soccer boring. Nothing is more intense that a scoreless game late between 2 good teams. The action never stops.
Don't know who is good in Iowa but I know there are some good club teams as I've coached against one from IC. Get right up to the field.
The speed athleticism and strategy with 500 plus passes per match leave football behind. I've held practice alongside football practice.. no much more action. Any hs football game has flabby players on the field. Compare that to 6 ft 170 pound athletic guys across the whole field.
Athleticism has nothing to do with the excitement of a sport. Eliud Kipchoge is the most athletically gifted human being that has ever lived but no one wants to watch a marathon for 2 hours straight.It has nothing to do with the athleticism or lack of it. Are you trying to tell me soccer is more entertaining than American football?!! What does Ferentz have to do with soccer? Why do you do the same comparisons for every argument? I don't get it.
I definitely realize there are good club teams and young players in Iowa. Doesn't change the fact that the sport will never, never hold water to American football and basketball in the is country, because those sports are better sports for TV viewing. I realize soccer is better viewed live but it is never going to catch on in this country, as much as the soccer enthusiasts want it to.
