tonight was the match in london miami vs new york
I had never seen a match on tv before, so this was the first. i watched the whole thing and cannot understand why it is so popular in north america.
i understand that it is really tactical and some of the hits can be pretty big. BUT it is the slowest moving game ever, it has no flow, each play lasts ten seconds and then they meander about waiting for the next one. Also why the fuck are there so many people involved in it, ok there is a defensive team and an attacking team, but there were about 40 people who came out, people were being substituted after 1 minute having never touched the ball or done anything significant.
is it a game that is entirely tactical and you marvel at the coaches inguinuity, or am i completely missing a trick.
the main problem for me is it is so different to european sport and football and rugby is what i have grown up playing and loving.
