World Cup 2022: The World Cup is here, and football is still terrible to watch

ADVERTISEMENT

tHe’s 22 FIFA world Cup It started on Monday when 32 teams from all over the world came Qatar To compete for one of the most prestigious football (or “football” for the civilized world) titles. There was a lot of fuss and celebration around the games, as well as a lot of controversies, perhaps all of it an attempt to distract from the reality of how terrible it is to watch football.

football Like sports communism. It sounds really good in theory until you witness it in person. Then it’s all a bunch of people who are incompetent at their job (scoring goals), and fall to the ground as if they were dying while participating in a very corrupt system (FIFA). Waiting for a team takes nearly as long as it took communist governments to provide bread for their people. The only thing worse than watching football are the people who insist on watching it “road of the future” (just like the communists promised).

World Cup 2022: Foreigners thrive amid Qatar’s failures

As a former Major League Soccer legend (a two-time Morning Football League All-Star for Mr. Conway at Philadelphia Central High School, thank you very much), I truly believe that soccer is fun to play. It also takes a great deal of physical conditioning to take part in the “beautiful game”. But watching it on TV should be considered a unique form of torture. It’s just over an hour and a half with people chasing the ball down the field. It’s arguably the most boring sport to ever watch – and I say that too as someone who attended the 2018 World Cup in Moscow while studying abroad.

Perhaps the most exciting thing about football is the Apple TV series Ted LassoThis is because it doesn’t involve as much football as embellishing the amount of scoring that happens when it does. There is very little to get excited about watching the game on TV. Still, inexplicably, millions of people do. However, millions of people legitimately believed that communism would be a viable economic system that would lead to utopia, and we know how that ended up.

Even the long-running animated series The Simpsons He frequently ridicules the sport’s lack of entertainment value. in one clipAn excited crowd appears at a football match when players start kicking the ball. After several minutes of doing what football does best, kicking the ball and achieving nothing, the crowd loses energy and enthusiasm. The scene ends as the stadium approaches a deafening silence, Homer Simpson finally shouting, “Poor Ring!”

Another clip highlights the difference in the way Americans often view sports compared to the rest of the world. The cultural divide manifests itself in the enthusiasm of the international commentator compared to that of the American commentator. It is an indication of why football lags behind football, baseball, basketball and hockey among fans in the country and why only 7% of people identify themselves as “Avid fans”.

My criticism is not an exaggeration. Consider the game’s scoring history. According to statistics, of all the results of professional football matches ever played, the match almost ends in a 0-0 draw. 23,000 times! Statistics also show that the most common score in every professional football match has been 1-1, a feat that has happened 32,477 times. But perhaps the most shocking case of all is that nearly half of all professional football games ever played contained sum Only two goals were scored.

Imagine watching the NFL and about half of the games each week ended with a score of 7-7 or 14-0. Or watching a baseball or hockey game, and 50% of the contests ended 2-0 or 1-1. Why would anyone keep watching?

Advocates of the sport continue to emphasize the skill of the players, the beauty of the passes, and the strategies used. It’s complete nonsense. A person can get all of that from any other sport while getting the entertainment that comes from offense and team scoring.

The so-called beautiful game is really an unwatchable walk most of the time. Europeans can get it. Let’s stop trying to make it relevant to the US.
