This thread is somewhat related to the World Cup thread.....only because of the subject matter, the quick exit from same games by the USA, and the lack of enthusiasm for the game in this here US of A.
I was listening to a talk radio show on Friday and the commentators were saying that the US should change the rules of soccer that is played here in the states. The reason.....increase the scoring opportunities.
Face it, America.....we can't compete at the level of those other countries, so why not make changes for our internal enjoyment? Most Americans who are only very marginal soccer fans would rather watch a game that is 7-5 rather than a 1-0 game or a 2-1 game. We like scoring.
OK, purists.....bash me. I can take it. But I know I am right.....the game in the USA will remain confined to soccer mom suburbia unless we open the scoring gates.
What say you?
