@amir.alavi: American footbal is a very funny game for me or a person who watches it for the first few times.

If you think American football is funny, you should see "Australian Rules Foorball" -- it's an elyptical field -- three goals at each end -- and the funny thing is that there don't seem to be any rules LOL

Soccer it may not be the best game to watch, but honestly much better than many sports that is common in America. as you see many sports have time out. The reason is the TV channles want to broadcast advertisements and make money. The first year that I watched Super Bowls I was surprised. IS it a sport or a show??!

BTW, American footbal is a very funny game for me or a person who watches it for the first few times. There are bunch of Buffalos stacking up and someone sneaks the ball and passes it and they make a score of 6!! After that, the winner team have a penalty which is always on target. the funny look goal is so big and everyone can score that penalty. I don't know what is the goal of that penalty and why it has 6 points! and the most common question is why it is called footbal

@Webby81: However why the heck is this article on EETIMES, it has nothing to do with technology.

"Man does not live by technology alone" ... to paraphrase the good book ... even engineers need to think about other things (like bacon, beer, and even soccer).

@pd99: I think this is a cultural thing. I would quite literally prefer to watch paint dry than watch American football...

I'm from the UK -- I moved to the USA 24 years ago -- over the years I've actually grown to enjoy American Football -- I'm not a rabid fan (and I usually don't really understand some of the more complicated rules -- "if the wind is coming from the west and the man with the tight-end is standing on one leg, then...") but I do quite enjoy watching it with my 19-year-old son.

The Author does not understand soccer, but the rest of the world does.

Go post it on some sports site and see what response you get then.

@Rich: This blog is more exciting than any soccer game I ever watched.

It's just a case of "different strokes for different folks" -- I'm not a huge soccer fan myself, but I think it can be quite exciting (especially if you've bet money on it :-)

I think this is a cultural thing. I would quite literally prefer to watch paint dry than watch American football and the verbal diarrhea from the commentators is worse than toothache. If you want a blow by blow account of the match, in the UK, listen to the radio commentary; if you want to watch the match watch it on television.

There are dull matches however, in most matches, everytime the ball gets into the penalty area there is the chance the ball will go in the net. A battle of minds between the defender and striker. This is good in premier league and at it's best in the world cup. Your local Sunday league game does not quite reach the same level of artistry.

Whether it is being British, but the only thing which annoys me is the deliberate cheating (handball, deliberate fouls).
