    Haven’t watched a minute. I can barely tolerate soccer no matter who’s playing

    Yes, the U.S. Women's team has dominated for a long time.

    Welp, they just got scored on 1-1... Agree @Kasey, these games are tough to watch, even as a fan of soccer.

    I think my husband has watched every game. I glance at it every so often.

    Not a soccer fan, but I am enjoying the world cup. At times, the game resembles a bit of a brawl. Lots of tripping, shoving, and a few take downs. Pretty cool.

    Daughter and I drove to Paris for the US / Chile game. Was cool.

    Currently enjoying the UEFA Under 21 Championships. All European teams, but a good glimpse of future world cup all stars. Not watching the women's teams though.

    The women are at least good. The US men's team is pitiful.

    I’d rather watch a “bad” men’s team than the women’s team. Pace of play and skill is a huge difference. Men are ranked 30th in the world, behind most of European and a good bit of South American countries, and that’s one of their worst rankings in awhile. Just need to look at the developmental leagues in Europe and South America to understand why the US is behind in men’s.

    Na bro, it’s been a hot minute since watching soccer. However, I do remember the hope solo jersey pull off when I was a kid

    @JRT812 that was Brandi Chastain in 1999

    Watched a bit of the end of the France-Brasil women's game last night. Went late so i'll try to watch the ending tonight - was tied 1-1. Have no idea of how the time works or most of the penalties. I make up my own reasons why this or that was allowed/penalized.

    THERE I said it! I WATCHED WOMEN's SOCCER. Neither proud, nor ashamed. Deal with it.

    My bad @Teddy bro... just remember a chick and thought it was Hope

    I like soccer and I love International soccer, but it’s very difficult for me to get behind this team. They beat a team 13-0 earlier in the tournament. That’s the equivalent of about 150-0 in football. I have absolutely no problem with them running up the score, but they celebrated every single one of the goals like they’d just won the World Cup. It was pretty disgusting. That, along with players kneeling for the anthem, the constant clamoring for equal play, and in your face feminism for the sake of feminism has completely turned me off. 
  • TeddyTeddy Posts: 5,399 mod
    @BoroDawg I thought them running the score up was pretty bad sportsmanship as well.
