    Equally douchy is the "soccer hater" who, rather than weigh in on the hundreds or even thousands of non-soccer threads, feels the need to chime in with intellectually stimulating gems like "MOST BORING SPORT IN THE WORLD" (and, in ALL CAPS, no less).

    No, dipchit, I'm not offended. Just pointing out a douche when I see one.

    I don't care if you or anyone else likes it. In your case, I'm GLAD you feel this way as it's one less DB to deal with when I go watch World Cup games.

    You might want to bring facts next time. You wouldn't come off nearly as dumb.

    I don't come off as "dumb". But you should know....

    I stated earlier, I go to DC United games (usually 2-4/year) and I find it a great opportunity to drink a lot of beer. I don't hate it...but it is much less boring w/ a lot of beer.

    I hope the clean panties help you out today....

    And I'm not really a soccer fan. I like it, but probably around 5th or 6th on my list (tied with NHL). In don't like the NBA (and haven't watched a game in its entirety since Shaq played for the Magic), but I'm not daft enough to declare (in all caps, but I'll spare the board) it the "Most boring game in the world" because to do so would be . . . well, stupid. I find it contrived and it's athletes the most unlikable in sports, but that's my opinion and not a fact. You might want to brush up on the difference between facts and opinions as this whole pissing contest is based on your objection to my assertion that your views about soccer are merely opinion.

    BTW, I thought you were leaving.

    The AJC posted an update and they have almost 4000 founders members to date that total 9000 plus season tickets. The team isnt set to play for 3 more years. Id say thats a pretty solid start.

    Never understood the need some people have to bash soccer. Don't like it? Don't watch. And if others are discussing the sport and you have nothing other than, "it sucks" to add to the conversation, don't waste your breath and keep quiet, please.

    I love soccer, but find NASCAR to be worse than watching paint dry. Only thing worse than NASCAR on sports channels is bowling, in my opinion. But no need to bash either sport and the people who enjoy watching it. To each his own.

    Now, back to MLS expansion, I worry that there will be too many teams diluting the league. How many games are teams going to play in a league of 24? Play each in-conference team home/away and the other conference once for 36 total games? And then on to playoffs? That makes for a long season, especially given international windows and events. And unlike Europe, you can't play soccer in the winter in the US because weekend MLS games wouldn't last long head-to-head against NCAA football, and moreso with the NFL.

    Just call me a little leery. On one hand, it's great to have a healthy domestic league. On the other, there are those who remember the attempt at quick expansion in the lat 90's that almost killed the league back in the early days.

    Great post! Apparantly several panties got wadded up in this thread for simply stating it's a the world's most boring sport!

    Can someone post a link to a soccer message board so we can start college football threads?

    You are obviously baiting. You are the equivalent of a Seminole coming on here telling everyone how much the gators suck. Congrats.
