I guess that’s because that’s ALL there is to watch on t.v. I mean everyone who loves soccer is making such a big deal out of it that everyone else also wants to be a part of that excitement.

    I confess, I’m a part-time soccer fan. My kids all play soccer, but I’ve never been one to watch MLS games before the World Cup. I don’t think it really matters, though, does it? If the sport is attracting new fans then that’s a good thing, right? My hometown has an MLS soccer team, so we’re already talking about getting to some of the games.

    The World Cup is the most popular soccer event, that’s why. They have a hard time making it to the finals mainly because other teams have been playing this sport longer than the Americans have, and they’re extremely good at it as well. Just look at Brazil.

    soccer is only broadcasted on TV when the americans play or when the local MLS team plays. if people want americans to become more supportive of soccer on scale close to or equal to the NFL, MLB, NBA, even the NHL, and college sports (football and basketball) they need to broadcast more games particularly the european league games. occasionally i’ll find a Manchester United or Chelesea game on but never Arsenal or Juventes. “short term soccer fans” are only exposed to soccer when it is pretty much the only thing on during the WC and they need to be exposed to more soccer even if it means going to local high school or college games to learn how amazing this sport is. I’m a die hard soccer fan and always will be b/c i respect the game and love it with a passion only shared with non-short term soccer fans.

    GO USA SOCCER!!

    it’s the same as why people only watch bobsled when the olympics are on. so that they can show support for their country.
