It's the same as every sport. It's boring if you don't "get it". I don't get American Football, I've seen it on and I find it boring. I do get football - it's not about the goals. It's not about the chances. It's about every kick and if every kick doesn't interest you, you don't "get" football. I'd find a Norwiegen Division 2 match pretty boring I guess, but I could still watch it. I just wouldn't be too disappointed if the phone rang at the wrong moment. However, a couple of years ago I found I couldn't watch the Liverpool - Arsenal FA Cup final because it was just too intense.

Test cricket. Now there is a boring sport to watch. Even more so than the sports on UK TV that I also find boring - golf, snooker and (if there are no hot Russians), tennis.

I find soccer (FOOTBALL!!) fun to watch and play.. nothing better than watching your favourite team or even your country playing whilst sitting with some mates and drinking beer.

Just like any other team sport I suppose :)

Seriously i understand Us football and it is boring because of the stop and starting all of the time

Too many adverts on the TV too!!! Sports over in the US can be dictated by the adverts which is sick. Soccer, which is blatently called football!!! Is a great sport. Yes some games can be boring but, most games are not. The Us Major league soccer is a poor league, where as the European league excel much more.

like many americans, i also find soccer terribly boring. I am a huge baseball fan though, and i realize many non-americans think baseball is boring. Anyone who says baseball is boring is just looking at it from a quick glance and has no idea what the game is really about and will never appreciate it. I think this works both ways. I'm not going to pretend to understand the inner workings of soccer. From what i've seen, its boring as hell. I can respect what other people like though, as long as they respect what i like.

i was in mexico on wednesday and was having lunch at an outdoor cafe, and apparently there was a soccer game on.. all of a sudden we hear this huge roar coming from all directions and people start running through the streets yelling "goooooooaaaaal!!" .. it was pretty cool.. i'll give soccer fans that much, they are very passionate.

first of all its Futbol not soccer thats a american term used and futbol is one of the best sports in world and if u havent played the game dont judge it by its cover. If its so boring y does the whole world plays it. Futbol is a game of passion and excitement. Trust me futbol is a very hard sport to play as welll.

I find soccer boring because its a slow and low scoring game. I use to find hockey and baseball till last years playoff, and found it be exciting. In north america, soccer is not a market. Would be hard to find north american sports in euro on tv.

It's the most popular sport in the world largely based on tradition.

Your country is in the finals, don't be surprised if the whole country watches.

Just like the Superbowl a large portion watch for the commercials, or because their friends are watching, region is playing etc, often not because they care about the game.

And American football is much more entertaining than the low scoring, low shooting, low oppurtunities soccer.

P.S. "Most popular sport in the World" is a really weak argument.

baseball is boring as fcuk.

agreed with PapiChuloNica.

most people who don't enjoy watching football are probably americans and havnt been outside of US, or i mean just don't like football because of their own reasons. Same way that you probably think that inches, feet, yards, that bullshlt mesearment system is smart/good.
