    Re: This never happens in baseball....

    I would love to write a list of my 100 favorite things and everyone who didn't agree with it had to move to Europe.

    #Murica.

    I would like to add, I have and do still play soccer today. But no way in hell would I attend a soccer match or even watch a soccer match unless it was the USA in the World cup. The game is hella fun to play. You know why? Because everyone that I play with has one thing on their mind: score. Why? Because it's fun to score. It's fun to kick a ball and race someone for it for a goal.

    You know whats not fun? Running back and forth for 90 minutes and praying to God you keep the ball from going in.

    I will admit, if soccer scores averaged out to be something like 12-10, I would probably watch it more. But watching a soccer match, to me, is like 90 minutes of foreplay with no happy ending.

    In addition, I am not ashamed that thinking "my way or the highway" is what causes Tavern Hawks. I would so much rather hang out with a Tavern Hawk than a Hawk Hawk. Because if they were a Hawk Hawk, I would never hang out with them in the first place.

    I have my doubts baseball will be considered a major US sport in 10 years. It seems only old foggies are the one's watching it on tv and they're dying off in a hurry.

    shoot, I hardly consider it a major US sport now.

    I don't see it EVER not being a top 3 sport in the US. I think it's comparable to the NBA in terms of viewers (no, I haven't done my studying)

    However, I believe baseball would be much more relevant today if the Cubs/Yankees/Mets/Phillies/Dodgers/Giants were "better," as all those teams but the Yankees having losing records (but the Yankees...but they are in 4th place in their division)

    As a result of that, 6 of the 10 most valuable teams in baseball, according to Forbes, aren't attracting their fans, which make up the majority of the MLB fan base.

    As a Cubs fan, I haven't paid much attention this year, I'm sure Mets, Phillies, Dodgers, and Giants fans are the same. I only pay attention to important transactions, really.

    I think as soon as the Dodgers, Cubs, Yankees, and Phillies start taking over baseball again, the sport will become as relevant as it was in the late 1990's. A sport thrives on it's franchises, and unfortunately, the best franchises are crap this year.

    It's like the Bills, Browns, Jaguars, Chiefs, and Bucanners leading the NFL - it would definitely hurt the NFL's marketability, which is exactly what's happening to the MLB today.

    In my opinion, a lot of it is marketability. NBA was nothing between the Jordan-James era. MLB is nothing between the "rebuilding" era.

    As I finish this rant, soccer has no marketability and #soccersucks

    Re: This never happens in baseball....

    How would a soccer match that ended 12-10 be entertaining? I mean maybe once because it would be so ******* weird, but games are exciting because scoring is difficult, it's what makes people go nuts for every goal because you know you have to work so hard for each.
