Soccer fans of the Huddle have challeneged this subforum

I find it funny that you are talking about three of my four favorite sports there.  MLB is easily #1 while soccer, NASCAR, and College Basketball kind of rotate the #2 slot depending on what type of mood I am in and what time of year it is.

 

Oh, and there is nothing better than a great pitching duel.  =)

 

Haha well I'm glad you have a diverse outlook! I personally don't enjoy baseball but don't have an issue with it. 

 

Just can't stand the "soccer is boring" argument that is thrown out so often.

I agree with you there.  I think every single sport can be boring on the surface to those that do not understand the finer details of it.  Most people just do not get that and instead bash the sport and its fans when they are ignorant about the strategy and whatnot.

The sport is growing rapidly and becoming the most popular among ages 12-24.  You don't have to like it but just stop spouting ignorant poo. You're a dying breed. 

 

 

 

 

lol I had a friend in 1980 tell me that.

Ironically I am currently jumping back and forth between four sporting events: Sox/Rays, USA/Turkey, NASCAR, and the UNC baseball game.

Anyone who says nascar isnt dying is lying to themselves. Just take a look at the 600 that was here in charlotte just a week ago. I may be a casual person who got to go for free, but there were plenty of seats available, half the camp sites empty, and thats not including the entire turn 2 grand stand that they try to hide like the Jacksonville Jaguars do with their upper deck. Isnt that the biggest, longest, most popular race NASCAR has? Soccer has gained more and more popularity in the U.S., way more than NASCAR has since 1990. This forum would be more active as a soccer forum than Nascar, there is just more going on year round that you can talk about compared to NASCAR. (Sorry for long format sending from mobile)

Edit: I forgot to add that Bruton Smith is talking about destroying that turn 2 grand stand so that it doesnt look empty when the race is here. That eliminates around 20-30,000 I believe and brings down that race track that isnt even full below 100,000 (which thats what wiki says, doubt thre are that many seats not including boc seats and camp area)

I don't think they even sell the turn 2 seats anymore. There was a time where those were filled. I'm a NASCAR fan too (Brian Vickers) and I knows its not dying its just regressing to the mean. It had a huge explosion in popularity and now its getting back to the people who enjoy the whole aspect of racing, not just the wrecks. But still Soccer is experiencing a similar boost in popularity right now.

As one of the most active posters in the Nascar thread I say soccer can have it. The Nascar talk here is minimal and there are other forums with good Nascar discussions.

Although I feel the soccer thread will also become a ghost town after the world cup.

Most of us care more about our teams than World Cup.

Hardly. We'll move from league season to Champions League/Europa. That's the great thing about Soccer. the offseason is minimal, and during it there is so much to talk about with transfers, coaches being sacked etc etc.
