Why doesn't soccer have any traction in the United States as a spectator sport? Frankly, it's because we think it's BORING. The games can last for 3 friggin' hours without anyone scoring anything! Granted, baseball can be pretty low scoring sometimes too. But still, when a baseball team scores 8 runs in one game, it's a pretty regular occurence, whereas a soccer game with 8 goals is one for the record books! How do we make soccer a more aggressive, high scoring affair without fundamentally changing the spirit of the game? Personally, the 1st thing I'd change is get rid of some of the offsides rules. Recently, I was watching a PBS documentary about one of the FIFA club championships games. Liverpool seemed to score a couple of goals but were suddenly declared offsides. It seems like these kinds of rules prevent teams from being more aggressive in attacking the goal. Eliminate these rules and you'll start seeing the soccer equivalent of basketball's "fastbreak." I mean, each team already has a goalie. That doesn't make it hard enough? What else could soccer do to amp up the adrenaline?
