The USA is a country made up of people from everywhere on this planet. People brought to this country the best their countries had to offer, the dynamic interchange of ideas in America have created amazing things, soccer never made the cut – we play soccer
in grade school and high School, but it’s just not as exciting as the sports we have created in the USA, this includes Lacrosse an indigenous American game which is very much like Hurling, an indigenous Irish game.
Lacrosse is nothing like hurling.
You'll also notice that all the popular sports in America are one's from their continent. So they could be the best in the world?
My view on why America doesn't get football is that they try to apply the philosophies of their other sports to it. Football is all about individual brialliance not about how many sacks or yards someone carried the ball. Sure tactics play a part but the best
bits happen outside that. In addition probably some of the best players in the world probably can't even spell tactic nevermind understand them but just have an eye for the game. When I lived in America i went to a few training sessions and what struck me
was how regimented it was. People were practicing the basics over and over. There was noone doing dragbacks or step-overs. I could be way off base here but that is what I found.
One more thing, permit me this little rant. Skip the rest if have a sensitive disposition.
For goodness sake it's called extra time not overtime and we don't have MVPs. It's player of the tournament and this is not to be abbreviated to POTT and a penalty kick is not a PK.
Okay I'm done thanks, I needed that.
