I've never understood this frame of mind. Why?
Do you mean other then because it's boring?
Why? What makes a low scoring game necessarily boring?
isnt it pretty obvious? Its because there is no scoring and nobody likes a tie
I just don't understand why low scoring automatically translates to boring. By that reasoning we should all like the Arena League better than the NFL, and a Shaun Alexander one-yard dive for a TD would be more exciting than a big hit or an interception because it increases the score. There are plenty of exciting plays in a soccer game that don't necessarily translate to goals.
I couldn't care less whether or not people like soccer, and I'm not going to try to convince someone that they should enjoy it, but the 'low scoring=boring' reasoning always sticks in my craw.
