I do think there's merit to the thought that most people don't recognize the little things in a game until they're pointed out.

For example nowadays during NFL season on sundays everyone and their uncle are armchair-offensive coordinators and whatnot; I don't think the average casual fan was as educated on/aware of some of the finer points of their sport(s) maybe 10-15+ years ago.
I mean, I get his argument that the presentation to American fans isn't the same as the NFL/NBA broadcasts, but I still don't think that matters. Soccer isn't the same as basketball or football, it's pacing is different. Hell even it's timing is drastically different than anything available in major American sports.

I think it's overly simplistic to say "Soccer is really complex, Americans don't get that, so they don't like it". I know what those players do is tough, I realize it's the same as elite-level play in any other sport. I just don't care

It's a really different game than Football/Basketball/Baseball, and some people just don't like it.

only thing that could have topped this set is if Jay-Z and Kanye came out singing African American Gentlemen in Paris.

this was epic.

the internet in general and fantasy sports is prob somewhat responsible for its current level of extreme popularity but the same thing would have happened to baseball or basketball or even soccer if one of them had been the #1 sport when the internet changed the world. i just don't understand why people think fantasy and gambling only exist for football and therefore explain its popularity.

Just watched 15 minutes of the Dre/Snoop set.. simply amazing. I've been to an absolute ton of concerts and thats like my favorite set I've ever seen.

Anywhere to watch whole set on replay? Couldn't find it on Coachella site.

this. football's popularity is in part because it requires very little fan commitment. i do think the spread and the fact that people bet all the games helps/helped, but it would still be #1 regardless.
