From my limited experience working some racing at IMS, I found the Indy cars very interesting but the NASCAR stuff was pretty damn boring. Part of that may have been the fact that Indy cars all got brand new engines and chassis this year so they were tweaking them constantly the whole two weeks I was there and getting faster and faster.

Only good thing about soccer is watching the GOAT, Ronaldo, in his prime.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

yea nobody said that at all. or anything close to it. plus i blame euros for the rise of flopping in basketball, so it is still lolsoccer's fault.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Diving/flopping is quite rare in the top leagues. Lol Spain a bit, but not like Riverman would know the difference between Uruguay and Portugal if his life depended on it. There was as much diving/flopping in the NBA playoffs, but no one will ever bring that up as a reason to not watch the sport because generally people who are capable of more then lolsoccer are smarter then Riverman and know the NBA is a good product.

You'd have to get rid of college sports to do this (I can't see multi million dollar academies for soccer but not for nba/other sports). Because of how popular/fun/corrupt the NCAA is, again, lol riverman.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

flopping in basketball is just falling to the ground though

flopping in soccer involves feigning a near life-threatening injury then resuming playing an intense professional sport literally seconds later, as if every single person watching is braindead

there's a difference
