Also - everybody says Americans are fools for not loving soccer the way the rest of the world does which makes me dislike it even more. I used to really like playing indoor soccer though - very fast and physical.
Keep in mind that your criticisms apply to any sport.

I find football and basketball to be boring. Football has tons of time wasting, and standing around doing nothing. I'd like someone to take a stopwatch to a game and see how much actual play occurs during a '60 minute' game. Basketball is just as mind numbing since scoring doesn't matter until the last two minutes of a game.

Soccer is like hockey in that you kind of need to 'learn' how to watch it. How frustrating is it to hear a non-hockey fan say that they "can't follow the puck" or " why do they just dump it in"?
