I don't mind a little change of pace but I do not like it when ESPN shows soccer for a week, Winter X games for a week etc. They are all good for a minute but non traditional sports for a week gets old. Anybody else get tired of them on so much?
I know you few soccer guys like this Euro Cup, I am just asking for the majority opinion.
Soccer ratings on ESPN now top MLB games, and in some cases it isn't even close. I'm not saying I like it, but you might as well get used to this trend.......ESPN doesn't really have a choice logically/financially, they're going to broadcast the sports that draw the biggest numbers.
I just mean the volume mainly. MLB, NBA or even football from non familiar teams every day would get old. Once or twice a week would be great for a variety.

X games are awful. I'm cool with soccer. Not really a fan, but at least it's a real sport.

Ha! I got downvoted for asking everyon's opinion.... nice one!
I am thrilled Euro Cup is on ESPN, and it's definitely longer than a week. My reaction displayed.
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
Heaven forbid they put on soccer in the afternoon on weekdays. How about you get to work and stop crying about the most popular sport in the world?
I am not crying home boy, just asking opinions. By the way, I am at work.
The best part about any debate involving soccer is watching how overly defensive "soccer guy" immediately becomes.
I'd love to see what Coach Saban would do if one of his players ran around
like a maniac after scoring.
Just ask AJ McCarron.
For the casual or avid soccer fan, Germany and the Netherlands kicks off on ESPN now. This is going to be a fantastic game. The amount of talent on the field during this game is unreal.
Its funny how people go out of their way to degrade soccer. Its like ohh snap that group is talking about soccer, let me go let them know how much i hate it. I've fought this losing battle for years now living in Alabama but I just really don't see why people hate it so much.
OP, you are seriously bothered by the fact that there is soccer on for a week or the xgames. The xgames gets 2-3hours a night for one week out of the year while there are channels dedicated 24/7 solely to the NFL, NBA, MLB. You don't get tired of the same sportcenter airing for 3hours straight? There is ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN News, NBC sports, fox sports and your bothered by one of those stations playing something you don't like for a couple weeks out of the year. Is it really that bothersome knowing ESPN is airing soccer while you work or bright an early saturday morning.
IMO there is to much Football, baseball, and basketball coverage and not enough of everything else.
Why not complain about ESPN plastering us with non-sporting contests (ie. world's strongest man, NASCAR)?
That's far more ridiculous than having sports coverage.
I agree with that...
Theeeeeerre's overly defensive soccer guy Jawa was alluding too. Took longer than i thought...
IMO, the best part of most soccer debates is watching how the narrow-minded "anti-soccer guy" immediately discounts the most popular sport in the world just because there are usually very few points scored in most games. Don't get me wrong I was in the same boat several years ago, but after watching the sport objectively I quickly began to appreciate it as being a highly technical finesse sport that is way more competitive than most American Sports.
