Anyone have a link for the SJ vs Seattle game ????


Yeah, NBC Sports did!

Boring game in front a crowd of 45,000. SJ Earthquakes have horrible players. A lot of fans were there just to be the first people at the new stadium. Heard multiple people around say this "Shit is boring"

This was a good opportunity to showcase a growing sport to non fans and it was a horrible display of soccer

Seattle was really pushing the last 10 minutes and had Martins, Dempsey, Cooper and Barrett on the pitch. They didn't lose for a lack of effort.

Some games are less entertaining than others but thats true in every sport. I'm not too worried about 49ers fans who went to the game to see the stadium. They were going to be hard to win over in any scenario.

Thought the game was good to be honest. Non fans are going to be non fans regardless.

True soccer fans know that most games aren't 2, 3, or 4 goal explosions.

Thought Seattle was very entertaining to watch, they were just unable to put the ball into the ol' onion bag.

San Jose played counter attacking soccer, and had multiple shots. I didn't see it as boring at all.

On another note: Nice looking new Levi stadium. One thing they will have to do if they are to hope to get a FIFA WC game(depending on when the US gets a FIFA WC), they are going to have to create a temporary cover for the stands. FIFA requires all of the participating stadia to have a cover/partial roof/roof over the stands.

That's why stadiums like the Rose Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Etc.. would have to do temporary renovations to get any WC games.

I thought it was a pretty entertaining game as well, at least on TV. Not a goal fest, but fairly entertaining!

I did not see the game so I can't comment on that but I think in general you need to get people excited and then once you have their attention then they start to appreciate the game more. For imstance when I went off to college last year I managed to convert quite a few people into soccer fans but it took time. At first there wasn't much interest from my friends and they didn't find the first few games interesting. Once I showed them highlights of say Ronaldo and Messi and we watched a high scoring EPL game (I forget who it was I think it was Liverpool or City) they started taking a bigger interest in the sport in general. To get new fans you need to draw them in with excitement and then they'll start appreciating the 1-0 wins or 1-1 draws more.

FIFA rules are always *subject to change* as they say. I'm going to that Levi stadium for Bears-49ers I heard its a step up from Candlestick.
