Why soccer will never be a prime time sport
Soccer will never be a prime time TV sport because it's too hard to see the ball. Watching football, baseball, basketball and tennis on TV is as good or better than the best seat at the stadium. But watching soccer on TV is worse than the worst seat at the soccer stadium. Try it; you're about a million miles from the action. Why they pan so far out and show the entire team and not focus closer on the player with the ball is beyond me. Soccer will forever be a second class act until they zoom in. This also holds true for hockey and lacrosse.
