I don't want to derail the discussion in the WC threads, but after reading these two pages: http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2014-06-25.html http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-echochambers-28065500 I think it deserves its own thread. Bunch of thoughts: While I agree soccer can be boring (and sadly often is), after watching a baseball game (or two) on TV I think it is much more boring. I can understand those preferring fast games, with high scores - basketball, handball. I do. Doesn't make me ridicule soccer (unless it is a Polish team playing, but that's another thing). If Ann Coulter were to post her text at PF she would get banned for intended misinformation (which is our politically correct name for an utter lie).
