Title: Euro 2012 thread
Post by: Thork on May 15, 2012, 09:50:08 AM
If you are not European and the thread title wasn't hint enough, this is your cue to leave.

Also having done similar threads in the past, I know there isn't a huge amount of interest for European football. But anyway in 3 weeks the tournament begins. I will be playing a fantasy football game during the tournament. I decided on the one from uefa.com. Its free, its safe and you could win a TV or a camera or something.

If anyone else is interested, build a team and let me know. I'll set up a little FES league or something.

I shall also be using this thread to wax lyrical about England when they win and to stick the knife in when they lose.

This is fantastic, but if Ichi had bothered clicking the link, he would have seen that he needs to pick players for his team, not a bag of nations.

Why would you do that? They play the second most boring football on the planet after Greece. Pass-pass-wait. Pass-pass-pass-wait. Back the other way. Pass-pass-wait. Pass-Pass-roll on the floor like you have had your leg cut off. Also Torres is useless, Villa is broken, Pedro is broken, Raul is 74 years old, and they haven't really got a huge number of players to fill in up front. Puyol is also broken.

Well, I just happen to be their fan, and I enjoy their fluid style of play, which involves dominating possession through consecutive passings. This, I think, strengthens their defence simply by preventing their opponents from ever touching the ball and thus making any advances. The repeated passings can also help them penetrate the enemy lines. In a way, it's like playing monkey-in-the-middle with your opponent (him being the monkey, of course), and the match between Spain and Germany in the last World Cup showed this quite clearly. Anyway, I think Tiki-Taka is beautiful football, and it's fun to watch the Spanish playing in their opponents' half for the majority of the match.

Though, I haven't watched football in a while (what I said is simply based on the games that I've watched in the last Euro and World Cup), so I don't know if they have changed some of their strategies. I'm sure you know more about them than I do.


EDIT: just wanted add a few more things.

You have to get your team done before kick off tomorrow though.

Lol. Here an American is watching sport. There is no commercial break after 2 mins to remind him that he should visit the refridgerator and eat something.

I dislike soccer because to me, the game has always seemed to be largely made up of filler.  One person kicks the ball and it soars towards the other end of the field.  Then a player from the other team kicks the ball, and it goes flying back the other way, rendering the past thirty seconds a complete waste of time.  I have just described at least half the action (in some cases, more) of every single professional soccer game ever played.

You have just described many other sports that was ever invented. They moved an object(usually a ball) from one end to the other and repeats. Sports are a waste of time.

It isn't simply the fact that they move the ball back and forth that's the problem - it's that they aren't playing while the ball hurtles through the air.  It's just a ball going through the air, and the players scrambling to get at it when it falls down.  And that's just boring.  Elements that make similar "back and forth" sports (such as, say, basketball or hockey) entertaining like maintaining possession, intercepting, vying for control, etc. are all heavily diluted in soccer.

Interesting you mention basketball because I think that is one of the planet's most boring games. Ignoring the fact that being tall is such an advantage as to make skill irrelevant (there are no 5 feet 2 inch players regardless of how skilful) but the main problem is you always expect them to score. Like 50 times a game. Score after score after score. The only way a team loses is if they fail to score regularly. And then its just *shrug* "they didn't score". You can't get carried away in euphoric celebration every 30 secs. Also the music makes basketball appeal to the lowest common denominator. Plink, Plink, Plink, Plink, *faster*,Plink, Plink, Plink, Plink, *faster*,Plink, Plink, Plink, Plink, Oh he lost possession start again or duh-duh-duh duh, tedah!. Awful game.

Poor Dutch. :( Now they must at the very least defeat Portugal with a higher goal difference, all the while praying that Germany will defeat Denmark. Though, winning against Portugal with two goals ahead is hardly an easy task, and football, like any other sport, is full of surprises (Denmark might end up defeating Germany as well). I honestly couldn't believe the Netherlands would be in such a bad position so quickly, seeing that they have such talented players and performed very well in the qualification stages not long ago.

Basketball is actually my favorite sport to watch, Thork. Also, I thought the goal of any sport was to score more points than the other team, and the losing team, funny enough, fails to score a sufficient number of points. Because there's more points scored, the sport is bad? You'd rather watch a sport with a handful of close goals and perhaps two or three goals for a team, on a good day? A few brief moments of excitement in a soccer game cannot match up to a close fourth quarter in basketball.

Scoring, to me, is better than not scoring.

Blanko, is a game still exciting when the team you're hoping to win scores a whopping zero points? That is what I most dislike about soccer. That and what Saddam said about booting the ball back and forth for much of the game.

No, but I also don't like football. The only team sport I can stand watching is ice hockey, and even that's only with international events so I can root for Finland. It strikes a good balance between having always something happening and having goals be an actual significant deal that will make an emotional impact in one way or another. Sure enough, the latter happens in football, but there is a fuckton of boring running around and nothing happening, whereas in basketball scoring happens so often that it becomes mundane and nothing really stands out in a game.
Title: Re: Euro 2012 thread
Post by: Sean on June 13, 2012, 09:07:39 PM
Sure things stand out and get the crowd/player into it. Not all points are equal. Made contested shots, flashy dunks, steals and points in transition, 3-pointers, embarrassing blocks, good passes and play calling. There's a lot of impressive athleticism displayed. I'd argue the players, at least appear to be, more talented and athletic than soccer players.


Also, the US Olympic team is fucking stacked.

Post by: Particle Person on June 14, 2012, 01:41:15 PM
I was reading about how exciting American football is. Apparently, in an average game, the ball is only in play for eleven minutes.

Quote
So what do the networks do with the other 174 minutes in a typical broadcast? Not surprisingly, commercials take up about an hour. As many as 75 minutes, or about 60% of the total air time, excluding commercials, is spent on shots of players huddling, standing at the line of scrimmage or just generally milling about between snaps. In the four broadcasts The Journal studied, injured players got six more seconds of camera time than celebrating players. While the network announcers showed up on screen for just 30 seconds, shots of the head coaches and referees took up about 7% of the average show.

No wonder this is a national past-time here. It sounds awesome. At least there are cheerleaders, right?

Quote
If you think the networks are a little too fond of cheerleaders, you may be mistaken: In these broadcasts, only two networks showed cheerleaders at all. And when they did, they were only on camera for an average of three seconds. "We make it a point to get Dallas cheerleaders on, but otherwise, it's not really important," says Fred Gaudelli, NBC's Sunday Night Football producer. "If we're doing the Jets, I couldn't care less."

I have a feeling the final match could be between Spain and Germany again. These two teams haven't really lost their touch. Germany are as coherent and balanced as before (they seem to fight as a single unit all the time), while Spain are yet again nearly untouchable thanks to their exceptional midfield and Tiki-Taka (they probably could get at least 200 passes with just Xavi and Iniesta). Though, Portugal and Italy have performed very well so far, and they are definitely strong enough to take on Spain and Germany, respectively.

so Alan Shearer just tried to say that the Spanish have had an "unbelievable amount of success" and said "the Spanish have had an unbelievable amount of sex" excellent

Well, I really hated how was Spain playing this Euro, but the final just impressed me. It's like the last Euro again. "¡No hay dos sin tres!"

Well done Spain.

I did well in that fantasy football game that no one else wanted to play. :'(

I finished 1,570th out of 560,960. Not too shabby.

What sort of a manager uses all 3 substitutions before the 60th minute? That was dumb. Once Motta got injured, they played the rest of the game as if someone had been sent off. 4-0 was completely the fault of the Italian manager.
