I'm concerned that DN writers don't know the difference between
"meddle" and "mettle". What does the editor think?
Watched the last half off and on...can't help but notice the difference
between hockey players and soccer players. Soccer players are always faking an
injury extracting as much drama as possible and hockey players are always faking
like they didn't get hurt during actual drama. And what is it with the
refs? they call no foul on one player and turn around and red card another for a
lesser foul. Soccer would also be better off if there was no offsides traps. Do
like hockey does and draw an offsides line in the playing turf. The moving
target offsides based upon where the defender is standing is silly. More goals,
speed up the game. And I thought the NBA was rigged...
@BYUHOCKEYI've got some ideas to make soccer better too. For
starters, speed up the game by getting rid of the grass and having them play on
a sheet of ice. We can have them wear skates instead of shoes so guys
aren't falling down all the time. A ball probably won't move well
enough on ice, so let's get rid of that and replace it with a small, flat
rubber disc. It would probably be hard to kick a small, flat rubber disc, so we
should give every player a stick so they can hit it around instead of kicking.
Finally, I think we should introduce insane, contradictory rules (for example,
throwing punches is not a foul but don't you dare grab another guy's
stick). Yeah, that would make soccer about perfect.In other words,
if you think perfection in sports is to turn every sport into hockey, maybe you
should stick with hockey.
What do you do with Alvarez?
Nussdorfer ACSalt Lake City, UTI am with you and against on
the Alvarez thing, one I do think sometimes he is out of control in his tackles,
but I also think that he plays with a lot of heart and that gets him in trouble,
he just needs to figure out when it is a good idea to make that tackle other
than that, he does have some skills.
