Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup Reply #30 – November 26, 2022, 03:01:28 pm Quote from: Mav on November 25, 2022, 10:18:10 amYou’re joking, but soccer fanatics aren’t. I remember reading an article by Craig Foster who proposed that the other football codes should identify elite juniors who would excel at soccer and convince them to play soccer. He reasoned that as soccer is played internationally, the Socceroos needed elite talent to compete on the world stage while the AFL and NRL were domestic leagues whose teams would share the leftovers equally and spectators wouldn’t notice the difference as the clubs would still be competitive! He didn’t mention how juniors would be persuaded; are cattle prods legal at the junior level?Why play Soccer when you can play a better game in Aussie Rules? You don't have to go overseas to be successful. As for the game, well half of the world cup games so far have had neither side scoring. That is supposed to be interesting?It is a good thing that the best athlete here don't play soccer.
