But I find low scores in all sports are exceptionally boring. If you tell me a football game will end up 3-0, I'm not going to watch it. In fact, most sports are set up for low scores. For example, why do pitchers get four balls instead of three? If pitchers only got three balls, they'd have to throw more strikes meaning the batters would get more good pitches to hit, meaning higher scores. Higher scores means more players running the bases and more chances for great defensive plays like trying to throw a runner out as he tries for an extra base. But that's just me. Like soccer, it seems most baseball fans are content with low-scoring games. If you only gave one point for touchdowns and a half-point for a field goal, American football games would seem low-scoring as well. My rule for all sports: more offense-scoring please.
I don't want soccer to go down the road that the NFL has taken. Again, your mileage may vary.
