Firstly, thank you for this debate. I look forward to it.

1. What is the sport really watched for? The 'goals' themselves are not what is looked forward to in a soccer game. What it is watched for is the battle of strength, speed, finesse, and skill to earn the better team these goals. Therefore, the low amount of goals doesn't contribute to how exciting it is to watch.

2. The sport isn't just watched, it is played. You have to think of the entertainment value for the players as well. In most games, there are two eleven man teams, constituting twenty-two players that all are gaining happiness from this sport.

3. Many people watch soccer. In the 2010 FIFA world cup there were around 26 billion total views in 64 games. (http://www.cbsnews.com...-/ )
