May I ask which matches you watch?
Many of the games are boring. I suggest watching good teams play, and international cups/tournaments.
Clubs to watch:
Barcelona (best team out there right now, impressive players and alot of talentskills)
Then for international matches, watch some with good teams like south american teams (preferably Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina, Columbia and Ecuador).
That is where I have found very entertaining matches.
Once you also pick a team of interest, it makes the sport alot more enjoyable to watch because you get attached and feel the intensity.
But overall, the reason why people love football isn't because of the sport, but because of the teams and culture, and because it takes skill and good
teamwork to master. Heck, some people (like me) may watch a specific team play because someone for their country is playing, and they want to see the
talent and your country being represented. You can't just watch a random match and expect to enjoy it. Then ofcourse, after you get a bit comfortable
with the sport, you begin to watch specific matches because of talent and skill.
Especially international matches; people take international matches as if it's their entire country uniting to compete and win.
But yeah, main reason why it's so popular is because of culture, being part of a team and country, brings the world together, and you can also add
that it isn't as complex as US football.
Ofcourse this is my opinion based on what I've seen and why I like the sport. There are also other reasons as to why it's so popular and enjoyed
The Copa America (or as I call it, American Cup) is going to be hosted in the US this year. I suggest watching it because it will be one hell of a
championship this year!
Perhaps the reason why there's no salary cap is because there are so many ticket sales and sponsoring, that the amount of revenue allows for a high
amount of money to be given to the players. That and the fact that transfer markets are so competitive that it's like it's own casino and sport. ALOT
of money flows through the transfer markets during transfer windows. If there were salary caps, the competitiveness of the market would be lost, and
the value of players would diminish; players would also may not have a need to move to a different team since their salary would stay the
