I just think the play acting is reason #16243 that more Americans don’t watch soccer. The MLS is at a low standard (but always getting a little better) and the national team is pretty mediocre without any star players. The Copa America should be fun to watch, but it will will also include players trying to get other players sent off by exaggerating injuries.

I will say one thing – despite the “mediocre” USMNT the World Cup gets a LOT of run in the U.S. and for 2014 it was everywhere in our office. To the point that people that probably couldn’t name more than 1 MLS team were watching the games, were in pools and in general just talking about the tournament.
