How can you say that's the "Real" Super Bowl when the NFL has a trademark on that name?

I bet more people watch this Euro thing than the SB...but I don't want the NFL suing me...

Perhaps we should move the debate to this page?

Probably, but are you the type to do something just because a bunch of others are doing it?

I encourage you to watch what you want to watch and ignore what everyone else is doing.

I'm actually pretty excited for this. I rarely if ever watch, but I really enjoy it when I get a chance to catch the games.

Who are people here pulling for?

I am hoping for Deutschland or Espana but wouldn't mind a dark horse pulling it out (my money would be on Russia or Turkey).

The Super Bowl is THE most watched sporting event worldwide three out of every four years. The World Cup Final blows it out of the water.

Since England is not in it, I am mostly rooting for my favorite players and looking to enjoy some great games. My money is on Spain.

i just wish i got espn classic. Time warner pulled it out our a few months ago so i would have to bump up to a higher level if i want it. i will watch what i can on the other channels though. all i know is i am hoping that portugal looses cause they are always a bunch of whiners. other then that i dont care who wins.

IDK if thats always true, generally it may be, but 2 out of every 4 years there is a major soccer championship, euro or WC and both dwarf SB numbers

this google answers post has some nifty info

Wait,

Aren't the olympics this year... so what about Olympic soccer?

Do they coincide?

FIFA is smart about protecting the value and prestige of its leagues and tournaments. The result is that Olympic soccer is played by under 23 year olds who have never played in a world cup game for their country

Lets go Portugal! Of the teams in this year, I think they play with the most entertaining flair and pace.
