Unhappy Sooo sad.

Soccer really is a great sport imho. It's too bad some people don't really like it. Oh, well. Thus is life.
C~ya,
Carolyn who couldn't imagine life without soccer.

Soccer is good, but lets not forget that this post is about improvments for next year. And The High Priest agrees about one thing: simple scoring. Probably the most complicated sport (scoring wise) is football. You have 3 basic ways of scoring (not counting conversions, which are prettymuch the same anyway). When's the last time we've had a FIRST game that simple? Probably not since 1996.

Many things have gotten stale lately. I think soccre came up because I suggested that we play an already established sport, like soccer. Dean has mentioned turning FIRST into robot olympics, why not play olympic sports. Most people will be able tounderstand the rules and scoring or be able to find people outside of FIRST to explain.
C~ya,
Carolyn

Exactly, I think the easiest way for FIRST to appeal to audiences is to have a game that is easy to follow and understand. people the like things to be complicated.

Hmm... could football go as a FIRST game? Think about it. Take teams of 5, and use regular football strategy to play. Imagine the field goal kicker.

That would be really tough for the first time. You'd have to have great accuracy throwing, recieving, and kicking. At least with soccer you can chase a ball down and the goal is on the ground, don't have to figure out lifting a kick. The other sport that might be easy is rugby... even that would be tough though.
C~ya,
Carolyn
