Poland goal keeper is having a heck of a tournament,  several more great saves in the 1st half of today's matchup against Argentina including stopping Messi on a PK!

Cant imagine how a missed PK is going to go over for Messi if Argentima doesnt win

Why should the most popular sport in the world fundamentally change to accommodate non fans?

To get more fans? It's only the most popular because every single country plays it. 

 

Why does the NFL, the highest revenue generating league in the world, play games in England, Germany, Mexico? To get more fans.

Anyone know what the 3rd tiebreaker is if Mexico and Poland finish with the same GD and goals scored

Fair play points.  Everyone starts at 0 and you lose points based on yellow and red cards.   Team that has lost the fewest points advances

Well why don't they give them 5 downs while playing in Europe, make touchdowns worth 10 and field goals are scored like fantasy 3,4, 5 etc... that could generate more excitement and fans.

I could get behind the FG rule maybe, makes Tucker even more valuable. But you’re not really making the right comparison to my suggestion. I’m not saying make goals count as 2 instead of 1. I think forcing some more action around the goal box isn’t the worst thing.

Great recovery from Argentina.  I still think they're the team to beat.
