Entire leagues where 1-1 scores after 90 minutes are considered thrilling. It's not the same. Not even close.
I was going to say you must have been unfortunate enough to see Portugal vs. Italy fixture.

3 hours straight? Aw come on
These guys play sumo for 5 seconds and they get 1 minute standing around, and that's when they're on the field. The rest of the time they sit on their fat asses drinking Gatorade and waving "Hi Mom" to the camera that rolls by.
Make them run full 90 minutes with 15 minute break in between and let's see if they're still man about it.
Didn't NFL institute a rule so that injuries count as timeouts in the last 2 minutes of the game since so many began to fake injuries?

It boils down to this: different game, different physical requirements.

If you are getting into manliness, there's rugby - played like American Football but no protection, just bodies crunching against bodies - they'll consider American Football a game for pussies.

Regarding scores it's the process, not the results, that weighs in in the beautiful game.

^ Did that involve hanging out at the 18 and scaring the shit out of anyone from the other team?
