The Football World Cup 2018 by Ken Dunn on 15 June 2018 3:14pm
 
I'll be watching very little of this tournament. I enjoyed the Russia v Saudi Arabia game but when Suarez and his Uruguyan team mates started diving falsely towards the end of the match (and probably during it earlier) it has put me off watching this sport. If they played rugby they'd know what it is to be really hurt, instead they do play acting to try to fool the referee the tackle was worse than it was.

I've seen bits of the Russia vs. Saudi Arabia, Iran vs. Morocco and Spain vs Portugal.

The England v Tunisia game was interesting last night. Harry Kane got free from all the 'cuddles' he was getting to score the winner late in the match.

I started watching Portugal - Spain until several seconds in Ronaldo started rolling around. I sped it up a bit. A few minutes later someone else did a dive. I sped it up some more. I did find 2.75X to be a good speed to watch football and I saved 57.27 minutes! That was WC 2018 for me.

It is one of the greatest sports, but I find it virtually unwatchable at the highest level. EPL, as I remember it, isn't too bad, but until FIFA is abolished or sent to prison, there are more entertaining sports. Since becoming a rugby fan, football lost it's lustre.

The rules need some radical updating.
