  22. There are far superior games called football than this. I suggest you scrap it all and begin again with something with proper rules that make sense.

  23. What a boring sport. 10 minutes of play 30 minutes of brakes, bunch of boring commercials and it all takes 4 hours or so. I’m glad the world watches better sports. This crap is so boring, I would rather stare at a wall and be more entertained.

  24. As a European this seems so weird, and so confusing its called football, mabe rename it somthing more fitting when you realise you know it barely involves using your feet on the egg shape….

  27. This game literally makes zero sense!

  28. Stupid stop-start game. Only 11 minutes of actual gameplay in the whole game, according to experts.

    The rest of it is watching players and coaches hanging around, 17 minutes of replays and commercials. Apparently there are loads of those.
