@3 – I grew up watching the NHL when there were only six teams, and five of them had goaltenders who are now in the Hall of Fame (and deserve to be). The number of goals scored in a game averaged just about five. But where a soccer game with five goals has perhaps ten shots on goal, these hockey games had sixty-five to seventy shots on goal, with perhaps an additional ten shots blocked by the defensive team before they reached the goal. That, to me, is why soccer sucks but hockey is awesome.
