Is Copa America The Most Boring Cup Ever?

I've never watched a cup as boring as this year's copa America.

So far ALL matches have been draws.

Even Ligue 1(:1) is more exciting. Le mans players bore themselves in bland 0-0, but at least they're getting paid for that.

I doubt this cup will even have 30 goals, terrible.

At least Chile-Uruguay lived up to expectations.

Gold Cup is worse, the group stage is absolutely pointless and some will argue the entire tournament. Its always hosted by the US and they groups aren't even determined by draw, CONCACAF arranges them

Overall Copa is an entertaining competition, but this Copa is shit bar some teams. But lack of goals is hurting.

One of the worst I have ever seen, only the 2001 version comes close, but that one didn't have quality teams in it, this one does.
This one had the highest expectations in years.

I am kinda losing my interest and patience. In fact, I pretty much started skipping all the games bar Argentina, Brazil and Chile games, the latter one is only to watch A. Sanchez.

I will be honest, it was long ago that I enjoyed watching Brazil, and in fact, I skipped their games except for the World Cup games, due to them being extremely boring. This Copa, I gave them a chance, I also wanted to see the hyped talents like Ganso and Neymar, but they are boring, like under Dunga.

Argentina have been gash as well, but I will keep watching to root for Messi and Mascherano.

All in all, the tournament has been awful. Defensive, low-scoring 0-0 and 1-1 games are OK if the level is high. But the games have been quite a low level. Columbia, Venezuela and Bolivia played well, but those games ended in draw because Argentina and Brazil showed a very crap level of games more so than the former teams demonstrating some inhumane football.

In terms of this year, yes Copa is the worst. No action, just draws and no goal. But overall, usully, Gold Cup are worse in terms of quality.

I will watch the last Argentina game and perhaps the final.

I never watched Gold Cup but I guess it's boring too.

Ever? I do not know - I have not been around since 1916 but yes: this one is abysmal from what little I have seen. Let us hope my boys can stuff Paraguay tonight and put a smile on the faces of the entire population of South America (Paraguayans included!).

I didn't find games like Uruguay-Peru or Chile-Mexico boring.. but watching Brazil-Venezuela was a pain, looked like a mid-table Portuguese League game.

Super Ze (remember him - what a fine physical specimen) - you can't post that and not tell us what happened against this defender!

I have not seen many Copas but this is the worst of all from the ones I've seen. But Gold Cups are usually worse than this. But, this Copa America can get better. It's still only in the group stages.

The Brazil-Paraguay game was quite entertaining. Not because of some fantastic level Brazil demonstrated, but it was a high scoring, back-and-forth game.

This Copa is so boring, I don't even bpther to watch most of the games. I will wait for the big matchups like Brazil-Argentina, for example.

Uruguay - Chile was a pretty high quality encounter.
