I am an American who tries to defend soccer to many other Americans who deride it. But I have to admit that I was astonished to find out that FIFA will introduce a new ball for the World Cup. This just seems incomprehensible to me.

I can't think of any other sport where the most important piece of equipment is suddenly changed and the players have two weeks to prepare with it prior to the most important sporting event of their lives.

What kind of crackpot logic is that? That is like the NFL introducing a new football two weeks before the Super Bowl. No one would accept that.

I think this occurs every WC, doesn't it, guys? And players usually whine about it for a few days then get on with it. But this ball seems to be raising particular concerns and it could affect matches. What's disturbing is FIFA instituted with the hope of more goals. That's like MLB basically allowing steriod use and a peppy baseball for more HR's. It's garbage. :rolleyes:

Everyone has to use it so it doesn't really matter that much.
