Well let's see.. in soccer you have occasional thugs like Keane but for the most part the players get by with speed, skill flair. Same goes for basketball. In handball, they hold them, pull them, do anything to them, it's not about technique, it's about physical strength, I might as well watch wrestling.
And what's with the line anyway, they often jump, then land, then shoot, so what's the line for anyway?
I have played it quite a lot, mostly as left 9. It is pretty fun, and it is really fun to watch. It is one of the most exciting sports from time to time. But I would never stand watching anything but the Olympics or the World cup.
