I wondered, if anybody watches the women' soccer world cup 2011? Our TV stations show every games in whole length for the first time. Games were our national team plays are shown at prime time. So there is a bit more interest this year than in the years before (which maybe because our country hosts it and the women's rights movement is very strong here...), is that the same in other countries? America (other then the men's team , Brazil, Germany and Sweden are seen as finale candidates (after the first games France is seen there too now). I do not know if that thread is totally dumb and I do not want to offend people who find women playing soccer is dull, but I was interested in how it is seen in other countries, though. I know that sports, religion and politics always inherit the possibility of defending someone, so I'd like this thread to be closed by a moderator, if someone is "pissed off" by it.
