Are these the common stereotypes? Lol

I'm not American and I have to say that the part about rioting is probably true. However, the part about soccer being boring is definitely NOT true. I've lived in the US and attended American football, ice hockey and baseball matches and none of them were remotely as thrilling as a good soccer match. Especially American football and baseball both have tons of small breaks that really got on my nerves after a while. Just when you think that the game has started to "flow" a bit, there's another break. It's like table tennis between two beginner players where the ball falls on the ground every 20 seconds. Soccer flows much more, which I think is cool.
And while I don't know much about American sports, I would claim that soccer is also more interesting in terms of strategic playing. Modern international soccer is almost like chess on a big lawn. I don't have the impression that's the case for American football for example.2
