    Sitting at my desk watching the match live on Sprint TV/ESPN. Quality is very good. I have a nice 4G connection today.

    I love this EVO!

    Glad that works well, always a good thing.

    Remember that we are all allowed our opinion and I grew up in an American football town!
    With that said soccer (football outside the US) is a lame sport! There I said it, yes I went there!!! ii

    Sorry but why have two good hands only to not be allowed to use them? I mean that is just lame. Let them grab the ball and throw it at each other like dodge ball. Now THAT would make it exciting!! Tell me it would not be much better that way, trying to block it like dodge ball and throwing it back at each other REALLY hard. The action would be 1000 times better.

    I think it is great to do casually but to be the biggest professional sport in the world, naaa.

    The only reason it is so popular is it needs no setup or effort to play. Just have a ball and any field or lot etc... they could still be allowed to throw it.

    Flame away!! ii

    Unreal how well the live video works on 4G. There is absolutely no skipping at all, none.

    I am still on 3G in Denver. I noticed that Sprint TV will not let me use WiFi, only cellular data connection. I have my Pre connected via 3G as well, and it looks much better than my Evo.

    What's worse is that the guy refused to give any explanation for the disallowed goal. Worse than that, the replays show that 2 U.S. players were being held/fouled by the Slovenians.

    Wonder how much that ref got paid.

    Still lovin' my EVO...

    I agree! I can't wait to hear his explanation of why it wasn't a goal. But chances are we won't get an explanation.


    I'm in Texas so there is really only 1 football.!

    I thought for a second Jim Joyce was officiating that game with all those botched calls.

    Really was an unacceptable call- especially considering two Americans were being fouled at the same time.

    On an unrelated (to soccer) note: Why the hell can't you use SprintTV over wifi?

    Back to the EVO...gotta love that Freakin' kickstand! It makes watching video just so easy. Not sure if anyone else saw the giant 2 page ad in USA Today last week for the EVO. One of the "Firsts" was about the "Freakin' kickstand". It is very handy.

    Hehe. At least Jim Joyce admitted he was wrong, I get the feeling this guy won't.

    I can't watch/listen at work because once I enter the office I totally lose reception. I have been using it at home when no one else will let me watch it on the big tv.

    100% speculation, but i'd bet it's some weird contract issue.

    editing to add: the world cup is amazing, and yes that call was completely ridiculous!

    No I watched it on TV today, but I was at lunch earlier this week with bunch of coworkers and sat outside. I opened up Sprint TV and Brazil vs Korea was on and the quality was good on the 3g. Watched the entire second half without a single glitch. A coworker was impressed and he's an iphone lover. lol

    HAIL to the EVO

    Soccer takes far more skill to play than most sports. It's far easier to compete in something using your hands than it is to use your feet, which is why soccer is more skillful. Amercian Footbal can suck it.

    The thing I like about Soccer, at least in the US is that we have salary caps in the MLS. Like I was watching the Lakers/Celtics game last night...and Lakers win the NBA title. Who had the highest salary payroll? The Lakers. I understand that NBA has a salary cap to an extent, but you have one team, the Lakers spending almost $92 million, while the Pistons spent almost $44 million. To me, Soccer is the most interesting, and most balanced sport.

    On a side note...Ties/Draws in soccer suck, and so do the refs.

    Oh and also watched the game on my Evo...on 4g the picture is beautiful.

    my guess would be that if they let you watch it outside of Sprint's network, someone would figure out how to use it from a computer, or other phone on another network by writing a program that imitated a sprint phone. The way it is now, if you are on Sprint's network they KNOW you are a customer.

    Same here. Then they go off to their offices and when I woul make a noise they would come running back to see what happened. They were all impressed with the EVO. One guy has Sprint and said he may go get one now.

    Said by someone who like the sport that doesn't use thier hands. We will have to disagree here. ii

    The NBA, which I hate, is not a good example but I agree with you on salery caps. That is one reason I like American football and hockey, they have caps, keeps the playing field level, pun intended. ii

    My baseball team sucks arse because they don't have any money to put in and New York basically buys their championships every year they win.

    BTW guys did you see the app in the market for the World Cup?
    World Cup 2010 - FotMob - Android app on AppBrain

    BTW it is all good, we all like different things. I don't like many sports that others do. I think Golf, Tennis and Nascar are boring as hell! That is why we have many sports! ii

    I am glad Soccar exists though. If it didn't we would not have SMILF'S. (You figure it out) ii
