    Any idea why ESPN has many of the U21 Euros on TV and more accessible ESPN3 rather than ESPN +? If they were going to show a tournament on TV, would think Copa America would be more popular than a U21 tournament (although I am following it)

    I’m glad you addressed the streaming issue. I have never been able to get in for the USA WWC matches. It told me I didn’t have a subscription but I have the top subscription and I’ve never had trouble before. It’s been very frustrating. I may try watching it using my Tablo app which, ironically, means I’m using a TV antenna to stream the games.

    Lisa Byington is a fine professional and great overall person. But she is an average at best, dull soccer lead commentator that doesn’t know how to capture the right emotion in a match.

    Her call of Nchout’s winning goal for Cameroon vs New Zealand was a prime example of that.
