Go to Celtic Park, Ibrox, Anfield, Britania Stadium etc and tell me there is no atmosphere.

And an American talking about lake of atmosphere is hilarious!

great atmosphere at Celtic Park and Ibrox. But with the rest of the SPL the atmosphere is terrible. Half empty stadiums with demoralized fans yelling "keep with baw doon!!"

The atmosphere at most American sports is a joke. But go to a Seattle Sounders or Portland match. Or go watch the national team play in Columbus and you will see fabulous atmosphere.

OK, so I suppose you have been to Hampden, Pittodrie, Tyncastle, Easter Road, Dens or Tannadice have you!

Got to a Edinburgh derby, Dundee derby, Aberdeen v Rangers, Kilmarnock v Ayr or Dunfermline v Raith Rovers and we can talk.

Not sure what this refers to, but I would say the atmosphere at american sports is different. Baseball, football, and basketball are really different sports than soccer. Soccer action doesn't really stop, while the other sports have frequent breaks in action. For example, at NFL games there are peaks and valleys of noise, from crazy exhausting screaming to idle chatting...just like the flow of the game.

Well that means they should actually have better atmospheres ............... jump up and down while you wait for play to resume.

Going back on topic, do people enjoy watching football because they see it as a contest based on athletic skills and tribalism regardless of whether goals are scored?
