Another factor why I don't like Brazil, which is not Brazil's fault, is that the local journalists here are all Brazil fans and their reports were like that of fanboys gushing. I read newspapers for their impartial* reports and not sections and sections of opinions. For opinions, I can read the forum boards of Football 365, and that forum is usually a lot more witty, visceral and entertaining. It is not unlike reading the English media and their unrealistic expectations of the perennial choking English team. At least, for the Brazilians, they were installed favourites in almost every World Cup.
*As far as one can reasonably expect.
