US coverage seems only to care about the scoring chances, and the rest is merely filler.

In addition to the commentators, the cameramen also make a difference. They show fouls from close-up and from different angles so you have a much better understanding of what's going on. I remember watching US soccer games and seeing the cameramen use the american-football stadium overhead shots, which just don't work for soccer.
