    mokbon.
    Both these examples are OK, although they need a little correcting.
    The comma after "concerned" is often left out and I'm not sure which is considered the more correct form.

    1. Disagree
    A: Soccer is a good game.
    B: No, as far as I'm concerned, soccer is a very demanding sport that makes us tired after doing it.

    2. Agree
    A: Soccer is a good game.
    B: Yes, as far as I'm concerned, it's really fun to kick a ball into the goal.
    or
    B: Yes, as far as I'm concerned, soccer is really fun because I like to kick a ball into the goal.
