YOu are right Dustin and proud of it.. I make no apologies for being an American who embraces and loves our sports here. And quite frankly when has American ever give a damn about what the world thinks of us. NEVER
I am not saying that I don't respect soccer I just don't like it and most americans don't and I think the stats are on my side about that. That's not me making shit up for the sake up the article it's the truth. Soccer is not big here and never will be. It's not an American sport and never will be and quite frankly we still lag behind in it because for most of these countries whether you like it or not that's all they have. We have other sports we are better at in then most of the world that have been established in this country longer so if you want to continue to believe that by some miracle soccer will be big in this country someday, then go right ahead beliving. I choose to live in the real world.
It's just like in most parts of this country don't embrace certain sports especially if you aren't very good at it. Most Southerners love football because we are good and dominate the game. Most Northerners love baseball because they are good at it and most of the teams that way have dominated the game. It is a fact, Americans won't ever embrace soccer.
No Dustin it's the truth. They are Foreingers and the last time I check the NBA was dominated by Blacks AND? No I'm not a soccer fan and I'm tired of people like you and some of these other soccer snobs trying to force this boring game down our throats. Soccer is not an american sport and never will be. That might sound racist to you and so be it. But it still doesn't take away the fact that most americans do not and will ever embrace this sport.
Dustin let's get real here. Soccer is mainly a sport played by third world countries that most Americans aren't interested in or very good at it at the moment. I don't have to be an expert to know most of my fellow americans would rather watch American Football anyday over a bunch of foreingers playing kick ball for three hours without stopping. This is America and soccer IS NOT an american sport and will NEVER be full embraced by us PERIOD.
But see you talking about ONLINE and being the biggest sporting event in the world which is not in dispute, we are talking about the sport becoming as big as the Super Bowl or NCAA Football or the World Series which it will NEVER BE. NEVER . Soccer is a world sport but it's not OUR sport and we aren't as good as everyone else yet. I support my country but lets get real here, most americans aren't into the game.
Dustin when it beats the NFL, NBA, College Football, College Basketball, MLB or even NASCAR in ratings in this country, then you'll make a believer out of me. When ESPN decides to show the MLS over the NFL, then you'll make a believer out of me. When soccer beats the Super Bowl in ratings, then you'll make a believer out of me, When it beats the World Series, then you'll make a believer. Most othe people who are into soccer either actually play the game or not an American because if you poll most americans, they will watch the sports I mention above over any soccer game.
Dustin I don't think you have to be an expert to know that Soccer will never be big in this country and put it against any other major sport it would lose in the ratings because most americans aren't into it.
