I know, eh? While reading this thread I found myself thinking I'm so lucky not to be a sports fan!

You underestimate the Power of the nfl and American media. The same way the premier League sells out I north america. The same happens when the nfl goes to England they will be going this year I don't expect to see anything but success with that endeavor.

But if you mean soccer is more popular that football. I'd have to say obviously. Football is really just a north American thing. It's just American spend A LOT on their football. And a lot of American states prefer to watch ncaa over nfl. Heck I thikn other than the circus that is the super bowl I'd dare to say college football is more beloved in america than the nfl.

Without a doubt.

Take a look at the largest stadia in the world, and the top of the list is dominated by US Colleges.

The other thing is population. The UK has 65 Million or so, the US has nearly 400M. The US is only marginally smaller than all of Western Europe.

Yeah. The NFL is the richest sports league in the world.

The Americans are *more* nuts about the NFL than any Europeans are about their soccer leagues (including the EPL in England), and there are more of them (Americans), so there you go...
