True. It's not top five for American sports. However, it does get a fair amount of media attention and has some fanbase.

The NFL version is more profitable due to the 67 minutes of commercials per game, and that is why ESPN wants you to watch "U.S. American FootBALL" ...hell yeahh .. You must watch it... If you don't watch the NFL football, YOU are Anti U.S.American! If you watch the world football, you are also Anti-U.S. American! Lol...

You do realize that ESPN has payed millions for the rights to broadcast MLS, UEFA, EPL, La Liga, USSF, FIFA, and other soccer events?

On top of that, they are working on creating a soccer specific ESPN channel.

yeah, they hate soccer over there at ESPN.
