If that's really the case as what the OP is arguing, then let me reply being a non-American: the world as a whole will never let an American sport supplant football/soccer as king BECAUSE of too many commercial breaks! If only you know how many foreigners find watching the NFL off-putting because of all the unnecessary TV timeouts and commercial breaks. Disclaimer: I like and root for the Eagles, Vikings, and Lions in the NFL yet I myself struggle to watch full games of American Football because of too many breaks...

Lack of commercials, nah! Americans are very very regionally sheepish. Here in the Pacific Northwest soccer is HUGE. You go to a place like Wyoming or West Virginia and you would be laughed out of the water for even mentioning the word soccer. I think as people turn on their TV sets and notice the gigantic enthusiasm for the sport in a cool/trend setting region such as the PNW, more people are going to be open to the idea of watching the sport.
