        Nothing is popular until it is popular in the USA.  Not being an asshole...it's just the plain truth.

            Football was popularized because of English people.In fact
            the first Football Association was founded in England.

              Hey genious...football is soccer in these parts.  Here in the USA, football (NFL) is a real sport.

                You are a genius.I am glad to know that football is a real sport in USA.Perhaps the first football association was founded in USA. Wish USA good luck for the upcoming world cup football.

                  LOL...I meant real football, not soccer.  That's okay though.  Even though I fucking hate soccer, more power to you!

                    America is the only country in the world where American football is "real football".  Say the word football anywhere else, and they'll think you mean soccer.  Except in Australia, where some people will think you mean rugby league and some will think you mean Australian Rules. But at least we recognise we're unusual in that regard.

                    Soccer is the world game, whether you like it or not.

                    Felt the need to chime in here.

                    As an American, even I can admit that soccer is the most popular sport in the world.  And if you look around, it is played all over America by kids.  It's no NFL here, but it continues to gain popularity among America's youth.  Saying something's not popular until it's popular in America is kind of closed-minded.

    It might only be 3 hours long, but there's still no urgency. Football (soccer to our american friends) is much more immediate, edge of your seat stuff. Cricket is still cricket.
