    Wonderful lists, all of them. How about Jai Alai under individual sports and Orienteering under Hiking and Camping?

    Considering the fact the NFL championship game otherwise known as the Superbowl is played on Super Bowl Sunday. This is a fact that is known throughout the world
    I think this makes the NFL deserving of top tier status. American Football is not exactly a fit enough 'category' for I think that a game that is the second-largest day for U.S. food consumption, after Thanksgiving Day deserves its own place.
    It is one of the most watched American television broadcast of the year. Super Bowl XLV played in 2011 became the most watched American television program in history, drawing an average audience of 111 million viewers.
    Fact is the NFL's  Super Bowl is among the most watched sporting events in the world making this one topic that deserves its own category.

      Randy has sorted it out! smile

      Besides... I thought Larry had left HP after he put this in place?

      Apparently Randy has sold the Listing Rights to firm called Alien NFL LLC - they hail from some place called Arctus or something where they expect a viewing total of over 400 million!

      He wrote a hub about these guys, but neglected to say how much he earned or what the real deal is!  Are you invited to his BBQ later next year? yikes

    If you're requesting for NFL to have 1st Tier status- Why shouldn't Soccer/ Association Football have the same staus as it has a bigger wouldwide popularity than the NFL?
