No I did not. I said that many athletes and fans have said something along these lines.

Like Soojookoo, I haven't ever heard a single damn person try to claim that their sport is going to over take football in terms of popularity.

Really? Why then are we discussing this topic for the 5th or 6th time because of mma alone? If you've never heard it why are we talking about it right now?

So like him, I'm also inclined to believe you're talking rubbish.

Doesn't make me wrong and sure as hell doesn't make you right.

Thinking your sport is better than football is one thing (and that's fine) thinking it's going to become more popular is just ridiculous.

Yeah believing in the thing you love is ridiculous. I don't know how any of these athletes - especially the American ones who have probably never even seen a soccer game or met a soccer fan - could ever possibly say their sport would overtake the popularity of one who gets less airtime in their country than the latest reality show trying to find the next pop singer failure.
Damn! You sure showed me.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.
