That's not the point. Even though none of you are exposed to much football, you all know full well how massive it is around the globe. Is there a single american poster on here who doesn't know that on a global scale football is obscenely popular? Even if you do think it is completely dumb. Lets see a show of hands.
Actually most Americans don't know that. They have no exposure to it. When they see a piece about it on the news it is literally treated as some throw away story. Literally as if it is just that game the Brits like. That's how it is represented in American media. That is it's full attention.
That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.
