I find it extremely hard to believe that Americans don't know how big football is on a global level.

Regardless, right this second, in total across the world, football is the biggest sport in the world. It might not be the most popular in YOUR country, but if you have any sort of cultural awareness you will know how big it is. I dont watch handegg because it's one guy throwing a ball to another, then he gets tackled and the whole thing restarts. That doesnt mean that Im not aware of how popular the NFL is.

EDIT: Grapple, rephrase to just "soccer" in general. English football seems like you're referring to the premiership alone.


Guys... we all know in America that Soccer is the biggest sport in the world. Now obviously i dont know everyone in America but every GUY iv ever met knows that soccer is the most popular sport. This is a common fact that we all knew even back in highschool.

Now TBH im not sure if alot of the Female population would know that. But yes 99.9% of the guy population does know Soccer is the biggest sport in the world. No doubt in my mind about this. Iv been around this discussion plenty of times and iv never met anyone think or say otherwise.

Where did you grow up? Most of the people in my city didn't even know we had a soccer team much less that it was the most popular sport in the world. Most of the people I know still think the Superbowl is the most watched sporting event in the world.

And it's amazing that that common of a fact that 99% of the men would know is unknown by women. Damned vaginas cockblocking soccer!

California.

Well its pretty common for Women and Men to not know the exact same thing depending on if its a male thing or a female thing. Sports is usually a guy thing and such they know more about it.

That said... i did say that i DO NOT KNOW if women know soccer is the most popular sport in the world. I cant recall ever having that conversation with a female. So i dont want to give my input if i dont know..

Okay bud.

I dont know how that is ignorant

but

okay...


And btw

Most people i know cant stand soccer. They dont hang around people who like soccer. Yet they know its the most popular sport in the world.

This is just one of those facts everyone knows. Im shocked to hear that there are people out there that wouldnt know that.

I could walk up to ten people on the street in any random town in America and 9 of them will not know that soccer is the most popular sport in the world.

I lived in multiple major cities. Kansas City, ST. Louis, Houston, Dallas, New Orleans, Miami, Denver, and now - for the first time - I live in a small town. How about you?

To be fair, that polling Americans on the street thing isn't the best idea.
