Spurs are my favourite English team actually. Well, obviously pre-AVB with his "I should sell all the best players" strategy. Redknapp is the best English manager aswell. I just mean, they are a team that goes 1 for 1 with Champions League qualifications (along with Liverpool and Chelsea), where as a while back Ronaldo etc. would be in teams that qualify for the CL everytime uncontested.

And? Brazil is hosting 2014 world cup. They will be fine. Also, Brazil went nearly 20 years of poor results and that didn't harm Brazil's love for the sport

I don't think MMA will ever be bigger than football just don't see it as a possibility and its just more hyping up MMA from an MMA fighter

Why are you getting so defencive? All I said was that the Brazil national team isn't doing that well in comparrison to it's 2002 team, which is a fact.

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.

Not of a dude saying how great their sport is. One saying it will be the biggest in the world one day. You said, specifically, that you hear it all the time.

Whatever. If you are a professional sports person and have no idea how big football is, then you are an idiot. Period.

Umm... no. If you have no exposure to something then there is no reason to know anything about it. Magic the Gathering tournaments get damn near as much time on ESPN as soccer does here. You don't understand. It's not that soccer isn't big here. Soccer is barely existent here. Soccer - here - is something that little kids play when they can't play the other sports.

Missouri in the US but I've been all over the country at one point or another. Why?
