Okay - according to Google, if you put in "popular football teams in the world" and search, you get these links.
Sub links of the last
So... Yeah... Umm... Those are 2 discussion threads for soccer and the rest is for the NFL. I guess I am not following your whole "Third point its just bullshit, just write most popular football team in the world and you will see what I'm talking about." bit of logic, but it's cool. As for the "personal experience" bit, what else do you go off of maggs? You hear someone's opinion and you use that for your logic; are you not using your personal experience? I'm sorry if it's different in the major hub of where soccer is played, but the same rings true for the NFL and America... Just like I am sure it's true for Rugby and Australia. Japan and baseball. Russia and gymnastics - what the local sport is will always be talked about the most. That doesn't mean the world has to follow suit and do what you think they should. That's almost as ignorant as the US fans thinking you guys should call it soccer and recognize the NFL as being the only "football" in the world.
Also, seriously check my facts. I enjoy learning, but I don't want you to take my word for it. I want you to challenge me to defend my position and prove that I know what I am talking about, not just give me the benefit of doubt.
How do you know it would generate more? You donâ€™t... And seriously, if you are going to take into consideration multiple matches, rather than the ACTUAL World Cup, then I am also going to take into thought the Wildcard Playoffs, AFC and NFC Championships, and the final 2 weeks of the season (that determine a playoff berth) because that is exactly why the WC has so many weeks. To determine who gets to go to the championship. You might host Spain vs. Honduras one week, but itâ€™s comparable to us having the NE Pats vs. Balt Ravens for the AFC title. Neither match is for the championship but has implications as to who will make it to the championship. So if you are talking about taking the full MONTH that is the WC, I say we take from the final week of the NFL, through the Playoffs, and to the SB into thought. Take those numbers, crunch them, and see who comes out more profitable... Hereâ€™s a hint â€“ Itâ€™s not going to be Portugal vs. Germany.
