I live in the u.s. ive played both soccer and football. It's not even close, football has 1% of the skill compared to soccer. If you've never played you dont know its not easy it takes alot more work then football. Football season is august to january *if* you make the playoffs. European soccer season august to may then friendlys in the 3 month off season or world cup/euros. No less you actually have to be in shape to play, no lbs fat asses needing oxygen on the sidelines. Football = big in the us. Soccer = The world. Come talk to me when football can pull close to a billion viewers. And yes the us is shit, i cant wait to get the fuck out of here.
