USA is the only country that hates football like that

Plenty Americans are ignorant about football, but not as much as people think and it is changing fast.  Imagine 3 of the 5 nominees for play of the year on the ESPY's were football (soccer)...including an EPL & an MLS play...The eventual winner being Abby Wambach...that was a voter driven category so that says alot!! During the World Cup, here in NYC bars were packed during working hours with Americans (not immigrants) running away from their offices to watch the matches... On the Saturday of the CL final same thing...I know NYC is not the best reflection of America, but take a look at the average MLS crowd during the season - at one point it was about 30K per game (average eh!!!)...it's probably more now....In Seattle the Sounders are reportedly the most widely followed sporting franchise in the city (not sure how they measure that)... Take a look at Seattle home games when the sounders play...It's insane!...more atmosphere than alot of EPL games I watch

The America hates football mentality is as much cliche as it is reality.  The largest amount of tix bought for the WC in South Africa were bought by people based in the ....USA (not a perfect stat of course but still has some meaning)....I think WC 2006 stats were close/similar.... It's the only country in the world that has so many competing sports with a market share larger than football, so naturally there will be obstacles to the sport's growth and there will always be the old boys club, particularly in middle America who has been born and bred on football, basketball and baseball.....but all in all, America loves football more than most give them credit for.

Probably the media causes it , because most comments on the net and tv , they act like Football is crap

Most Americans (media included) only love "Soccer" when they are winning! Serious talk! Don't mix up the large number who play the game with those who watch, it's 2 different thing.

I have to deal with parents everyday who have kids playing the game and the parents don't know one thing about the game and never watch a game unless their kid is playing. The good thing about it, some of these kids take it seriously and are very good. So hopefully it would all change in the future.

Big Up!

Bakes and Kicker thank you guys for your responses pertaining to de whole Americans doh like football topic. I'm glad there are fellahs like you on dis forum that could 'check' men/women and set de record straight, cause sadly it have grown, impressionable PEOPLE on dis forum who will take some shyte somebody say and go runnng wid it.

De thing is you guys might have to do this every so often cause it seems as though, every so often this topic comes up...so keep up de good work of edifying de masses, Captain America out:)

nice pics dhw. Hope this victory over my team usa can propel football in Japan ...As for the USA football will always be concidered an "outsider"  sport because there is no support for the national team by people who claim they love the sport and live in this country call  USA..
war

That is a rel shame, its amazing how USA feels NFL , Baseball etc is gods gift to man , when the majority of the world doesn't care for it

Neither of these posts makes any sense.

First off War the US national teams are well-supported... every game that ESPN broadcast showed lots of fans in the stadiums, even in these ketch-ass times.  Same for the men last year in S. Africa.  In the Gold Cup they traveled all over the country supporting the team... CONCACAF just was greedy in putting it in LA because they wanted a big stadium (the venue held 90K+) and wanted to ensure a sellout.  This is why there were so many Mexicans... the Confederation knew them Mexicans would pay whatever price to come to the game.  So I dunno where you getting this "the team not supported by those who claim they love the sport" talk from.


DHW... I doh even know your rationale for concluding that Americans think "the NFL, baseball etc." is God's gift to man.  The way you acting is as though they trying to shove it down people throat.  To begin with there's not national push by the gov't or any other body to force the sports on the rest of the world... so this isn't about "Americans".  NFL and MLB smart... they watching how basketball growing around the world (how come yuh eh complain about that?).  Same thing ManU and Liverpool doing in Asia is the same thing the NFL trying to do... increase it's global footprint so as to sell more merchandise.   It eh have nutten to do with "God's gift to man" unless God's gift to man is money.

bakes am talking bout people like we who leaves trinidad , come here and live our life and hate USA Football team .. hate to see the stadium pack , hate to see our African american brother wearing the american jersey. but yet we support them full hearted when they playing basketball.. I support my adopted country once it does not come up against Jamaica and trinidad and tobago.. How could you support football but dont support the upliftment of it here in your adopted country has me bewildered..I honestly feal sey if you living here you should have no reason to support everybody but USA.. I dont believe theese pppl love football they jes loveseeing usa Loose!!!!!!!!!!!
as I say if India come to play USA I voting for USA I am a TRini American and will support this country football for the rest of my life dats the only way football will reach this country and "white and black " america will not see it as a sissy sport.....

Yeah well I doh support no team blindly... especially not because ah living in de country or carrying de passport.  I definitely doh support no kick and chase football or a developmental system still waiting tuh wean itself from the post WWII teats of moribund countries like Germany and the British Isles.  To Germany's credit it has recognized the vibrancy of it's multinational youth population and embraced the diversity of both ethnicity and style. 

The European ex-pats who seeded this American system we have today didn't have time fuh dat and they Yankee prodigies ent have time for it yet.  I surprised to read in the wake of Japan's win... how many people, regular fans and columnists, calling for America to diversify not only the ethnic makeup of the team but also the style of play.  You have sons... I bet whenever yuh son and dem kicking ball in AYSO de coach does still get on dem fuh holding onto the ball and the parents does yell from de sidelines how they "being selfish".  I cyah support dat kinda stifling, talent killing nonsense.


.... leh we eh even talk about the obnoxious ass fans and dem.

Less than 1% of 300 million people will fill any stadium anywhere, so don't get tie up with American football hype.
Americans do not like football.  Hence, their commentators have to keep selling their team when on the air.  It's  simply a push to prove why they should be on air in the first place.  ::) That's why they talk about the team before the game, it's all hype for ratings.  The general public is ignorant bout football but they appreciate world sporting dominance.  

2 reasons I will be a hater of US football.  :devil:
1. If your not respectful you won't be respected
2. If every time your team fails you throw them under a bus, there's something a work here beyond the love of the sport.
In Everything give thanks for this is the will of God concerning you.

That is a rel shame, its amazing how USA feels NFL , Baseball etc is gods gift to man , when the majority of the world doesn't care for it

Yuh mean like when they identify the winner of the various championships,  as 'World Champions', when it may have only involved two teams from the US and sometimes maybe from  Canada competing in a finals?

nice pics dhw. Hope this victory over my team usa can propel football in Japan ...As for the USA football will always be concidered an "outsider"  sport because there is no support for the national team by people who claim they love the sport and live in this country call  USA..
war

That is a rel shame, its amazing how USA feels NFL , Baseball etc is gods gift to man , when the majority of the world doesn't care for it

Yuh mean like when they identify the winner of the various championships,  as 'World Champions', when it may have only involved two teams from the US and sometimes maybe from  Canada competing in a finals?

Exactly!!

Less than 1% of 300 million people will fill any stadium anywhere, so don't get tie up with American football hype.
Americans do not like football.  Hence, their commentators have to keep selling their team when on the air.  It's  simply a push to prove why they should be on air in the first place.  ::) That's why they talk about the team before the game, it's all hype for ratings.  The general public is ignorant bout football but they appreciate world sporting dominance.  

2 reasons I will be a hater of US football.  :devil:
1. If your not respectful you won't be respected
2. If every time your team fails you throw them under a bus, there's something a work here beyond the love of the sport.
Padnah that's where you are wrong. The disconnect in the sports lies with those who are commentators.
There's that American thing that says that ex-players make the best sport announcers and most Amercians who are into soccer are just as critical of them as we are. The fault lies squarely on the shoulders on the broadcasting companies as they are following a typical American model. Howard Cossell was always critical of athletes becoming announcers as most lack the ability to provide cogent analysis e.g. Julie Foudy and Alexis Lalas. So what they do is listen to what American football and basketball announcers do and apply it to soccer.

With regards to disrespect it is only because we as Trinis doh have nuttin to be arrogant about that we come off as haters. Look how Brazilians act yet we are not critical...you cyah fault de people because dey team doing well.

Maybe if we threw our players under the bus they would have more national pride.

Neither of these posts makes any sense.

First off War the US national teams are well-supported... every game that ESPN broadcast showed lots of fans in the stadiums, even in these ketch-ass times.  Same for the men last year in S. Africa.  In the Gold Cup they traveled all over the country supporting the team... CONCACAF just was greedy in putting it in LA because they wanted a big stadium (the venue held 90K+) and wanted to ensure a sellout.  This is why there were so many Mexicans... the Confederation knew them Mexicans would pay whatever price to come to the game.  So I dunno where you getting this "the team not supported by those who claim they love the sport" talk from.


DHW... I doh even know your rationale for concluding that Americans think "the NFL, baseball etc." is God's gift to man.  The way you acting is as though they trying to shove it down people throat.  To begin with there's not national push by the gov't or any other body to force the sports on the rest of the world... so this isn't about "Americans".  NFL and MLB smart... they watching how basketball growing around the world (how come yuh eh complain about that?).  Same thing ManU and Liverpool doing in Asia is the same thing the NFL trying to do... increase it's global footprint so as to sell more merchandise.   It eh have nutten to do with "God's gift to man" unless God's gift to man is money.

bakes am talking bout people like we who leaves trinidad , come here and live our life and hate USA Football team .. hate to see the stadium pack , hate to see our African american brother wearing the american jersey. but yet we support them full hearted when they playing basketball.. I support my adopted country once it does not come up against Jamaica and trinidad and tobago.. How could you support football but dont support the upliftment of it here in your adopted country has me bewildered..I honestly feal sey if you living here you should have no reason to support everybody but USA.. I dont believe theese pppl love football they jes loveseeing usa Loose!!!!!!!!!!!
as I say if India come to play USA I voting for USA I am a TRini American and will support this country football for the rest of my life dats the only way football will reach this country and "white and black " america will not see it as a sissy sport.....
