    Americans like soccer it's becoming the fastest growing sport in this country, there are other sports that have been more dominating for several years, and soccer is finally catching on in the U.S., at one time in the 70's soccer did rule America, check out this movie called Once in a Lifetime: The Story of the New York Cosmos, great movie about one man who brought socccer to America, and the one player who brought the fans to enjoy the game of soccer.....

    The ones that do love it. I guess you are a product of your environment and football (soccer) is not what they have grown up with as a sporting nation. We have the same problem in Australia to a degree, being brought up on League, Union, AFL and cricket, but fortunately that is changing and it's now the biggest sport participation wise for children. I guess as success comes so does popularity and the financial support needed to go to the next level and compete against the more accepted sports.

    Because we are already too into Football. There is an american soccer fan base out there it's just not known as much as Football.

    Because it is not a popular sport like it is in Europe. Sure the U.S. have MLS, but I don't think that it's shown quite often like football, basketball or baseball on regular TV channels.
