Unfortunately, no. American football is simply too powerful in this country, and soccer has never really taken off...at least, not since the third place finish in the 1930 Cup.
While American soccer is on the rise, there are still some things to notice:
1. While overall strategies in soccer may be complex, they rarely involve more than three players in an area at once. Thus, to the television audience (the largest for any sporting event), there are only a few players on-screen at a time.
Compare this to football, where all 11 offensive and usually at least 6 of the defensive players are together at once.
2. Soccer takes place in two 45-minute uninterrupted halves. No American has that kind of attention span. We, as a culture, are much more drawn to the quick, two-minute plays of football or, at most, a 20-minute college basketball half.
3. This is the big one. Scoring doesn't happen enough with soccer to make it a major American sport.
Our culture is drawn to big plays, and a slide tackle just doesn't cut it. We want big goals, and they don't happen enough in soccer. That actually goes a long way to explaining the arena football craze today.
4. Americans hate ties.
Look at the baseball All-Star game that ended in a tie. It's considered a travesty of American sports. Hockey, slow as usual, has implemented a penalty shot rule to end ties. We want winners and losers, and playing to a nil-nil draw will end a sport in American eyes in a hurry.
It's sad, because soccer is a beautiful sport. But in the end, unless there comes a real cultural renaissance in sport, America just isn't made for it.
