Americans are in love with giants smashing into each other and knocking each other brains out, soccer, which is played with a lot of skill as well as endurance, not physical strength. We prefer watching a hard collision than Lionel Messi pirouette through a defense. In the eyes of Americans, the finesse of soccer makes it boring and the players seem like panzies. As well, the 90 minute time period with onky a few goals per game makes the average viewer weary if they dont know whats going on. American football has 6 points for a touchdown, which can be scored on any play, giving an aura of explosivness, while soocer takes more time generally to set up a goal. A game of soccer that ends 7-6 is a classic goal-fest, while in American football, that is an incredibly low scoring, boring game.
l The game is gathering more of a following, but it won't become as widely followed as most Other countries because our best athletes are playing American football or basketball, so our teams won't be on the level of the giants like Brazil or Spain
