Yeah, no kidding... like how baseball and basketball gut out the weather
also, soccer is now #3 in attendance for all sports in the US (ahead of basketball and hockey) and has more American viewership than all sports but football. The problem is that the US professional league isnt the best the world has, so many millions of soccer fans watch teams on cable and internet not located in the US. this creates this incorrect (and ignorant) understanding that soccer isnt "prominent"
Soccer is still behind our amateur sports, college football and college basketball. Now I have nothing against soccer. My 8 yo daughter had to play last week in 4" of snow, how can her team do it but not a bunch of paid adults?
