Why do you think I want it to be popular in the US, just out of interest? (You are wrong BTW.)
You want Americans to turn away from football and abandon it for soccer so soccer can globally be known as football like you feel it rightfully should be.

I don't get bothered by people calling it soccer, it would be silly considering the origin of the word.

I meet enough annoying football and basketball fans as it is. The idea that another sport might force me to have yet more sports conversations I want no part in is sickening. And when those sports fans try to blow smoke up my ass when I know nobody actually cares all I want is to push them down the stairs.

Luckily I know that whatever the truth is Fluff doesn't smell a whiff of it.

I don't like soccer. Nobody I know likes soccer either. However I do know there are some big-time fans out there in my country. Definitely wayyy more football fans, though.

And yet this has always been news to me so I question whether you are jerking it to the statistics that make you feel good just like Merit. Congrats, Flat Earther.

about 24.4 million people play soccer in the US. Sounds reasonably big to me, since first hand participation rates are ussually lower than simply watching a sport on TV.

Gallup numbers. They're a credible source for statistics.
