Charles wasn't talking about Europe. MLS is soccer so thanks for letting us know you follow it mate.

When I was working at Ebay they had the world series on all the T.V.s and a lot of soccer fans crawled out of the wood works. And other than my coworker who was on a soccer team, I don't think any of them were passionate enough about it to where a jersey or a team logo like they would with football, baseball or basketball. Or, hell, even hockey. But they're out there. I think it's more of a thing they like between preferred sports.

Third most attended sport (above NBA and NHL). Thanks.
And yet somehow my country you know nothing about gives a ****. It's pretty amazing how the third most attended sport in my country has not the slightest amount of hype.

I guess you'll never consider that any more than you'll consider anything else anyone has ever told you that you don't want to accept.

Good post.

I agree they are out there, despite what Charles thinks. The evidence is in the average attendances.

Thanks for your contribution, Lucem.

I still think Bat is too dismissive of 50,000 plus fans making it to the games but other countries donít get how sports crazy America is. Iíve compared soccer in Europe to college football in America. The numbers of fans who make it to games consistently in America are much higher than soccer in Europe. If MLS totals 1% of what football is here thatís still huge. Counting high school, college, and NFL and how woven into our cultural fabric football is 1% of that is huge.

It top trends on social media regularly. That is a decent amount of hype. Thanks.

NBA arenas are intentionally small. The season is 82 games. LeBron James alone is more famous than all of MLS combined.

Thanks Hawk.

Re: first bit I wouldn't even argue against that because it would be ridiculous. But like you say Charles is being too dismissive.

He gets very anxious and offended by this. I don't know why.

I get where Bat's coming from though. I never see or meet these illusive soccer fans.
