Some differing points of view, thanks to YouTube:
First, John Cleese with the typical “rest-of-the-world” take on American Football vs. Soccer
Second, Jim Rome with multiple explanations of why Americans will never consider Soccer as a major sport worthy of any sane person’s attention.
What is my view, you ask? Personally, I am a typical American. I would rather watch paint dry than watch soccer. So, I heartily endorse Jim Rome’s arguments. I also am quite disappointed in John Cleese. He has lived in the United States for decades. One would think that should be sufficient time to see the light. 😆
