It is run by a bunch of morons who couldn't even tell you who won the last world cup.
When people want to talk down about Football they choose the grounds of world popularity. Honestly, popularity is all well and good but popularity isn't paying for players, nor is it building new stadiums. It's all preference, and Americans are spoiled because instead of having to revere 1 major sport. We get to enjoy 4....maybe 5. What does the rest of the world have? Rugby, cricket, and european handball? Give me a break.
Hahahaa everyday I love this guy more and more. No, homo!
