1. Gaelic and Aussie Rules football make good use of kicking of the ball. American Football has kicks, and the foot can be used to score points, but of all forms of football it is the one that uses the foot least
2. Rugby is technically known as rugby football (the Rugby Football League governing rugby league football, and the Rugby Football Union governing rugby union football), as it is a form of football first played at Rugby School. Most players refer to the ball as a 'football'

Your armpit of a country is a degeneracy factory. It has more trannies, nonces, faggots, junkies, derelicts, lunatics, etc. per capita than any western nation. Our minority problems pale into insignificance when compared to yours. Not only that, but your minority problems are largely home grown, whereas ours are imported. They're a problem of your own making; something your culture created. They ARE you. Your country is dying. It's a progerian state; it is simultaneously going through puberty and its death throes - and you're too stupid to do anything about it. We will outlast you. Every western nation will. You're lucky we even post here; that we tolerate your presence, you disgusting sub human wretch.

Tell me /sp/, how does a company become relevant at a sport? Qatar obviously has money to spend. They can build facilities, air conditioned arenas, hire foreign trainers and coaches to teach their kids to git gud at football. Pretty sure the reason they haven't gone all out is that they're too short sighted to plan for the future and just want a World Cup contending team now instead of waiting years for their kids to graduate from a proper training program.

Creo que era inevitable que pasara. Cosas como la Champions y el mundial venden mucho, mientras que la liga nacional de beisbol esta medio muerta.

india is a "powerhouse" in the capitalist, commercial sense; a billion + eyeballs for pepsi commercials and whatnot, no naturally they generate the most revenue for ICC (fifa equivalent of cricket). This gives india a lot of leverage and they wield it in their favour. Sad really, because it's hurting the international development of the game.

Cricket is a great game, one of the few where the captain and the decision he makes on the field can have a massive effect on the outcome of the game. I'd actually love to see us play cricket; it's like baseball but you know, the not retarded version of it.

There might be some Filipinos that are good at billiards, but that doesn't mean Filipinos care about the sport. Filipinos aren't logical creatures, m8. One of the best chess players in the world is a Filipino who left the country for the United States because the Philippines wouldn't fund him. That Filipino weightlifter who won the first gold medal even in the Philippines, history, she won a silver medal years before. Still she had to beg on social media for donations to buy weights when she got stuck in Thailand during the whole Covid shit and had no access to equipment. Filipinos didn't give a shit about her until after she won the gold medal. Meanwhile the Filipino basketball team who's only ranked 40 something in the world gets all the attention and funding, because it's basketball okay??

Filipinos don't see other Filipinos doing well at a sport and think, hey maybe we should fund these people so that they can get proper training. Or maybe start programs so more Filipinos can git gud at billiards. All they think about is LOL basketball is fun. We're going to play basketball LOL. We're going to watch basketball. Oh we lost again? That's okay, we'll definitely win the gold medal in basketball at the Olympics next time LOL.

you sold gave new Netherlands to the english in a peace settlement in a war you arguably won. New Netherlands was seen as weak and hard to defend (as it was taken easily by the english in the war) so you decided it was best to hand it over in a peace settlement so you could get more favorable terms in other regions that were seen as more profitable (sugar producing colonies)

Then of course Manhattan turned into the most valuable piece of real estate on the planet kek.

>>125623809
In your example of weightlifting, it correctly applies there's no money in the sport. The opposite is true with billiards there as it has high enough payouts to attract top international players for events. It's the biggest money sport there, maybe second to boxing though most of their top talent goes overseas for boxing. Idk about state funding of sports that you reference

As for the mutts, read this article.

And add to that the record numbers reached by MLS this season, shich include:
*Most watched grand final since 1997.
*Highest ever total attendance (10M), while its average attendance rdmaind stable.
*Highest average TV viewers for the regular season since 2007, and up 16% from last season.
*Highest ever attendance for a single game (74,5k people went to see Charlotte FC's debut).
And next season they will kick off a 250M/year partnership with AppleTV, more than double than their former broadcast rights deal.
Women's soccer also reached some good numbers, as the NWSL finally broke the million mark for its 2022 regular season, with pretty decent average attendance numbers.
So yeah, the game is definitely growing, and will keep doing so in the foreseeable future.

Hey Mexico Anon. Every English speaking county in the world besides England calls it Soccer. England called it Soccer until the 80s. American football was created about 100 years before that. American football is called football because it's based off Rugby football.

Soccer is for pussies

Cricket overall because the whole country watches it. But if you ask anyone their favourite spore they're going to say Aussie rules or rugby league depending on the state. Everyone will have cricket as number 2 though.

I recently wondered why baseball was number one in Japan and soccer number two and checked on the history. After the claps opened up Japland with their black ships under Perry in the 1850s, they brought baseball with them to Japan. Sometimes later baseball was introduced as a team sport in japanese schools, but at the same time the claps had clap only clubs. in the 1870ish with nationalism on the rise, a jap high school challenged an amerilard only club and won. this was the first proper victory and boosted the popularity of baseball in Japan. The claps not wanting to be shamed by this, challenged a lesser skilled highschool and got BLOWN THE FUCK OUT AGAIN, which max boosted baseball over soccer in Japland.

its because the world cup is a 4 year gimmick
people play it a lot because its the least demanding major sport and fun to kick around a ball sometimes and you wont get hurt
you have to have committed to playing AFL/rugby/cricket as a child to be able to play it

>Hey, nearly a million people watched the team in the World Cup
No fucking shit lad, it's the World Cup; it's once every four years and the hype is real.

That doesn't mean people consistently give a fuck about soccer. That's like saying the number one sport in the world is track, because 3 billion people watched the 100m Final in the Olympics lmao

america invented American football because we would render all other countries completely irrelevant if we gave the slightest shit about soccer, which we don't. Thank your local American tourists right now for graciously allowing you to enjoy divegrass without getting dominated by us every single year.
