America hands down for the NFL, MLB, and NBA. I do like Australian Football and Australian Rugby League though.

Football, rugby, cricket all have major worldwide participation to a high level. The same simply can't be said for American sports. Is there an American Football World Cup with 32 countries that embrace it. Rugby & Cricket also have major tournaments with fewer nations but is played professionally on a worldwide scale.

I really don't care if America is better or not. All I know is this: there's a reason why it's
"America vs. Europe/Rest of the World" and not "Europe vs. America/Rest of the World." The thread title pretty much says all I need to know.

America, if only because Hockey is the greatest sport in the world, and America packs 100,000 people for glorified youth league(18-23) games in college football.

Look at the history & tradition of the football & rugby world cups, football especially and the audiences they pull in on a world scale. Over 3m people attended those games at the last two tournaments over a month. The last time it pulled in less than 1.5m in attendances waa 1962.

The World Cup was first televised in 1954 and is now the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world, exceeding even the Olympic Games. The cumulative audience of all matches of the 2006 World Cup is estimated to be 26.29 billion. 715.1 million individuals watched the final match of this tournament (a ninth of the entire population of the planet). The 2006 World Cup draw, which decided the distribution of teams into groups, was watched by 300 million viewers.

Enjoying that AHL are you? While top players are doing their thing in Europe?
But hey, gives them a chance to see a REAL hockey crowd. Not that shitty NHL one.

It all comes down to where you're from and what sports you are emotionally attached to. It's all about what you prefer and that doesn't make something better or worse. I can enjoy any sport if I get emotionally attached to it or at least understand it. Apart from golf. Golf is a poxy game for poxy blokes to pretend their poxy selves are sporty when they are not.

Let me sum golf up for you.

Some wealthy white fellows walk around. They pay unusual amounts of attention to the only black gentleman in the vicinity. There’s some waggling of hips, a few nice swooshing sounds, and then they walk around a bit more. Some standing around now and a bit of looking at the grass. A fat bloke raises his hands at the end and everybody claps. They give him some clothes and he is pleased.

This lasts a few days.
