    NHL the best. Football is boring as shit. One play lasts 10 seconds then they stand around grabbing each others asses for about 5 min. Baseball is a thinking mans game. Its the only sport where you can't posses the ball to prevent the other team from scoring. Each team gets equal opportunity at offence. Basketball is ok but whats the big deal when you are 7ft + and you can dunk? Soccer is popular because its cheap. Ive never watched one minute of cricket and probably never will. And aussie rules looks dann cool.

    People from 3rd world countries don’t understand how much money the American leagues pull in. They did get the #1 spot correct with the PL cause it’s the best league of the most popular sport.

    I see the NBA being the biggest sport in America in a couple years. NFL & MLB already in decline, don't get me wrong I love the NFL(Go Cardinals! #BIRDGANG). But I love the NBA a lil more.

    The american football is a dangerous and untraceable sport (for me) The players hunting and prostrate one players, everybody jump on the unlucky man, and the result is a human hill :D and the game is stopping for a few minutes... this is so slow and boring (for me) And dont exist american football world cup, because that almost play only in the US. In Europe, Asia, South America, Australia, Africa play someones the american football like a hobby sport, and it exist amateur clubs, if at all exists. And to the Football (soccer) have professional teams and leagues in every country in the world... including USA :)

    Best amatuer sport in the world is in Ireland 🇮🇪 The GAA HURLING (fastest field sport) AND FOOTBALL, Champions League football should have been mentioned and if it counts as a league the Six Nations rugby union should have been given a mention as well.

    Just for you to know.. Football (or soccer for some) is the biggest sport in 95% of the countries in the world. The English Premier League is the most expensive, most followed and watched league in the world and it is ignorant and stupid to deny it. Sure you don’t need to like football and sure it’s fine to follow other sports (I do as well). I think it’s very unlikely that IPL is going to beat UEFA Champions League, La Liga or Bundesliga what comes to expenditure, folllowers and viewers. Also I’d say NFL is bigger thing even though american football is not too popular outside US

    In terms of diversity, the top 4 European football leagues:
    The English Premier League
    La Liga
    Serie A
    are without a doubt the most diverse and global leagues in any sport. I have been to Nigeria, Morocco, Brazil, China, Japan, you cannot go sight seeing in Lagos without seeing at least a few DOZEN people with Arsenal or Man Utd kits. In Tokyo, Borussia Dormund and Barcelona on people, TV, buildings, and both airports I went to. Also in the nightclub I went with some friends I met.
    China is a table tennis country (I know.....), Manchester United have like 100 million fans there. AC Milan are still incredibly popular even after their recent form.

    • Dr Doggo
      Dr Doggo 12 дней назад

      Forgot UFC as well. You'll be surprised how many Nigerian footballers are interested in that. Still, I'd say they're #5 in terms of international viewers. Bayern Munich and Dortmund, and Milan and Inters fan bases in Asia is just too significant to say UFC is ahead of them.
