Seeing that the US is becoming more and more Hispanic, and soccer is extremely popular among the arriving Spanish speaking folks, it goes to follow that soccer will become more and more popular in the US over time.  And since many of the best soccer players in the world tend to play in the English or European leagues when the World Cup is not going on . . . well, you can guess the rest.

I think the retard faction thinks we're saying "Oh yeah, by 2016 soccer will be more popular."   It won't.   But there are children now who've never played or watched baseball but have played/watched soccer.   When they become adults, I don't see them suddenly becoming baseball fan.   Boxing didn't become irrelevant overnight but it is now.    I don't know that soccer will ever be more popular than baseball in the US but it's borderline stupid to not recognize it's on the uptick and interest in baseball is declining.

If that's the case, we should definitely make changes to the baseball hall of fame.

I see the typical MikeT argument strategy is in full swing. Make stupid comments, get proven wrong and either revert to pretending he didn't say what he actually said, or go all grade school with "refute me in 25 characters or less, or I win!!!"

I'm surprised you all have humoured the fat gas bag for this long.
