Probably a good time for folks to stop continuing to claim soccer will never become a major sport in America. U.S. pro teams putting butts in the seats, more players drawing salaries above $1 million. Aside from Premiere league being on NBC each weekend complete with pre/post game commentary shows like the NFL, now Bundesliga in Germany is also broadcasting in the U.S. on FOX. Sport promotions TV commercials now airing on a regular basis leading up to each season.
All the basics in the road map to major sport status that were followed by the NFL, NBA, and Major League Baseball are being achieved. Has taken quite some time but step by step growth has moved the sport from once every 4 years attention to 3 pro leagues airing soccer games nation wide.
Track & Field can do this too.
