Default Re: Football v American Football

Quite right Bob.

I think perhaps where these idea stem from is that due to cable TV, people outside the US are seeing many US games. Often at the expense of their own. For example, last year I went to a Returned Servicemens club to have a quiet beer and watch a cricket test match. I was quite stunned to see a baseball game on screen and had to ask the barmaid to change the channell so I could watch the Aussie cricket team.

Of course in Australia we've always had the English league soccer on our TV's. So we may be more used to it. For a while I saw so many games played by the Cleveland Indians I began to know what was happening. And I've no real interest in baseball. All this by accident.
