Why are American sports the best sports?
>>
>>64646317
most of our sports take intelligence, nihilism, and a wicked sense of humor.
>>
Because our sports our the rich man's sport. So it isn't international. Plus we have so many sports we can literally watch good games all year.
>>
>>64646317
in before AMERICA IS ALSO SOUTH AMERICA
>>
>>64648605
This

It requires money to play our sports.
Soccer literally only requires something to kick around and an empty space.
>>
>>64648721
>>64648605
100% this.

3rd worlders only have a boner for soccer because its their only sport by default. Everything else requires actual equipment
>>
>>64646317
because we have american athletes to play them and not pussy europoors
>>
>>64649026
>>64648605
Yes, that is exactly why everyone in my HS played basketball, as well as all the inner city kids. It is also why baseball is popular in 3rd world latin countries and half the jocks in eastern Europe play hockey.

Shouldn't you be getting invaded or something? Why are you here?
>>
>>64651720
Shouldn't you be getting your president's home getting burnt down by canadians?
>>
There is at least an effort to create parity in the leagues. Every league in Soccer is won by only a handful of teams.
What's the point of rooting for anybody except Real or Barca in Spain?
>>
>>64652074
What does that even mean?

Stay mad that you live in the most irrelevant nation in the world.
>>
>>64653651
You can't use a draft for soccer. It's literally impossible. A salary cap would do so much good for the top level leagues in soccer. Success is determined by money and money alone in soccer. I can't even imagine supporting a sport where your success is determined by how much worth your owner sees in a soccer team.
>>
>>64646317
baseball, it seems we have a good national team thanks to our colonies
>>
>>64648721
But it doesn't
>>
>>64649026
>>64648721
then explain why cricket, which requires more equipement than any American sport, is the most popular sport in shitholes like India, Bangladesh and Jamaica.
>>
>>64646317
because they're professionally designed around television/live audiences as entrrtainment business rather than fun hobbies people liked to play and naturally evolved into a modern sport
>>
>>64654969
cricket doesnt require more than football m8
>>
>>64655101
You can play that without all the pads and shit just like rugby
>>
>>64655101
or hockey
>>
>>64655101
>adwatch
pads, shoes, helmet, egg
>pakipaddle
two leg guards, gloves, helmet, bat, leather ball, two wickets
>>
>>64655423
hockey requires a lot. even games with friends on tax paid free outdoor rinks with no pads still require you to have skates and a stick and possibly your own goal unless it's provided by the city/whoever manages public parks etc.

amateur level "serious games" require easily a thousand bucks worth of equipment just to participate
>>
>>64655628
How much does a cricket helmet cost?

http://www.riddell.com/shop/on-field-equipment/helmets/riddell-speedflex-helmet.html
>>
>>64655628
>football
helment, chinstrap, shoulder pads, thigh pads, hip pads, knee pads, possibly a rib guard, jockstrap, gloves, cleats, two enormous metal sets of goalposts, twelve pylons, down marker, chains
At a middle school level

>povertypaddle
poor brown people
>>
>>64656083
Hip pads aren't really a thing anymore after middle school. But since you mentioned middle school in your post it counts.

Most players don't do jock straps anymore. They usually wear $30 a pair compression shorts now.
