Football Fail


In short:

American football has been a failure overseas for decades, unable to attract a foundation of support. The only loyal followers are ex-pats and mildly curious soccer/rugby fans who might attend an annual major event such as this weekend's game in London. On a day to day basis, it has no long-term viability.
