How long before football become more popular than soccer in this world? What do you think? Clearly football is superior to soccer, how long before the is a REAL football world cup that is more popular than soccer?

Since football is played, at some level, in every country in the world, how much more real do you want it? By the way, soccer is a term used in very few countries, primarily Australia and america, because these two have there own wee game which nae bugger else cares about. For all the rest, the round ball code is football.

Aussie rules, fagball or aerial ping pong is a hybrid of Rugby, Gaelic and a few other minor codes which suited an early colonial population. The strange game Americans play, with the more body armour than a combat soldier, two completely separate teams for one side, and a strict policy of 'one up, one out' and NEVER pass the ball has managed to make big tough looking blokes act like bloody Jessies.

It's probably worth noting that neither of these trite local entertainments subscribe to the doping codes that ALL international codes observe.
