Boca v River: the Libertadores final South America has waited 58 years for | Guardian Football

Yeah, I’m just pointing it out that if people have a easily accessible superior leagues around them, they are much less likely to pick up smaller leagues and teams and follow them. I’m an European and fully admit that I don’t follow any of the American football leagues on a daily basis, I am going to watch the Libertadores finals tho, but overall I’m not well informed about those leagues and teams. But I do watch NBA and follow it daily because it’s superior to the European leagues and it’s really interesting. I think it’s vice versa for Americans. They do watch European football leagues because it’s superior to their leagues, but they don’t really care or want to watch European basketball leagues because it’s inferior to their league. Not everyone is like that obviously, but I’d dare to say that the vast majority.
