Link is farked for me (video will not load). Is Lennox Lewis losing to Evander Holyfield on the list? That was the last boxing match I paid to see. Never again.

They don't even really like association football over there. It's cricket, cricket, and more cricket.

Can't wait for the Bollywood version of the Hank Williams Monday Night football song!

I am an Indian and have a ton of friends to whom I taught NFL and they love it. The trick is to get them interested once, but this can be difficult enough as usually they don't care. But if you show us the money, we will do anything.

Cricket is now oversaturated in India with t20 format. There is not much interest and Indians are waiting for something else to add in the mix

You'd have to start the intro before 8 to get it done before kickoff.

This may sound incredibly racist/bigoted of me, but are the Indian people large enough for this to work? They got a billion people over there. Surly there are enough of them who are ripped and/or thick enough to compare to an NFL player.

Problem is that the United States has generations of knowledge on the topic of football that other countries don't have. It will never be an international sport in my lifetime.

It will be like olympic basketball. When the dream team went in '92, they were winning by 50. Fast forward to 2004, they got knocked out by Argentina and I think Greece too. US has the edge but the rest of the world can and will catch up. And football doesn't demand physical gifts as much as basketball does.
