Even though these sports have lower participation numbers than football.There are no steroids in football and Americans value large muscle and high school sports are dominated by steroids.Football is the only team sport in America that grows on a yearly basis.Girdiorn and baseball have yet to be seen as global sports, they are simply niche sports.
