I have a feeling that if things dont get solved within the NFL that MLS will surpass American Football.Ever since the Union came to Philly (chester) soccers popularity has been booming.

I don't think any sport will surpass football in popularity in this country lock out or not. I do think that Soccer is growing in popularity and I'm a big fan of the Union and all but it's just not a sport that has as huge of an overall appeal considering the casual sports fan will have a tough time getting excited about a sport where most games end in a score of 1-0

Americans like scoring. The long TD pass. The booming home run. The blazing slapshot. The ridiculous dunk. Soccer offers none of these. There might be one play that is comprable to these in a soccer game, and the score is still 0-0 or 1-0.

The NHL eliminated ties and put rules in place to allow the star players to shine. The league is growing. I think soccer games would have to see at least 10-15 goals a game before American might get interested and where it might overtake the NHL for 4th place among the big 4 American sports. But otherwise, soccer is always going to be a niche sports among Americans.
