Comments about Baseball and American Football are true.
I mean, look how much more professional Rugby and Cricket players make. If major league baseball players and NFL players were better athletes, they'd quit and play Cricket and Rugby where all the money is. And if baseball and NFL paid more, maybe all those incredible Rugby and Cricket players might take an interest in those pussy faggot sports.

American Football is merely Rugby ... with padding so the little darling's don't hurt their little heads.
Don't hold the race card up - especially if you're a naive colonial who has no clue about the origins of things your country stole from others. Like the country itself. The language. Hell, pretty much everything really.

I didn't claim that cricket is superior to baseball - even though it certainly is - I just said that the catches in baseball are nuch simpler thanks to those gloves. Cricket has the same catches made with bare hands and hence is more demanding.
Or in other words, a cricket player could pick up baseball faster than a baseball could pick up cricket.
P.S. good job judging international popularity by whether americans like it; turns out there are a whole bunch of nations out there.

Moan about cricket all you want, but cricket is much more popular than baseball. Viewership is in the billions.
The Cricket World Cup actually has teams from around the world competing, whereas the baseball World Series has teams from... where?

Yeah, sure. Cricket is much more exciting and interesting and golly no wonder everyone plays it. Which ESPN is that on, again? Eighteen? Oh look it has eleven different names for the way the ball comes off the bat. You play with partners and trade places and wear the same enormous leg pads we do but don't have gloves. Good shit.
Never fails someone shows up and proclaims a foreign sport superior to "American Football" or "American Rounders" or even basketball. Maybe half the people that do this are American hipsters. You're the same as us, whoever you are.

Only in baseball is that considered a surprisingly good catch. Watch some cricket and you will see the same sort of shit, but without gloves.

I love the batter's disbelief at what he just saw.
