    So the increase in ratings is among Spanish-language networks? AKA the one audience where soccer popularity is already an established fact?

    Once again, more BS from the American soccer media. Soccer being popular amongst the one demo in the U.S. that it’s always been popular in is not news. And this just confirms that, as usual, amongst the rest of the American public, soccer does not matter. Which isn’t news either. And it never will matter. Which isn’t news, again.

        Jmac – What about African Americans, Native Americans, and other minorities? They don’t count?
