Five people voted on the question of why Rugby isn't more popular in the US.
60% - The youth of America didn't grow up with it.
40% - There is no money in it.
40% - Because we already have American football.
20% - Too violent.
20% - Bad reputation
20% - Other
I think this is rather hopeful. The majority opinion is that Rugby isn't more popular because it isn't what we grew up on. I will hopefully deduct that if we had grown up on it, it would be more popular. Therefore the effort to spread Rugby to the youth of America should result in the kind of growth and acceptance that soccer has seen in the past twenty years.
