Many would argue that college football is indeed bigger than the NFL.From a live attendance point of view,way bigger.
There are around 8+ colleges with ground capacities of 100k plus and lots with 90k plus stadiums and in most cases they sell out.
From a television point of view,monies generated from advertising and viewing figures,the NFL.
As regards the Super League,high school foofball is massive with school stadiums having 50K stadiums,and again sell out in lots of games.

The point about rugby league taking off in the US is questionable,they do have some teams in the US but as far as i know,and i will stand corrected,it is not played in schools or colleges.I think the yanks would television wise enjoy it but as far as taking off as a school participation sport,not much hope.
There is a growing trend in the US that parents are steering there kids away from "football" due to the high number and frequent head injuries that are being highlighted.So i cant see many parents wanting to see there offspring playing an equally brutal sport without all the padding.

RL is not equally brutal. Almost every professional football player carries a serious brain injury. Our sport doesn't come close.

For this reason you can see the gap in the US market. A low cost contact sport that doesn't maim every single participant but can be picked up quickly by football players could be popular. The talent pool in the US is vast but there are few opportunities for athletes that don't make it at the top level.

ryan mason who plays for hull city had to retire today because of his head injury sustained in a game last year v spurs, heading the football also brought into question too, so yes your right it isnt just rugby or nfl

I very much doubt that every player carries a serious brain injury in fact I'm certain your very wrong on that

In one study 96% of nfl players' brains examined had chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

Your certainty is misplaced.

I didnt word my post very well,let me clarify.
The phrase equally brutal are not my words,like you i dont agree either,but that of my family and friends over i the US.My daughter in law and mother to 3 of my grandsons has watched both over here and on tv over there lots of rugby league,having married a rugby league nut.She will not let any of her boys anywhere near "football" or,not that theres much chance,rugby(both codes).This goes for most of the rest of the family and friends with young boys.They also consider rugby,both codes dangerous,again their words not mine.
I see your point about about footballers not making the big time,there are some great athletes who dont but i think it would be extremely difficult to get league off the ground among youngsters.Given the ongoing furore with football at present in the US another physical contact sport might be a bridge to far.Surprisingly football,their soccer seems to be flying under the radar regarding head injuries and seems to be one of the "new popular sports" of choice of parents in the US.
You are right as well regardingbrain injuries,a very high percentage of current and past ex pros have been found to have brain deformaties.

Hull will give us a tough game but the key is to silence their fans in the Threepenny Stand.We have to do this because if we do'nt they will get behind their side and lift them in a way you've never seen,heard or witnessed before.
