    Back in the 80's I went to half a dozen Man Utd games with some friends that were big Man Utd fans. The last game of the season that particular year was against a relegated Aston Villa and there was about 28,000 on with a good 4,000+ Villa.
    It was pathetic.

    They were low times for that club.

    On the flipside I watched them v Liverpool and there was around 56,000 on.

    We already have the lower leagues in this country for people who want to watch grass roots football, like the College leagues in the US. The attendances and viewing figures for the NFL dwarf those of the college leagues.
    I think you need to check you figures on College attendances. Alabama average home attendance was 101K and the highest NFL average home attendance was the Dalas Cowboys at 92K average, Auburn the second rated College team in Alabama drew an average of more than 90K which is still better than Green Bay the second best attended NFL team.

    Hardly dwarfed by the NFL,

    Just because the College game is not promoted much outside the US never underestimate its popularity in the US especially south of the Mason Dixon Line.

    Posted this before, but I enjoy the college game more than the NFL.

    When we head to the US next year to watch some NFL I'm hoping to take in a few collage games and the atmostphere always looks quality. (No idea where mind! Possibly Maryland)

    I've been to see the Trojans at the Golden Bears. Great, and somehow totally different to an NFL game.

    There’s a few slightly different rules in the NCAA college games, and the additional width of the hash marks on the field (in college, they are further apart) promotes more of an inside running game, which is why you see the “Option” offence so much (a system no NFL team has ever deployed in the same way it is run in college).

    Only colleges used to use the two-point conversion, although the NFL has adopted that now.

    Also there are genuine rivalries in the college game, built up over decades, that - unlike the NFL - aren’t going to disappear overnight when a Billionaire owner takes the hump and moves the team because the local council won’t give him a new stadium for free.

    This looks to be dead in the water and not happening.

    Key point and big positive is it’s looking like the end of the line for Infantino, who’s constant meddling has been very annoying.

    Good, cause I'm sure he's looking to make the 2026 have 128 countries in it.
