I've seen American Football on the rise in recent years (using college football rules, not nfl). They even broadcast live games from time to time. I wish it was bigger when I was young, I would have really liked to take a shot at it

3. Formula 1
6. Probably Tennis
Practicing (that's actually a real rank, based on people organized in clubs etc.
2. Gymnastics (includes all forms, even martial arts etc.)

American football is boring compared to soccer? And yet which is the sport where the score at the end of the game is 1-0 stereotypically
The typical, and statistically leading result is 1:1
What makes American Football "Boring" to others is the constant interruptions in the game, whereas Soccer is on the constant move for 2x45 min.
It takes time to get used to AF, since the fine details aren't obvious. I like it, yet I still think it's a watered down spin off from rugby. It is not boring, once you know what's going on. Doesn't mean there can't be a dead boring game. They happen. They also happen in Soccer. There is the same thing going on.
For someone who doesn't know whats going on, they cannot see the systems in the game. They may think the players on the field are there in random orders, or all of them just chasing after the ball. None of that is the case. They are where they are for a strategically reason. And it may surprise a non soccer expert, that the most important part in soccer is the game without the ball.
Generally one cannot compare the two games. Soccer players have the highest endurance of any team sport, in AF one doesn't need endurance. It needs other attributes.
