When we moved to London I was shocked at how few games were available. I used my parents' US cable subscription to watch games online.
It's the same principle
alone (ie. not less games on NBC/NBCSN/USA, etc.), I'll gladly fork over fifty bucks for the balance. Hell, back in the day, I think I paid $20 a month for Sentanta Sports on DirecTV.
What we NEED, however, is ready access to soccer on free/cable television so that the audience continues to grow.
I enjoy living in a world where I am not a weirdo for liking soccer. I like to talk about more than Messi and Renaldo with people. It is amazing how far the broad popularity of the sport has come in just five or six years.
