I bet in Spains ome of these sports are even further down the list as basketball is in the UK. For example someone in Spain is saying "why can't Rugby be as huge in Spain as it is in the UK". Do you understand where im coming from? Basketball's biggest obstacle in the UK is other sports and also people's ignorance towards a fascinating sport.
I agree.But Rugby is not as worldwide a sport as basketball.six nations,southern hemisphere and Argentina.Cricket ?commonwealth countries.
Tennis?? what Tennis? you mean Wimbledon thats all! In Spain they also have Football,handball,Tennis,cycling etc.I think the biggest problem in the UK is not even all the other sports ahead of basketball(including Fencing probably)Its Football. Football alone kills everything else,even rugby league and rugby union.None of the rugby leagues in the UK is as big as basketball is in europe.My point is that its a worldwide sport and yet it is so low in the list of sports in the UK.Its not a complaint as much as it suprises me.In the Uk people are taller,it rains all the time,so ideal indoor sport,the americans play it(we seem to do everything the yanks do,like go to war etc),its tough and physical, it has all the ingredients.
