The Americans are great danger to football. With football growing in
importance there, and with their stupid, rigid black and white view on the
world, they want sterilyse football and make it some sort of synthetic sport
with no passion, no human factor.

They'll have to accept it the way it is.

Do you have anything concrete to back up this rant?

I've seen "sporting events" in USA. Not my cup of tea. And for typical
football fan, which I am not, that would be tragedy.

Hi

There is definitely a danger here, but it will be a while. I live in
the states and most Americans will tell us football fans "Soccer
sucks, there are not enough goals".
The USA having an influence in everything with their might and soccer
growing here like weeds after every WC, in 50 years the USA will have
found a way to change the game and 11-8 scores will be common to their
delight. They will by that time have caught up with the rest of the
world and will snatch every other WC title.
Money talks the rest walks so they say unfortunately.

Nah, no danger in the long run. In 50 years time, USA will be a shadow of
the country it is now. Talking about the importance in global terms.
Next 5-10 years are critical.
