Much smaller population and audience which translates into significantly smaller broadcasting deals .. limited reach (in terms of global audience and awareness) and a somewhat insignificant approach over the years to grow the game at a grassroots level.

Football is religion in the US (I know you know this well);  Hockey is Canada's.

And yet, is hockey failing in Winnipeg? Again?????

The level of love for football in the States compared to the love for hockey in Canada is not even close.  

As times goes by and less people can afford Hockey and with Canada becoming more multi-cultural (i.e. immigrants with zero interest in hockey) ,  hockey is kind of slowly fading away from being a religion and into just another sport.    

 

In the States the people are still insane for football... when High School football teams in small tiny towns can outdraw the Argos by a large margin it's pretty indicative that the love for football up here isn't all that much.

The amount of high school football stadiums in Texas is unbelievable and we aren't taking like 1or 2k buildings, They have numerous 7, 10k stadiums and even have one that holds 19k.

Just remember for every dollar they spend on building high school football stadiums that's just means less money for the classroom.

Wheb you drive through tiny towns in very rural South Dakota - they'll have a school with a football stadium.

No kidding. And coaching is not done by volunteer teachers down there.
