    ^^Brazil is the only team there that i think has a chance to win it. Otherwise the title is going to Europe

    Actually, one of my soccer buddies said that a better comparison would be putting a CFL team in the same division has the Seahawks, Broncos, Patriots

    Group but it wouldn't be a bad prop bet if you put a little on them to win it all. I'd go with more than one pick if I was doing that though.

    USA is ranked higher than Ghana, so I'm not sure which one is supposed to be the CFL team.

    The only reason USA is ranked higher than Ghana is because USA has been playing against shitty teams, just look against who they always play in qualifications.

    This...plus look at who is on the Ghana team and what team they play for. Asamoah, Muntari and Boateng are monsters that play for solid European clubs. Among others

    i'm not saying ghana's not good, i'm saying that nfl comparison was ridiculous. ghana's not one of the top three teams in the world and the us isn't great but they're not that bad.

    It's the only way i could compare it for DannyC. Am. Football isn't global like soccer is which is why i changed it to CFL in the NFL. The US's team isn't in the same league as a lot of these European teams

    i guess we'll see, but i really don't see the us getting embarrassed by germany or portugal. i don't think they'll win or anything, but i don't see them getting crushed like the montreal alouettes would against the seahawks or broncos.
