Oops, I need reading comprehension 101.
I've been to games of every American sport - they just don't compare. I feel like soccer players themselves are more emotional too, but I don't have enough familiarity with the sport to say that definitively.  Although I think they fake emotion more too :)

Years ago I had a long layover in LON on my way to TLV. First time in LON, I rented a car (no Waze, Google Maps, or even ubiquitous cell phones back in those days) and drove (for the first time on the wrong side) to visit an old ex-neighbor who was retired and living in Wembley. It was a Sunday, and the streets were packed with fans wearing their team colors, painted faces etc. etc. I never saw anything like that before (or after). Made it back to my LHR-TLV flight by the skin of my teeth.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Agree 100%. I went to a national game in Poland and it was amazing. Fans are on their feet for two hours cheering.

The design of the game is more suited to this than pretty much any other sport.

Americans just want "to be entertained". Otherwise they really don't care.

I speak for myself
Are you what would be considered a sports fan?

Based on his answer above, I'd assume not...

When you get a "like" from me do you wonder what you did wrong?

I don't know. Give me a like and I'll see.

I think I would reassess my life.

I'm glad you hold yourself in such high regard that you think a like from you is worth pondering that deeply.
