Do you think poker can be as popular as football for example?

It seems to me that poker will not be able to take over the world in this way and gain such an audience, for example, as the same football

I agree. Football is an institution in a lot of countries. Laws, stigma and an aversion to gambling means that poker will never become truly mainstream, but I do believe that we will see it become more popular again over time.

Sure. A lot of poker on tv. A lot of poker on line. A lot of home games. A lot of families play poker on holidays. You don't have to be an "athlete" to play. Anybody breathing can play. Disabled people can play. It may be as popular.

Well, I think it's if it's already overtaken :), it also depends on certain advertising factors ...

I like the accessibility of poker... I don't think it can be as popular as football but I think it has the potential to be much bigger

No, it's probably impossible because football is physical labor and poker is mental

I definitely never play football, poker is gaining momentum and pays a lot of attention.

No but.... For many years now the programming of TV have included much more poker related content. What they don't show is just how slow/boring a tournament can be. Lots of folds. They only show the highlight reel which is has the action to keep people tuned in.

Obviously it does not. For example (to this day) kids probably would rather want to become professional football player rather than pro poker player - although in both categories only handful with these dreams actually manage it ...

Hi.
In my opinion, it is incorrect to compare poker and football. Although I believe that poker is a sport, it is a completely different discipline than football. :)
Good luck.

I love poker but I don't think it will become so popular since you see football since you were a child and poker is not something that you are taught as a child

Poker is already more popular than football, but due to the fact that poker is considered a game of chance for most of the uninitiated, only those who understand the game know about it.

I don't see that as a detriment. The masses are asses, after all.

I think not, after all, poker is partly a game of chance, and will always be subject to some kind of ban from governments

As football definitely will not. I think it can become as popular as, for example, billiards or chess. Although I think poker is more popular than them.
The fact is that football is a spectator sport. It is watched even by those who do not play football, and even by those who do not play sports.
Chess, billiards or poker is not a spectator sport. It is observed mainly by those involved in these disciplines.

I don't believe this can become real one day, as football is much more democratic and rooted in our society. Most kids get a ball as a gift, imagine in a world we would give them cards?

At this time, poker is no less popular than football!! It's just games of different categories!
