i think footballs not promoted so much in america because of a couple of things.
1. unlike american football, ice hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer only has one break at half time. so theres not much advertising revenue.
2. its a sport primarily for your feet only. americans dont kick balls in their sports. apart from a touchdown conversion. so its a big difference
3. scoring. some matches end 0-0. or 1-0. all american sports have much more 'scores' in their games.
so its a huge cultural difference. american sports dont do so well in europe. same difference
