"Let us take the Rugby World Cup's claim of a cumulative global TV audience of 4.2bn as an example.
That is 87.5m per game, which is going some for a sport with only 3,000 registered players in China, 24,000 in India, 670 in Indonesia, 16,000 in Brazil, 7,000 in Pakistan, 800 in Nigeria and an unknown figure for Bangladesh - so that is 51,470 players in countries that make up half of the world's population."
Lol. Finally they're starting to debunk this huge lie that has been classed as fact.
Anyway that article fails to mention the Basketball WC and Ice Hockey WC which were both on this year and were more popular globally than events listed on there. These lists are always Anglo-centric, rather than a true global perspective.
