And you think this is because of how unaggressive soccer is? Or could it have a little more to do with world wide exposure, based on both climate availability and wealth availability (ie: you can't exactly walk to an outdoor rink in Brazil, and even if you could, 99% of them couldn't afford the equipment to play). Hockey has basically ever element of soccer (with the exception of being allowed to kick the puck in the net), but then you add the players move faster, have sticks to deke with the puck at a greater ability than soccer players can with their feet, shoot harder, plus hit and fight. If the world grew up with the experience and knowledge of hockey I don't see why it wouldn't trump soccer.
