Best Answer

Football. Based on the growing popularity of the sport domestic and worldwide... And the recent 27 billion dollar (according to Forbes). No other sport has a contract that comes close.

At every level, there can be glory and popularity for any player. High school players in some states are treated like royalty if they are on a winning team. Playing for a Division I NCAA team is dream for any player.

Baseball is the national pastime, but within the last decade it seems like the popularity of football has surpassed our once favorite pastime. While baseball and Basketball are still incredibly popular, there seems to be a gap that is increasing every day.
