    Not necessarily true. Coach Z might have a point. Under the new rules 24 of the 32 World Cup teams either qualify directly (top 7 finishers) or to...

    I agree. Also seems like Jon Konkak post was deleted and I didn't see anything offensive in it whatsoever. Not cool.

    Actually Americans make up 3.5% of tourists in the town of Greece (540K persons)

    They contribute just 0.5% of Greece city GDP. Slightly more than Cypriots do (800K population island). Significantly less than Bulgarians do.

    In fact last year 13% less American even bothered to go to Greece.

    USA is #5 of Greek tourists outbound payments...

    Greece on the other hands doesn't even make it high enough to be included in American statistics...

    Other than that you're right...
