biggest most popular sport on the planet, yet still people call it by some stupid made up name that has no relevance to the sport... it's called football, mostly because you use your foot, and there's a ball

Soccer is the most popular, hands down.

If the islands of Wallace and Fortuna can get an international team... well thats enough said if you ask me.

Criteria

I think there are multiple factors to rank sports based on popularity. Two main criteria can be: "number of people who watch/play" and "number of countries in which the sport is played". I think a 'democratic' way of ranking should be number of people who watch/play. In that sense, cricket has caught up a lot (and should continue to do so after introduction of 20-20). By the way, an interesting thing to note is - Rugby (American Footbal) and Cricket are the only two sports in the top 10 which are not part of Olympic Games. Hmmm.....
