It bothers me that the label "hand" is clearly pointing to an elbow.

Not sure why the guy who commented that football(soccer) takes more skill than American football was getting thumbed down

You just need to look at the role of the players, a huge proportion of American football players sole job is to run into other players, or to stop certain players from reaching a certain area

Yeah a quarterback and receiver have to have skill, maybe as much as soccer players, however in soccer just being fast and strong won't mean you could automatically become a good player, whereas a fast strong individual could learn a position in American football much faster.

Think about players like lionel Messi and Xavi, best players in the world, who are incredibly small standing at 5"7.

You can start American football later, having never played the game a coach can mould someone who is fast and strong, whereas with soccer/football the technical skill has to be there

It takes much more skill to play professional soccer than it does football.

I don't have much knowledge of soccer but football is very complex with knowing the plays, mechanics, when to use a play ect.... Im sure there are formations in soccer but it just goes back and forth where as football has a lot of thinking between each play

Consider the following.jpeg

Professional football players do not act like they're hurt, they often get hurt, i am a football player myself and I know that it doesn't take much to get you off your feet, when you are running at full speed and have to focus on the ball and at the opponent that is running behind you or in front of you, just a small touch, or a bit of unbalance are enough to get you off your feet, and sometimes if you feel contact you fall on the ground to show the reffere that there was contact.

There are players that dive though like Neymar, Suarez and Young, and thats a disgrace, but it occurs much less than Americans make it sound like

TLDR; Football players do not act like they're hurt.

"The thing where you put the ball in the thing for points and people pretend to get hurt is better than the thing where you put the other ball in the other thing for points and people sometimes really get hurt."

What is your obsession with the rivalry between these two countries? Seriously this hasn't been a thing for years.

This is ridiculous.

I think football of both types are a steaming pile of wank.

Imagine if American Football took on the name the Aussies have for it.
Instead of Football it's now "Gridiron"
That sounds badass as **** !

In Canada, we use soccer (which was originally a British term), but we refer to the sport played in the NFL as American Football. Although I think that's because we have our own very similar sport called Canadian Football with slightly different rules (i think you get 4 downs or something, plus a number of other things. I've heard avid football fans say the Canadian version is actually a lot more fun to watch/play). I've only been to a few CFL games myself.

Back in the olden days, there were two types of sports. The rich were too high of status to get sweaty and dirty on the field, so they played on horseback. The poorer, on the other hand, could not afford the thousands of dollars it cost to maintain a group of a dozen horses, so they had to play on foot, thus football, no matter the play style.

And the word soccer is of British descent.

I still think soccer should be changed to football.

Fun fact! Its called foot ball because the ball is a foot long from point to point!
User avatar #1 - totalynotxewi (04/23/2014) [+] (3 replies)
Doesn't matter, you still use your foot.

I don't like football but calling American Football football is just retarded and it's things like that makes the American stereotype
