Sorry, Gkirk, but REAL football is king. Your excuse of soccer makes me laugh in boredom. And it's not "football", it's soccer.

I apologize for on behalf of his ignorance, but at the same time ditto to that.

The US is the only place that I know that calls soccer, soccer. Everywhere else it is football. And the NFL overseas is called american football.

You have every right to say that you don't like european soccer, but don't state the very incorrect assumption that because its called soccer in the US, it is called soccer everywhere else, because you are VERY wrong.

Don't you mean EVERYWHERE BUT the USA FOOTBALL?

Most countries in the world have it as their national sport, who else but the USA plays American Football? Nobody.

A bunch of pansies, trotting up and down an oversized field, with a goal every 10 years or so. Yeah, real exciting.

A game that is a organized venue for rioters, thugs, and hoodlums.

I went to a riot one time, by the way, and a soccer game broke out.

Only exciting thing is the Latin announcers yellling "gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll !!!!!!"

Of course, they can say this for two minutes, because they've had several years in between goals to practice the breathing techniques needed to say this for two minutes.

Players get bumped on the shin, and they fall down in a spate of Oscar-winning agony that would do Charlton Heston proud in it's overkill.

Yes, what an exciting sport.....

I'll go out on a limb and piss both sides off. "American" football and football/"soccer" are both great games! Baseball is by far the most boring and useless waste of time out there(unless maybe you count curling).

Oh yeah, cricket too but the Aussie comedian who talks a lot about cricket is funny as hell.

Yes, what an exciting sport.....

What an exciting game American Football is. First of all...

1. The US army could learn a thing or two about equipment from all the gear those boys wear. If it weren't for their numbers on the jersey, it could be ANYONE under all those protective helmets and pads  Smile

2. The game STOPS, literally, and the entire team is replaced by another set of mysterious jerseyed men. They call it tactics, i call it "hey we're not winning send out the meaner guys!" endless substitution...what a game....

3. Too much bending over. Yes that's right...when they say all that 24, 46, hike stuff, the world can see their rear ends getting their annual tan, now that takes skill to point dead meat up like that  Wink

4. Over sized field ? hahah, have you seen the size of the GOAL in american football? It's like the gap between teeth from someone on Extreme Makeover... how could you miss that thing?! I swear you could kick a field goal drunk...

5. The clock stops for the first down, i mean, how exciting is that? there is no rush, no adrenaline, no sense or urgency to see creative plays, which is why the coach has a huge playbook like the Mir Checklist...who am i kidding Mir's checklist was comprised of dont hit other objects and you'll be goodski.

6. The referee has a mic and he announces to the whole stadium what the issue was when he blew the whistle, we don't do that in SOCCER because the crowds know how to cheer, so no one would hear the ref  Wink

7. No one else in the world wants to take on the sport, because there is real american football, and we call that Rugby.


All jokes aside, i love american football too, i just wanted to get witty on my first post, both sports can be equally boring, just depends on the games ya watch...UF against FSU are my fac yankee games, and the champion's league is my fav football games to watch  Wink

Despite being a fanatical Rangers fan you could just watch that Bergkamp goal over and over and still not work out how he did it.

Its about time FIFA/UEFA and the English FA made the premiership really exciting and let Rangers and Celtic join the league.

As already said millions of times the US are the only who call football soccer. In the rest of the world it is football. I am always wondering why the US football is called football? They have the so called ball, which is actually an egg, most of times in their hands. Only very seldom they kick with the foot. It should be called handball.

And out of the thousdands of soccer games played, those are the best highlights? Uh, OK. You can have an all-day highlight reel every week with great plays in U.S. college or pro football.

Soccer sucks. Sorry if those of you who like that don't like OUR view of it. If you enjoy it, that's fine. But most Americans don't. Deal with it.

Quoting ZRH (Reply 19):

Because your game has always been called "soccer" in the U.S. So we called our "football" to differentiate it. That easy enough for you?

Quoting ZRH (Reply 19):

DUH! Already a sport by that name.

Maybe we should just call soccer "Santctioned Rioting" to keep it simple.

The Oxford English Dictionary (the definitive dictionary of the English language defines football as: "An open-air game played with this ball by two sides, each of which endeavours to kick or convey the ball to the goal at the opposite end of the field. Soccer is thus one type of football, along with rugby and football.
