A game that is enjoyed by over 90% of America that is not only physically demanding but also mentally challenging. It is played in many countries with different rules but still keeps the basics of the game. In the US their are 32 professional teams in the largest league known as the NFL, but their are also many smaller leagues that are being formed and that have folded over the years(AFL(Merged with the NFL), USFL, and the WFL are a few). Many of the NFL teams have bitter rivalries between 1 or 2 teams because of old games that were played over 50 years before any of the modern players were born. Some people say it is a pansy sport because the players wear helmets and pads, but they do not think about what would happen to a 210lb Quarterback if he was tackled by a 270lb Defensive end without pads(he would have a broken bone after landing on hard dirt) And others say rugby is better just because they don't wear pads but in my opinion they are both fun and challenging games that require similar skills.
Lineman: So johnny are you gonna try out for the football team this year?
Johnny: No thanks American Football is for faggots who wear pads.
Lineman: *Tackles and snaps Johnny's spine* Are pads faggoty now?
