The reason why American Football is called American Football is because it is mainly played in AMERICA. "Oh yeha, I'ma brit and american football is so ghey" Well guess what, YOUR COUNTRY DOSN'T EVEN PLAY IT, SO HOW THE FUCK CAN YOU JUDGE IT!? How many Americans do you see going to the cricket page and talking about how much they hate it? Hardly any, because we really don't watch or play cricket in america. How many americans go on the Rugby page and talk about how much they hate that? Again, hardly any although all those Ignorant europeans just seem to love to talk about how Football isn't as "hard" as Rugby. You know what? I've never seen a Rugby game, played it, or hardly know much about it, so I'm not going to spout of about how much I hate it like all the other ignorant europeans. You guys seriesly need to just 1.) Fuck off and start obsessing over you soccer, rugby, cricket shit rather than going on to Urban Dictionary so you can talk about how much you hate a sport your country does not even play or 2.) Actually watch/play/learn the damn game before you fucking judge!
Ignorant Person: American Football is full of fat people
American: Not True. Football players have been know to be able to lift over 300 lb. repeatidly, all that is muscle
Ignorant Person: Football contains no strategy
American: Not True, Football is the most strategic game on earth which is the reason dumbass Jocks never make it to the NFL
Ignorant Person: Soccer is the best sport because it's the most popular
American: Not true, Soccer is the most popular sport because any third-world country can play it becuase it only requires a ball and a net
Ignorant Person: Football is for pussys, Rugby Rules
American: Not True, although I have not seen a rugby game before, I know for a fact that football is more hard hitting because 1) In early football years with no pads, football deaths were extremely common and 2) Rugby deaths are not common
Ignorant Person: Football is a gay name for a game that you catch balls with you hands
American: Not True, early football (Which was a LOT like rugby) Players only ran with their feet. In an attempt to make the game more exciting they incorperated passing the ball. While I do admit that calling it football is stupid nowadays, what else would you call it, throwball? Runball? Crossbarball? Hitball? All those names suck.
Ignorant Person: Football is basterdized rugby
American: Not True, The games are VERY different from what I heard. Like in football you can pass the ball, in Rugby (I don't belive) you can't for...
Originally Rugby, American Football is by far one of the best games ever invented. It involved 11 players on a rectangular 100-yard field fighting over one ball. Now I know everyone else's definitions, and they are terribly politically incorrect.
1. Football is a "pussy" sport because we wear pads. We wear pads because we are so strong and powerful that without pads we'd kill each other. Back in the early 1900's dozens of people died each year playing football. Europeans never had this problem because they are not as strong as Americans.
2. It is not a "slow" game, nor does it spend 15 minutes between every play. If you've ever played football, you would know it is one of the fastest games ever played in 10 seconds. Within those ten seconds you exert all the energy you have, unilke pussy soccer where you run around for a couple hours like a chicken with their head cut off.
"The soccer game is on man."
"Why would I watch a bunch of Brits run around in short shorts? It's Monday night and a real man's game is coming on."
All you Rugby guys are crazy. Put an NFL running back on the rugby field and he will score every time he touches the ball. When you compare the 2 athletically, football players are bigger, stronger, can jump higher, can run faster, and can catch better. They wear pads cause they hit 10 times as hard..
The Rugby player was angry to learn a football player had been fucking his wife, but could do nothing about it because he would get his ass kicked..
A great sport that ignorant europeans and australians don't spend any time watching.
I really like football.
Ok I play football and you clearly have no idea the dificulty of the sport its probably because you guys are too big of pansys to actually play. rugby isnt has good becuase euorpeans play it and they are all weak pansys if my man TK who weighs 250 lbs squats 400 n benchs 350 hits you you aint gunna be moving and his wussy "pads" are going to become a weapon. Football requires extreme endurence becuase we were those "wussy" the trap in body eat making us hotter and more dehydrated but there are no brakes for water the NFL is the only thing with commercial brakes,assholes
TK plays american football and he sall a rugby player the rugby player is now in the hospital
A sport in which a group of players with assigned positions and jobs on the field try to score Touchdowns by either running or passing the ball down a 100yd. field.
Typically insulted by European peoples and compared to the sport of Rugby.
Often considered not as hard as Rugby, due to the addition of body padding, though the padding is completely necessary. Back in the late 1890's-1920's, there was an astounding number of football related injuries and deaths due to the lack of bodily protection offered to players. Players still receive injuries and are still considered by some to be playing a life threatening sport, but the addition of hard plastic helmets with facemasks and pads add durability and endurance to players.
usually demands that players be in peak physical and mental condition, due to having to run a 100yd field, dodge defenders and linemen, and catch passes made by the Quarterback. Mental strength is required for memorizing all of the terminology associated and with memorizing all of the plays utilized by the teams and coaches.
Often compared to Rugby, American Football is a physically and mentally demanding sport requiring speed, strength, agility, and endurance.
American Football is the name given to a mass homoerotic orgy masquerading as a sport. It is only exceeded in man-loving gayness by the similar psuedo-sport of Wrestling. The main objectives of American Football are to:
1) Provide an extended opportunity for exceptionally fit and muscular men to run toward each other and proceed to grope and hug one another.
2) Provide many opportunities for selected football players to watch their spandex-wearing cohorts bend over and symbolically pass a turd-shaped object through their legs.
3) Provide an excuse for the entire football team to get naked together and shower in private.
Most players of American Football like their sex-play rough, as is evidenced by the nature of their activities while dressed up in fetish-wear for the occasion. Padding is used, particularly around the shoulders to give the men an exaggerated look of masculinity that adds to the raw erotic power they display to both their teammates and the opposing team.
Surprisingly, most participants and fans of American Football do not embrace their obvious homosexuality as readily as they embrace other participants/fans. Most will even deny any hint of homoeroticism inherent in the activity, despite its gaiety being greater than that of most civic Gay Pride parades. This paradoxical aspect is thought to enhance one's enjoyment of the activity, and could perhaps be seen as a type of role-play where gay men pretend to be heterosexual while engaging in or watchin...
