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 forword pass
Ignorant Person: Soccer pwns Americna Football
American: Soccer is far to flawed a system for it to be legitimitly compared to any other sport. The fact that this game contains no overtime, flawed whole points system, goal differentials and the sheer tedium of the sport makes it hands down the worst sport I ever saw. But that's just me.
Ignorant Person: Players are to stupid to know how to attack AND Defend
American: If I were to put offensive players in defence football would be a worthless sport to watch. It would consist of NO defence since players of defence are 10x as strong than players on offence (Excluding O-Linemen) It'd basicly be a game of pitch and catch, it'd be stupid and boring
So there you go, anseres to all your ignorant questions you europeans...
Cool Guy: No, I'm not gay and i can run for more than 5 seconds.
corey: hell no dude rugbys for smelly europeans who like huggin each other the game, lets play some good ole american football.
Theodore Roosevelt (president of U.S. 1901-1909) wanted to BAN american football because it was considered too dangerous and too many deaths resulted from it.
If you watch this game, you will find there is a lot of adrenaline and excitement packed into every play.
Guy 2: "Oh, sorry mate, I'm not gay"
No footballs gay. were watching futbal or rugby
The sport has become an obsession in America, and is a giant part of American culture. The rest of the world is obsessed with the lovely little gentlemans sport of futbol, America is obsessed with the hard-hitting high impact sport of football. Were different, not ignorant. If you don't like it, fake an injury and hope America gets a red card
