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 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...

football is my least favorite sport but i still under stand it. lots of people ask me question like "who's the browns QB" or "whats a wide receiver do?" unfortunately i don't know these answers but i will prove my understanding in a simple equation
"American Football"

120 yards=touch down

(a)touch downs>(b) touch downs to win

because 120 yards=touch down a(120yards)>b(120yards)

now that we have our equations i will wasy touch downs=7 because they are 7 points so 120 yards=7 so yard=7/120
now we can see that a(120*7/120)>b(120*7/120)

or a(7)>b(7)
that now simplifys to a>b in other words you just need more points to win
to remove all the words from that
120y=t
at>bt
so
a(120y)>b(120y)
and because
t=7 points
y=7/120
a(120*7/120)>b(120*7/120)
a(7)>b(7)
so
a>b

Not only a game of strength, speed. but a mental game to. to everyone who thinks American football is a joke, your mistaken. It takes a long time to be not only physically ready, but mentally ready too. This game requires quick wits and above average intelligence in order to break down and read every play within a 2-3 second window. Also, offensivly, if your a runningback, u need to know snap calls.

(example: buda= on 1, Camille=on 2 ect.) also u need to know blocking calls. prior to the snap, lineman will shout out a bundle of different calls, for shift formations and such. you need to know who is doing what or the play will string out and be unsuccessful. In order to move the ball successfully on offense, all 11 men on the offense must execute there job perfectly, or it will be a broken play, and it all rely on the athletic ability of the ball handler. besides that, you have to be able to take a sever beating. i mean I'm talkin ear-ringing eye's flashing hits, ever down, which could be like 200-450 downs both ways. so instead of everyone saying footballs for pussy's or what ever u jokes say, throw on the pads. and you can at least try, you'll be in for a rude awakening
American football
offensive plays:
-pit left, flank right, 25 option load, lion, flex call split nasty right 48 pitch. on line call. (buda, Camille ect.)

defensive mentality when breaking down the offense after the snap
- is it a pitch? a dive? an iso? a bootleg? a power? an option? a screen? a power pass? a counter? is the QB dropping back? should i read the receivers? whats the line doing, are the shifting? what are the running backs doing?

Gay American sport. Bunch of dumbass steroid using fags trying to hump each other while trying to run to the other side of the field. Stops every 10 seconds and lots of subs because the players are too fat to run much.
Look at that steroid jacked dumbass with the pig-skin under that pile of men. He might graduate high school with an D average if he's lucky. It must be an American football.

a sport that is played in 50 nations spread in six continents according to the IFAF. The IFAF or International Federation of American Football governs the sport. This sport is soon to be the savior of the olympics in the near future, this is one sport that is growing rapidly worldwide, it might be within the 20 yr range. most likely the sport if gridiron football could debut in 2024 as a summer olympic sport. I say it desreves to be an olympic game because it is a minority sport and it has true competition. There's a lot of effort, physically, and mentally!!
its not footy. american football is played in other countries like the Czech Rep, UK, Japan, Uruguay(Uruguay Football League),Canada, Netherlands, Finland.etc!

An idiotic, homoerotic sport which looks like a bunch of apes trying to have sex with each other. It was named 'football' by a misinformed redneck who wasn't privy to the fact that the most popular sport in the world already carries that name. It is a result of international espionage because it appears vertually identical to rugby, so there's nothing original there. To enjoy American Football you need an IQ of a beach towel and a steady diet of beer and fried chicken.
Dad, is that a gay gang bang?
No son, this is American Football

An extremely gay sport that gives high school fags a reason to feel "cool" while also comforting them from the fact that they have extremely small dicks. The objective... to be as gay as possible while throwing a leather ball and wearing pads like a pussy. The truth... American football is a slow-paced, piece of shit sport that involves a minimum of 11 vaginas on the field at once.
Football Fag: "Hey, do you think I have a chance at fucking that hot chick from our Calc class?"

Soccer player: "Yeah sure, if your dick was existent and you weren't such a faggot."

Football Fag: "Hey thanks man. I'm a tool because I play American Football."

Soccer player: "Fuck off."

It's a lot like Rugby, they just use way too much gear as if they were going to war, which in this case they get their body broken sometimes.

And also, this "American Football" only Americans really like it, because the rest of the world doesn't.

This has nothing to do with football in reality, it's really rugby under the name football.

Football you kick the ball with your feet, hence the name. "Soccer" is a dumb ignorant word that Americans use it to describe the Real Football.
Player 1: Do you want to play American Football?
Player 2: Nah, that's lame.
