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...
A man's sport that requires you to take a hit from a 300+ pound guy who runs a 4.4 40 yard dash. Everyone is swole as fuck, quick as fuck, and tough as shit. It is often critisized by dick riding foreigners because of the pads, but these cunt muffins fail to realize that these pads are required, or the player might get seriously fucked up. Most people realize that these bitches could never come close to being on the same level as these athletes. It is also one of the most entertaining sports in the world, unlike soccer, where a bunch of faggot-ass cock riders run around a kick a ball for 3 hours.
Soccer Player-"Soccer is the most popular sport in the world!"
American Football Player- "Shut the fuck up bitch, and suck this dick."
Soccer Player-"Yes sir.......
*Glaugh Blaugh Hauge*
Soccer Player-"Can I stop now sir?"
American Football Player- *Beats the shit out of the little ho*
Grown men who think they are cool because they weigh 300 pounds, dressed in tights, jumping on top of each other, trying to get football through two posts.
Person 1: Man, lets watch some American Football!
person 2: No, those are just idiots dressed in tights. Lets watch some soccer instead.
Huge blokes running around in tights with a shitload of armor.
The pads are apprently used to protect 300 lb men from 300 lb men. Seems silly really. Whats the difference between that and a 200lb men hitting 200lb men. They seem to pull it off downunder in that AFL game and rugby.
Somehow named "Football" when the entire game consists of throwing and tackling with the occasional "Foot to ball" contact.
Game follows a distinct pattern. "4 seconds of gameplay, 30 seconds of ads, 20 seconds of commentators rambling crap... 4 seconds of gameplay" etc etc etc
Seems to collect large crowds of men who would rather watch big men in tights then spend some time having fun with their family.
"Wow did you see that awesome sequence of ads the other day, swear i caught a climpse of men in tights"
"I could help my son with his school project that means something, instead im going to go to "The Game" and drink my self silly with other men who prefer to be away from their loved ones"
"Wow, American Football is very cool, ask Miley Cyrus"
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.
A shit game that wastes 4 hours worth of time, and brain cells galore. Played by fat rednecks who have the brain capacity of an amoeba. Nobody outside a limited number of people from the US actually care about it, and the occasional Canadian. Not worth five cents, but vastly overvalued.
Hey, it's Football!
No, you moron! That's American Football. Real football is what people outside the US play.
A internationally irrelevant sport that is very boring to 99% of the planets population. THe only reason Americans care so much about it is because they invented it and its part of their culture. Kind of like how Japanese people carea about sumo wrestling and no one else does. Another similarity between American football and sumo wrestling is the overweight "athletes". In this sport, a 350lb tub of lard can be considered a "star".
American: The whole world watches the Superbowl!!
Englishman: What a "superbowl"? Some kind of fruit salad?
Brazilian: Huh? Sorry never heard of it..
Italian: Don't know what that is.
INSERT NATIONALITY HERE
: WTF is american football? Looks like a pussified version of rugby with padding.
a game where guys push and shove against each other like children until someone drops the ball. see also: a chance for guys to dress up in tights and look hot, rather than gay.
hey, did you watch that american football game last night?
