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...

One of the stupidest sports to play for a school.Everyone thinks by playing football their tough, but their aren't, just stupid.Football takes all the money out of the schools athletic funding, and for what? to see a bunch of sweaty men grab each others nuts, grab a stupid ball, which isnt even shaped like a ball. It takes no brains to play football, actually, it destroys brain cells by the constant head trauma. Oh and no one comes to the games to see the game, they come to the games just like in nascar, to see if some one gets wrecked, or gets killed. Oh and you say all other sports are for pussie, well fuck you ass monkeys, yeah look up the term ass monkeys
American Football scenerio

Bill: Why do we have no tennis balls for the tennis team, soccerballs for the soccer team, or any baseballs for the baseball team.

Rob:Oh well you see, we needed heated cup holders for our charter bus, that way we are ready to go play a game that could possible kill us, and that wont even get us a scholarship

I like American Football. It combines my two other favourite sports - cricket and rugby.

One thing does make me laugh though - the vicious "helmet to helmet" hit.

The only other place I've seen "helmet to helmet" action is in porn films, usually when one woman sucks two guy's cocks at the same time, causing them to go "helmet to helmet" in her mouth.
On field banter from a typical american football game:
"Hey TO, I'm linin' you up Helmet to Helmet"
"Be careful, I've only got a small mouth.."

A sport played chiefly in the United States that requires more strength, speed, toughness, memorization, and training than any other sport... but is still boring as shit to watch. As big of a challenge to play as it is to sit through as a spectator.
Football Retard: American Football is the greatest sport ever because it's harder hitting than rugby! Europeans aren't as strong as Americans, so they play soccer!

Non-Boring Person: True, but soccer and rugby are also physically demanding and 10x better spectator sports that don't have constant anti-climactic stoppages in play, so nobody cares.

American football is called Football because the ball measures a foot. Incase you inbreds only thought it refers to the use of feet and balls.
Guy 1: American football should be called handegg instead of football, they don't even use their feet!

Guy 2:... It's called football because the ball measures a foot genius.....

Guy 1: point taken

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*
