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.

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 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.

Shite American "sport" for fat people to play and watch.

Physical fitness is not required as play stops every minute for a 5 minute break when the coaches play a basterdised version of physical chess. Not to mention the fact that the entire team gets changed round several times a game. Why? Because one player is to stupid to be able to know how to both attack AND defend!

Players wear pads and helmets because they are too feckin dumb to learn how to tackle properly (like in Rugby). Padding is like giveing a swimmer a boat.

I couldn't give a shit who or how big Ray Lewis is. If he took all that gay padding off and came across Jona Lomu or any of the New Zealand rugby squad he would know what a tackle is. The bigger they are the harder they fall. And if everyone keeps quoting his name because he's huge at 250lbs that's about the MINIMUM weight for an international rugby forward.

How many "football" players actually look like they've been in a game? They're all pretty boys who don't know what a good studing or stamping on feels like. They should be put at the bottom of rook to see what it feels like without padding.

To summarise - shit, slow, lazy game (sport is too generous a word) played by fat, unfit people and supported by self obssessed, ignorant, xenophobic yanks who believe that because it is their sport it is the best in the world and their players are the biggest and strongest.
