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?

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.

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

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

Pretty much the dumbest idea ever. For one thing, it's not even football! Football is what you idiotic american football players call "soccer"." Soccer" is REAL football! In your retarded football, you don't even use your feet! Unlike in REAL football! For another thing, take an awesome game that isn't for pussies, rugby: no pads, no stopping in between every play, no 5 hour games, and no stupid goal as big as the field itself! Take that awesome sport over seas to america, have some stupid lard-a's that do nothing but sit on their asses all day and watch TV, screw around with it, take REAL football's name cause they can't think of anything else cause they're failures at life, and you get american football: a "sport" for fatties that can't run for more then 15 seconds max.
american football player:You're a pussy.

ME:I play soccer and alley rugby, and your calling me the pussy! You're the pussy for playing american football. At least I can run for 90 min.'s straight without stopping every 2-15 seconds. And, all I wear pad-wise are tiny little shin guards, not a full body suit of new-age armor.

american football player:Football's a man's sport!

ME:My point exactly! You're all homosexuals! Just look at the way you touch each other!

american football player:We're not touching each other, we're hitting each other!

ME:Can you even feel that through those hundred-pound pads you're wearing. Plus, what is the point of the butt-protecters, just to make it harder for you're gay colleagues to get to it? I sure hope you guys are wearing condoms in those so called "dog piles". It would be horrible if a whole team died of AIDS, on second thought, do what ever you want.

american football player:well...ummm...well .......

ME:Oh, I'm sorry is your mouth guard in?

american football player:you....uhhhhh....y ou.......

ME:Yeah, that's what I thought.

ME:PEACE! Baby Gap.

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 Player: Yo football is the best son!!!
Soccer/European Football Player: Shut up soccer owns your sport!
