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.

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 game that is enjoyed by over 90% of America that is not only physically demanding but also mentally challenging. It is played in many countries with different rules but still keeps the basics of the game. In the US their are 32 professional teams in the largest league known as the NFL, but their are also many smaller leagues that are being formed and that have folded over the years(AFL(Merged with the NFL), USFL, and the WFL are a few). Many of the NFL teams have bitter rivalries between 1 or 2 teams because of old games that were played over 50 years before any of the modern players were born. Some people say it is a pansy sport because the players wear helmets and pads, but they do not think about what would happen to a 210lb Quarterback if he was tackled by a 270lb Defensive end without pads(he would have a broken bone after landing on hard dirt) And others say rugby is better just because they don't wear pads but in my opinion they are both fun and challenging games that require similar skills.
Lineman: So johnny are you gonna try out for the football team this year?

Johnny: No thanks American Football is for faggots who wear pads.

Lineman: *Tackles and snaps Johnny's spine* Are pads faggoty now?

Johnny: Mommy

One of the most physically and mentally demanding sports in the world. To all the europeans that think its a sport for fat people to run in to each other you're wrong. Fat people that play football usually suck. It takes way more skill than soccer (I've played both). Try going up against a 240 lb linebacker thats yelling stuff to you about your mom than runs at you with a full out sprint and hits you so hard all you see is black for a few seconds than says something about how he lit your ass up while you're laying on the ground. You need way more leg strength than any other sport. The low man wins and by doing this you have to get REALLY low than on top of that you have to push guys that weigh around 200 lbs that are pushing back at you. Also if you say pads are for wimps they really don't do that much. All they do is make opponents hit you harder. On top of your own weight you have to carry you now have to carry another 30 lbs on your back while sprinting down the field.
European that thinks football is gay: American Football is gay.

American Football player: No you're just a pussy.

European that thinks football is gay: Yeah you're right.
