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.

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.

Tupperware plated rugby
Nathan: Did you watch the American football last night?

Lawrence: Is that the sport where men of questionable sexuality covered in plastic jump on top of each other.

Nathan: Yeah, apparently they throw a 'ball' around as some sort of cover for the whole thing.

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 reason for big guys to hug each other while wearing protection.
Is this an american football game, or a softcore porno?

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 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?
