a sport that is played in 50 nations spread in six continents according to the IFAF. The IFAF or International Federation of American Football governs the sport. This sport is soon to be the savior of the olympics in the near future, this is one sport that is growing rapidly worldwide, it might be within the 20 yr range. most likely the sport if gridiron football could debut in 2024 as a summer olympic sport. I say it desreves to be an olympic game because it is a minority sport and it has true competition. There's a lot of effort, physically, and mentally!!
its not footy. american football is played in other countries like the Czech Rep, UK, Japan, Uruguay(Uruguay Football League),Canada, Netherlands, Finland.etc!

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.

American Football is the act of trying to touch other men while running around in tights. For some reason it is called football (it is not played with the foot), but thats just because we're stupid americans. Football requires no stamina because individual plays last up to a grueling 15 seconds. Football players are people who just want to try to be bi-curious by taking showers with each other, and slapping each others asses. Most americans are obsessed with this sport, and on game days, resort to drunken blabbering and screaming random things. All around, the only good part of football is the super bowl half time show.

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.

A pussied-out, dumbed down version of the sport rugby. Where you can be the biggest fatass in the world and still play. The players on the field are basically 250 lb pawns of the coach. Do the players do any real thinking besides remembering/memorizing which plays are which? Nope. Many asshugging football players like to bash soccer as a sport which requires no skill. Sadly this is not true, but it does require not being a fatass so its a good thing they don't play anyway.

Fact: fags play football
Sorry, I forgot how much skill and manliness there is in tackling each other for 5 hours. But of course not straight. Play only goes on for about 10 seconds at a time, at most, before a break so the fatasses can catch their breath.

American Football: for faggots, fatasses, and ugly fucks who generally lack even the remotest bits of athleticism.

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.
