Football means different things in different places. In the United States of America, it refers to American Football
, which involves 11 padded players (the offense) attempting to bring an oblong ball into the oppenents endzone, whereas the other 11 players (the defense) try to stop this from happening while trying to cause a turnover (interception, recovered fumble) or make the offense go 3 and out; as 4 downs are given to the offense to advance 10 yards. If they do so, they are given 4 fresh downs. To see more, search American Football or click on the link provided.
Football elsewhere refers to what I and other Americans know as soccer; which involves 11 players on each team attempting to kick a checkered sphere into the opponents goal. Hands can only be used by the goalie, who can not leave the rectangle in front of their goal; other players must move the ball by kicking it or heading it. See other definitions on this page or search soccer
for further explanation.
I love to play American Football, whether it is casually with friends or competitively with my school team. I however do not like competitive soccer, though I do like playing casually with friends. It is a matter of prefence, and will everyone stop bickering about which one is better? It is opinion, nothing else.
Fan: Football kicks soccer's f&*%ing ass! Soccer eats hairy balls.
Fan: Football kicks American football's f#$%ing ass! American football eats hairy balls.

The greatest sport ever made. And not to be confused with soccer. football as in the nfl. the most exciting sport ever to be made. That envolves 11 men on offense and 11 men on defense. all playes wear equiment like helments and shoulder pads to protect them from enjury due to the rough conctact in the sport. they are played ib 4 down intervals. the only way to keep going is to gain 10 yards befor your 4 downs are up. the deffense tries to stop this from happening. the ball can ether be handed off to a running back or thrown the a reciever by a quater back. the quater back is protected by lineman. the lineman protect from deffesive lineman and linebackers. the recievers are covered by cornerbacks, safties, and linebacker who also can ruse the quater. line backers also watch for the running back.

A game where guys don spandex pants, helmets, and colorful jerseys. Men watch the sport for excitement, joy, or to appear masculine. Women watch the sport to ogle at the ass of hot, muscular, sweaty men.

"American football is definately NOT gay."
The greatest sport in the world, played almost exclusively in America. WAY better and more difficult to play than soccer.
Yeah, in football you wear pads, but if you didn't, you would get seriously injured and possibly killed, especially at the NFL level. Yeah, you get breaks in between plays, but it's like running sprints. One or two sprints won't get you tired, but after an hour of it, you're exhausted. Same with football.
To have a good football team, you need a diverse range of players with different skills. You need a good leader who can throw the football well, a strong, fast player who can absorb hits every play without fumbling the ball, a few fast athletic players who can catch the ball and not drop it after getting leveled by a safety or linebacker, and five big guys to fight in the trenches and block every play and are the most important part of your offense.
And that's just the offense. So for all of you faggots who think that soccer is harder or takes more skill than football and all you need to do to be a football player is throw a football, man up and try playing a real sport, AMERICA's sport, American Football. You wouldn't last 5 seconds against a good team.
Yound Lad: Mister, what's the greatest sport in the world?
Wise Man: Football, AMERICAN Football.
A group of kids in high school that not only are jocks and play football but have their minds set in stone that they are the coolest, toughest, most popular kids around and do everything the best and are certain they will succeed in life because they play sports. They talk down to other people who dont play sports or who arent athletic. They wear their football jerseys to school even when they dont have a game. None of them drink, smoke, or do drugs because they are trying to be "The best that they can be". Half of them arent even allowed to go to parties. You dont have to play football to be "Football"
