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 American football's f#$%ing ass! American football eats hairy balls.
Reasonable Person: Oh shut up, both of you idiots. They're both good sports.
Matthew: Good idea chap, but I've found out a better sport also called football that's in America! It involves more than just kicking a ball! You actually do OTHER things too, and people get to knock the crap out of other people when you tackle them!
AL 90: but hitting hurts and I like watching men in short- shorts.
Matthew: Men in short shorts it is!
2) Misnaming Gridiron. A lesser discipline commonly misnamed as Football, instead being more related to rugby. A contact sport played most commonly in U.S.A. and Canada where around 11 men were big armors and tight pants and grapple each other in short intervals of 5 seconds. Usually to catch a breather and to show commercials.
- U.S.A. is the gayest country on Earth, that's why they enjoy their contact sports so much, for instance American Football.
