A game in the USA, where two teams try to move down a 100 yard field to the other team's goal by either passing the ball or running the ball given 4 downs to complete at least ten yards to continue the drive. It is a much more entertaining and better sport than the other football played in other countries, and the other football is only popular because they haven't been introduced to a real sport with physical contact and the lack of short-shorts. AL 90 AND MATTHEW ARE JUST A FEW ENGLISH RETARDS WHO CAN'T HANDLE A SPORT THAT INVOLVES TOUGHNESS, CONTACT, AND TACKLING. IT'S BASICALLY LIKE RUGBY BUT BETTER!
AL 90: Hey mate, why don't we drink some tea and watch men run around in short-shorts kicking a ball for three straight hours.

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!

The sport originated in England in which you use your feet to kick a ball into a goal. This sport has nothing in common with American Football (see handegg.) It is the most played and watched sport in the world, but that is denied by some Americans who insist that baseball is indeed the world's game.
Wow, what a goal by Arsenal FC. Great football.

Football, the great american sport.

Football is played with your hands, your foot, your entire body and your brain.

The 'Football' or ball is an oval ball designed for the most advanced aerodynamics to increase the perfection of throwing distance, speed, rotating (spiral) and precision.

High School Football
College Football (NCAA)
Pro Football (NFL)

It's the world's most beautiful, exciting, technical and strategical sport in the world with each team having an offense and defense team and each of them having a lot of specific formations and plays.

A "Play" is the actual move the teams do and there is large variety of "Plays" and "Formations" and each team has their own.They are listed in the Playbooks and describe and show the move and how it has to be done.

The basic and most important target of Football for the offense is to gain yards, touchdowns and the field goals to win the game.But also not to lose yards.
The defense on the other side, has to read the offense and keep 'em away of gaining yards and/or make it to the end zone.

Football and Soccer

In the states european football is called soccer and it's pretty hated.What europeans call American Football, is just called 'Football' in the states.
:It's football time!
:Yeah, we're gonna win this ball game!
:Like always, the field is ours.

American: You're gonna go to the ball game on friday with us?
European: What's a ball game?
American: Eh...Football????

American football is the greatest sport ever created, not to be confused with football(soccer)
John : Are you watching the football game on Sunday?

Eric: I'm watching football all day on Sunday! Even on Monday and Thursday!

The gayest sport in all the world, even gayer than men's synchronised fisting in pink leotards to "Small Town Boy" by Bronski Beat.

An excuse to watch men in shorts lock legs with other men in shorts while they try to shoot white balls into your gaping orifice while your team mate tries in vain to prevent said hole from being violated.

So gay that supporters of football "teams" hold regular pride parades resulting in "who's the gayest" skirmishes to see who can be the first in prison to get bum raped.
"Hey man do you like football?"

"No I prefer tits to balls."

the most exciting game on earth. the game can end up both teams having no scores or if lucky maybe it will reach the score of 3 or 2.

the better you act, the more times you can get some penalty kicks.

it is very exciting, you can watch it and take a nap and when you wake up both teams still don't have any scores
football fan #1: dang, i was not able to watch the game last night. people said it was very exciting

football fan #2: geez man you stupid. the game was intense, no one scored until the last minute. my boy del mundo did his thing, he acted like his balls were kicked, he looked like he was in deep pain and so they got a penalty kick and scored and they won. woo hoo! i love this shit

That sport where the legendary people in band play for the audience. If a football player gets hurt, he lays on the ground, while players are on their knees and the crowd is silent. If a marching band player gets hurt, they get right back up and walk it off. Football is for highschool. Marching band is 4LYFE!
While the boring football players walk off the field - not even in step! - , the amazing marching band comes to entertain the sleeping crowd with their halftime show.
