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 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

Commonly known as "Footy". A game in which men who get paid 1million times greater than their IQ pretend to be hurt for 90mins. Football matches are then followed by excessive comsumption of cheap beer and violent riots featuring obese middle-aged men with no hair.
Wanna watch the Football?

America: A sport that is obsessed over by almost everyone, even though the game is boring to watch due to constant pauses in the game. Is highly physical resulting in many health problems later in life. Is talked 99.9% of the time on Sports Center, even when it is the offseason.

The rest of the World: A sport that is obsessed over by almost everyone. Reffered to as "soccer" in America, is actually pretty exciting to watch, but can get frustrating as injuries are faked almost every 25 seconds
America: Person 1 "Hey did you see that segment on sportscenter about
football"

Person 2 "Which one?"

The rest of the World: Person 1 "OMG that was an amazing goal!.....OMG that
guy is being taking off on a stretcher, did you see what happened?"

Person 2 " He got bumped into"

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.

A sport played by 22 men or women on a large grass field running around kicking a round ball. Also called "soccer" by Americans (to differentiate from American football), Canadians (to differentiate from Canadian football), Australians (to differentiate from Australian Rules football), and some Irish (to differentiate from Gaelic football). Therefore, despite what most every arrogant, narrow-minded Eurosnob or Britsnob thinks, The US is not the only nation which calls football "soccer," and no country calls it "soccer" due to ignorance, simply a different evolution of terms.

Every nation on Earth plays football, some better than others. The most popular club football leagues are found in Europe, where you can enjoy hundreds of pussy Europeans flopping and flailing and crying on the ground, only to get up ten seconds later, completely unharmed and unfazed, after they've made sure they have gotten the call from the ref.

Despite all the bickering about terminology, pussy players, and European retardation, football is a simple, fun game that can be enjoyed by everyone.
European football (especially Italian) in a nutshell:
-Player 1 takes the ball downfield after taking possession from Opponent 1
-Opponent 2 slightly brushes the leg of Player 1
-Player 1 yells, clutches face, falls to ground, writhes in agony, still clutching face, apparently unaware that their leg was touched and not their face
-Referee blows whistle, cards Opponent 2, awards free kick to Player 1
-Player 1 immediately gets up and acts like nothing has happened
