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.

Reasonable Person: Oh shut up, both of you idiots. They're both good sports.

One of the least skill needed sports to ever be created. It involves no endurance, mentality, or physical strength. Sure you have to tackle 300 pound guys and throw a ball 100s of yards but cmon , if you actually try then anyone could do it. Just get on steriods like all the pros do. Maybe football would be better if they players weren't afraid of getting hurt and didn't have to wear so much padding. compared to soccer, football is like playing nerf with a 6 year old.
A football player tackles a guy to the ground with full body padding. A soccer player gets slammed to the ground with nothing but shin guards.

now tell me which is harder.

A man's sport that requires you to take a hit from a 300+ pound guy who runs a 4.4 40 yard dash. Everyone is swole as fuck, quick as fuck, and tough as shit. It is often critisized by silly-ass foreigners because of the pads, but these cunt muffins fail to realize that these pads are required, or the player might get seriously fucked up. Most people realize that these shit talkers could never come close to being on the same level as these athletes. It is also one of the most entertaining sports in the world, unlike soccer, where a bunch of fags run around a kick a ball for 3 hours.
Soccer Player-"Soccer is the most popular sport in the world!"

Football Player-"Shut the fuck up bitch, and suck this dick."

Soccer Player-"Yes sir.......
*Glaugh Blaugh Hauge*
Soccer Player-"Can I stop now sir?"

Football Player- *Beats the shit out of the little ho*

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"

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!
