1. American football (I don't know why it's called football) is a sport played in many parts of the world, not just the US- though it originated there, and consists of two teams of eleven players with the objective of scoring points by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone by either throwing the ball to your teammates or running with it. THIS SPORT REQUIRES SKILL AND PLAYERS WEAR PADS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES BECAUSE IT IS A DANGEROUS SPORT.

2. Association football, also called soccer (formed by the third, fourth and fifth letters of the word association- so as to distinguish it from other forms of football), is a sport played in every country of the world and consists of eleven players on each team with the objective of putting the ball in the opposing teams goal using only your feet. THIS SPORT REQUIRES SKILL AND IS, IN MY OPINION, THE BEST SPORT EVER.

3.Rugby football- another sport called football. Honestly I don't know how to play this game, but I know it requires just as much skill as the above sports.

People need to shut up about which football is better and how Americans need to stop calling American football football cause it's not gonna happen. And Association football can be called football OR soccer and be correct both ways. And people who play American football are not wimps for wearing pads, they're protecting themselves from, oh I don't know, breaking their bones? Seriously just go out and play the damn sport you wanna play.
1. person 1: Hey you wanna go play some football?
Person 2: Yea I'm gonna score so many touchdowns today.

2. Person1: Hey you wanna go play some football (aka soccer)?
person 2: Yea, I've gotten so much better at shooting.

3. Person 1: Hey you wanna go play some football (aka rugby)?
person 2: Yea, let's go.. huddle... and stuff (Idk)

The greatest and most popular sport in history with more than 5 times the TV audience of the next most popular (cricket - every radio and TV in the sub-continent is permanently tuned to Pakistan/India cricket matches - that's a big audience).

Only Americans call it 'soccer' owing to their vast ignorance of what goes on outside their national boundaries and the misnomer which has them thinking than a corruption of rugby, with all the danger and most of the skill removed can also be called 'football'.

'The Beautiful Game' can be played anywhere, on almost any surface, by any number of players, for almost any length of time. And is. There is no country on earth that doesn't play. It has inspired more passion, more courage and more excitement than any other sport in history and dwarfs everything else.
Football is, without question, the defining sporting activity of the human race.

When a girl is playing footsie with you, and her foot travels up to your crotch.
She was playing football with me all through dinner.

A name given to two different sports in which America and the rest of the world use to waste their lives away constantly arguing over which is better. Honestly, I'm an American. And I love the game of American football. But notice how I haven't said that I hate football (aka soccer). In fact, I love that sport, too. I just totally suck at it. Haha. C'mon, be real ya'll. Both games are cool. Even rugby too. It's cool. I have no idea how to play it, but I enjoy trying. It's all preference. For all ya'll that say football is whack cause we wear padding, go ahead and say whatever the fuck you want to say. That padding protects us so we can stay a little safer to enjoy the game a little longer. I don't care if I don't use it, I've tackled mofos twice my size without any padding on. The point I'm trying to make; All three games are great. They all require stratedgy, strength, speed, and endurance. So just shut the fuck up, grab the ball that suits you, and play your damn game already. You got that? Kay, just helping out. I'm just a 15yr old from a small town. Yeah, yeah... What do I know? Honestly? I know it's fucking pointless for ya'll to fight over sports. So just save your shit for someone who's still too much of a punk to simply enjoy a game of American football, football, or rugby. Peace people! Damn. Haha.
(just writing to fill in this shit :P)
(damn, now i gotta write "football" too. there, ya happy you fuckers?)

Football - Only the best damn sport ever. Played with a round ball and feet. However, Americans tend to mistake it for American Football (which should truthfully be called tackleball for all that matters).
Football - The only game you'll ever need to know

Also Known As the BEAUTIFUL GAME. A real sport played with your FEET and an actual round BALL, hence the name FOOTBALL. This term should never be used to refer to our silly american game of putting on 30 pounds of armor and carrying a cone shaped piece of rubber while trying not to be touched by other guys. You'll note the lack of definitions calling this silly game football. And there is a reason for that. Some silly americans give us a bad name by not noticing what is going on in the rest of the world and don't realize that there was already a real sport called football when we made up our game, but everyone else in the world knows whats up.
P.S. Please, if you are American please stop saying the S word (s****r)and saying that our american game is better than real football. If you are not american just know that not all of us are confused faggots.
Football is the best and most popular sport in the world.

A lovely game that alot of people play.
Also the most importmant sport in the world.
Very famous, but also fun for people who like football.
If you dont play football yet, i would say:
Give it a try!

Ofcourse if you start at older age, you wont get as good as Ronaldo, Messi, ...
But doesnt matter, its just for fun! ( Mostly )
D1: " Wanna play some Football?"
D2: " Football is shit!"
D1: " Just cause you cant play football, no reason to call it shit! "

A variety of games that which Europeans and Americans tend to argue over pointlessly till the end of time as to which version is "right" never minding the fact that due to Cultural Mutation different words can mean different things in other places
Typically Americans profess love for the version that involves padding and an ovoid ball in which the point of the game is to move the ball ten yards down the field at a time through either rushing or passing before passing into the plain of the "End Zone" placed at either ends of a 100 Yard Field to score points
Europeans tend to extol the virtues of a much simpler sport that only requires a pair of goals placed at either end of a field and is played with a checkered Spherical Ball
American: Hey, lets go play Soccer!
European: HEY FUCK YOU! ITS CALLED FOOTBALL YOU IGNORANT YANK!
Rest of World: Oh for fuck's sake stop arguing and just play dammit!
