If we stuck to just voting, that would be boring.

If I want to watch men slogging each other, which is brilliant once in a while,


Slogging? How does that even apply to American Football?

I prefer rugby infinitely. No armor, just flesh against flesh.


Rugby players are different. They don't have a 300lb, 6'8" guy running at full speed to tackle him. (With his 3 friends.) You're telling me you want to get buried under that mess without any protection?

The near misses, attempts, drives, dribbles, passes are what makes football enjoyable, not just the goals.
'

That could apply to American Football as well. If you were to actually learn and understand it, you would find it very exciting. I can't even describe the feeling.

it's not the only word they have stolen for their own use..


It's not like it's a big deal. You seem to be forgetting that the different cultures around the world is what makes life so cool. If we all agree that Football should be used only for soccer in the entire world, it would be a pretty boring existence.

I would call tackling, slogging.

Of course I would want protection. Rugby players are taught to tackle with precision and with safety in mind, so the tackles are softer. Rugby players too, weigh near that, so it doesn't mean American footballers tackle with more force just due to size. But, and this is a large caveat, taking a hit without any padding, with that kind of force, albeit weaker, is still harsher, and I like that stuff more. Throw in the fact that rugby players have to endure and play longer with fewer breaks, and it makes for me, a better sport to watch.

That could apply to American Football as well. If you were to actually learn and understand it, you would find it very exciting. I can't even describe the feeling.


I wasn't even talking about American football. I was explaining to Terry the whole joy package of football/soccer.

Whilst it's nice to have free-flowing scoring,

it takes away the joy of scoring. when was the last time you saw a basketball player go nuts for scoring 2 points? only at the very end of the game if it is really close and it is the winning score.

no nonsense tackling, defending were the norm, rather than purely about scoring

italy is known for their strong defence, but they are turning over to a more offensive game now whit the approaching newer generation.
the best place to see old fashion football is the african cup. its better then the world cup in my opinion.

You're telling me you want to get buried under that mess without any protection?

take it like a real man

That could apply to American Football as well. If you were to actually learn and understand it, you would find it very exciting.

thats the same whit nearly any sport. "if you were to actually learn and understand football (soccer) , you would find it... (well, i dont like them either to watch) very exciting."

It's not like it's a big deal. You seem to be forgetting that the different cultures around the world is what makes life so cool. If we all agree that Football should be used only for soccer in the entire world, it would be a pretty boring existence.

lol.... just lol. xD

oke, i'm done.
i dont say it a big deal.
i think it's weird to put this case on the cultural differences bench.
i think it shows lack of creativity/inspiration when the name was choosen. (like, the word. "americans&quot

Yes, but I wouldn't mind watching a 7-5 Arsenal-Reading game once in a while. I just don't enjoy 1-0 Stoke, long ball matches if they come in waves.

Serie A is mean. Mean in defence. Yes, I would agree the AC is more old-fashioned, if only because African teams don't often follow European ways!

the more goals the better. but even this is getting boring.

Everything except the GK needs improving.

You'll notice I said it "could apply as well to American football."

Throw in the fact that rugby players have to endure and play longer with fewer breaks, and it makes for me, a better sport to watch.


Have you ever actually watched whole games of American football? I've watched both Rugby and Soccer/Football, and they are pretty cool I guess.

The good thing about the breaks between every play in American football is that the 40secs gives you time to go get something to drink or eat.

*ignoring this incessant debate going on*

Football. Not football...actual football.

'ey Fatso... Did that come out loud? Oopss...

The breaks also give you time to discuss what's going on without missing anything. That's always good, so as not to be rude.

^Real football is much, much better than the "football" that stops every five seconds, where you have to wear pads, and where people get too into it.

People get too into it? Is that why a riot occurs every year over a win or loss, or people get crushed in a stadium that is overcrowded to watch soccer/football? People get too into American football. LoL

Also ironblade, this isn't a vote on which sport you like better, but which sporting event is better (FIFA world cup, or the Super Bowl.) Your post needs clarification or a vote will not be counted.
-

Well, I'm going with the Superbowl on this one. I find it much more enjoyable to watch one 4-5 hour game rather then 32 days worth... How do people stand it? Especially if only one goal is scored in the whole game... I almost cracked up when I watched the World cup in 2010, (only sporting event available besides baseball.)

Ugh. Fine FIFA world cup. Did I actually have to say that? I said real football is much better.
