I vote for FIFA, because American "hand egg" does not compare to real football. Though, I'm American too. And I also like American Football. I just like Soccer more, I guess?

I don't like either of them, but I vote for FIFA, because it's the only one that I can stand to watch without smashing the TV.

Don't call it hand egg. It's American Football, please refer to it by it's rightful name. (Even though it doesn't technically use the foot in every play, it does require a great amount of lower body skill. Not only that, but hand egg doesn't really make sense.)

Also, it may offend some people. It would kind of like somebody calling Soccer (Football) "foot-round."

I'm voting super bowl. Awesome commercials aside, I prefer the level of strategy that goes into the plays instead of 'go out and win'.

My apologies. I just find it irritating how it's called Football, I suppose. Though, don't get me wrong, I enjoy watching the sport. And yes, it requires immense lower body strength and skill, but I prefer it if the name were adjusted or changed. That's my opinion, though.

Also, "foot-round" does not make any sense, as the word "ball" in "football" (soccer in the context I'm referring to) actually means, by definition, an object that is usually round or spherical. The only exception to the definition is American Football, but because it is the sole exception, I don't really consider it acceptable to call it a ball.

I mean, why change the definition of "ball" just for one sport?
As a side note, I don't mean to offend anybody in any way, shape or form. Just stating my thoughts and opinions.

Feel free to argue.

There is no set definition on what a ball is. Hand-egg makes as much sense as foot-round. The ball is ovoid, just like a soccer ball is spherical.

Since you watch american football, you should be aware that the ball is kicked frequently with the foot, so the name does fit. =D
