    Re: Football (soccer for americans) vs American football (hand-egg)

    People always bring the use of pads in. Again, different types of skill sets. The hits are different in American Football. Talking to a friend that played Rugby and American Football. But the force a person get's hit is much more severe in American Football. Imagine going jumping to catch a pass and in mid air get layed out by Free Safety or Linebacker. I speak from experience that it will take your breath away.

    Not downgrading the the others sports discussed. I mean it's a cultural bias for the most part.

    Regardless, both versions are "real" football. Football is a term that varies from region to region. Football could mean American Football, Association football, Gaelic Football, Australian football, each with thier own scoring and rules. Amerian football originated from Association football, then adapted rugby rules, and over time evolved into what it is now. The word "soccer" is derived from an abbreviation (Assoc. ) from "football association" and was originated in England.

    I prefer American football because America (historically) hasnt had a strong Association football league, compared to the rest of the world, so it never received to popularity (again, in America) as American football. I've played both sports and find them both fun in different ways.

    Its only picked up in the last decade (maybe). Historically our (football) soccer teams havent been that succesfful in league play; at least not like the rest of the world has. (American football) Football has always overshadowed it.

    yeah but every time i watch MLS match the stadium is always packed, meaning soccer is just getting better and better in USA, but still i don't think it will surpass American football popularity anytime soon.............
