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

    It's different skill sets are used. It's an apples to oranges comparison. But being culturally biased I like American Football better. It's not just running, hitting, throwing. There's a strategy involved. What play to break down the defense. Which formation to stop the offense. And if you have the perfect play, there's that factor of an outstanding player that can make your plans seem worthless. Apart from athleticism, it's coaches choosing plays, players calling audibles.

If you watch the whole game of an exciting football mach, you can easily see what it takes to win a football match.

    Handball, is just so vulgarian. When the match is on, it looks like the players are fighting with each other...Pretty much sucks.
    yes who can forget those 1% of the games of soccer in which a team scores more then 3 points. You have to be more athletic, faster, more physical, and smarter to play football. Its a grown mans sport really I wouldnt expect soccer players to understand

    Grown mans' sport? More like for primitive men. The way an American football match starts, it looks like gorillas from Disney's Tarzan are hugging themselves.

    Anyhow, this preference depends on just a matter of culture. http://www.narutobase.net/forums/sho...00#post4300000

    Agreed. Also Football players (real) play without protector which makes the physical contact more heavy.

    You guys clearly haven't seen how football could become more brutal....

    Apparently shin guards arent protection ¬_¬

    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.

    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.

    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.
