Unlimited variables on a 2 dimensional platform. Every play starts from the same limited standpoint with movement restricted before each play. Soccer on the other hand is 3 dimnsional in terms of variables. Not to say I don't appreciate the strategy in American football, it's just it's strategy based on standardisation

Money is a huge factor. Not only the players but the PR aspect. You can't have a player die on the field, it would obliterate market share. Furthermore, NFL athletes are literally gladiators. What other sports are there where you have guys who are 6'7" 250-350 pounds running into each other at 18mph?


I do agree it's not for the faint of heart with all the running/slamming into each other etc, thanks for your reply.

Just wasted 10 minutes of my life watching Ind/Jax NFL game, boring as #...3 cigarette/chat with officials breaks in that short time.
Lame, tame, and lacking stamina compared to rugby...fat blokes jumping into each other then having a smoke break because it tired them out lol

Hahaha!
Hahaha!
It is lame though all body armoured up and can't run more than 5 yards without taking a 5 minute break.
They used to play without thin plastic pads. Guess what? People died.People got put in comas.Permanent disabilities. People got paralyzed. So now we have pads and a helmet. Why does ice hockey have pads and a helmet?...Safety
Fat blokes with no stamina hiding under body armour because they can't take the impacts rugby players take for full 40 minute half's.
Why don't you see many RFU/RFL playing in the NFL?
NFL ain't awesome it's tame and lame lol

That is your opinion.

Nope you invented that.
I'm asserting that body armour,thin plastic pads smoke breaks every 2 minutesSetting up the next play. American football is a turn based game., and high body fat percentage is not found in rugby union.Your underestimating how athletic and fast NFL players are.
You invented the rest.


American football is a turn based game. Like chess, Final fantasy tactics,Bowling or poker.
Challenge:Strategy and counter-strategy.Legalism. Trickery. Mind games. Throwing into tight windows.The right balance between physicality and finesse.

Association football is free flowing and dynamic. Like "Tales of" RPGs,Warcraft,NASCAR,Formula 1,StarCraft,RTS
Challenge:On the fly decision making,creativity, misdirection, coordination.




Playing QB is VERY difficult. They are not just "standing around" or "having a break".

American football is not awesome , real football is.



Wrong! American football is far more entertaining than our football and I dislike both of them. I hate football but I hate Celtic more...

I agree with you, I am a huge football fan as well. I would like to get some advice on online streaming services where I can watch games. I have found one at livesports.one... Have you ever tried it? Maybe you can recommend me something too?
