American football is part of our cultural identity.


Hardly, as it was ripped off from Rugby Football.

Even the bloody balls the same shape.

Actually it does. That's why they have position players called - punter and kicker. There are whole units called the kickoff and punt return teams.

The third "example" looks like a college game not NFL...

The NFL does have rules on players faking injuries, does soccer?
I am serious too, I don't know soccer rules..
And if I recall correctly a player must leave the field when the clock is stopped for an injury,
Do soccer players get to stay on the field?

Football ( soccer players ) can be booked for faining injury. If they are booked for a second time in the game they are sent off. The team is then down to 10 men.

Yes, clock is stopped for injury. The game is over a 90 minute period. The longest i have even seen including injury time is 97 minutes.

Football ( soccer ) requires a greater deal of skill than NFL. That you have to agree with, as the game is played all with the feet, except when the ball goes out of play.

No I would not agree with that.
Every sport requires a certain skill set.
NFL quarterback is one of the hardest positions in sports to play at a high level.
Out of 32 teams about half have a quarterback that's pretty good.

Soccer players are relatively small compared to NFL players.
Cornerbacks are 5-10 to 6' tall 185lbs similar to soccer players.

I would say have one of your soccer players try to play cornerback on a wide receiver.
I guarantee you that your guy would get smoked.

Same goes for your sport. My guy would be left in a heap on the field.

No hands being used here. More difficult to play with the feet than hands.

You Yanks got the soccer a bit late... that's why/ Also i think it depends what sports you're bought up on or what you play at school. It's huge in Europe and South America, that's why all the best footballers are from these areas! Some African players are good but still behind.

Some games are boring for sure but most can be pretty entertaining. It has got softer over the years because of players getting real bad injuries like broken legs, fibias, broken ankles... I've seen a few players with their foot hanging off their ankle and a cracked shinbone sticking out... and they also can get head injuries as they dont wear helmets like they do in american football.

Couldn't I use the opposite argument?
Soccer players only have to use their feet.

Like Celtic dancers.....

Riverdance!

No they don't. The Goalkeeper uses hands and feet.

I think the biggest indication that American football is a very low bar in terms of sports is the fat layer the players have.

Face it. Compared to other sports, they're FAT.

Even featherweight boxers are more lean & cut.

You're looking at the lineman.
They put on the extra weight like sumo wrestlers for pushing.
Receivers, corners, qb's, and pretty much everything called a skill position are not fat..

Every soccer player more or less learns the same set of skills -- all with their feet.

Each football player has to learn a specialized set of skills depending on his position. Then he also has to memorize a complex series of plays and signals going with those plays. He has to perform his part in each play flawlessly or else the entire team breaks down.

If the wide receiver does not receive the proper play and runs his route wrong, the QB might throw to him and expect him to be where he is not. Play breaks down.

This carries on both sides of the ball.

Each game carries different needs and skill sets. It's a mistake to think one is more athletic than the other. But football has more widely varied needs in its personnel.

Linemen, maybe, but:



This is a wide receiver and cornerback. Neither or these two is fat.

Soccer requires some skill, unlike American football all you need to play that game is a fat gut, some pads and know how to run into a wall.

See posts above.

Linemen are the easy targets to pick on, but they represent about half the people out on the field at any one time for either team.
