This is a meanigless arguement. I love watching both, they both have great sapects and some not so great aspets. I think it is VERY important that
before anyone chimes in how the other is lame trust me you probably wouldn't be saying this if you grew up playing and watching said sport.
which sport would naturally called football, hmm, not a tough one.
American Football: I love it (GO CHARGERS!!!) cause I grew up playing it and watching it but have lived abroad in football nations and understand it
is way too complicated and not a pure sport, if you didnt grow up with it would seem alien. Stopping and starting, commercial breaks, instant replay,
constantly changing rules, etc. Think of it as a chess match, a game of strategy. And yes they wear pads, I could see peolple saying that is weak but
the hits, oh the hits!!!
Football: The worlds largest sport, anyone can play it dont need to be rich and wear expensive gear. IMO the purest form of sport (besides maybe
boxing,UFC, etc) a ball and two nets. The best things in life seem simple at first but are endlessly complex. The fact that it is played in the world
stage Aussie Rules, American Football not in any way world sports. Football is the worlds universal language and equalizer. Cultures play football
based on their cultural aspect, there view on life, this is so fascinating.
I could go on for pages but its getting late here. I havent comented on the other footballs and rugby league, union because havent watched enough to
give a decent opinion. But Aussie rules, Rules! Except for those shorts, what is up with that?
Trying like a madman to get World Cup 2006 tickets and it is hard as hell but you never know.
