The real football

Let's be honest, wanting football to be played with feet is uncreative. And that really is the flaw with Soccer, it just isn't creative enough. American Football is creative, both in its use of nouns as well as in their play selections.

As for Rugby, I am sadly ignorant.

I hear in american " Football" you throw it more than you kick it. I think it should be called Throwball.

Those hits would be great without pads, much like rugby ;)

But honestly, those dutch/portugese diving were pretty shocking bad. If the contest is which sport is " harder physically" on the pitch, NFL hands down by a mile.

If we are talking about off the pitch enjoyment/atmosphere( crowd signing,etc). then European football by a mile.

I think Rugby would get pads if the hits were the same as the NFL. My understanding is that the NFL still gets more serious injuries than Rugby, with the pads (some actually argue BECAUSE of the pads, leads to more reckless hits.)

I'll tell you this, I went to a College Football game today and left at half time. It was moving too slow. Sometimes this doesn't happen. Sometimes Football keeps you into it. But Soccer always moves faster than football (not as fast as basketball, imo). And you know it is going to be 90 minutes (plus 2 or 3) plus halftime.

But the fans were still into it, 60,000+ crazy fools stomping around.

My problem with Soccer is that I was forced to watch all of my older siblings soccer games. Now THAT is boring. What is sad is when I look through home videos about half of them are soccer games.

Edit: And I am talking about terribad 10 year olds playing.

I get a lot of what you are saying, watching older siblings especially with the knowledge of tactics and how they play they game would have been boring. But that said it would be like me watching my siblings try and play NFL over in England, the standard would be laughable in comparison to how you guys play it over there and I wouldn't really base my view of the games enjoyment on that.

It is the sign that your sport hits hard. ;P

Really, though, you wear pads if not wearing pads means too many injuries. Like Soccer, they wear shin pads for a reason. If Rugby were to get more injuries than the NFL then they are crazy to not strap a few pads on. But the game play seems to be different. Those hits seemed far less reckless, which can be good.

And Sin my comments about siblings was mostly just in jest. In truth, watching kids play soccer is more enjoyable than basketball or football, when they are at a really young age. But I did hate being forced to those games....

Really, whatever sport you love 90+% of the time is what you grow up around. If you love the team you can enjoy it. Which is why I hate the Netherlands for defeating my team Brazil. Oh Melo, don't let their dives get in your head!

Bad injuries can happen in any sport unfortunately... tbh you probably get more leg breaks in soccer than AFL or NFL because its the only part really you make contact with. Shinpads merely lessen the extent of the break.

Double ouch.

Yeah, seems pads wouldn't do much for some breaks.
