Splack was here
FogofWar: "Football in the USA is basically what Aussies call Ruby.
Ruby is played by MEN
American football is played by big fragile men with a lot of equipment so they don't get hurt Sad bunch."
HA HA HA HA HA HA You've never watched a football game have you? You should try playing it. "American" football is the same as "Canadian" football. It's far, far, far rougher than you think....they wear equipment because they hit so damn hard....harder than any other sport actually. They tested the tackle of a CFL (Canadian Football League) linebacker, it was over 120 G's....over 100 times higher than a car crash. Tell Jessie Lumsden that the equipment is so they don't get hurt, and that he is fragile...I watched him pop his dislocated shoulder back in on the field after it was hit clean out of the socket. I saw Ricky Ray get sacked so hard he was out cold for long enough that he didn't notice when Maurice Lloyd stepped on his arm.
"let the americans call football soccer coz they SIMPLY could not think of a name for one of their own national sports which is sad, why not touchdown ball, crash helmet ball or even men-in-tights ball, lose the tights it doesnt look very macho does it"
...that's quite the hostility towards the US....it's our game here in Canada too buddy; we call it Football as well....and it's because of the shape of the ball, and it is kicked quite frequently.
"And just for the record, soccer players could learn a thing or 2 from aussie rules football players and rugby players...as in if they get a little tap on the ankle, they don't have to collapse in a screaming heap, rolling around the ground, like they've been shot."
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
really, who cares what you call it? American Football is so much fun, but CANADIAN Football is even better!!!! National Football League (NFL) is the American league, and while they are amazingly talented, and hit harder than you could dream of, the Canadian Football League (CFL) uses a larger field, with an extra man, and one less down to make the plays. NFL uses a 100 yard field, CFL uses a 110 yard field, plus far wider, they have 12 men on their line, and the NFL has 4 downs to make 10 yards, CFL has 3 downs to make 10 yards. GO CFL!!! Roughriders all the way!
♠_Krash_♠: soccer,football,fairyball tis all the same..
fog you say nfl is the toughest sport...please,you have to be joking
Nrl - national rugby league is the toughest bar none,hit as hard as you want,as long as its below the neck,and they wear nothing but mouth guards.And when you belt your opponet,you really get to belt him
And state of origin has no peer
You gonna belt the opposition,do it properly (h)

Check the thread title Dan.
Whoa Krash, those are some hard hits. Rugby is one hell of a tough sport, no doubt.
Only point I'd like to make is that in answer to the question soccer or football, it's FOOTBALL!
♠_Krash_♠: Here its called soccer,so soccer it is
Dantheman- ice hockey!! Bahahahahahahahaha!!
Figure skating is a tougher sport than ice hockey,oh oh put some shoulder pads and a helmet on,i dont wanna get hurt,i might get bruised..
'NiceCutieeee(^^_^^): Football and soccer ,both .
Pro evolution " soccer ", if you dont know this game you are a bad and try to play mario .
shane: its football not soccer,all europe asia and africa it football-fifa-International Federation of Association Football.the game is played with your feet so football. american football you carry the ball and occasionally kick the ball
trinnyvin: Ahhh, American football, a game played pretty much exclusively in America, Aussie rules football, a game played exclusively in Australia, "Association Football", a global game played all around the world, and the first of the games of football to be ratified, therefore called football and not F*****g that gay name soccer!
trev106: Couldnt careless if its called football overseas but in Australia it is soccer, it really is no big deal. And heres some Aussie rules hits
MadJac: All I hear is the game is played with your feet so it should be called "Football". Well I have socks on my feet so why cant I call it soccer? Is Baseball played exclusively with "Bases"? I guess to answer the question. American football is extremely popular in the USA. It is just a way of life for a majority of us. We are not going to name another sport the same thing especially because most Americans could give a rats ass about guys running up and done a pitch for 90 minutes maybe scoring a goal or two a game. Im not saying this to insult soccer because I find he World Cup to be very exciting. Im just saying most Americans dont have the attention span for soccer or "futbol" When you say football in America people are going to say "Oh I love the Dallas Cowboys" not "How about DC United?"
