The Real Football Thread

Does anyone here watch college football or NFL? I didn't see a discussion about football so I thought I'd start one as I'm a big fan.

I love football, but I'm not so sure RGD is the place for this thread. Maybe it should mosey on down to LA.

P.S. Go Patriots! WooO!!!

WTS. First non-enlgish, then size. It's a good thing you don't get wp for sucking at sig-making. Give me another week and I'll figure it out.

The soccer/football thread inspired me to create this. I thought if there was a soccer thread, there should be a football one too right?

I've never tried football, but rugby because lack of protective gears in rugby makes it a lot cheaper, you only need a ball or pigs blatter or what they did used before industrial revolution, somthing from big though... And Man, I seriously want to train same thing with protective gears...

I am complete n00b in NFL but I like Los Angeles Raiders, if they still exist. It doesn't matter how good or bad they are, they just have very good colours and logo...

CFL.

You know you want it.

In all honesty, I don't really watch football. It's too slow for me.

Here's an interesting statistic:

United States total population: 281,421,906 (as of April 1, 2000).
The aprox. number of people who consider american football real football is 281,421,906.

World total population: 6,082,966,429( as of April 1,2000).
The aprox. number of people who consider soccer (as you americans named it) real football is 5,801,544,523.

For every person who believes american football is real footbal there are 20 who say soccer is real football.

I will not even go into the minor detail that american football is mainly played with hands.. You go ahead and think what you want, because americans are right and the rest of the world is wrong.

The real football is in fact what you yanks call soccer. It was around long before grid iron

Still, your entitled to a thread discussing the fake football!

Yeah how can you call American football, when there are all of 3 plays in the game involving the feet, kickoff, punt and field goal.
We need to brainstorm a new name for the sport.

Long Live The Red!!!

You play football with your FOOT. American "football" isn't played with your foot, except for the running part.

This is just a thread about american football and what teams people like. It's not about what the real football is, please make another thread if you want to debate it.

PS- woohoo on the win over OSU

Here we go, get ready for the traditional arrogant American answer! *drumroll*

Every American counts as 40 of any other country people! So we still win! Muahahahaha.

Ok I'm just kidding. Honestly I don't really think it matters what it's called.

And forget the Broncos, or whoever the crap else. Pats all the way. Slow start, I'll admit, but we're gonna take the superbowl once again!

well, you did say american football is the real football, and you're wrong, so he was correcting you as you wrongly stated what you thought was fact.

also, american football-a game played by those who are not man enough to play rugby, the best sport in the world.

Way to go with the blame America first mentality

It's actually the Brits at fault for the word soccer.

Once soccer became the word for football, what were we to call the new game which you all know as American football? Hand ball? Already invented. Throwball? Rushball? Tackleball? American Rugby? The only term that was both one word and sounded good was football.

And football actually makes perfect sense when you consider the term can use used for any ball game played on "foot". (As opposed to mounted like polo, etc)

I'm a diehard Florida Gators fan! Props to Texas for their win, and I have to say that Vince Young is one of the best players in the country (not as good as Leinhart or Bush, but good). But the Gators beating UGA....WOOOOOT

Soccer isn't the British word for football. that is just an American misunderstanding.

Soccer comes from a reduction of the phrase 'Association Football' - AsSOCiation football...soccer..get it? The Association is the FA, so soccer refers only to matches organised by the FA. If it isn't association football then it isn't soccer - it is football.

Nobody minds it being called American Football, it is Konsepts comment that Ameican football that is the 'real football' that has raised objections.
