Yeah, he really had no idea whatsoever what he was talking about.

There's way more creativity in American football than in soccer. You have to strategize and plan everything to the last detail, whereas in soccer it's just repetitive pass from center to forward, forward to center, center back to forward, forward back to center. If you're lucky you get to see one, maybe two scores in an hour! Gee whiz! How great!

I don't really have anything against soccer, it's fun to play, can sometimes be entertaining to watch. It's not really my cup of tea, but I can see other people enjoying it. I don't get why some people have to be such douches about allowing other people to enjoy American football. It's all personal preference.

Uh-oh, another football vs. football thread, duck and cover! To apperciate American football, you have to grow up with it.

The way he said it was "American 'football', as they call it". "As the call it" only referred to 'football'. He changed his tone of voice to suggest as much.

I disagree with you. Hugely.

I grew up with American Football and spent about 6 years in Spain with regular football.
Believe me, there is a lot more creativity in Football than in American football.
You have to think on your feet, there is no real time for developing a plan. But that does not mean that there is no strategizing or no planning whatsoever. Strategies and plans exist in football, in fact, they are a huge part of football, but you also have to wait for the right opportunity to arise to implement these plans and startegies.

And not only that, I have found that the average European "soccer" fan enjoys soccer infinitely more than the average American "football" fan enjoys "football".

What he says about it being pushed on people because of the opportunity for maximum advertising potential is right too.

he is right about the football being a game where you use your feet to kick a ball.
why would you even think to use your hands

Most Americans know of these sports.

Eh, I didn't find the video too funny because I'm more of a [American] Football fan. That guy didn't really seem to know too much of [American] Football either. Then again I could be completely wrong, it just seemed as though he didn't. He also tried to get a laugh out of a sport by repeating points many other people have said before and, to me, it's become very overdone and pretty annoying. Think of something different and then maybe it'll be funnier next time.

As for the sports debate, both of them have their moments, who really cares if someone thinks one sport is better than another? If some people like a sport more than another, does it truly make it better? No. I mean, I like [American] Football better than soccer, futbol, football (That should cover how most people here refer to that game) but that doesn't mean [American] Football is better. It means I like it more. Just let people watch or play whatever they want.


Edit: He is right about the advertisements though. I hate how they have all the ads and crap, that gets annoying after awhile. (One of the only exceptions is the Super Bowl, other than that, it's annoying)

I've got nothing against American Football but you can't argue that what he's saying is logically incorrect.

I don't understand why everybody has to argue over this. They're both totally different sports that shouldn't be compared to each other. It's like trying to compare an apple to a motorcycle. It just doesn't work.
