I've always been under the impression that "football" implies a game that people play with their feet. I'm surprised that North Americans haven't come up with the epiphany of calling handball "football", yet.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

Yeah,,,,you go ahead and slide tackle me a few times then we'll suit up in those "poofter pads" we'll line up 10 yards away from each other then you stand there and I'll give you a concussion through that helmet, break you jaw, rattle your teeth out of your head, give you whiplash and crack your ribs.
Rugby -a tough game. Soccer- isn't. I've played all 3. Rugby and Soccer don't have the constant high speed collision of Football. In football you use EVERY part of your body-especially your balls.

Me and a million psycho kids who grew up in the 70's wanted to BE either Jack Lambert or Eviel Knieval.

LAMBERT!!!! :thumbsup:

I love how the Brits love to complain about the whole football soccer business. The word soccer actually originates from England. It was a short-term for Association Football, and the Americans kept the term. Personally, I think maybe "pig skin" would be a more fitting name for American Football, but there's no need to argue as long as we all understand each other. :)

Sure, it's not exactly Wendyball, but what with all the tea breaks and measuring every 2 seconds for five minutes, I'm not sure constant is the correct word.
That said, I quite like the highlights they have over at the NFL website.
