Except the origin of the word "football" goes back as a catch-all term for ball games played on foot, as opposed to horseback

American football is called "Football" because all play is done when the player with the ball is on his feet. Once the player with the ball is off his feet (not in the air either), that play is over. The basic idea to defense to to get the player with the ball off of his feet with a "tackle". When a player is taken off his feet, he is Downed. Each possession of the ball, a team is allowed up to four attempts to move play 10 yards. Hence why they use the term "Downs".

Don't like "soccer" but the guy is making sense.
7 years ago
That's because he's English.
7 years ago
And like all English, has an inferiority complex when it comes to the US.
7 years ago
But he still makes sense.

Soccer is full of faggots that pretend to be fouled in order to have other players ejected, they don't even keep official time, extra time at the end is just an estimation by the refs. One thing would remedy all of that and that is replays, but no the sport is played in third world countries that can't afford such lavish technology so we all have to sink to their level.

I believe John Cleese should just stick to getting old. So far, that's the only thing he's good at.

haha when he's right he's right. Still, those 4 seconds are far more entertaining than an hour and a half of english football. And saying no thought is involved is pretty retarded and leaving out the fact mucho skill is needed to play, atleast at a pro-level, seemed convenient.
7 years ago
Mucho skill? Is that an oxymoron or something?

DeadForeSkin has a point,of the thousands of soccer players worldwide only a handful of them could play football,whereas on the other hand, soccer can be played by anyone and the only reason it is so goddamn boring is because there are no real niggas trying to play that bullshit.

i'm still waiting for beckham or ronaldo or whatever their pussy name might be to get the pads on and go over the middle into double coverage.

if they are so tough and fast and "creative" they should be able to make everybody miss them. right?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Rugby League is a tougher sport then your Football, even the daintier Australian Football is tougher then your Football...who the fuck wears pads?
7 years ago
oh yeah, that's right, women wear pads...for when their vagina's leak..
7 years ago
Yea, because in american football you need the gear or you can die, but in rugby no gear is necessary. Ever wonder why?

Who wouldn't want to wear Shoulder Guards when you have to get tackled by a 350 pound lineman over and over, over the course of a few hours. Get hit by one of you limey fruits doesn't warrant the need for any protection.

...Also up until about 70 years ago guys were always getting crippled of killed, so they had to give them some protection.

*or
7 years ago
Still happens in Rugby but at least they don't get all fucking gay and pad up.
7 years ago
The only reason you're getting crippled and killed in your sport is because to 'tackle' you're pretty much just running headfirst in to one another as fast as you can, like retarded children that don't understand human biology and think their neck battering ram.
