It's one of the most popular sports in the world.

Who outside America really gives a shit about baseball or American piss-poor 'football' anyway?

Football is a game that should be played almost entirely with your feet...if it isn't....it isn't football....

In that case there is no such thing as "football". Each and every "football" allows another part of the body to touch the ball during the course of the game.

Aussie Rules football iis one of the most unorginal sports ever, its a mix between Gaelic Football and Rugby, well thats my opinion, i also think Hockey is a slower and more boring version of Hurling, American Football is Rugbys pansy half-brother.

AFL is nothing like rugby. At all. It is very similar in many ways, to Gaelic, but nothing like league or union. I saw this hybrid match once, of our best AFL and your best Gaelic players in this mixed game comp, and it was utterly stupid.

In rugby, the men control the ball. In AFL, the ball controls the men.

And let me just say this very loudly and clearly: American football is the biggest fucking joke in the entire world of sport. I'm tempted to make a thread about how much it sucks. It's worse than rugby's pansy half-brother; it's rugby's mentally deficient, pansy, bastard cousin who was dropped on its head as a baby, suffered from a lack of oxygen at birth, and is as predictable as reciting the alphabet in order from A to Z (that's 'zed', people, not bloody 'zee').

I loved the 1st line and didn't think it could be beaten... then I read the 2nd paragraph.
