I don't understand why "American football" is trashed while no one trashes soccer/football. Neither should be trashed at all, and it just shows ignorance to say it's not "real" or anything like that.

Take a wild guess!


And I think comparing American football and football and saying one is better than other is just ridiculous. It's like comparing leagues, just creates a lot of tension and it gets nowhere. People like different sports....get over it!

Voted NFL football...

Baseball is freaking boring.
You can't watch futbol out here in the states.
Watching basketball is dull (though I must say that I excell at, and enjoy playing it)
Anything college at all is boring.
Lingerie bowl isn't shown out here either.

No one said that American Football isn't a real sport. It just shouldn't be called football. In the same way that Australian football and Rugby shouldn't be called football.

In real football AKA soccer, you use your foot 98% of the time. In other codes of football, you use it less than 50% of the time. It just makes sense.

I call American football Gridiron...

Wrestling isn't a sport because it's fake, unless it's graeco-roman

Sorry but i have to butt in. Extremely rarely in AFL do you use your foot any less than say 60%.

Any side who ends up with more handballs than kicks loses.

And Soccer is terrible. Any sport where players kick the ball up and down for 90 minutes and finish in a nil-all draw is not for me. Boring as hell.

Handballs are much more common in the modern footy game (and usually more effective). Tackles are a massive part of the game, they are more about going for the player than the ball, and one must not forget hitouts and other one-percenters.

A goal in AFL is a cheap thrill. Rarely anything to get excited about. And the less goals scored in a soccer game, the more the tension builds towards the end of the match. And what's with behinds? Rewarding mediocre shots on goal?

There's more to soccer in the sense that it is about creating chances to score, and when one comes, it's an amazing thing, eben if the shot fires wide. It's about appreciating what a nil-all draw meanings, and reflecting upon the missed opportunities, or why few opportunities were created at all.

And most AFL games can be as good as over by half-time, as a Geelong fan like yourself should know from the trip to Port Adelaide on Sunday.

Soccer ain't the only sport which might seem like the ball going endlessly back and forth. Take basketball. The games are too long, and the scoring is too frequent.

One thing Aussie Ball has going for it that no other sports has: The high mark, the speccy. An amazing thing to witness in all of sport.
