Default Re: Football v American Football

Having played Soccer football in college and watched American football my whole life, I love them both. to say that soccer takes more skill is erroneous. The skill sets are entirely different. Just like volleyball and tennis. They both require skills just different ones. soccer players don't run at each other head on, hence the equipment, and American football players don't dive and fake injury to draw yellow or red cards. Real athletes don't feign injury. Like I said I love them both but they are entirely different games. One has a world wide audience, but there was an American game in Wembly this fall that was sold out if I remember correctly. And every game is started with a kick. hence football.
