I really don't see why soccer should be better than US football or vice versa. Both are senseless sports to keep the masses in front of their TV sets. The ones who really play just waste their time IMO.
I also don't get why any sport would simulate real life. In my whole life I never came to a poit where I had to keep an inch and someone wanted to take it from me.
If you compare it to war, then football is exactly what WWI was; two teams running like idiots against each other trying to get 100 meters of ground with losses far above the 10000.
Modern war is better; mobility and communication counts more than big numbers or a strong defense - does anybody remember the maginot line? Weaker but radio equipped German tanks outflanking the French strongpoints and blasting the stronger French tanks. That's modern life - be faster and more intelligent; now show me one sport that simulates that..

I'll stay with the sports I like: Rallye Racing and INF.

I'm with ya there Dolce916.

Iceman: Aussie rules is just bloke in tiny little shorts running around playing what can only be described as arial ping pong with a red ball.

In fact, AFL players are so retarded, its the only sport on earth, where you get a free kick, just for catching the ball. How f<u></u>ucking stupid is that?

Snakeye..

IF you don't understand why football emulates real life, then you've probably never played it before. And if you've never "gained an inch" and never had someone try to take it away from you, then you must be very young or live in a cave or both.

BTW... CONGRATS TO THE BALTIMORE RAVENS, BABY!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Wouldn't say I'm all too young. But still the old brain is trying to learn; why don't you just explain it to me(possibly without the remark, I didn't play it so I won't understand).

Apart from that I didn't say I wouldn't understand how football emulates life, but how ANY sport could emulate life..

I was close

This is what I wrote on the 25th.

The Giants will be fine as long as there quarterback is doing well, and I don't think that will be for long. You saw what happened after Siregusa (how the hell do you spell that anyway?) sat on the Oakland QB. Game over man! Game over! A shutout wouldn't surprise me a bit. Every high powered offense that has gone up against Baltimore has been shellshocked be the ferocity of that defense. You can see it in their eyes that they are not prepared, even though they thought they were. That's the impressive thing about Baltimore.

Not rocket science, but I was close. Way to go Ravens!!!

Am I not worth an explanation, why football emulates real life? Or did you just have no time to answer by now?

Football (American football) is the most rediculuous sport ever conceived. Lets take a look at the skills required to play:
1) Catch/throw a ball- gee, must take a lot of hard work to become proficient at that.
2) Run into people- retards can do that.

Oh, yea football takes no skill whatsoever! I bet Rogue could just go out on a field and immediately start throwing like Brett Favre!

(/sarcasm)

C'mon, you'd have a better case trying to convince people that playing video games is rediculous and stupid. Obviously some of you have no idea just how complicated a game of organized american football is.

sorry to disagree GalacticB but your way wrong there. In soccer giving and taking the inches happen in split seconds. I used to watch NFL but I lost interest after a while.

Snakeye, that would be soccer. The team that properly communicates, strategizes and executes with the most skill wins the game. In soccer everything happens really fast with no breaks every 30 seconds. You play for 45 minutes till half time and up to 90 minutes or more. Its about "balls control".

I dont get American Football coz I dont understand really get why they had to put on all that armor and then go running smacking into each other. Look at rugby - for Australians and Europeans, do you see them wearing armor? Padded Armor at that? They still going at it at full speed all the way.

That said... GO RAVENS!!!

I become really disappointed..

GalacticBulge:
If you don't want to write an explanation why football emualtes real life, then just post a short notice. If you don't talk to me because you think I'm an asshole, well, post this.

I slowly get the impression that you either have no arguments, or very little time.

Still looking forward to that post..

I_ABuGa:
Many sports contain elements you'll find in RL. Soccer does and so does Football(they do communicate quite a lot IIRC).
My point is, that no sport emulates RL because RL is too complex. In fact most sports are civilised ways to get rid of agressions, some more obvious(football, icehockey, soccer, boxing, martial-arts though I'd consider most of them rather a philosphy) some not that obvious(Tennis, Golf..)
