This video is for a project I had to do for my Online News class. I had to use any type of multimedia to cover an event or interview someone that had to do with the topic I had been blogging about...

it is a complicated game and if you don't understand it, it just looks like players crashing into each other. Once you know the game and see all the strategy, you'll realize it is one of the best games. I was like you the first time too, but I gave it more time so that I could learn the game, give it another chance and you may realize the beauty of the sport.

 I like baseball better than soccer. Not only US but also most east Asia such as Taiwan dislike soccer. At least It's not so popular here. I'm not interested in soccer at all, and puzzling why Europeans and South Americans so crazy about it? It looks like a group of dolphins or  dogs chasing a ball. Do not feel tired yet? I think that genetic factors may be involved in the hobbies.

Dude thats just the stupidest thing i have ever heard.... There are really big and strong footballers ( as in the real foot-ball... not the hand-egg) players. And there are really skinny handeggers... Handegg players are athletes just like footballers... And footballers need brains.. And 90% of handegg players (american football players) are big brutes that do no thinking what so ever...
Report spam or abuse
Yep... And that's the whole point of it... American "football" should have been named association football, because you are associating the name football to a game that has nothing to do with football... Or maybe american rugby... That would be the most apropriate name.

Football just makes more sense than Soccer in the name. FOOTball let's you know you play it with your feet but the name Soccer sounds like you just wear socks or something. Football makes much more sense.

Americans biggest problem is that they play this sport without heart. And that they established this sport as a womens game. I lived in Usa for 7 years, and played soccer in college too. But in general you guys dont care, and you guys think too much, instead of letting your pride guide you. Every Soccer Nation can be recognized by the way they play. The Latinos have a lot of speed and creativity. The Africans are physically stronger. The Asians use martial arts. European are masterminds. u?

American "Football" doesn't even deserve to have that name, how can you name a sport football when the less that you use is your feet. Also this game represents a step back in human evolution, if you are proud of your strenght it means that you still live in the caves' age. Finally, I agree football is cheap, the only you need is a ball, yes that is true, and that is why it is fantastic, is like E=mc2, elegant by its simplicity.

" Out of some form of jealousy I suppose I always hear European soccer fans bad mouthing football but they never have a valid argument." - Hmmm....I don't think you understand what the word "jealousy" means. To be jealous of handegg, we'd need to have something to be "jealous" of.. An unpopular American sporting activity where the players dress up in spandex tights & spacesuits to run into each other repeatedly just doesn't cut it for us.

but the american football ball is a foot long. why we took the name, idk.
Report spam or abuse
Lol punting never happens? Wow you're stupid. Teams almost always punt on 4th punt. Kick a Point After Try (PAT), or kick a field goal if they are close enough to the endzone. So saying they rarely use their feet is an understatement. Oh and first off, how is that an egg? What kind of mutated "eggs" do you guys have. And if you look up ball, then what a football is is a ball. But using resources must be too complicated for you.

People already get hurt they hit each other so hard. Football players actually has muscles. If any football players (you use your feet and it is a ball) fought a soccer player, the football player would win 10 times out of 10.

To be honest, I don't care if the U.S. soccer team wins at all, except maybe the world cup. And what are you talking about with those scores I don't want the scoring to be the same, I just want scoring. Just like baseball and hockey, scores are in increments of 1, but there are never ties in baseball, and it's pretty rare in hockey. And it's skill for NHL, MLB, NBA, and NFL too.

Most people could run up and down a soccer field for 90 minutes and not score. Not much skill there.

Fair enough if people don't like football but I don't how anyone can look past Rugby if you want a tough tackling game. It's more exciting than American Football which is, frankly, boring in comparison. You look at people like Brian O'Driscoll in his heyday, there's no contest. Those are real sportsman who put their bodies on the line. Not a group of protected padded fat guys slapping at each other while a guy tries to throw a ball up the pitch & hoping someone might catch it in a certain area.

Baseball takes more skill. Just try hitting a 90-100 miles per hour fastball with a bat and getting a base hit. Or hitting any of the numerous pitches. Soccer is so much easier. You hit a ball with your football, many times when it's not moving. And get a giant box to score in. And 3-4 Billion is the world is poor and can barely even afford running water. Football, hockey, baseball, and basketball cost more money than 1 balll and a field.

Rugby is a form of football just as soccer is. Football as a word can be traced back to the middle ages when people ran with the ball in hand. It was called football as it was played on foot and not horse back hence football. American Ruby would not be an accurate title as it would suggest that it came directly from rugby when it fact it came from football.

Football requires more skill than any sport. You need to get a football, watch skill school on youtube and just try copying. And if its so bad, then why do 3-4billion people follow it then ?

Ball-1.A solid or hollow sphere or ovoid, esp. one that is kicked, thrown, or hit in a game Ovoid-Egg-shaped So a football is infact a football if your definition of football is handegg because A) it's ovoid so it is infact a ball, and b) it is thrown. So either a football is a ball or it's not. Have you learned about the dictionary at school, because I doubt it.

Any Football lover dosnt, say soccer, although from a american point of veiw you could say "World Football" (much better then soccer) as apposed to american football (British Rugby off-shoot game). He said our game World Football has not been in the U.S. for long...wrong Football in the U.S. celabrated 100 year in 1976. Its nice to see the Womens game more established over there... just to finnish, I would ask all Americans to use "World Football" when talking of the beutifull game!

All you can do is insult people when you get a statement that that shuts you up... You can't even read straight... I didn't say, never... I didn't say there was never a punt, i said ocasionally, rarely. If you went to school and learnt something usefull you would know the difference. Tell me... in 3 hours game time 10 minutes are dedicated to actually KICK the ball... The rest of the game players carry the ball in hand... THESE are facts, you can't just say no to them... It makes you look stupid

I doubt he is of English descent as his name is Walhstrom. Sounds Scandinavian to me. While I believe have the right to like what they want, in my opinion he is right to like soccer more than American football. A game with only 10 to 15 minutes of action lasting 3 hours seriously has something wrong with it. American football is a joke and will always be considered that beyond the American shores.

We don't play handegg coz it's a sport for the lowest common denominator of human athlete. Almost every single aspect of it is unskilled & backwards......How else do rejects from other sports who haven't even played the game still get offered pro contracts (Lawrence Okoye etc)? It even took handegg kickers a whole 50 years to realize what every European 6 year old knows innately, that it's more efficient to kick a ball with your instep than with your toe.. wikipedia[dot]org/wiki/Pete_Go­golak

@hugo mendoza being a good athlete doesn't make you good at football just as being tall doesn't make you good at basketball, its irrelevant that the US does well at the Olympics and has good athletes, look at Rooney and Messi, there are probably 500 players out there who are better athletes but them two are two of the best in the world and messi is the best.

I'm sorry, i can't agree with that... A ball in my dictionary, or maybe in my language, and in common sense, means that's it's a sphere, period... There are objects which have the form of a ball and are used in sports. In case of football, you have an object called the ball (because it has the shape of one), and it's played actually kicking the ball, hence, FootBall.. You see? Wheras in Handegg (aka American Football) it's an object which has an ovoid shape and it's thrown, hence Handegg...
