    Ew... Thought this was regular football.. From now on, american football is called American Football, and football would be the normal football aka soccer. Like the rest of the world call it.

    Go United, Beating Newcastle 2-0.. 2nd half to start!

    I hate to have to say it.

    Football, aka. real men's footy
    http://m.gmgrd.co.uk/res/951.$plit/C...A59%3A44%3A456
    Involves a ball, where kicking - using one's feet - is the main component for it's transportation.

    American "football", aka. armpit-egg
    http://medicineworld.org/images/blog...ayer-11681.jpg
    Involves a melon or egg shaped bladder, and carrying - in one's armpit - is the main component for it's transportation.

    On subject, my country had a brilliant match just days ago, 2 teams of youngsters duking it out:

    You Europeans are clearly confused. You're talking about SOCCER not football which is a sport played professionally in both America and Canada. This is real football.

    And if you're curious as to how it's played all you need do is watch a team by the name of the "Green Bay Packers". They're the best team in the history of the sport and loved by pretty much everyone. Those who don't love the Pack make baby Jesus cry by poking him with a sharp stick.

    Sorry, but I just have to say it's laughable that you posted a picture of Cristiano Ronaldo and labelled it real men's footy.

    It is a real man's game but this pic would suit better...Super Fletch of AFC Bournemouth...not Mr Go-down-like-a-sack-of-potatoes-after-a-tap.

    Being both a Raiders fan and a Buccaneers fan, I look at the upcoming season with a "please, please don't be too embarassingly bad" attitude.

    This is my favorite time of year. I'm a Giants fan as well. I don't know where they found that Victor Cruz kid, but I hope he plays with the first team this week.

    The majority of this planet has is right, football is the game with the round ball.

    Probably the best ball ever kicked:
