    Default Football: just another Basketball clone

    So I decided to pony up and give Football a try. I thought, "hey, this looks new and exciting!" but would you know it, it turns out it's just another basketball clone.

    Just like basketball, theres grip on the ball to help hold it. The ball is inflated. You have to get it to the opposite goal post while defending your own goal post. This is ridiculous! They thought they were being clever when they instituted the "ball isn't allowed to touch the ground" rule, but it's just a direct counter to basketball's no carrying rule. They're basically the same game - wtf?

    Why does everyone copy Basketball? Football isn't the only one - look at baseball, hockey, and curling!

    I take it you mean Football as in American Football, first played in 1869.
    They did not invent the genre.

    There are records of Football that date back to 388–311 BC.

    Basketball was first played in 1891.

    You are comparing a game that has only been out for 120 years to a one that had been established for 22 years before it was released.

    Now tell me the state of American Football in 1989 and we are comparing apples to apples.

    Hockey > Football.

    Just felt the need to throw that out there.
