Soccer or American Football?
Side Score: 8
Side Score: 13
Soccer has much less down time than american football, plus, you actually kick the ball with your feet the entire time, unlike american football where the ball is not in play most of the time, and the ball is usually carried with hands, plus the ball in american football isn't even round shaped. Can that really be called a ball? I would say it's more of a pointy ended egg shaped thingy that you throw, run with, kick, and do all sorts of other random things with. Soccer is so much better!
Soccer (or football, to give the sport its correct name), is faster paced than American football. American football is broken down into quarters, with a half-time break and two shorter breaks at the end of the first and third quarters. Games can potentially last up to three hours and have lineouts and stoppages to contend with.
Football matches last 90 minutes (unless it's a cup tie that ends in a draw and goes into extra-time, in which case the game lasts 120 minutes). Whilst football does have stoppages in play, the average time the ball is in play in American football is just 11 minutes (http://qz.com/150577/
So, the average percentage of actual play time in NFL is 8.3%
For football, the average is roughly two thirds.
So, examined from the stats, football involves a lot more action than American football, which is largely dominated by adverts. Football flows more naturally.
Then there is the global appeal. Football has seen many World Cups over the years, and the sport is truly a global one. American football is largely contained to American and Canada (it does exist elsewhere, but not nearly to the same extent as football).
Finally, the pedantic argument in me would be to look to the name of the sport - football is 'foot' and 'ball'. One version has a considerably higher foot to ball ratio than the other.
About 95% of the excitement in soccer is fake. It is created by the watcher thinking something might happen when it doesn't actually happen. In football even if the play doesn't result in a score it frequently results in an impressive demonstration of athleticism as the player actually improves their teams chance of scoring.
Football its way better !!!
