Soccer or Football. Which do you prefer?

Anything in the sporting world, you know... that stuff that happens outside... away from TV, console and/ or computers... I've heard rumors... but that's all they are, rumors.

well by my resources, football (although i doubt they called it that back then) was invented by aztecs who played with the severed heads of their enemies.

americans are strange like that, if its not broken, lets fix it, make it ten times as ineficient, and charge four times as much as the original and better one

My dad does a more dangous job than a football and he gets probaly a quarter what they get paid. They get paid a damn sight more than alot of jobs. And over played easily first my opinion and second all i see is football, I liked it when I didnt see it to much. Its like a song a song can be amazing but it can be over played
