National Football League

Whats the deal with this sport? I have got a few questions

-Why all the padding?
-What do the big guys up the front do exactly?
-Why do you wear a helmet?
-Why does the game stop every 10 seconds?

I guess my main problem with NFL is the padding and such, i mean come on. Helmets, Shoulder Pads, chest guards, wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads,etc etc. In my opinion it comes off as a weak sport. I don't understand how anyone can get injured playing it.

Now I watch AFL (Australian Football League) which is a much better sport. People have to be athletic, good cardio, strong, fast, and intelligent. Unlike the boofheads sitting there in NFL. We dont wear helmets and such. We have shin guards, and mouth guards. Full contact sport it is. Best sport ever, I give you youtube.

They're not doing too bad now, they started the season off pretty bad. They are about a game and some percentage off the top eight. Sitting in 11th right now. I don't think they'll make the finals this year though.

The thing i dont like about football is that the game is not continious and it stops every 5 seconds. Rugby is better in this aspect.

-Why do you wear a helmet? so you don't get your skull crushed when you get tackled by 3 240 pound men
-Why does the game stop every 10 seconds? look up the rules, this will take to long to explain, especially if you don't even understand something as simple as wearing a helmet lol

AFL is cool and all, I'm not gonna knock it, but those guys aren't even half the size as most NFL players. So it doesn't really make sense to say they are more athletic, and it really doesn't make sense to question the helmets and pads, have someone like Ray Lewis or Shawne Merriman in there, and you will have a few deaths.
AFL>NFL
my answers are in bold

WL2FU pretty much took care of the answering of questions. As far as which is better, the numbers speak for themselves as far as I'm concerned. Ticket Revenue/TV Viewers/Merchandise Revenue = NFL>AFL
