Why is American Football more entertaining than soccer?

I mean, for euros that shit on American Football for only having "11" minutes of actual game time action and a bunch of commercials, that Green Bay/Arizona was probably one of the most entertaining sporting matches i've ever seen.

Is something like the Hail Mary, or the fucked up coin toss / dumb penalties equal the same as having a boring 0-0 draw the whole game, just for someone to score in the 90th minute? Who knows. But it seems to me that even for a game that has 11 minutes of actual game time seems really fucking entertaining for some reason.

What do you think?
>>
>watch for 3 and a half hours and endless adverts
>for 11 minutes entertainment

Why would you even do this to yourself.

I watch the highlights.
>>
>>65026402
I personally don't give shit for the fact that there's only 11 minutes of action.

It might well be that these 11 minutes are very entertaining. But it's the setup of these 11 minutes that doesn't make it worth watching.

If it were 11 straight minutes of action, that would be awesome, but why sit through 60 commercials, shots of players loafing around and endless replays?

The time in between plays is important though if you have an understanding of the game. I really don't see the difference between time between plays and dead possession in futball. What's the difference if no one is scoring in either instance? The ads are there for you to have a break to drink Bud Light the official beer of the NFL, talk about the game, and shitpost.

My favorite aspect of football is how difficult it is for one player to carry others at the end of the day though.

It's way more entertaining. It's counter strike for people who are autistic about athletecism.

i guess it depends on what your definition of "action" is, Because watching teams pass it around the back, dive, and send unsuccessful lob passes right to a defender/gk is not action, and that accounts for around 95% of the average soccer match.

Coming from someone who watches american football and soccer. NFL games typically have me interested throughout, just because there are only 16 games so each one has a bigger impact compared to all of the regular season soccer games. Though, watching the games for the United States in any world cup has me on the edge of my seat as much as any Panther game. They're both fun.

christ, australia coming through with the bants

In all honesty though, the strategy part is what makes the game interesting. You attempt to guess what play is coming, and see if you were right or not. Also, catches are fucking awesome, so are some runs, athletic ability in general. Ive been watching the pats long enough now that I can basically predict about 50 percent of the plays correctly, but belichick is one sneaky bastard. What I dont think you take into account is just how much preparation goes into the design and execution of plays on the defensive and offensive sides of the ball. hell, teams have a whole set of practice teamers who run plays against the real defense that coaches think the next opponent might run. Even plays that they haven't even seen yet on tape. The last super bowl was one because of one of these scout guys who predicted what the seahawks might run on the goal line, taught it to the defender(malcolm butler) who then intercepted the ball on the goal line because of what he had been taught about a play that the opponent had never run during the entirety of the season. There are hundreds of plays like this on each team, and 5 or so different varations of each play(different lineups, mirrors, etc.) This, along with the sheer athletic ability of the players is what makes football interesting.

theyre definitely opposites ... soccer is easily the most popular sport for girls and women to play in america. the best player in the world is literally the size of your average woman. it rewards feigning injuries, non-aggressiveness, draw games, whining, rewarding of non-achievements(people literally rate and admire 'skills' plays, basically in game tricks that lead to absolutely nothing). it's really the lowest of the low as far as athletic talent goes, these chaps could literally do nothing else in the world of sport other than maybe pro darts.

not true, soccer takes technique out the wazoo, and massive amounts of stamina, not to mention team tactics. I respect the sport, and it is a beautiful game, but it doesn't take the same amount of strategy that Football does. I an american and I grew up watching the Pats with my dad as he explained the game to me, so that is the sport I love and feel most attached to.

>surprised that the average length of career is so short

I'd like to see this statistic with only players who had a starting role for 16 games in a season, hell make it 10, I assure you it will more than double the career length. it's also dependent on the position. a good QB, or even a mediocre one, can have a 10+ year career; Peyton and Brady are examples of players with 20 year careers. Kickers and punters can have 20+ year careers too. other skill positions (WR, RB, CB) don't last much past the age of 30 due to decline in speed/agility.

but how many 35 year old soccer players are there? I doubt very many, mostly just the all stars

I've played and watched football since I was 5, but I think that American football is the superior tv sport. However nothing beats watching football live, it grants you a completely new perspective on the players work off the ball which changes so much when it comes to enjoyment. Watching a talented central midfielder live is probably my favorite thing when it comes to sport, and I love to watch a lot of different sports. Watching the NFL on my computer beats watching the PL, but nothing will ever come close to seeing my local club playing live

Because they are entertaining in different ways.

American football is designed to be short and sweet. Plays last a very short amount of time, and every single one of them matters. That's why you feel entertained after a game even though the amount of actual action was very short. The season is the same way. It barely lasts 4 months for most teams and little more for the others. Also its a single competition, as opposed to football where even the shit teams compete in at least 2 competitions every season.

Football on the other hand is much slower tempo constant spectacle where the appeal is that important plays can happen at any time but no one knows when. At any time a keeper can botch a goal kick to give away an easy goal, a player can slide in with a knee high tackle and dynamite his own team. Entertainment is provided not only by scores but also the numerous misses, dribbles, antics etc..Thats not to say that such things dont occur in american football, but they are not the main appeals. Also, football exists in gigantic volumes from numerous leagues within countless nations. If you watch enough leagues there is no such thing as a week, hell, even a day without football for the entire year. Euro football also feels more ad-libbed, with very few instances of rehearsed plays working out, in contrast to american football where every player knows exactly what they are going to do before the snap with occasional improvisations.

But the truth is that people mostly prefer the one they grew up with. Americans can't understand how europeans tolerate their kits being walking billboards and euros can't get how can someone watch a near 4 hour program for little over 10 minutes of action.

All in all they are the same, they just provide entertainment in different ways for different people.

pls no bully its just the views of a poor soviet block peasant

Not actually since penalties on "soccer" are really exciting and make even people that root for other teams watch it, unlike retarded people just throwing a handegg here and there
>But it seems to me that even for a game that has 11 minutes of actual game time seems really fucking entertaining for some reason

>>65027555
soccer is 90 minutes tied at 0. youre just watching an offense play keep-away with the ball for 10 minutes and theyre still at center field and havent got any closer to the goal. because the defenders advantage is disgusting.

handegg is commercials commercials commercials and whoops your 13 play drive just got completely nullified by a random stupid penalty. even when theres 20 penalties occurring on every play that go uncalled. also theres like 8 players on each side who never even touch the ball or need to display any kind of skill, they are just dumb pieces of meat.

basketball - every player must defend, every player must score, there is no insulting hierarchy of positions. every player is a completely unique combination of variable height, wingspan, first step, shooting, ball handling, IQ, man defender, team defender, that creates unlimited interesting combinations. a team can score 10 in a quarter or 40 in a quarter, theres huge variance in a single game. games are constantly decided in the final seconds of play in the most exciting way possible.
>>
>>65027706
The only reason hockey isn't tied to zero is because it doesn't have 90 minutes.
>>

no, because controlling and defending possession of a puck with a stick on offense is way easier than doing the same with a large ball with only your feet.
its way too easy for the defense in soccer to disrupt the advance of offense, one guy just has to sell out and slide and instantly theres a 50/50 play to redetermine possession.

Possession in soccer is a tactic that's used to draw opposing players out of position or run out time.

Sorry that you have Severe ADD and must see action 100% of the time. It's pretty clear you prefer checkers over chess.

How to play football(american) with 4-5 buddies on each side, can be played 2 hand touch or tackle, this example will be tackle, since I am not a pussy

>Offense:
1 QB
4 recievers

>Defense:
Just defend, can be any amount of people doing whatever you want, but usually 1 rusher, and four cover guys

Average play:
>4 total downs, 2 completions past the line of scrimmage is a first down

>Quarterback walks up to line of scrimmage, holds ball over the line of scrimmage, says hike, and steps back from the line

>Defense begins counting (1 mississippi...2 mississippi...up to 5 mississippi at which point he can run and try to tackle the Quarterback)

>Quarterback attempts to complete a pass, and does so, or the pass falls incomplete, or the defense intercepts the ball, or the qb is sacked

>Play continues like this until a turnover, or a touchdown is scored.

>Kickoffs are the same as in game, one team kicks, or throws off, the other team returns up the field until they score or are tackled

>No extra points

>Penalties are the same as in game(most prevalent are Pass Interference and holding)

>Keep scoring until an agreed upon limit, or just play for fun
>>
>>65028142
What th-
>>
>>65028151
also, usually no run plays are done because they just result in the fast guy scoring, or a big pileup, and pass plays are more fun in general
>>
>>65027936
>uncoordinated
yea all those denver receivers are coordinated faggot and they are in the semis

have you seen a fatass football player do literally anything else? not to mention half of them are literally fucking retarded, even when it comes to their own sport.

multiple fucking times in a game you see these niggers fail to throw the ball away to avoid a sack, or stay in bounds / running out to manage the clock

they are literally fucking retarded
>>
>>65028164
also...completely forgot, the defense gets to 'blitz' once every set of four downs, in which there is no mississippi count, and any amount of defenders are free to run at the QB the moment he snaps the ball
>>
>>65028170

you have never played sports so i'll break it down.

"oh shit i can shake this sack and get the pass off"

ego. sports are all ego, you fucking virgin.

>white boy logic
>>
It's the feeling of suspense. The limited play time makes the action all the more frenetic and intense once it occurs. You get the build up before the ball is snapped and other deliberations.

It's kind of a like a thriller movie as opposed to a non-stop action flick. Also, pretty comfy to watch since you don't have to train your eyes on the game the whole time and can talk to people, eat, do homework or something.

After World War 2 we had a huge influx of refugees from the parts of Europe that weren't quite white enough to get into the country before, and they effectively brought the love of the game with them. Since then it's always been really popular in their communities. More recently it's become more mainstream as poms migrate here and are white enough and in sufficient numbers to bring it into the mainstream.

No """Australians""" call it football but most of the people who actually care about the sport have called it football or fotbal or calcio or ποδόσφαιρο all their lives.

>Why is American Football more entertaining than soccer?

That's a matter of opinion tbphwyf.

I find that I can enjoy both, especially when I watch American Football on a British broadcaster that replaces ad breaks with game analysis and discussion. It's a lot easier for me to maintain interest in such circumstances, perhaps because I'm so used to switching off from a sporting spectacle once the adverts kick in.

The only thing I would say in terms of preference is that scoring feels a lot more cathartic in Association Football. I tend to get more intense emotional peaks and troughs over the course of a game for some reason.

I guess the way I'd describe it is that American Football feels like a series of quickies whereas Association Football is more like edging until intense release. Ultimately there's a lot of enjoyment to be found in both.

NFL is classic Hunter v Prey but it puts a twist on the usual cheetah chasing the gazelle theme.

Instead of Hunter v Prey

It's Hunter vs Hunter

or if theres a blocker it's

Hunter + Hunter vs Hunter or Hunters

So it's a twist on a basic instinct, now two hunters are hunting each other and another hunter can even interfere with another hunters' hunt. IE: a blocker.

SO yes it is more entertaining than any other sport. Its a hunt. With human beings.

>>65028893
Absolutely nothing but laugh.
>>
>>65028893

how is that post cancerous its what it is, if youve played it youd see that it is absolutely a hunt, on a ground level, there are people that want to stop you from getting to your prey, and you shuck them and get to your target. How is that not a fucking hunt.

Its a learned thing. Like a sever tackle is learned. If you hit someone its instinctual to rotate but instead of rotating which lets them slip free you should sink your nails into skin equipment cloth etc and hit them head on into a body part and attempt to sever them in half by applying backwards pressure on what youre hitting, not rotational. Your first few tackles will be rotational and it lets them land on you which you dont want.

you dont you yourself to be the cushion for the fall, a sever tackle lets them be your cushion and the ground to be their cushion. it reverses roles.

You jew cunt. You know fucking nothing about this game if youve only watched it.
