I'm not trying to be rude, but I never actually got into football. The last football game I watch but do you just like watching people tackling each other

football is really fun man you just got to get into it and actually understand like what's going on with everything and once you do you you start to notice the crazy things that go down in the games and you'll like it

Im on the same boat as you in terms of American football. I dont understand why people tackling eachother is entertaining to people. Whereas real footaball requires so much more than just strength

football is pretty much the same thing as futball but involves more pausing, short high powered sprints, passing, tackling, blocking and so much more, it isn't just jukes and sprinting and kicking (which football has too)

You sound incredibly ignorant. Tell me how "football" or "soccer" requires more than american football. Not everyone in american football is 350 pounds. You have offensive lineman and defensive lineman, yeah, but those are the only real positions that require strength. Linebackers, depending on scheme, mainly need to have speed and strength but only enough to tackle the running back, for example, or in a certain scheme, being like a defensive lineman and going for the QB, lining up against offensive lineman. Or, there's a linebacker that requires speed and strength (less, really) in order to cover tight ends/wide receivers. So there's different type of linebackers. If you really want more, there's wide receivers and cornerbacks who are basically contrary to wide receivers and require insane speed, technique and knowledge of what route a wide receiver is actually running if you're a cornerback. American football isn't "mainly" a game of strength at all. If you actually got into it, you'd see it's mostly strategy and intelligence with tons of other stuff mixed in.

I'd like to see you give an in depth of what more european football players do compared to american football players. Because what I just listed is the tip of the iceberg.

Well there's a lot of culture and rivalry around it. It's not just about tackling, there is definitely skill involved. It's entertaining to watch. There's not much more too it then that lol
