First round is acceptance. I just decided to do this because I thought it would be fun. I would prefer an experienced debater.

Football is much ore popular than baseball and generates more revenue, almost 2 billion more. What makes professional athletics a success is the amount of money they earn, therefore football is better. Also, because more people like it, football is more popular and is also more succcessful by getting more people physically fit. In fact, the NFL makes the most money in the world.

"That said, in 2013, the last time the question was asked, 39% of those surveyed said football is their favorite sport to watch, while only 14% said they favor baseball."

Football is more than twice as popular.

Football is more fair than baseball because the salary cap. In baseball, the Yankees have won 27 out of 111 World Series, making baseball significantly more unfair as one team won almost a quarter of all championships, whereas the Steelers with the most in the NFL have only 6, a far lesser percentage. 6/49 is about 12 percent, so football is twice as fair.

I'll restart it, Airmax is already swamped, so there is no point, but thanks. And you are clear that we are debating about playing the actual sport itself?

I would accept this but I don't meet the requirements (if you would change them so I could, that would be great please).

Basketball will never be better than a full on contact sport. The violence is the best part.

What do you mean by "better?" Because better is much to broad.
