With the two sports in question, there are many differences with the sports. one, American football is a lot more physical and aggressive which makes you have a higher risk to injury. two, American football has many many more details to the sport with techniques of offenses and defenses, etc. Soccer isn't as fun to watch to many people, plus you can only do so much with a ball kicking it around towards a goal.

Yes, soccer is the most played sport in the world and therefore probably the most popular with the most people playing the game too. however, there is still the fact i stated earlier that anyone who knows anything about american football knows to be true; American football has much more to the game than soccer does. soccer has some fancy tricks and such but there is only so much strategy and technique and all that that can go into such a simple game.

It would be nice to debate this topic with someone who would actually post an argument with some knowledge on this topic.

This argument can be withheld on two different fronts. If you are taking a look at the world stage Soccer would have to be the more popular and therefore better sport. This sport brings together each nationality and allows each to compete for a World Champion every four years (The World Cup). On a global scale Soccer is the only sport played generally everywhere. However, if you close the window of geography and just take a look at the United States, American Football would have to be more popular an therefore the better sport. Americans, being one of he most ethnocentric people groups, take pride in the fact that it is "our" game. It is titled "American Football" isn't it? Because of the physical aspect of American Football is seen as more "manly" and if you play or support this sport you are more of man. When it comes down to the actual games themselves, neither is more important than the other. It all depends on the viewer and what he/she enjoys watching. If they like a more suspense filled game, soccer is more enjoyable than football. But if the viewer enjoys a more fast paced, high scoring game then football is better than soccer. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. No sport is superior to another because of the concepts and rules. Popularity is the only true determiner of which sport is viewed as "better" at a certain time in a certain place.

How dare you sir! if I had gloves that could travel through the internet I would slap you in the face with them and challenge you to pistols at dawn.

Soccer is a dull silly game football is the ultimate team sport.

but for realz, if you define what you mean by "better" I am very interested in debating this.
