TALE OF THE TAPE

Tale of the Tape: Football vs Futbol

Some say ‘it’s the most popular sport in the world’ when talking about Futbol (aka Soccer). But many other argue that Football (the American NFL version) is hands down the best type of ‘football’ the world has ever known. We put the two against each other…

 

 

Football
Futbol (aka Soccer)
Super Bowl XLVIII - Seattle Seahawks v Denver Broncos
Chile v Australia: Group B - 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil
Team Names / Mascots
Winner Football teams have a pretty simple say of deciding names, usually tied to an industry in the city, some type of local animal, or an assumed theme of what kind of 'character' might live in the area.
Usually involves some type of dragon or mythical beast, a beer or union.
The BIG Game
Super Bowl: A playoff system that leads to one final game - possibly held at a city that could be in New Jersey?
Winner World Cup - a playoff system that happens in one country and a final winner with an international audience.
Final Score
Winner After spending all that time on the field there has to be a clear winner. No games should ever end in a tie!
90 minutes and the score can be 0-1? or even 0-0?
Fans
Football fans can range from beer swilling, costume wearing nut-jobs to wine and cheese lovers who sit on their hands through the entire game
Winner Soccer fans are almost always on their feet, moving, possibly drunk and always making noise.
Injuries / Badassness
Winner Football players used to be badass; playing with broken fingers, bruised and bloody. Now they hit the locker room if they get a hangnail. But football players on average are solid and mean.
If the NBA ever wants to learn the finer points of 'flopping' just watch a soccer match. These pansies will hit the ground screaming and crying if you look at them wrong.
