To each their own, I say. While highly refined skills are the hallmark in professional soccer games, and very much so outside of the US, there admittedly is, in both college and professional football, much discipline, precision and more of a physicality that the sport's coverages enhance. Further, fans of the college version enjoy the considerable sense of belonging while professionals offer an increased explosiveness. And yet, if a digression is allowed, few seem to have given much thought to the fact that - except where 'points-after,' 'field-goals' and 'kick-offs' are concerned - there is, during an ordinary 'football' game, little that brings the players' feet in contact with the ball (which consideration is more readily apparent in the base-and-ball and basket-to-ball in brother sports, including the sport also commonly known as 'soccer,' where foot-to-ball contact - head-to-ball, also - is the wherewithal of the game).

For a long time I preferred soccer over football. But now its about an even split.

Soccer, but I don't understand American football. My colleagues have told me in beerier moments that there really is more to an American football game than a series of high intensity scrambles by Michelin men, punctuated by frequent commercials. Not yet convinced, but I have agreed to give it a whirl every other Monday in the bar with drinks.

Oh come on--no contest. Soccer is just the metric system in short pants.

Can't compare these two sports - the differences are just too extreme. However, if I had a gun to my head I'd have to pick soccer.

Football is great but you can't truly play the game (read that - full contact) without pads. In the military, our weekend pickup games inevitably resulted in several bloodied faces and a broken bone or two.

Soccer, when played the North American way (read that - minus the pansy diving and bitching) is still an intense, physical game. It's certainly easier to play, just need a ball (or reasonable facsimile) and some feet - shoes are optional.

I'll take my gridiron over the world's favorite sport. Football is more strategic than those who have marginalized it as meathead territory would admit.

Actually, outside America, soccer is football! It is, after all, a game about manipulating the ball with one's feet! In an athletic context, I far prefer real football to the rather odd version of rugby the colonials concocted with funny helmets and pom-pom wielding women on the sidelines. There's much more emphasis on precision and less emphasis on brute force in real football (well, in theory, at least).

Aesthetically though, the Americans definitely have the right idea. It is, admittedly, far nicer to look at cute cheerleaders merrily jumping about on the sidelines than Sven Goran Erikkson anxiously furrowing his brow.

How can you compare a barbaric activity like football to an art like soccer?
Soccer is way more sublte, and aesthetically pleasing. A ball flying slowly through the air, a keeper standing there paralyzed, seeing the ball go into his goal.That is beauty. The game might be decided by penalties. That is excitement. It's your country playing another country. That is passion.
Thank God for soccer! The only good substitute for war.

That's like asking someone to choose between anaesthesia and a sledge hammer.
