Football vs Football (Soccer) - Which is Better?



Football vs. Football vs. Soccer vs. American Football vs. Futbol vs. Gridiron.

These two sports have the same name but they’re completely different games. One is played mostly with the "feet" and the other mostly with the "hands".  Either way, the fans generally think their sport is better. I think we've got a case of Fan Rivalry!

Let's find out which sport wins the Mad Cow Showdown!  For the sake of clarity, we'll call them NFL and Soccer.  Let's go!

THE NAME "FOOTBALL"

Soccer: Played exclusively with the feet and the ball.
