23 Reasons You Should Never Watch American Football

Let Britain show you how real football is done.

3. You see, American football just doesn't have the same history as the REAL version of football, which is based on rules from the 19th century.

But you know what they say about Americans and history...

5. American football players wear so much padding. Padding on their ass, padding on their shoulders, padding in their helmet, padding on the posts...

Try playing with just a pair of shin pads, lads.

6. And the coaches always seem to be angry middle-aged men in tracksuits shouting from the sidelines.

7. You're obsessed with winning trophies – what's the deal, why do you care so much? It's just a piece of metal in the shape of a rugby ball.

In our version of football we just play for fun, we don't really care about trophies to be honest. It's all about good sportsmanship and British politeness.

8. You're always talking about how it's this "collision sport", but we all know which "football" the real heroes play.
