the huge debate football versus football fact this debate about a million times as I've came in the US and most of which have been with TYT sports panelist Ben mankiewicz because he consistently likes to rile me up but I want to talk to you guys about it joined by Michael Pablo and Damian let's get into the debate we want to talk about the sport which is known worldwide the beautiful game and in that other sport was it going in American football no my dog but anyway an unbiased opinion let's just talk about this both logically first and foremost Damian coming from the United Kingdom and in current to the United States you've had a taste of both so in your opinion what sport resonates high to me it's a very short conversation so soccer as we'll call it for you know because we're in the United States as a global sport you know in the 80s in 1983 in the UK we got our fourth television channel and it was called channel 4 we were very creative with our new great name and they were struggling for programming so they came up with a 90 minute highlight show about American football so 45 minutes was this is this is the game of the week and they'd stop it and they'd they'd teach you the game you know this is how the game works etcetera this was a golden age this was William Perry Joe Montana Dan Marino it was it was pretty cool so my dad and I would watch it and it was our Wonder Years sitting on the couch we'd watch this right we got really into it the sport actually gained in popularity then they made a horrendous mistake they showed the Super Bowl live so we set up to watch the Super Bowl and two hours in we're going what on earth is this yeah this isn't a sport this is this is essentially a performance that's put on there's actors in it you know we were used to seeing American women in shoulder pads and tights we didn't expect to see the men were in the same thing well and the sport just plummeted in the UK and I think it's so American sport and I actually by the way these are the best athletes in the world I believe but but I don't I don't think the to compare us as a sport I think it's a performance American football I think it has its place it's so uniquely American that it doesn't translate anywhere else I think that it's first of all anytime you have the best athletes and I think some American football players are the best athletes competing against each other then that then it's clearly defined as a sport but I think you know my philosophy with all of this is that if you get people playing the game then you'll appreciate the sport more the the National Hockey League just to go back to my favorite sport that they put teams in Columbus Ohio in Atlanta and Tampa and Miami and they didn't build rinks for kids to play they just put a team there and unless they built if I was the Commissioner of the NHL I would have built rinks all over the country get kids playing sponsor that take a little loss at the beginning have it be a lost leader American football is never gonna translate until it's played in these in these sports it is a stop go sport it is it is 14 seconds of action interrupted by two and a half minutes of delay all the time and that's just that's a problem with watching football it's probably why you're you and your dad we're we're so frustrated watching the Super the Super Bowl is not indicative of what a Sunday a good American Sunday's is like that being said you know I happen to think it's a it's a better sport because I grew up watching it didn't grow up watching soccer we'll call it soccer because that's what it's called and and you know and by the way any any time a sport can be nicknamed footy it's not the toughest mess but but I you know I see the arguments for it because the the conditioning the the competition the closeness the fact that their international sides I'll give you that playing one another that doesn't exist in football but it is so uniquely American that I think it shows so much about in microcosmic ways about what our country is so I think it's a stronger sport but I think like you said it has everything to do with the fact of where I grew up what I grew up playing a while well Americans love football because they're the best at football why has baseball gone down because Americans are no longer the best that baseball the best baseball players are not mostly Latino so another sport has dropped in popularity they love American football because other countries cannot beat us in American football now I'm weird perspective here because I'm from Argentina but I moved to Miami in 1983 there was a guy named Dan Marino playing for the Miami Dolphins so I became the biggest Dolphins fan biggest American football fan I still love the sport my argument with you you're saying they should build drinks to bring the popularity of hockey well that proves why soccer is the best game in the world because you don't need rinks you know you don't even need basketball rings you need leagues in order to get Americans to play soccer that's what happened when they come over yes something it existed in community any kids in Brazil just like basketball soccer balls in play that's awesome about that's absolutely true but you have to organize it in order in order to have kids play soccer you have to organize a so on the field but in the United States I'm talking about gaining popularity here in order you have to give people incentive to do it and and yes you can go out in the field and kick a ball around but you're not watching professional athletes do it you're not cultivating that sport here the way football is done you can go out and pretend you're Dan Marino right or Joe Montana or you know William Perry who just got you know who clumped in a great group of people by you and he was first so the proper English really impaired guy that number 72 for the Bears Perry I'm gonna actually surprise a few people because I think it's almost an unfair argument right because in the United Kingdom we live and breathe the sport you had the brought up playing football or you're not and people will make an argument or I play cricket and I play rugby but that's not it is true but it's just not even in comparison it's not like basketball baseball football hockey then soccer yeah because these sports just don't they don't matter enough to the people of this culture we are grown up to just watch it we can recap my mom knows more about soccer than any probably American athlete knows about soccer even if you've watched it because she's just been around it right so to make the argument I as much as I would love to sit here and say that soccer is a better sport because it's worldwide and it's renowned it's almost unfair because you are grown up in the United States to watch a sport for a certain view a certain number of months you're not grown up to live and breathe it because this months will you'll put off from it and that's what that's what my problem comes from the NFL that's what everyone else's problem comes from the NFL mutase when the season ends its value finite right if the problem that furthers that is therefore major sports here yes exactly some will argue that there are three but I'm gonna include but the the the the the that you can move on to the next thing football ends and watch Twitter and everybody's saying oh pitchers and catchers report in 27 days fantastic yeah and that's a big problem for me and we could get into no debate about it which I love to talk about is why the soccer is not as big and it's not growing I mean it's it is growing but what is helping it grow it is the International drawing show and it's the World Cup and it's the Premier League and I think it's also attention spans yes because people here in this country I've always said soccer so boring it's the longest game 90 minutes played in the shortest amount of time there's no commercial breaks it's hardly any time I was like oh he's on the ground he's he's faking it for like 10 seconds hey and if others commercials every two seconds maybe a there's a timeout finally coming around to noticing that soccer is a quick game non-stop yeah I don't think there's a problem with American football being uniquely American I think the fact that it is a slice of American life is great but I think when people try and talk of it as a pure sport is it's not at all it's the most manufactured sport that there is and we should except for you know we live in the land of Hollywood it is the manufactured game that there is I mean certainly the best marketed game but even the set up of it you know this deflategate thing that took place which was you know okay so you have your balls and we have ours and you can really do with them what you want but but don't cheat dollars of play but don't cheat it's like putting a three-year-old in a room with a bar of chocolate and saying don't eat that and expecting them not to eat it yeah I don't have a problem with them changing the balls whatever it may be but let's just accept that it's a performance sport yes it's not like a pure sort of mano-a-mano combat that I think at times it can be settled to me I would say it's more mano a mano than you're giving the credit I feel like I'm defending football and there's a lot to criticize about the way the league is run etcetera and they certainly had a terrible year but they've also marketed well I mean everybody pays attention now they cover this thing called the combine and I don't know if you know what the yeah it's absurd it's it we're watch it right and then there's a draft is a prime times though it's now moving city to city because of fantasy by the way yeah guilty of watching it you know I you know and and so but I do think that there it is you know that it's okay for it to be uniquely American and I do think that you know I that they've sold out a lot and they've they've sort of made it a little bit more antiseptic than it ever was there was a time when it was a little bit more mano a mano and you know and even your argument is great about the the patience and yeah soccer is over like that when you even though it's 45 minute halves it's don't think that football has there's only one NFL league there's only 30 teams soccer there's some bad soccer being played all around the world yeah people watch the Real Madrid's the Barcelona's but if you watch like division two from Colombia it's not gonna be a good game NFL there's only 30 teams now wife for the god sakes why do we keep sending the worst teams to play in England the Jaguars go to England the Raiders go to England and you guys are selling out Wembley so it shows there still love for the sport and by the way the reason the reason they're sending the worst teams is because the worst teams are the most likely to relocate when they put a franchise in London which I think they will soon yeah I don't think it would be a disaster I think I'd be a good idea yeah so they'd have to work out the travel schedules for right their schedules and we understand like from a world basis the the soccer is incomparable and it's never going to be comparable I don't think whilst in my generation and in my lifetime however I live in the United States now and it continually frustrates me because you try to adapt the same structure you take for baseball football and NBA into soccer or football having playoffs having combines having drafts you don't need that Lionel Messi is the best footballer potentially they've ever graced the game you know he's gonna run and jump and lift weights the way an athlete he's supposed to in the soccer industry here in the United States I got invited a couple of combines and I think I turned out for about five minutes I was like you want me to lift that and jump that way I can get the ball put it in the back the net that's what's important to this game and the problem is is there is no competition other than going for that title like you go for the the first-place team like in the MLS and that's it there's no relegation battle there's no fight to go up relegation was great in some that week so that's really needs to be done and I'm afraid that because the reason why soccer still doesn't gain that popularity is because it's still classified as one of these American sports when it is an international sport and in order for it to grow you need to take the international perspective have relegation a bottle of relegation and all those plenty of teams I was involved with the NFL is what they were talking about which is that if you relegate a team in the NFL who are they gonna play again exactly get back in so there's a I mean yes MBA potentially I don't think the NFL you willing to change HL whatever relegation as well because there are minor league teams all over Canada in the United States do you think it would work for the NHL them is that yeah it would work for the NHL to do that but you let's say you relegate a team right and then you lose let's say the st. Louis Blues don't make it an example right right there's too much money in TV writers that they have a big stadium that they fill all the time that they wouldn't if they were playing against Binghamton you know that's no problem but back to the argument which is the better game I like football are football soccer because China can play against the u.s. they can play against Argentina they can play against England and there's not that much size discrepancy NFL American football there's 300-pound guys how many countries in this world have 300-pound offensive lineman you know six foot seven linebackers the defensive ends that can run a 4-3 one country that's it Samoa yeah it's like 50% of some morons make it college football teams and the NFL it's amazing all right guys great argument again we want to continue the debate to our viewers out there make sure to leave your comments in this section below let us know what you guys think make sure to check out all of our amazing panelists here and subscribe to TYT sports

    i may tell you something that seams silly and obvious but you never thought about it , the difference between Footbal and american futbol , is that we play soccer for fun as a hobby , bunch of guys bring a ball find some open space and just play , anyone can play footbal , we also play it for fun not at a club or at school it's just what we do in weekend to have fun , while American football is meant to be played at school or at a sport club with coaches referees and proper equipements or some people would be really hurt xD we play football on dirt , or gravel or asphalt ….

    Ima just put this out there. In my opinion american football is better because it teaches selfishness,hard work, and team work the most. Of course soccer is a team sport to that requires teamwork. But theres always people like messi. In football you NEED 11 players doing there jobs so that wide out can score a touch down or so the running back can break one up the middle. No matter what you think even the greatest athlete couldnt play football by themselves. Thats what makes it better.

    This isn't even a debate in my opinion. I'm going to place this in all caps for all to see. WE HAVE OUR FOOTBALL, YOU HAVE YOURS. We (most of us) don't give a fuck about SOCCER (even though by default we would still root for the U.S.A. teams) and we know you don't give a fuck about our football. Why the fuck do we have to compare them? Personally I find soccer less interesting but I know it's more skill based but I just prefer American football cause it's what I grew up on. Oh and for all the morons talking about view numbers on the Super Bowl or the CFB National Championship (and college is better then the NFL in my opinion) vs the World Cup games, has it never occurred to you idiots that you're comparing a game only popular in one country to a game popular internationally? Just saying. Watch and play what you enjoy no matter where you're from. You don't always have to compare shit and nobody gives a fuck which one you like. Also it would probably help if both sides learned more about the other. The amount of strategy that goes into American college and pro football would surprise some soccer fans and vice versa.

    Football is a sport played by men who served their country and are inhumanly strong
    Soccer is played by boys who cry and whine after getting touched

    The reason soccer is just boring that’s why I stopped watching it and football is more entertaining when you are under standing it plus I hate it when you touch someone in soccer they act like if they broke there bone and in football players break there arms or legs and they aren’t dramatic like soccer players
