Some UK football fans have made very unkind statements about their American friends’ version of football. Aside from a little kicking, players in the US National Football League (NFL) generally use their hands, so why even call it football? And what’s with all the padding? The UK has rugby, which has many similarities with NFL, but without all the protection for players (which is why rugby is probably more dangerous). It’s a brave UK fan that would dare to say anything bad about the NFL to a fan, since their fans are among the most devoted in the world. And of course, US football fans can easily, and deliberately anger UK football fans, by simply calling football “soccer.” The UK fans seem to really hate that.
