bet you get pretty butt hurt when someone calls soccer names
And soccer isn't stupid? It's just kicking a ball around for 90 minutes. Except for the diving and dramatic rolling around on the ground when one player breathes on another.
lol so just because real football/soccer did not designed a time outs or breaks after every 8 seconds of play so players can catch a breath and line up again against other team does not mean it is cheating. if nfl is as fluent game and who ever comes first to where ball was downed and di not wait for other team to set and play again there would be so many nfl players faking injury after every play there were few years back when rams were snaping the ball every 10 seconds and giants players were gased and start to fake injury and roll around and we are talking about sport where there is no fluidity or ball being passed around from one player to other
American football is not a fluent sport, not in anyway shape or form, and if you don't like it for that reason no worries. But that doesn't make the sport "stupid" anymore than diving or lack of scoring makes soccer "stupid".
Your numbers are wrong. 6 players (the QB and 5 more) can handle the ball, 5 players cannot. Rules about formations and things you can only do in the pocket or an amount of yards downfield can be complicated. It's also annoying if a play is ruined by one guy committing a penalty that the play would have been successful without the penalized act. That doesn't change the fact that every play is called, and that many penalties are mental errors unrelated to touching the ball or an opponent.
Going back on topic,
I think soccer (football) can learn a lot from watching film. You don't need designed plays to learn from film watching. You can learn things like player tendencies, like a player's best spot to shoot the ball, which way he's prone to run up the field with the ball or what a player's favorite place to go when he doesn't have the ball. You can learn your opponent's defensive strategy and what they're most prone to do in various scenarios.
