Do we really need to have this debate?
There are fans who enjoy American Style Tackle Football and others who enjoy the game of futbol played on the pitch. Then there is a handful of us who enjoy both, with no favorite of one over the other.
Either way, we as fans have formed some type of bond/connection with the sport, with some teams and players along the way and thus we become fiercly loyal.
Do we need to trash another sport to make ourselves feel good about our sport?
Again, I happen to love both sports...I also enjoy Basketball, Baseball and Hockey.
I don't care for NASCAR, Golf or Curling...but you know what, if it's competitive, chances are I'll be watching.
So let's close by acknowledging that each sport has it's positives and negatives, and for each of us as fans, we enjoy or prefer certain sports for our own specific reasons.
I hope that Football spreads across the globe, while I hope the Soccer grows in popularity in the USA!!!
