The battle of the ballers: Football vs football

THE BATTLE OF THE BALLERS FOOTBALL VS. FOOTBALL With the battle for the top of the Premiership at a close with Manchester United coming out on top we thought we'd compare our beautiful game with its namesake across the Pond. We don't need to tell you how football earned its name, but we still have questions as to why American football is referred to as such - given the fact that feet play only a small part of the game. With this in mind, we decided to compare each sport's biggest leagues. BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE VS ESTABLISHED 1992 (split from the Football League, established in 1888) 1920 NUMBER OF CLUBS 20 32 GAMES PER SEASON 00000 00000 00000 38 16 9 months LENGTH OF SEASON 5 months SEPTEMBER OCTOBER NOVEMBER DECEMBER JANUARY FEBRUARY AUGUST SEPTEMBER OCTOBER NOVEMBER DECEMBER JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH APRIL MAY 38,517 82,566 AVERAGE STADIUM CAPACITY 2010-2011 Avełage attendance: 35,180 (91%) 2010-2011 Average attendance: 66,960 (81%) Old Trafford LARGEST STADIUM Cowboys Stadium Manchester United: 75,957 Dallas Cowboys: expandable to 110,000 The Barclays Premiership Trophy TROPHY Vince Lombardi Trophy CLUB WITH MOST WORLD TITLES Green Bay Packers: 13 Manchester United: 12 пи WHICH SPORT IS MORE EXCITING?

This is because they have more money to buy the world's best players. Each season, teams pick the best college players in a system known as "the draft" But the team that wins the Superbowl and lifts the Vincent Lombardi Trophy has last pick of the college players. Whereas the team that has come bottom of the league, gets first pick of the college players. This system is aimed at evening the game out and making it more competitive as each of the 32 clubs has a chance at the top spot. %3D HIGHEST EARNING PLAYERS Wayne Rooney Manchester United Peyton Manning - Indianapolis Colts £ 12 mil £9.8 mil Frank Lampard - Chelsea Nnamdi Asomugha - Oakland Raiders £ 10,5 mil £8.8 mil John Terry - Chelsea Donovan McNabb – Washington Redskins £79 mil £7.1 mil PLAYERS OF THE YEAR Gareth Bale Tom Brady (Offensive) BRADY Tottenham Hotspur 12 New England Patriots BALE 3 Troy Polamalu (Defensive) POLAMALU 43 Pittsburgh Steelers Sources:,,,, pod
