    Because they can't stomach the awful truth that the only excuse to call plastic rugby men in tights football was to call a rugby thing a football.Boneheaded clumsy lumps are also liars.

    Somewhat because they are not familiar with it, and it is slower with less coordination in its play. Football is very complex in both strategy and execution.

      That's easy! No forward passing. When executed properlly, the forward pass in American Football is the most beautiful thing in all of sports! There's just nothing that even come close. Except maybe a kickoff return for a TD.

    Where do you get such odd information? Did you survey one drunk guy at a bar during the super bowl?

      USA Rugby lists 125,000 registered players and that's only about half of all players.

    No forward pass.

    Most likely a variety of cultural reasons. But I would suspect it is also because there are no big money networks promoting it. Why doesn't Europe like baseball?

    It's okay but football players are bigger, stronger, and faster.

      Stronger? Debatable, considering all of the protective gear they wear.
