What Are the Differences Between American Football VS Rugby Ball?

The difference between American football ball and rugby ball is obviously the cultural difference between America and Britain. 


1. The development of American football ball and rugby ball


Rugby ball is basically the most primitive. It's not supported by advanced technology, and it doesn't need armors. Athletes wear the clothes of football clothes rather than protective clothes, so it's called soft rugby.


Rugby is spreading widely, and currently, more than 140 countries and areas develop this project. Compared with that, American rugby ball develops from rugby, and it's a unique variation on the game of rugby adapting the unique American culture. Most players of American football are Americans. It's also called hard football because the players must wear the required clothes and protective clothes.


In addition, compared with rugby, American football is smaller and easy to pass. In general, rugby uses number 5 balls, while American football size 9.


2. Competition rules of American football ball and rugby ball


Then, during the competition, rugby is the mobile warfare, and players run and coordinate. They can pass balls infinitely, and they kick forward together. However, American football is positional warfare. Each player is responsible for their own position, and they can only pass forward once in an attack, yard by yard. Rugby focus more on teamwork, it mainly requires players to cooperate with each other to pass the ball. Players are not allowed to pass balls forward directly, and they must pass the ball to the teammate in the back position, or it's deemed offside. American football is played by a quarterback throwing the ball, a running back, and a wide receiver. The ball keeps moving forward most of the time.


As a result, we can conclude that rugby emphasizes flexibility and highlights smart vision, mind, body, and teamwork. It has a light physical confrontation, and it's suitable for Asians, suitable for both males and females. However, American football is very confrontational. It mainly depends on impact, and it emphasizes the size of the body, physical power, and strength, so it's suitable for the European and United States population, especially males.


Europeans with a cultural superiority comment American football ball and rugby ball: Rugby is the brutal movement of gentlemen, while American football is the brutal movement of barbarians.


However, to be fair, American football develops from rugby, and it's a unique variation on the game of rugby adapting the unique American culture. None of them is higher or lower, people from different countries and cultures will have different opinions.


It's worth mentioning that rugby is more suitable for children and adolescents than American football. Rugby can not only build the physical power, will, and teamwork of children, but also help children to be admitted by a good school.
