Yeah, it's funny how the game you grow up with is generally the one you understand and appreciate more.  Rugby and AFL are more like soccer in that there is less structure and more action/fluidity.  American/Canadian football is far more rigid and structured.  The format of starting a play that lasts for maybe 10 seconds vs moving the ball around the field and getting into position to score is the biggest difference.

There are lots of other sports that have a format more like soccer and rugby, so I think American style football is more of the oddball.  Interesting note, to many Americans the most attractive component of the sport is the violence.
Why is it so?
