Damn! No one mentioned Pele'! Are you all too young?

As for real football, maybe I would nominate "Sweetness!" If you don't know who he was then you really deserve soccer!

And, the main difference in American Football and Footbol/bul, is that the real man on man fights start in the stands in Soccer, and on the field in Football! Laugh!

Right now the team of my city Lech Poznan is first in group A in European Leage, over Manchester City - probably the richest club in the world at the moment and Juventus.
 
 
My favourite players are:
 
Rudnevs who scored 3 goals in the game vs Juventus
 
 
 
 
And Mozdzen, for his goal in the game versus Manchester City which ended with victory 3:1

Yeah, all those fools in body armour, thats the joke not real men. Real men play soccer and often suffer very dangerous injuries, not like beefcakes protected by armour in this what you call american football...

You really think there's a greater chance of suffering a serious injury playing soccer as opposed to American football??? There's a reason they have to wear all that protection...

I think to the best  actually player is Messi, but i love Nasri. His two goals against Fulham are very wonderful, his absence against the Brazil tonight it's very pity.
 
In the history several players were very incredible same Pele, Maradonna, Cruyff or Zidane. It's impossible to make a choice.

Mosquito my friend, whenever you trash the US as well as American manhood, I strongly suggest you at least know something about the subject.  Soccer being nothing more than a bunch of little boys running around in funny looking shorts.
That's as intelligent as your response to Opus.  Particularly when he was refferring to the fans, not the players.  Or was that your intent? Can't bring up the subject of Soccer Hooligans now can we?

I like soccer, I like Football, I like Rugby
I have played all 3
 
Of the three American Football is the hardest to play.
 
I don't think Americans like soccer, becuase all and all it is slow paced, doesn't play well on TV (great in person, much like Hockey) and often one team can be completley dominant and lose. Also the calls by the stripes are very subjective.
 
As for Soccer--Wayne Rooney becuase he plays like a man. physical and aggresive, most players in the EU play like dancers afraid to mix it up. Thats why I  prefer the Brits in soccer they play like men. It seems in the German league they play too fine and try to be pretty this is esp true in the Spanish teams.
 
As for Real Football--Past "Samurai" Mike Singletary and Gary "Hitman" Fencik

Trashing AMerican manhood ?!? OK you are from Poland, a fine country but not exactly a powerhouse in anything now or ever. But a fince country and home to one of the greatest men of the 20th century Blessed Pope John PaulII. But not really a hotbead of athletic prowess.
 
The painfull truth is this, if America actually cared about Soccer, and our best or even average athletes played the game (Football, Basketball, Hockey and Baseball as well as Track and even wrestling gets better athletes) really Soccer get our 3rd tier jocks. Even with that we did well in the world cup (better than Poland). Imagine if Soccer got our best, I really doubt any country could compete with the US.
 
In HS this is the rank of sports as by kids playing them:
1. Baseball
2. Football
3. Basketball
4. Wrestling
5. Track and F
6. Soccer
7. cross country
 
In womens sport Soccer does get our best and the US women are one the best teams in the world.

I think the most talented player ever is George Best. The best club players ever are Ryan Giggs and paolo maldini, because of how long they played, who they played for and what they have won. Pele, Zidane, Ronaldo are the best ever international players. But my top 5 of the best overall player would be 1 Zidane, 2 Maradona, 3 Cruyff, Charlton, Best. I must say I like the thread.

Well, the thread title says Favorite Football Player.  Okay, so that would be-
 
Charles "Chuck" Phillip Bednarik, AKA- Concrete Charlie, AKA- the Last Gladiator.
 
Chuck Bednarik was the last man in the NFL to play on both Offense and defense.  Or as they call him in Phila. The last 60 min. man.  He played both Linebacker and center.
 
                                
 
This is the classic photo of Bednarik standing on Franklin Field, in the NFL title game 1960.  He was waiting for the defense to come on.
 
                                 
 
This is the photo that most remember him by, esp. by Giants fans. Big smile The Giants had a clear shot at the Championship [before the Super Bowl] until they ran into the Eagles and old "Charlie the Clutch".  The unconcious player laying prone is Frank Gifford, Giants running back.  He was out of football for a year following this tackle.  Which was ruled legal and clean.
 
You want to talk real men?

Did this guy with 5 different names play middle or outside linebacker. Was he the player who snaped the ball when he played at centre.
 
Why do you North American's always have to go against the rest of the world. when your talking other north American's then you can call American football, football. But when your talking to people from other parts of the world just call it American football. But insted you force your crap game on the world every year with the super bowl. Give me barca vs real any day

I didn't say anything in a derogatory or disrespectful manner.  Why are you?  You want me to answer you after that?

If we're talking American football, my favorite player is Jerry "Jesus In Cleats" Rice.

That statement's as flawed as your spelling. (Even after editing!Wink)

Rice already had all the receiving records halfway through his career. He also held almost every single season record. Not sure what career longevity would have to do with that. Not to mention the fact that he played at such a high level for so long (his last year being his only down year) points to his greatness. There really isn't any other player that is UNANIMOUSLY considered to be the greatest at his position.
