“So you think that rugby and American football are similar by coincidence? NOOB!”
Long time before Jesus was born, young Greek came with invention of brand new sport that would be played in teams around the world. Well, in his mind the world was just Greece and some nearby barbarian countries.
In his dreams, this brave young man was watching training of two oiled and naked pankrationists (that was some kind of wrestling contested by two naked and oiled faggots), when he came to an incredible idea: Why they are attacking each other without any reason other that wishing for touching opponent's penis?. The he excogitated that they could fight for something that they could actually hold without hurting enemy. This young man, named Gridiron didn't know that his faboulous idea will have so big impact on the world. Yes, he actually gave start to bunch of sports using codes of Gridiron football, named after inventor.
He saw that pankrationists have been holding opponent's genitalia, including balls of course. This behaviour led to severe injuries, so sport was not so popular. This young man idea was: They should fight for bigger, leather-made ball! And then he went to his house, killed his dog, and made an oval-shaped ball. Why oval? Just because I couldn't make it round said young man.
He backed to pankrationists and gave them the ball. They took it and started to fight keeping it. Other people watching their practice were impressed and bit confused. Why they attack ball and not each other? they were asking. Because they were behaving like poofters trying to put penises into opponent's ass, and now they can fight for ball and this one who will take the ball from enemy will win!.
Then every man from the crowd puts out his long white dress, and after quick oiling joined the game. Players quickly divided between beardless and bearded to not make any confusion while playing. That was very first match of sport very similar to American football or rather rugby as they played without pads and helmets. According to historical sources, Beardless won 7:0.
Spreading sport around the Greece
Every player participated in game quickly spread news about brand new game for everyone. And that really messed everything. All known philosophers started to deliberate if chasing naked for leather ball has any sense? Stoics standed on opinion that it's complete bullshit and they do not want hear about that. Instead they proposed contest of cutting veins for time. But epicureanists stated that you have to do everything you need to be happy. Therefore they thought it's great idea to join sport, fun and sex in one activity. Cynics didn't present their opinion but instead they said Pff, nobody cares, it won't be popular in world; everyone will forget.
Ironically, nobody forgot and everyone cared about it. In different parts of Greece different teams created, unfortunately, all with different codes. Some stated that players should wear leather pads and metal helmets while playing to protect from injuries, other said that they should just play not oiled and not naked to avoid gayish situations, and others siad that it's perfectly legal to put penis into opponent's ass.
Different leagues born and sport was popular in Greece for over few centuries but International Olympic Committee stated that sport is not played by enough people, does not have unitary codes and is also very gayish. Therefore it has never been played in Ancient Olympic Games.
Sport has been forgotten
Sport has been forgotten because I.O.C. was intentionally ignoring it. And as we know, every sport ignored by I.O.C. eventually dies after long agony. Instead of playing sport Greeks preferred to have sex with small children or fighting with Romans for independence.
Reborn of ancient sport
But evidence of playing Gridiron football survived and was found by archeologists in XIX century. Intrugued by rules of sport, they sent it to England and that's how rugby really has been created (but all Englishmen will deny any connection between rugby and football, even Gridiron one, and they treat gridiron word as offense to American football).
Gridiron football also gave birth to American, Australian and Canadian football. Though nobody todays remembers about smart young Greek Gridiron, hence name of codes of those sports are called today gridiron football not Gridiron forgetting that in fact, it was name of its inventor.
By the way, I still think you are a noob.
