Best Answer

It's doubtful. American football -- or the National Football League -- is by far the most popular sport in the nation. On February 7, 2010, the NFL Championship Game -- also known as the Super Bowl -- was the most-watched program in the history of American television.

Football -- also known as soccer -- is becoming more popular in America, and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa certainly drew interest here. But American football should remain supreme for years to come.

Depends on which football you're referring to; if you mean gridiron the yes, that was invented in America, but if you meant football (soccer), then no, this was invented in England.

No it is not since you use your HANDS for transporting the ball to a goal and and balls are by definition, a sphere or spherical object; american football balls are NOT spherical.
