"if you are talking about AFL football then Afl is older then soccer

The first game if soccer was played in 1872, November 30th

The first game of football was played in 1858, August 7th"

WRONG. The dates are right, officially, but the actual game of Association Football (Soccer) is far older, the OFFICIAL rules were made during this period; and although the first official game of American Football was played "first", American Football is actually a VARIATION of Association Football AND Rugby Football. So how can it be OLDER if it's based on Association Football? Foolish child.
