No matter what anyone says, we all know that football is America's favorite past time now and it far better than baseball.

10. The Sunday/Monday Night Aura

In direct opposition to the “every day of the week” idea is football’s place on Sunday and Monday (night). After all, besides a worship service – what could be more relevant than watching football on Sunday afternoon? The same certainly bodes for Monday Night Football.

Baseball cannot compare to the event that is present on the typical days of football. Add in Thanksgiving football games and you have quite the argument.


9. Athleticism

As a general rule, football is a more athletic sport. The range and demand of strength, speed, agility, and overall athleticism is more relevant in football than in baseball.

Add in toughness and you have a nod to football for its players. Exceptions are present, but football players are more athletic than baseball players – as the sport demands.

8. The Clock

The clock in football does a number of things that baseball cannot argue with in these comparisons. Sure it speeds up the game and provides a few outlining advantages, but what about what it adds to strategy in football?

This is the most impactful advantage in football with respect to the clock. The two-minute offense, time of possession, and other aspects that only the clock provides allows for a distinct advantage for football.


1. America’s #1 Sport

Numbers, including attendance and revenue – but clearly seen in terms of television viewers – do not lie. Football is America’s number one sport, overtaking baseball: America’s pastime.

In the United States football has boomed over the last several years/decades, manifesting on television, in high school and college, and seen as the NFL overcomes the MLB/NBA in popularity.

This final reason is an interesting counter to baseball (America’s pastime), creating a tight race for which sport is truly better. Of course, context and subjectivity will label the best sport between football and baseball.
