Introduction[edit]

This article is necessary, in my opinion, to give a backgroud to the differences in Rugby Football and Association Footbal (Soccer). Please help to expand it.

Argument to Keep[edit]

This article is a precursure to Mediæval football. Mediæval football developed from Mob Football, not the other way around, if anything Mediæval football should be integrated into the Mob Football article.

I think this should be merged into the Mediæval football article with a redirect from here. There is barely any content here, so it's ridiculous to suggest that the reverse should occur. Grant65 | Talk 13:27, 15 June 2006 (UTC)
It might seem ridiculous but, the fact is that if you go in accordance to a historical timeline, mob football comes first and Mediæval Football is a spinoff or developement of the game of mob football. So, how about we leave it alone. Let the small, unoffensive mob football article stand, and let the mediævalarticle stand...and maybe we can crossreference.Rowlan 15:28, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
Not all medieval games were "mob football", e.g. Calcio Fiorentino. What is your source for the claim that medieval football is a "spinoff" or development"? As far as I can see they occurred in exactly the same period, or mob football is merely one variety of medieval football. Grant65 | Talk 04:39, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
Okay. I do see your point, my argument hasn't been well referenced. So here's my thoughts after reading both articles and the article Football as well as outside sources such as info from Fifa's website which I have now added into the Mob Football article. Mediæval Football, to me, seems to be more of a reference of Football being played during this time period. If one were to say "modern football" we would think of the modern varieties that are played today: association (soccer), rugby union, rugby league, aussie rules, gaelic, american and canadian. When we think of Mediæval Football we must then list the types of the game (or varities of the game) that were being played during that time, such as Calcio Fiorentino and Mob Football. I therefore think that both Calcio Fiorentino and Mob football deserve their own articles just as rugby, soccer and american football deserve theirs. In my estimation the characteristics of Mob Football are what really inspire the more violent forms of the sport today. On the other hand it is also what dictates the more ruly versions such as association football. So, I think it should stay, obviously, and I think more research should be put into it and the article should be further developed on its own.Rowlan 15:52, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
Merge - per Grant65. Rowlan fails to make the case - both are loose modern terms. It might help Rowlan's case if he had loads of early references to "mob football" being used, but he doesn't. There is no tag on the other article btw Johnbod 20:29, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Removal of Merger Status[edit]

Today, 01 August 2006 I am removing the merger bar from the article. I am keeping all the conversation here, but no one has really stated a great case, in my estimation, to merge. If you come across this and have a different view, by all means let's discuss it, but for the present, I want to really improve this article which I started. Cheers! Rowlan 13:40, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

On the contrary, this material is all covered in Mediæval football and it is an insult to the wide variety of games played in Mediæval Europe, to refer to them as "mob football".
I have re-added the merge tag. Grant65 | Talk 08:13, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

This sport still exists[edit]

someone should really say that this sort of thing still goes on. it's been well documented on programs such as countryfile 86.135.53.32 (talk) 10:11, 30 July 2008 (UTC)


Alert[edit]

I am pretty sure that this is plagurized from the HISTORY OF Soccer —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.220.242.162 (talk) 15:29, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

I strongly refute the above claim by our anonymous friend. I will take credit for most of the work done on this page. Others have added their editorial genius to it, and have improved it, but the idea for starting this article and the gathering of sources was done by me. Sources are cited as required by Wikipedia. This is not a copy and past article as there are multiple sources not one as you alledge. Rowlan (talk) 15:30, 24 September 2009 (UTC)
