One big thinking question was asked last week...

WHAT IF FOOTBALL HAD NEVER BEEN INVENTED?

Well done to everyone who entered this competition. We were curious to see what you came up with and we enjoyed reading about the community, the economy, and the national pride that come with the game. Congratulations to storytelling_crow and methodical_duck who were our winners this week, with well-reasoned and interesting answers!

    If we lived in a world without football I believe the world would be dull. Not exactly dull, but boring. I believe this because along with the cons it brings people together,my whole family and I watched the football match and talked and laughed. Even though it might divide countries it brings fun into the world with supporting different people instead of us being boring. It brings competition into the world, it inspires young children to be athletic, all the boys and most of the girls enjoy playing football it’s the highlight of their day to play with their friends and try to win the match. It’s true their are other sport like cricket following behind football with the 2nd biggest sport but football has had the biggest impact on the nation and will continue to inspire,bring colour and so many wonderful things into this imperfect world.

    People would be playing cricket as it is the second most popular game in the world as 2.5 billion watch cricket but 3.5 billion people watch football.

    If it hadn’t been invented, baseball could have been the global game, by research i found. There had been an incident where all the tickets had been sold out and many other fans broke the door or something and ran over other fans, causing many deaths.

    If foot ball had never been invented a lot of things would never happen. Like in England a lot of people come together during matches and a lot of people have found a passion for football and even made a name for them self like Beckham.
    On the other hand if football had never been made a lot of people would never have bet on matches and lost money and even some people have bet on matches and lost things like cars and even houses and this can cause homelessness and yeah I know people bet on all different things but during events its mostly football.

    If football had never been invented then it would probably be some other sport like basketball, instead of the FIFA football world cup it would be a new world cup and Ronaldo would be just a normal person along with Gareth bale. Anyone who plays professional football will not be recognised as a famous person anymore they would just be a normal citizen like everyone else. In my opinion i would like it if there was no football so my mum and dad wouldn’t scream at the TV while i’m in bed.

    In my class football puts a smile on peoples faces and I like football because it shows that girls are capable too and everything that a boy can do a girl can too referring back to my first point not only does it bring a smile on my class it brings a smile on everyone’s face lots of people have cried in football the crowd and athletes and same people are like over that? Yes over that,that is how you know football means that much to them they would cry over missing a penalty without football in my opinion the world would be a boring place even though I don’t fully enjoy football I and I don’t usally play it but I would rather live in a world were they have football then don’t.

    Well, to most people it terrible for girls since, people can be very sexist to girls about sports. But in my humble opinion, sports to me is a talent and a speciality to most people because football is their life and if that was taken away from them, then they would basically be having their life taken away from them.

    If football had never been invented then maybe the world will be a little bit more mature and might be able to connect with others. I also think that maybe it will be a little more boring because no one will be able to play football and not be able to entertain people who want to watch football.

    I live in a alternate world where football does not exist. The world’s economy is a lot less, firstly, companies and factories and sellers who sold merchandise, footballers’ uniforms and tickets don’t exist, and aren’t contributing to the economy. TV shows and channels following football don’t either, and less people watch TV, instead finding more active or constructive things to do. All the money used on the football is instead spent on charity and housing. However, other sports, such as cricket and hockey, are very competitive and receive a lot more attention. Sports are more focused on the fun and the love of the sport instead of money. Overall, this world may be a better place…
