We Need Calcio Fiorentino in America

For those of you that don't know, Calcio Fiorentino is basically what would happen if we took the NFL and made players stop wearing pads and told them they should actually fight each other throughout the game. This is what the NFL wishes it was.

The game starts with each team of 27 players (No substiutes or backups or second string allowed) all just start beating the crap out of each other. Boxing, Kickboxing, Jiujitsu, Wrestling, nothing is really off limits here. Their goal is to incapacitate the other team and grab the ball in the middle to score in their opponents end zone. This is 100x cooler than football and you're wrong if you say otherwise.

Imagine getting NFL tickets with complimentary MMA fights. Not that bullcrap where football players push each other and get fined or kicked out of the game. No. Full on knockouts and broken limbs from submissions and pure brutality. No padding, no helmets, just action.

It's time we start an American League for Calcio Fiorentino, that way our culture at least knows it's a sport and not an Olive Garden entrée. This is America! We're just gonna let Italy have the coolest ball game sport ever? I think not. Move over Italy, we want to beat the crap out of each other during a sanctioned sport without refs throwing flags too.
