- American football, which entails throwing and hitting, and a little kicking
- Australian Rules football (I'm not convinced by the idea of the words 'Australian' and 'rules' in the same sentence, but whatever ...), which entails throwing and running, and a little kicking
- Erm... Rugby football - which entails throwing, hitting, running *and* kicking, and is therefore, I suppose, more sophisticated

For completeness, soccer (bleeugh!!) is almost all kicking (including, or in some cases, preferably, one's opponents)

I'm sure this has advanced the discussion immensely
