Whether you are referring to American Football or Association Football, the answer is no. Dr. James Naismith invented the sport of basketball in 1891, the sport of American Football was introduced 2 years earlier in 1889, and Association Football (or soccer) came about approximately half a century before that.

They are both the same sport, unless you referring to American Football and soccer, in which case then American Football is much more dangerous.

No, it is far from A rubbish sport, it is a great and demanding sport. The general US consensus on Soccer is; that it is merely a great exercise type sport for American Kids till they play the superior sport of football, like they always do. Football is in the American DNA. That is why European "football" is really only good for Europeans and the South Americans that British Soldiers brought Soccer/Football to.
