Re: Why do they keep calling Soccer Football?
Think about it.

Soccer, is really football. When you play soccer, what do you hit the ball with most? Could it be umm, oh yeah!! YOUR FOOT.

It actually makes more sense that way.

Football in America should be called: Thick skulls, no brains.

Seriously.

Football in america is mindless barbarian-like games that give me memories of gladiator.

Go back to sleep America!! DRINK YOUR BEER AND WATCH DUH TV.

Maybe because the ball is kicked with your foot.

Re: Why do they keep calling Soccer Football?
Uh, sure. But let's get back on topic.

Soccer is kicking a ball, and just that, only one 2 persons can hold the ball in their hands under special circumstances (the goalkeepers). It isn't anything like football where one always holds the ball (except when going to kick and when the ball has been thrown).

Bottom line OP:

Your conclusions are void.

Soccer, SHOULD be called football.

And they should just cancel American football forever.

football was invented by the brits and called football.

The yanks as usual stole the name for their own shitty game that no other country plays due to the crapness of it.

Re: Why do they keep calling Soccer Football?
Soccer should be called Football
American Football should be called Tackleball
Kickball should be called Kickball

Now that that's cleared up...Let's talk about Handball in the Olympics...

I liked the game but Handball to me is played with a small blue rubber ball that you hit with your hand up against a wall in an enclosed room.

Olympic Handball should have been called Rushball.

Call it what you like. You have to call it Soccer or you mix it up with American Football.

Nobody plays American Football anywhere else so there is no mix up.

Australia still calls it soccer, our national team is the Socceroos. They are trying to change over to calling it football.

Our other football is AFL or aerial ping pong.

Re: Why do they keep calling Soccer Football?
The game was invented AND named by the British, is it too much trouble to use the proper term 'football' when referring to the game? just out of respect?
British people don't refer to baseball as whacky ball do they?.....NO....so Americans please start using the proper word, NOONE is interested in your crappy sport of rugby with pads on, so drop it, it's a shit game.
Also whilst we're on this, colour has a 'u' in it, and you do not spell or pronounce aluminium as aluminum, got it?....GOOD!

Wrong.


The rules of football were codified in England by the Football Association in 1863, and the name association football was coined to distinguish the game from the other forms of football played at the time, specifically rugby football. The term soccer originated in England, first appearing in the 1880s as a slang abbreviation of the word "association", often credited to former England captain Charles Wreford-Brown.[46]

Today the sport is generally known simply as football in countries where it is the most popular football code. In countries where other codes are more popular, the sport is more commonly referred to as soccer, and indeed is referred to as such in the official names of the governing bodies in the United States and Canada. FIFA, the sport's world governing body, defines the sport as association football in its statutes,[47] but the term most commonly used by FIFA and the International Olympic Committee is football.

Listen up you stupid Limey. Petrol is short for petroleum which is crude oil, which is fucking retarded. You don't put crude oil in your car now do you? No, didn't think so, you put gasoline in your car, which is the proper scientific term. We just shorten it up to gas, for gasoline which actually makes sense, not fucking petrol.
