Hey I`m neither insulting Americans nor calling them stupid - I accepted it was an Englishman I just cant understand why its stuck when virtually the rest of the world call it Football.
whoa thats funny i never done that before in a game
SOMEBODY COMMENTED UP BACK THAT THE GOALIE HAD SCORED HIS OWN GOAL, WITH A FACIAL. HAHAHAHANYWAY IT WAS A DEFENSE TRYING TO CLEAR THE BALL. HE JUST KICKED IT WRONG, THIS HAPPENED A LOT WHEN I WAS HELPING COACH THE FRESHMAN TEAM IN HS. THEY DIDN`T GIVE THEMSELVES ENOUGH CLEARANCE.HAHAHA HE TOOK ONE FOR THE WRONG TEAM. AHHAHAHAHAOMFG I KEEP REMEMBERING THAT GOAL THAT BOUNCED OFF THE BACK OF MY FRIEN`S HEAD.
it `proves` that americans didn`t make up the name soccer. That`s all I`m pointing out. I could give a sh*t less who made it up, the point is it`s not our fault we call it that. Thus the"Amaricans r stoopid. thay call futball soccar, that dosnt make cents!"insult is null and void.
Governing BodiesCentral/North America & Caribbean: Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF; also known as The Football Confederation).
So the official governing body of football in the US calls it... Football.
B-hazard- all your article proved was that the game really is called Football, and some Eton ponces gave it a $hit nickname that stuck with people that don`t actually care about The Beautiful Game.
meh, i couldnt be arsed to read it all tbf, im sure it was very interesting... :-P i just got confused as i think u shud call `american football` sumthing completly different... lets start the suggestions!
oh and btw its SOCCER! haha i kid, who cares really?
"Typical yank," you`ll all say, "you stupid americans find pain to be humorous" DAMN STRAIGHTsum1 find more clips of soccer dudes hurting themselves, or a blooper reel, and I`ll be set for life.
eh?! if you say so... -
It`s all in the link from the post you just quoted.
eh?! if you say so... )-|
but anyway, that clips is pure jokes, altho its not as funny as that match a couple of seasons ago wer a defender passed it back to the keeper, and as the keeper wasnt paying attention he missed it and it went in the goal.. if they had planned that, that wud`ve been a stroke of genius!
Maybe, but you know they all bought him a round of beers afterwards.
BTW, WE STILL WON THE GAME... THAT WAS ``THEIR`` ONLY GOAL WE HAD 2IT WAS HIS OWN FAULT!!! HE GOT IN THE WAY!!!
I REMEMBERED WHEN I PLAYED SOCCER IN HIGH SCHOOL, I TRIED TO CLEAR THE BALL AND IT HIT ONE OF MY TEAM MEMEBERS IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD BOUNCING BACK INTO OUR GOAL. KNOCKED HIS ASS OUT COLD. MAN I`LL NEVER FORGET THAT BULLSH`T.
The damn word was scribbled out and it`s not like any 13 y/o`s that go to a site with "bullz-eye.com" and the "herbal smoke store" advertised on it haven`t seen a rated `R` movie...
Because I drove that debate into the ground a few days ago.
sabre already got half the point across (the english originated the word `soccer`) but the point I find most amusing is the english are behind our reasoning for calling "american football" football.
it`s all right myeah:http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~pstone/why.html
Thus the argument is over before it began.
We invented it to make you look bad....lol
A lot of America is calling "Soccer" football now, especially on some sports shows...which I guess is a good thing, I was just stating that the term "soccer" originated in europe, but we`ve caught a lot of crap for using a term they invented...kind of ironic.
"Soccer" was originally a term used and created by British/European Gentlemen. "Soccer" and "Football" are the same thing really, but "soccer" was considered a more classy name for the game.
I think it`s funny that the rest of the world went with the non classy title...how does that feel. Anyway, that`s a FACT, look it up.
SOME people?? .... try everyone BUT the US.
