i`m french/american, so i`ve learned to appreciate both american football and football. ya, i know it sounds stupid. but the whole soccer/football debate is so idiotic. everyone knows soccer comes from the abbreviation for association football: assoc. it is just another language difference. get over it, boys. lol. disagreeable pettifoggers.

Oh, but there is only 1 game called footy. And that is Australian Rules Football. I currently live in a footy state, but grew up in a league state, and even the most die hard league fans mean aussie rules when they say footy. This abbreviation is not used by the other codes. (for the most part, but theres always one on every bus)

Black sheep, I think you`re missing some sports there....
in order to confuse americans and europeans alike, (in fact, to confuse everyone, so that you can be just as confused as an Australian) we have the following games.
football, football, football, football, football, football, and football.
Many players actually play more than one of the above.
Oh, to clarify. Those games in no particular order of preference or manliness, and using terminology for the purpose of clarification, as opposed to definiatively stating what the sports should or should not be called are:
soccer, rugby league, rugby union, aussie rules, american football, irish (gaelic) football, and international rules football. (which is a hybrid between aussie and irish football, played between the 2 countries.)

"soccer" is officially known as "association football". I`m all for calling it soccer. If you have a knowledge of english decent enough to read and/or post on this site you also have (at least i hope you all do) an understanding of the word "soccer". Baby jesus won`t cry, i promise. "football" is way to ambiguous. In fact in Australia the word "football" could mean one of four sports...

Of course, I don`t bloody think that.

The issue is that the actual game of football already existed long and was widely popular well before your crass little game came to existence. Despite this, you lot renamed it (even though it has infinitely better claim to the name) and called it soccer. While, the American replacement was like the ugly bastard-child of rugby.

^ How did you get it in your head that a sport needs to be named according to the most common activity? If that were the case, basketball would be named "dribble ball," hockey would be named "skate ball," and baseball would be named "idle ball."

But... hmmmm... how come they have these other names? Oh, maybe because, in basketball, you score by making BASKETS. In baseball, you score by advancing the BASES.

According to your logic, these sports would have ridiculous names also. Do they? Please let me know, Mr. Sport-name Rulemaker. Thanks.

"So going by your statement, the Argentinians dont play football, they play handball?

And every other nation doesn`t play football, they play diveball. France plays headball, Italy plays cryball and the Italians play roll.on.the.floor.and.act.like.you.were.just.shot.by.a.40caliber.ball?"

You might be right there, but only on the basis that cretinism has impaired your own understanding of statisical analysis. If that were the case, a game like hockey would then justifiably be called "Brawly-Puck-Punchup" just because from time to time fights occur.

And whether kicking is the means of scoring the most points is completely irrelevant, because prior to the goal score, more <b>time </b> is spent with the ball being in the possession of some steroid junky`s hands than being passed up by foot.

I hereby start a petition to reverse the meanings of soccer and football in America. From now on American football will be called soccer and soccer will go back to it`s original name of football.

yea yea primetimekin, its kinda easier to have a fairplay community when u got like 1/100000 as many people practicing that sport.

I`ll give the Americans credit for having (in general) a fairplay mentality as do the British.

You were spot-on about the Italians ;)

--okay world lets make a deal. If the US gets the most medals in the Olympics it becomes soccer. If any other nation wins, then its football--

Pfft, who cares about the olympics I for one hope they finish up before the Premier League season starts =)

But otherwise I would agree with that deal if the US Team don`t refuse to release their drugtests, and preferrably if they don`t threaten to boycot the entire event if the IOC ever so slightly tries to force them to ;)

As the US has it`s version of football named after itself I believe football/soccer (I`ll only do that once)should be called everywhere-but-the-US football. It`s only fair.

I really couldn`t care less, to be honest. Meathead games like Rugby and American Football don`t interest me in the slightest.

Although, it`s interesting how you all like to bring facts into the fray too, because if you put it down to statistics (in the purely mathematical sense) proportionately it is not football - only occasionally.

Of course, now that you`ve called me stupid I can see the validity of your point.

^ Did you know that in college football, WAY BACK IN THE DAY before pads were introduced, up to 19 players died EVERY YEAR? Bet you didn`t know that. NFL players don`t wear pads because they`re pansies, it`s because the league doesn`t want them to DIE.

A lot of time is spent kicking the ball. There is offense, defense, and special teams (kickoffs, punts, field goals- ALL KICKING). You`re stupid.

Ok, so the ends justify the means do they?

How much actual time is spent kicking the ball in the average game as opposed to cuddling it between their armpits? It`s still Manhugging with Padding, as far as I`m concerned. :P

""Considering the players who make the most points are Kickers?"

"Um...what? Where did you get that information?"

He`s right. LaDainian Tomlinson only recently broke the scoring record for a season, and he only surpassed a kicker.

As for ALL-TIME LEADING SCORERS:

As of the start of the 2007 season, Morten Anderson is the NFL`s all time points leader with 2437. Gary Anderson is second at 2434 and George Blanda is third at 2002.

Morten and Gary were both kickers, and Blanda was a quarterback and kicker.

NOW EVERYBODY WHO DOESN`T KNOW WHAT THEY`RE TALKING ABOUT- SHUT THE HELL UP.

I think Football (Soccer) is appropriately named, it`s the American Football that doesn`t seem to match it`s sport name. Most of the time the ball is in the hands of a player, or being thrown. "

Considering the players who make the most points are Kickers?

"I vote we call American Football, "Manhugging With Pads.""
They just did a test that showed that a Cornerback (smallest position in football) hits 6 times harder than a Rugby player. re-consider the name

"I agree with sickandtired.
(Yes I know it is similar to rugby, but at least in rugby we (Brits) are tough enough to tackle without pads..which makes it fairly butch/manly and to be honest..pretty brutal..it`s great)"

Same goes for you. When our 180 lb players hit 6 times than your strongest. There is a need for pads (thank you SportsScience)

As far as football vs soccer. It is really a matter of preference. I am not going to say football is tougher, even though I feel so.
A lot of people who favor tend to say football is nothing but guys running for 5 seconds and then stopping. However there is more to it than that. The greatness of football is that it requires people of all sizes. Where as in soccer it is mostly for smaller people. Soccer is like a marathon. Football is like multiple sprints.

Oh oh I love this debate.
First off it`s soccer. Football is the American sport with a pigskin.
As far as how tough each sport is.
In football the gear is not that big of an impact, obviously the helmet is the biggest. The pads are not cushioned or even there to cushion the blow, they are there to divide the force of the blow over a larger area so people don`t get hurt.
As far as rugby vs football... football players actually hit harder. My evidence you asked? I saw a study on it on a show called Sports Science. They had a cornerback(one of the smallest positions on the football field) hit a wide receiver and measured the force. The force from that was larger then the force of a hit of a rugby player nailing a guy going up for the ball... they said it was the hardest hit in rugby. The force of football was greater, but it was divided over an are so it was felt less than the blow of a rugby player. So they were essentially equal. More on football vs soccer in my next post. I

^^ `No one is debating which sport is more butch/manly/brutal. If that`s the case UFC is much more brutal and "manly" than rugby.`

I wasn`t trying to start a debate, I was merely agreeing with sickandtired.. calling American Football `Manhugging with pads`. But I thought people might have a go at rugby being similar, so I was just backing up my point. I realise there are far more brutal sports out there.

FOOTball is English, why can`t people keep it as FOOTball, it`s not bloody soccer. (That makes me cringe just saying it..let alone typing it)

Regardless, it`s still "soccer" in the US and most likely always will be, so get over it. Personally I would rather see "soccer" players blindfolded and given a handful of "yard darts" to toss about!

That guy isn`t drunk. He`s in severe pain.

Notice how he`s walking? That`s his Sacroiliac joint, or a flexible joint in his hip.

I`ve had the exact same thing, and walked the exact same way.

It feels like your top half is disconnected from your bottom half, and you can see how it affects your movement and posture.

If he`s on anything, it`s painkillers. That s#it hurts.

"Handball or American Rugby would be appropriate"

I would agree, but handball is already taken and more aptly used, and American Rugby WOULD work (since it`s basically a different version of rugby), but the sports are a bit too different for it to work. I vote for Sportball
