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...
