I just tumbled this and then realized the depressing story at the bottom. Gotta crop that out. R.I.P. baby.

"Yup. The only reason we call it "soccer" is because the name "Football" (or "Futball" if you are so inclined) had to be reserved for something far more kick*ss."

If by "kick*ss" you mean colliding with some excessively clothed weirdos, while carrying an oval "ball" which isn't even used with the foot, well...you have a strange feeling of "kick*ss" or football.

Kickarse football would be something like...running around a field with a long stick that looks like a sword and trying to get the ball from someone(who has to get it to the enemy`s goal place) with it by either fighting him with the stick or pushing the ball from underneath his feet. The ball carrier can, of course, defend. Hey wow, maybe I invented a new sport.

@Ginerio: You have to think to play football? No-one has told David Beckham or Wayne Rooney, they're hardly the sharpest tools in the box.

I honestly don't understand how much "thinking" goes into European football. Apart from setting up tactically to a more defensive or offensive formation, set piece play, and making substitutions to get the most out of your players, is there really all that much thinking involved? Seems to me that the vast majority of the time, it`s all about quick reaction and making the most of the situation given the way your players are situated when you get near your opponent`s goal, frantically trying to set up a situation where you can get a clear shot on goal. I think it`s more about the skill of the individual players and the chemistry of the team more than about "thinking," especially from the fan`s point of view (and I`m NOT diminishing the sport or the skill it takes to play it). This as compared to baseball (where there is strategy involved literally pitch to pitch) and football (where each down and distance presents different tactical challenges).

The reason why you americans don't like Football is because you actually have to think, instead of doing what someone else told you to do.
