ITS FOOTBALL, NOT SOCCER!!! (Page 16)
tiris363: In the US, most don't about soccer but the sports networks push it like it has a huge following, I guess it is just pandering to the third worlders where in their countries and villages soccer is popular.
Paul013: The attendance figures at MLS games in the USA regularly top 50000 so some people should get their heads out of trumps butt and look around the country and take note of the WHOLE country .!!
Skullpunt: They use both in the US football and soccer but mostly they call it soccer because take as an example I tell you come we watch the football match and we wait till the match begin till you see I meant American football because for Americans that is football and you are confused but if I say come we watch the soccer match you know I didn't mean American football only at some places they say American football and football so American is with the oval ball when football with the round one.
Because American football a lot of confusion is made about what sport do they mean now and that is why even we say soccer because of football ok but which kind of football than if you say soccer it is soccer and no American football.
In the UK it is easy there it is soccer and rugby and confusion about which sport is mentioned can't be. Like wrestling years most thought oh no it is fake a lot of comedy and just sells yourself but except for those comedians there is a real kind of wrestling and ok it looks gay because the tight uniforms, ball protection, brace and helmet that is wrestling and not what we see in the WWE with a microphone from dude I break each bone in your body selling a lot of bullshit but that is what people like and it brings confusion so the same was for football because some are from you throw the ball and kick will others are from no football is with the foot so to make it easy it became American football which is played partly by foot partly by hand and soccer which is only played by foot except for the keeper who may touch as only player the ball with his hands.

YetiFinder: In UK too it is called football and it is most watched game in UK and if u watch the english league it is one of the most interesting game you will ever see. Besides all over Europe, Latin america, africa and asia we call it football because we play with foot. Thanks
beckys35home: In the U.K it is called football NOW. Back when American football was being developed, the game it was closest to was football. In the 1850's England played soccer and football. They later changed the names to football and rugby. The united States kept it as football and soccer.
