ITS FOOTBALL, NOT SOCCER!!! (Page 7)
FogofWar: So you are saying that Episkuros was a more skillful game than soccer?
FYI; Association Football; AKA soccer; is not the parent sport of Football; nor is Football the "correct" name for it.
And if you think that American Football doesn't require skill and thought; feel free to step into any NFL game and take them on.
FogofWar: Football=class of sport played on foot; with a ball. This list includes ALL games in which use a ball; and are played on foot; like:
Association Football (Soccer)
None of these sports derived from soccer; in fact; soccer was established AFTER rugby.
enigmaticpuzzle: Mmmmm I think you misread me...I am a HUGE Football (aka soccer) fan and will ALWAYS give heaps to those who support Australian Rules Football (even tho I'm an Aussie ) - the game makes no sense to me, you get two chances at scoring, what's that about???. In saying that, I would like to see any rugy player have a shot at playing AFL...it's mean and nasty with no protection except for your teeth
FogofWar: I didn't misread anything. You said football=extremely skilled sport..as in soccer.
Football isn't a specific sport; it's a class of sports...several at that.
FogofWar: I dunno man....look at the talent those soccer players have. They must take years of acting classes to pull off those dives.
sonnyvalley: Seattle has a good soccer team. But I can't say Seattle has a good football team because I would be talking about our Football team and not are soccer team.
BlueOlive2: Usa calls it soccer because we have the our own form of Football as not to confuse the 2..different culture why is such a big deal made out of our differences all the time..more than football is different not just a game..everyone has own way of saying and doing things..I dunno I just don't get all the fuss all the time
techmove: Seahawks fan from day one...Da Kingdome!!! er but the name sure sounds like we appropriated it from soccer. Where were the MPAA or the torrent barristers back then...in that apocryphyl colosseum known as sport? (spell that gladiator)
a_Robin: Well ten years ago, in new zealand it was soccer... nowdays its football.. sorry but its still the same soccer in my heart
mrluckymatt: Yeah, soccer is played with two nets and a SOCCERBALL. Football is played with two endzones, two field goals, and a FOOTBALL American football is by far the best to watch...preferably College Football though. My opinion is biased though, as i'm from the states Go Gators and Go Bucs!
oii spread the love no more fighting, you go watch your American Rugby and you go watch your European Football/Futbol haaha!
on a side note...We'll see how the Brazilians will play in the next WorldCup, kissof, they didn't play good enough in the Copa de America.

mrluckymatt: It's American Football Jack, get it straight. Go watch your futbole or however you spell it where you are from. Dueces.
