fieldgoals kickoffs and punts all use the foot. game starts off with a kickoff. Sounds like FOOTball to me.

Yeah and most field goal and kick off players come from the real game of futbol (soccer); cuz they are experts and know how to make them fly best/farthest.

Mint, if you haven't noticed: In what you call football the ball is in somebodys hands most at the time. In soccer only feet are allowed when dribling and passing the ball. Still you americans claim the right of using the name football. How about using some sence here!

Seeker - i have seen plenty of games of football where players use their legs, chest, head and even hands (keepers, throw ins, and Diego Maradonna against England). A lot of goals are scored off the head!

It (the eggs shaped ball version of the game) is called football because of, allegedly, William Webb Ellis, at a school in a town called Rugby, who while playing football, picked up the ball and ran with it. Rugby Football was born from that and all other oval ball games are derivatives of that, and are still called football because of it.

Hmmm are you saying it's called Football because someone playing Futbol kicked the ball so hard it deformed and wouldn't roll anymore so they had to break the rules and pick it up and start running with it? There was no ref and they other team got so upset at the illegal hand manuever that they ran the guy down and tackled him to stop him from making it to the goalie?

Let's change the name to "Highly Paid Armored Egg Warriors".

Thanks for the info, GAK, which was interesting. And of cource you are right, all parts of the body except arms and hands are used in football=soccer.

However my point was, as the picture indicates, that soccer has more to do with football than the American egg handling game.

Actually I don't care much what it is called, but each time somebody calls soccer football there are Americans protesting against that, which I don't think is fair.

"each time somebody calls soccer football there are Americans protesting against that"

Yes, but those are the same people who watch American Idol, and think Coor's Light is beer. We don't listen to them, and neither should anyone else. It just makes them think their opinions are valid and important.

Then there are those of us who don't give a rat's ass, but it's fun to watch people get crazy over silly things.
