American football reminds me of a 80's video game like Space Invaders, it is slow and you have to wait for the action at times.

Soccer, especially in the U.K, is fast and flowing. No safety equipment required (apart from a jock strap).

With what do you use to get around with in the game we call football?
We're still stuck in the 16th century where did that come from?
Anyways what ever happened to "Don't sweat the small thing." you're the first European that I've met that gets this excited about the usage of soccer.


Are we gonna call Hockey for "Skates with puck" aswell? The FOOT and the BALL never has any contact. Except when they try to kick it through that Goodolfashionamericanoversized goal. And im sorry that's just not enough for me.
Since english isnt my native language i do not know what the phrase mean. But i guess its something along with "Du gör för mycket pannkaka av smeten" on swedish... And your see its important for us to at least keep something thats ours in a world where the americans are trying to supersize and americanize everything.


And the 16th centurypart... I bet you got me wrong.
Preconceived thoughts = 16th century
Unprejudiced thoughts = 21th century
This is really a discussion for another topic so PLEASE, dont get me wrong.. Im not talking about YOU personally. Its your way of living and the attitude among your fellow americans. I bet your a great guy :)

Fast and flowing.. thank you! Someone who gets it. But when did the jock strap get required? I've never seen a footballer with jock strap. Perhaps they're hiding it well.

You know that it was actually the British who invented the word soccer in the 1880s. So you can blame them for trying to supersize and dominate the world and steal your culture. In America it was actually called football for quite some time. Also it is not only America which used the term soccer but also the Canadians and the Australians...are they also trying to dominate the world by using the term soccer.

It really is not that big of a deal. We call it soccer over here. So what.

outta wiki:

"Names of the game
Main articles: Football (soccer) names and Football (word)
The rules of football were codified in England by the Football Association in 1863, and the name association football was coined to distinguish the game from the other forms of football played at the time, specifically rugby football. The term soccer first appeared in the 1880s as a slang abbreviation of Association football, often credited to Charles Wreford-Brown.[18]

Today the sport is known by a number of names throughout the English-speaking world, the most common being football and soccer. The term used depends largely on the need to differentiate the sport from other types of football played in a community. Football is the term used by FIFA, the sport's world governing body, and the International Olympic Committee. For more details of naming throughout the world, please refer to the main articles above."

and yet to me it's football ever!

You're right, tis true. Soccer was derived from the word football association. The association part usually being shortened. Took me all of two minutes to find that.

Xavier is who?! You are WHO?!
Im not spoiled. The gold in my pocket and the silver on my bankaccount is made with my own two hands.
I dont see having alot of money as a bad thing either. It opens alot of heavy doors that is so hard to open otherwise.

And whiping my own ass givs me blisters. Feels good to have someone else do it...

ITS FOOTBALL............. FOOTBALL....................FOOTBALL.

I think the simplicity of the name was a bit to hard to comprehend for some hence why some call it soccer. Or could it be North america just want to pretend they invented something new ???
