Thanks to Kyle Speicher for submitting this one.
‘you Europeans’… ‘old Europe’… LMAO! they’re so passionate about their idiotic sports wherever (whenever i hear it called ‘footie’, i fucking cringe), they embarrass me. then again, so do the facepainting jerks back in the States. ‘footie’ as if it’s an affectionate name like ‘telly’ for TV; is there a word for simultaneously cringing, eye-rolling and face-palming? nah? there should be.

Why YES, there is.
That would be “Getting Squicked”.
Well, call it soccer if you want, but talking American football… why is it called FOOTball when they run around with this thing (which isn’t really round enough to call it a ball), carrying it in their hands? I don’t mean to say that it’s not a good game… it’s just not a very good name for it
It’s because both evolved out of the same sport (“football” was the general name for that sport, “soccer” was the name for it that people in whatever Association for the sport that was around at the time called it).
Eventually, one branched off when they took to carrying the ball around more than kicking it around. BTW, I think there are some parts of England that calls “football” (in the European sense) soccer, too.
Can anyone explain to me how a sport in which you run around with the ball UNDER YOUR ARM can be called football?
Please! Anyone! Rid me of this mystery.
And then they call football “American Football”. As if there should be any other kind. Ha.
Americans are dumb

Well…. There is other kind of football game around the world. There is “rugby football”, “Australian football” “American football” and “Association Football”. And no only the Europeans call Association football just football, almost the entire world call it football. But you think that the world ends in your borders and your country is the center of the universe, right? Sorry but the world is not flat, it is round, you know.
Well, about 10-15 times a game, someone does actually kick the ball. So there’s that…
Plus it’s too late to call it “Throwball” or “Carryball”.
I. Just. Lost. The. Game.
Americans are known to have 4 legs.. that’s why they call it football. They also use feet instead of meters.. that’s why their Engineering is so much Zoongineering.
