So UG, what do you call the sport? I know in America we call it Soccer, cuz we have our football (which is so much more entertaining), and you guys call soccer, football


What do you call it (besides a waste of time)?
I actually do have schizophrenia, so stop making fun of people who have it.

I call it football. You kick the ball around with your feet. I makes sense.

EDIT: Oh yeah. Or 'fodbold' in Danish.

It's football. Because, you play with your feet... But here, bunch of moronic imbeciles (who don't give a **** about footbal except as an excuse to booze up when there's championships) will all think AMERICAN football if I call it that. So, soccer.

I call it soccer, because I'm an American.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Football. Because that's what it is.

I'm going for the "it was here first " argument.


Yeah, so am I. Also why do Americans call their bastardised version of Rugby football, yet the ball is predominately moved around the pitch by hand? They need a new and logical name from the game, like PussyBall or BodyarmouredBall.

In sweden we say fotboll. So I say football(when I talk english).

But I guess that if someone started the conversation by saying soccer(not football), I would continue the conversation saying soccer. So it depends.

Is that because Web Ellis was playing football when he invented Rugby?

Svensk fotboll suger så man skäms ju.
Zlatan är dock rätt kunglig nu.


I say football or maybe futbol since it's just awesome to say.

For you people who actually make fun of football... sorry, American football... no living person today made the sport. There's no reason to rip on normal people just because a game exists in our country that you happen to not like.

And besides, we can call it whatever we'd like. It's not like soccer is the only thing that we call different from something that you do, but we don't hear brits whining about them, do we?

American Football would be watchable if it didn't take so damn long, I'm not talking about clock stopping and that but the ad breaks are unbelievable. It's hard to get excited and passionate when there's no flow, although I guess Americans don't really know much about passion for sports.

I didn't even read the thread, thought it was which do you prefer...

15 mins. Not quite

Although they milk the actual breaks in the game. A change of possession should last 20/30 secs but they take a 1 min and a half break, then there's a punt, another break and then finally the other team has the ball. Ridiculous, ads have ruined quite an enjoyable sport and I don't how they get away with it.
