Why is American football called football if the feet are hardly used?

Because Soccer, Rugby and American/Canadian football all have their roots in a similar variety of games that all involved (to varying degrees) kicking a ball through a goal, all of which were commonly called football. Different regions of the world each called the game that became most popular in their region by the generic name of football. American Football, Australian Rules Football (aka Rugby) and Soccer (international football) are simply reflecting this historical naming confusion. The players feet are not "hardly" used in American Football. They use their feet through the entire game; they just don't touch the ball as often as in soccer. It's also worth noting that of all the world's football codes (soccer, American/gridiron football, rugby league, rugby union, Australian rules football, Gaelic football), soccer is the ONLY one that prohibits use of the hands. All of the other codes allow all players to use the hands, and they all involve kicking to a greater or lesser degree.
