publicity, money, the fact its fun, interesting and gthe fact its called football instead of ricking soccer its a british sport, shouldn't you start calling it the same name as thwe people who invented it, and isn't football a more logical name for where you kick a ball with your foot, what does American 'football' have to do with football anyway, shoudlnt we be calling that soccer instead of American football?
"Football" is not an acronym. It's a combination of the words "foot" and "ball" and actually refers more to the sports of association football (soccer) where the foot makes much more contact with the ball, but in the USA, the name stuck with the sport known around the world as gridiron football.
Soccer is a sport that improves your stamina and foot-eye coordination.
because it is a sport you play with a ball but use your feet so instead they call soccer foot ball because you obviously use your feet to kick the ball.
Soccer is a nickname for association football. The british have many nicknames for their sports, as do other countries. For football they would often say "asoc" or "soccer" which were shot for association. Football is the official name and simply refers to playing a sport with your foot and a ball. Some others sports have tried to take the football name. Australian rules football, American football, rugby football, Gaelic football. But few can be called real football as they don't use their feet to play the sport. Only association football, the world most popular sport, can call itself football in any reals ense of the word.
Soccer, there is no protective gear other than shin guards, and a lot of players hit the goal frame with their heads or at high speed. It's also a common occurrence to raise your foot in soccer, which doesn't happen in football and causes severe injuries.
The us dislikes soccer because most Americans aren't very good at that sport. You got to admit that british and Mexicans are very good. And America only has one soccer team and other places have many. In the United States football or in the U.S now days is called *soccer* is a sport not as recognized than the rest of the world. This is because England far back were the superior countries, the United States had not been discovered now. England had found a new sort of entertainment, they used this as foot-ball. The object of the game was to kick the ball into the opposing teams net without using your hands, (to a certain extent) After this England found a new sport that originated from football, called rugby... They used the same terms as football, but instead you were able to use your hands. (All sport titles originated from organizations creating sports) Atfer Columbus's expedition people began to realize entertainment could highly be rised with sports... But they enjoyed the hand version of football better, *Rugby* and adopted it, and instead used the name football which came from the name of an organization that created Rugby. With all Americans loving their origins they began to use football as an American sport, with people still liking the real football better the sport had to be called something else, so they called it soccer, the name soccer came from another association who was widely known for sports. To this day, since America is so widely separated from football countries they have their sport... And we have ours.
the name "soccer" is not the real name it is football. Football is because you use your foot. duhhhh!
The real name for Soccer is Football. You use your foot, to move the ball. Football was invented before American Football, the rules were written before American Football's rules. American Football shouldn't be called Football because the foot is barely used.
