First of all it is not completely round like a soccer ball, and it has a lot of gravity, second the field would stop it, you (the kicker) does not have enough power, and it is not in a 1 meter vacuum. (if you did have a giant vacuum, it would roll muck farther.

Gravity, friction, (the laces if we're talking about American football).

It's just physics. It's any object not in a vacum.
