Soccer or Football?

Posted by Anthony Mango Friday, June 19, 2009

Look, I'll tell you ahead of time, I'm not doing the research for this, because it doesn't interest me THAT much, but...

Why didn't anybody stop the person who decided to switch up the football and soccer terms? Wouldn't it have made much more sense to call soccer "football" like the rest of the world, and have this new oval-balled sport being invented have the name of "soccer" or something else entirely?

Which of the two, American Football, or American Soccer, uses more footwork? American Soccer. Which of the two uses forceful impact? American Football. "Sock" is a term used for punching. "Socker" could've been a decent name for American Football, as it would imply the tackling motif.
