Football means....that there are people hitting/playing-with the ball with their feet [foot]...but never understood why Americans call it Soccer? And why is Rugby [little different than American sport but hey] in America called Football when they actually pass the ball with their hands and are holding the ball in their hands:)...I know that players hit the ball with their foot once in a while but 99% of the time the game is played with the hands.

No means to disrespect...but like I said...I was just wondering:)

it makes no sense to me either but we don't question it. In America football is like soccer is in Europe

even for me, I love football way more that soccer :D

Yes the debate about this still goes on, but from what I've read, the word soccer originated from England or at least was popularized by an English man. So Americans using the word soccer aren't trying to be arrogant or wanting to be different as some do believe.

As to why the term soccer is used instead of football, i don't really know. But i'm guessing since Rugby football; which is the origin of American football, was already established in the early 19th century before football(soccer) was established in the mid 19th century, they decided to go by the term soccer for football to avoid any confusions as Americans usually just say Football.

P.S: This is off topic, but if anyone has more information about this subject and more discussions about it are wanted, then a trend can be opened for it. And of course, welcome to all the new subscribers....

tks for the warm welcome guys :) it was actually Ian who introduced me to this forum, which is a great one :D i can say that in Malta german football isn`t very popular compared to Serie A & EPL... imagine that some people here still think that Bayern are the only good club in germany :evil: having such mixed supporters for different clubs i think comes from the lack of professionalism in our own league & especially the nation team, thats why people tend to chhose a differnet club...
