  • If you had to rename "football"...

    What would you call it?

    As the World Cup nears its start, I'm mindful of the "football" known by the rest of the world, which makes sense because soccer really is a sport of the feet.

    American "football" is a misnomer no matter how you look at it. Now, I'm not about to challenge its use, but I think it's interesting to ponder what else it should've been/could be called instead. What do you think?

          Id tell the ******* in Europe and the rest of those countries to just accept it as soccer and leave my football alone.

            Maybe "Campball" after Walter Camp. Although, that makes me hungry for soup. Wikipedia states that outside the US, many people refer to the game as "gridiron"

            Thanks to Jakey for the sweet sig

                Good luck with that. Getting the entire world to change the name of the only sport the whole world, outside of the USA, cares about, it's a tough challenge...

                    Why not just calling it Butkus? Dick Ball works to...
