@InsaneWolf, I feel like the old grandma with the reading difficulties
I thought we were aware of the reason it was called soccer
@TheKen42, and also the reason why (American) football is called that: because the ball is a foot in length
@TheKen42, ... Because we punch women?
@TheKen42, association football was shortened to soc and they added an er
@TheKen42, because they wear socks
American football should be called Tackleball.
Change my mind.
@I Are Lebo, How about Concussion Ball?
Why can’t Brits tell the difference between an egg and a prolate spheroid?
So in the UK it's Football and Egghand?
The British named both of them. Association football got shortened to soccer (by the brits), gridiron football got shortened to football (American football) and there's also rugby football, you can figure that one out.
Sports in Oz: Large roundish ball on grass without a net? Footy
The name Soccer comes from England where the sport was invented not the US.
Association Football = Soccer
Y’all got some fvcked up eggs in the UK. Are the laces attached to the egg when it comes out the chicken or is that some weird UK post production sh!t?
