I wouldn't call it stupid since it's a legitimate name:


BRiiZZiiE
                                    because we can call it whatever we want too. In 1860's British upper classes called the sport as a nick name Assoccer, which became soccer. It was passed down to the less fortunate as soccer and then as years went along came back to being football. Football was also loosely translated in immigration. Such as Madrid originally called it Sociedad, by it's British founders. The US did use football Association until the 1970's and then changed it to soccer. North American's aren't the only ones who use soccer, some area's along the Caribbean use the term soccer. So basically I can't believe you British people don't know your own history. You called it soccer before us, it's just basically a nickname. a shorter version of Association football.
soccer's intense because at that level of competition you can't let up whee GO SPAIN!

I know it's legit, but it's stupid.

Soccer is short for Association football what the sport is really called

Its called Football because one plays it on Foot (at the time most sports in England was played on horse).

i would say the same applies to the US Football

Because it's like a war. You got 32 countries competing to win it, representing their country to see who is the best in the world. And you get bragging rights. ;D


Agreed.

That's why it is sometimes called "hand-egg" by die-hard soccer fans!
It brings people together.

Its intense because for 90 minutes the world stops and its focus straitly one a ball, it is so intense because everything that can happens happens an every thing that should not happens happens. Football Is intense because the emotional Rush that it is able to give you, because watching players give everything in order to control a ball is the idea of being able to control the world. Football is so intense that it is able create emotions to vast that you had no idea you had. So powerful that in Would War II bullets strop for 90 minutes in order to watch One football game.

Its INTENSE BECAUSE ITS FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!
