I'm starting a movement to have soccer officially recognized in North America as football, and the N. American brand of "football" (i.e. the NFL) to change its name to something more fitting. Helmetball? Tackleball? Whatever, just as long as it doesn't infringe on a sport that is known by the vast majority of the free world.



I was born in a manger, like that other guy. You know, he wore a hat?

Well, no. That's not going to happen. We're Americans, we'll call it whatever the hell we want to. You're playing soccer.

I know in Austrailia(and probably every other UK and/or European country),they call it Gridiron.

MONDAY NIGHT GRIDIRON!!!!!!!!!!



I just call U.S. Football,Football and Soccer,Soccer but i still like Soccer but i doubt the name change will ever happen.

The NFL just makes too much muala.

But then the Aussies call their funky non-soccer game football, so they're no better than us! ;)

Why don't you work on getting the CFL to change it's name.

I've used the terms soccer/football interchangably all my life. I noticed on my vacation last week that both terms were used in Ireland as well. Plus the reference to "American football" was used more than once.

Adidas' "Footballitis" commercials during this world cup have been pretty funny.

I'd put money on the Redskins throwing stupid amounts of money at him. The Broncos wouldn't be that bad a fit, either. Smith's getting old, Lelie's inconsistent and Darius Watts is still young. It's worth a shot, at any rate.
