  2. The Gipper Says:

    Only in America do they play it this way and call it football.
    Every where else in the world is it called football and America calls it soccer.

      Gipper,
      I have never understood that. I did some looking and found this,”When the sport arrived on our shores in the late 19th century (the US National Team played its first game against Canada in 1885), it was called Association Football. It was not called soccer. Only after the Second World War was the sport commonly referred to as “soccer.” Perhaps due to the growing impact of the NFL (American Football), and the belief that the game was foreign. Which is strange, because in the early 20th century, there were many industrial teams and leagues throughout the country.”

    Are you ready for some football?

  4. Hedley Says:

    Supposedly soccer was slang for Association as in Association Football to differentiate from the codes of rugby football. A 19th century English derivative.

    You say soccer, I say Tottenham Hotspur
    You say football, I say Detroit Lions
    You say Detroit Lions, I say America’s Team

    Suh to you and the KTCC Football Family.

      My Dear Hedley,
      I, of course, would agree with only your very first line as you have made me a Tottenham fan, but as for the rest. It would seem to me that America’s team is better called the Patriots.
