            Pure ignorance from this guy...
            1.The USA is not the only nation to call the sport soccer. Others r Canada, Korea, Japan, Australia and parts of South Africa.
            2.England did call the sport Soccer for a time who do you think invented the word in the first place? It was a common word used side by side with football and it wasn't until the 70s that it started to faze out and replaced entirely with football.
            3. American Football evolved from Rugby obviously. Rugby was very popular in American colleges in the 1880s. But how Soccer evolved into Rugby and then into Gridiron Football I have no clue.
            4. Its called Soccer because back in the day it was popular in England to add ER at the end of words ( Don't know what was the deal with that ) Rugby was called Rugger and Soccer also known as Association Football they took the SOC from it and added CER do it and boom Soccer.
            I call it both which ever come out of my mouth I don't even think about it. So stupid to get upset over one lil word.

                            I believe it was an English dude that made the word "soccer" up. Association Football.

                                Just to put things straight, the term soccer is an English term. It just became less and less used in England as the term was adopted in the US out of convenience to distinguish it from American football.

                                Nowadays since US is not a football country most football fans in Europe find it diminishing to use the term soccer. This is as if soccer being too associated to a place where the sport is not played very well would then become a subsport.

                                      Football ⚽️ was invented by the British. The word SOCCER was also invented by the British in Oxford university. No idea why

                                            It should be called gridiron. Everyone knows football is football even people that say soccer know they’re wrong they can’t even argue against it anymore lol.

                                                  🤔 Americans should rename their ‘football’ to EggHand’ coz the ball shaped a bit like a egg and they use their hands 🤷🏻‍♂️

                                                        Touch down is a better name to ‘American Football’

                                                          It used to be called ‘Soccer’ in England originally

                                                              Finally an American using the correct terminology. ⚽️ = football

                                                                Uhhhh y are people so stooopid its based of off rugby from England so they got influenced from the sport but they split with some rules from it too the Nfl and Cfl so when soccer came around her in North America they decided Soccer because its short for association football so that explains it

British immigrants brought rugby football and association football in its early stages to the United States from which American football diverged from by officially calling it just Football and changing its rules. Yale University seems to be the official originator of the game, however it was already being played as such in the fields. The immigrant brits called association football “Soccer” because it was easier to say and remember and it stuck. Rugby, Soccer, Football(American) are all forms of football because you play a ball while on your feet.

                                                                        • Mikael Peltonen

Which is not too far off even when talking about MLS. Europeans and South Americans who go play there are ending their careers and want to cash in in a "minor series". They don't need to stress and sweat like when playing football. Maybe MLS is improving but that's what people think about it outside US.

                                                                          • BurnRoddy

What they call soccer has always been called football all around the English speaking world, even tho it was sometimes written as soccer in woed by mouth it wasbeither football or footie. In fact the first soccer body founded in 1883 was called American Football Association.
