    I know!!! People - It was just a suggestion the point is the US should give "football" to soccer and give american football a new name. Just my opinion - they probably aren't but oh well.

    no way, other way around. soccer should be the universal term. soccer or association football.... those're your choices

    "The rules of football were codified in England by the Football Association in 1863, and the name association football was coined to distinguish the game from the other forms of football played at the time, specifically rugby football. The term soccer first appeared in the 1880s as a slang abbreviation of Association football, often credited to Charles Wreford-Brown.[19]

    Today the sport is known by a number of names throughout the English-speaking world, the most common being football and soccer. Although FIFA, the sport's world governing body, defines the sport they govern as Association football in their statutes[20], the most commonly used term by that organisation and the International Olympic Committee is football."
