    REAL football? Just stop. This is American Football. It isn't false nor real, better or worse.

    Anywho, the highschool team I'm on is going to playoffs so there's that.

    No he's correct.
    Soccer isn't a sport.

    we call this sport "american football" because only americans use the word "football" to refer to that sport (a sport that practically doesnt exist in any other country).

    and since this is an international community,
    - "football" refers to what americans call "soccer"
    - "american football" should be the term used to describe that sport you're talking about in this thread

    It's called (American) Football, because the ball is ran...GET THIS....ON FOOT!

    History lesson over.

    And yes, it's extremely arrogant to call American Football "real" football. English Football has been traced back to the 15th century, before the United States was even a county.

    I have heard arguments on both sides, and from the most common arguments I have heard, both sides need to dive into a history book on the subject.

    I hate when people say this. You do realize what Soccer stands for?
    Everyone called the sport Soccer at what time but when europeans started calling it football again the name only spread to some parts of the world.
    That is why in America and in other places we call it soccer.
    LETS SEE
    Africans call it soccer.
    Mexicans call it soccer.
    Americans call it soccer.

    I MEAN BRITISH PEOPLE CREATED THE WORD SOCCER AND NOW THEY JUST RIDICULE OTHERS BECAUSE OF IT.

    But the official international governing body of the sport (FIFA) call it football. And they should know, right?
