why do we get to be called football while you put american infront of it?
hmm, interesting question, probably because football came first and is used all over the world in a larger scale then american football =)

Actually Soirem is right when calling it Futbol and football. Consider ur post simmen, I mean u are right when u say "american" should be a better way to differentiate both footballs tho consider the fact u may be talking to an american person ie me. Living in Mexico I've always called both games "football" making the only difference of the way I write both. Why? u may ask. It's simple, futbol is the way u write it properly in spanish while football is the proper english-american way to write it.

I believe we have established that this was made my soccer/football/futbol lovers to piss off football/american football people :P

I remain unbiased as I like both ;)

well soirem, it's the truth =P
they are not really using their hands for anything else then kicking it once in a while, and running. if thats the qualifications needed handball might be concidered football as the goal keeper can use their feet :roll:

Why compare Football and Futbol? Usually ends up in people bashing American sports.

There are many types of football played all over the world as Routhy’s post shows. Also, Australian Rules Football is intense. If you haven't seen it then watch it now, there is so much contact.

Rule of thumb = Whichever football is most popular in the nation you're in is Football, the others go by their alternate/full names. Online, you have no nation, so either stick to alternate names (like Soccer and Gridiron) or be prepared for confusion and possibly flaming.
