    Default Up in Arms Over ‘Soccer’ vs. ‘Football’

    Interesting background on the term "soccer". Apparently, it was a pretty common term in the UK before some 70s anti-Americanism made the word "radioactive"

    I actually wish that American (pigskin) Football was named something else.
    "Football"... the ball is rarely kicked.
    Talk about a name for a sport that wasn't fitting of the game...
