    Seeing as how you boys like to bicker about which word is correct (Soccer vs Football) in the news today, I decided to go find out how soccer came to being and wiki Football's history and found this

    The Origin of the Word “Soccer”

    anybody want to just call it internetball to avoid all these arguing from now on? :P

    That's very interesting!

    I remember from when I took Spanish classes that soccer/association football was called futbol, and American football was called futbol americano.

    It doesn't, but this is the off-topic forum, so it is acceptable to post here.

    Soccer is a funny word. I prefer to just call it football since it is primarily played with the feet.
