why is football called that?
refering to american football
B/c when you think about it, Soccer should be called football in the US also. I'm an American but I call soccer football, and the NFL American Football.
I thought that soccer was called football somewhere and thats probably so the people that call it soccer dont get confused... idk thats my guess
Because the occasional extra point and FGs are far more important than the constant kick. NOT REALLY.
