What the fuck you asking me for?

Like I named that gay ass sport.

The abbreviation for association football is Assoccer.

Now put two and two together.


:alien51:

That is what I mean Americans abusing the English language.


So we can still have our pan Atlantic special relationship. And not go to war on this issue.
I will abbreviate American football.

lets call it Caniball instead

Seeing as that you yanks canibalise the English language it seems appropriate.

This article is a submission for the Soccerlens Football Writing Competition; to participate, please read the details here.

Contrary to what the media and others want you to believe, the word “soccer” is not an American creation. Or, “They (rest of the world) call it football, and we (North Americans) call it soccer.” icon wink Why Do Americans Call It Soccer?

Derivation of the word

The word was derived from Association Football, which was the original term given to the game in the 1860s at the elite schools that spawned the sport in England. The abbreviation “Assoccer”, which became “soccer,” was used by the British upper classes of that period. When the sport was embraced by the less fortunate, the name of “soccer” was passed down. But most commoners used the word “football” to describe their new game. Nowadays, from the British Royal Family down to the passionate supporters in the terraces at Anfield (Liverpool FC), Old Trafford (Manchester United), or Stamford Bridge (Chelsea FC of London), the game is called football. Or “footy.”

Proper football team.

BTW, Soccer is short term for Associasion Football, which sports like Rugby and Handegg evolved from. Yes, Handegg used to be Football, but over the years the rules have changed so much it's a completely new game, they have no right to call it Football anymore. Infact, isn't it actually called gridiron?
