Football means different things in different places. In the United States of America, it refers to American Football, which involves 11 padded players (the offense) attempting to bring an oblong ball into the oppenents endzone, whereas the other 11 players (the defense) try to stop this from happening while trying to cause a turnover (interception, recovered fumble) or make the offense go 3 and out; as 4 downs are given to the offense to advance 10 yards. If they do so, they are given 4 fresh downs. To see more, search American Football or click on the link provided.

Football elsewhere refers to what I and other Americans know as soccer; which involves 11 players on each team attempting to kick a checkered sphere into the opponents goal. Hands can only be used by the goalie, who can not leave the rectangle in front of their goal; other players must move the ball by kicking it or heading it. See other definitions on this page or search soccer for further explanation.

I love to play American Football, whether it is casually with friends or competitively with my school team. I however do not like competitive soccer, though I do like playing casually with friends. It is a matter of prefence, and will everyone stop bickering about which one is better? It is opinion, nothing else.
Fan: Football kicks soccer's f&*%ing ass! Soccer eats hairy balls.

Fan: Football kicks American football's f#$%ing ass! American football eats hairy balls.

Reasonable Person: Oh shut up, both of you idiots. They're both good sports.

OK, here goes... slowly:
The word describes a very populare game, which is played all over the world.
The word consists of two parts, which quite accurately descibes the game:
1) Foot
2) Ball

Part 1) Foot. This means that the foot is the main body part involved when playing this game.
Part 2) Ball. This means that the game is played with a spheric (globe-shaped) object.

This definition seems to be understood all over the world, except in the US, where they have misunderstood both parts of the word. Instead of using their feet, they mainly use their hands. And, instead of using a ball, they use an egg-shaped object.
(Somewhere in the world, exept USA): -Let's play football!
Reaction: they play football

(Somwhere in USA): -Let's play football!
Reaction: they play some strange game, not involving a ball, and hardly using their feet.

A place on urbandictionary.com where obnoxious eurofags bitch about how Americans call football soccer and vice versa.
pretentious european 1#: I can't believe that America is the only nation in the world that calls football soccer. That's suck bollocks!

pretentious european #2: Quite, really. And they're bloody stupid as well; most Americans don't even know what the capital of our country is!

Pretentious european #1: Yes, and at least our queen didn't fuck over the entire Middle-Eastern area.

pretentious european #2: Yes, God bless the queen.

the sport of American (or Gridiron) football is called so because we wanted a sport that was european football and rugby combined. the first version of american football had the punter kick it and players going down feild to catch the ball (pretty much feet passing, then it was switched to the passing seen today). and it was originally callled "American Football" which is why the first professional american football league was called the "American Football League"(which later merged with the NFL). it was called "american" because it is our version of your game. Pretty soon, we dropped the word "american" out of it and it became "football" so all of this is just a big misunderstanding! lol ---- from a guy who likes both american and european football

also, both sports are VERY physical, and I"ve never played rugby (i have watched though, and it's pretty cool) but getting tackled in football HURTS!!!! the pads don't do much when there's a 6'6" guy with 275 pounds of muscle trying to rip your head off!
all I'm trying to say is yes, we copied your name, but on ACCIDENT! just remember that it's just a misunderstanding.... I'm sorry for all of these ignorant assholes making the rest of us american football fans look like,.......well,.......ignorant assholes.

Football is the real name of "soccer." It is all about passion and team work, 1 player doesn't win the world cup, but all 11 players. For some people, football is not a game, it is life, it is filled with ups and downs like other sports but it should not be put next to American Football. American Football has 1 season every year and then stop, but Football is widely play, after a season players get called up to play for there national teams, including during the season, that makes it more difficult that's why you need endurance and ability.
Football players earn more than American football players.

No that's wrong. xanax is made in a few different doses. The small round ones that are peach in color are called peaches. The slightly larger dose which is blue in color and looks like a smaller version of midol (football shaped) is a football. The largest dose which is white and rectangular is called a bar. All are loosely called xanxa-cookies.
dude 1: Want some xanxa-cookies?
dude 2: Whatchoo got? Peaches, footballs, bars?
