Americans dont like football because it is 1. More popular than their four sports combined. 2. Has more history than their four sports combined and 3. Doesn't have stops every 33 seconds so they can waddle to the kitchen and get another pack of crisps.
The fact you say you give Europeans shit for it just shows how ignorant you and your countrymen are. Football is a WORLD sport.
As far as calling sports what you want. That causes nothing but problems. As is constantly shown on this site and gets people pissed off. I.E. My original moan.
You lot need to realise that this is a site used by people all over the world and footballs are round to most of them.
That you had to edit your response to justify you calling it football is laughable. I bet you rang everyone you know to find a reason.
That mod who put up the rules in The Sports Thread is needed back here asap...
Our football is real because it is played with a ball and your feet.
'Hand egg' isn't an insult its what you should have called it. That or something more appropriate.
When I first started using this site there were clear rules in The Sports Bar stating 'call a sport by its full title'. There are 200+ countries in this world. To all but four, football is played with a round ball. Why the the post with these rules was removed is anybodys guess.
