BECAUSE WE KICK *** AND FOOTBALL KICKS *** AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT WE'LL KICK YOUR *** AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE US WE'LL KICK YOUR *** BECAUSE WE ARE *** KICKERS...
Just kidding, I hate sports (all of them) though I will watch our hometown team The Ravens this weekend...hoping that they lose big-big...bunch of freakin' outlaw-scumbags (except the kicker and a few other select good-guys).
I think the name was changed from Football to Soccer way back when, to seperate us from everybody else. Although, I am speaking from a Canadian point of view, but we still do use the name Football for football and Soccer for soccer. It's just the way we are.. different.
Just because everybody else does it, doesn't mean it's cool. Haha.

well.. I understand you like to be different.. and calling soccer for soccer sounds ok.. but why is American football called football?!.. hmm.. maybe we should start to call soccer for handball, because you use your hands for a throw-in..
oh well, whatever.. its good to be different so, guess that explain it all.. and THANK GOD for that the driver is positioned at the left on my Ford..

Taken from Wikipedia:
History Both American football and soccer have their origins in varieties of football played in the United Kingdom in the mid-19th century, and American football is directly descended from rugby football. Thus the name "football" has carried on, despite the fact that most of the plays in a typical game involve handling the ball rather than kicking it.
