  1. Paul, your confusion lies in the fact that you think real football is the stuff played with the hands (Union, League etc).
    You need to wake up to yourself and realise that the real football is the world game, and the only one played purely with the foot.

  2. Paul, football is what americans and australians call soccer because they have a local football code. even the british who invented the game call it football but since in Australia there is at least 4 codes that use the term football, footy etc. then fair enough to your confusion. NRL, ARL, AFL seem not to like other codes and especially FFA using football because they have assumed “ownership” of the term when really there is only one football (aka real football aka soccer). Confusing yes.

  3. when people call soccer football it absolutely confuses me. I was reading this as if it were talking about real football, then after it stopped making sense i realised it was talking about european football aka Soccer.
