Football is better
It's called soccer because you sock the ball around.

Soccer is hilariously boring. Half the time the players are just faking injuries and crying.

[B]Fun Fact[/B] Americans call american football football for the most believed reason of the game based off of trying to gain yards & [B]feet[/B] because unlike the rest of the world, we do not use the metric system. Soccer, I have no idea. Probably because football is already taken and we try to piss off the rest of the world.
