@Wnderer: And We should stop calling it Soccer and start calling it No Hands Ball.

How about leaving "American Football" the way it is and changing "Soccer" to "Real Football" ? LOL

LOL. "Soccer" does not imply use of hands.

On the other hand, we should call US football "no-foot ball," as the name is self-contradictory! Well, at least during 99.9 percent of play time.

@Wnderer: Last I checked the World Cup was only being played in Brazil.

      Sure -- but there are teams from around the world.

The [world Series] games may be only played in North America but the players are from all over the world.

      The players, sure, but you don't see teams from England, France, Germany...

@Max It doesn't exactly roll off the tongue ... back to the drawing board...

And We should stop calling it Soccer and start calling it No Hands Ball. Stop all that whining about 'you should call soccer, football and call football something else nonsense. Last I checked you needed feet to play football.
