i agree with the football thing but you must understand, that it is the united states. they call it soccer (i think its wrong but hey its their country). probably we would hate it too if they corrected us for calling it football. its all about tolerance

My mother language is Hungarian. I had to learn Russian in school, I learned Austrian and Romanian because I was around them all the time. Austrian is pretty much German but with some accents...


I can only write and read in Hungarian. I forgot Russian because it's been about 9 years since I last used it... And I can only speak Romanian and Austrian.

cause this is by god america lol. why is soccer called futbol?

Actually, up until rather recently the world called it soccer just as much as it called it football. The word "soccer" is a short name for association football. Not only that, it was actually started by the English. The same people who hate the word today. Go figure!

We call if football because we are America. We'll call it what we damn well want to call it. Also, we call soccer "soccer" just to piss off **bleep** bag brits. I'm not saying all brits are **bleep** bags, but just the ones that get all worked up over us calling soccer "soccer".
