Haha, I meant a net sport like tennis, but now that you specified a hoop, I know what you're talking about. I think they played both. Pretty sure the sport never left the region though, so it seems unlikely.

But nonetheless, football lives on, fortunately, regardless of where it came from.

The actual football off course. American Football should have been called American Rugby because it has more similarites with Rugby.

I'd be interested to know what the American Football association is called (full title) . The English Football Association has laid claim to the simple title F.A. (i.e. without needing 'English' in the tilte) because it was the first of it's kind in soccer.

While I don't want them to change the name of the game after all this time, I do wonder why someone named American football "football" in the first place. I realize you punt and kick at times, but they play such a minor role in the overall scheme of things it makes you wonder why they ever settled on the name football to begin with. But I do like the National Football League name due to its familiarity.

It's part of the football family of sports. It's not that someone named it that. It came from rugby football, which presumably came from association football (though maybe not, I don't know). But as they made changes to the rules (intentionally or not), they didn't change the name.

Adam, I was just gonna come on and say the same thing! You are spot on! And, although it could be because I grew up saying NFL my whole life, but NRL (if they stuck with rugby instead of football) just doesn't role off the tongue as well ;)}

Anyways, I played both versions of football, I have a special place for both, but personally I rate American Football as my number 1 football...

Well in the end, I really don't care much what they call it. I love NFL and college football like no other sport and I'm so glad football season is upon us! Bring it on!

Which kind of football? the everywhere-else football league of America (MLS) or the American football American football league? (NFL).

I think America is just a bit off when it comes to some things. We still haven't adopted the metric system!

Man, f**k the metric system. In all seriousness, though, why does it matter what either is called? They aren't going to change, that's for sure. By the way, (American) Football season is coming! Yay!

Well, the metric system is more precise being a base ten system. However, I'm not losing any sleep about it. I think changing the speed limit to the metric system would just confuse most of us Americans.

I don't care about precision. Metric is just so much easier. I always forget how many feet are in a mile, and making quick mental conversions of inches to feet, feet to inches, feet to miles, miles to feet, etc. are more difficult than necessary. And that's just to get started on distance, leaving out all other forms of measurement. It's a completely outdated system.

You would think if we could make a complete change to digital television that we could also make the switch with the metric system.

The metric system is the tool of the devil! My car gets forty rods to the hogs head and that's the way I likes it!

Classic quotes aside, I'm guessing the switch to the metric system probably won't happen here. There are some things Americans are stubborn about, and this is one of them.

I do like the way we highjacked the thread, though. High-fives all around!
