    “Running around biting each other’s dicks in the Scrums... “

    I find with Joe Rogan if he has some knowledge about something like DMT, Drugs, MMA, Grappling he’s ok but if he doesn’t understand he gives his opinion with the exact same confidence instead of simply saying.... I don’t know enough about this to have a meaningful opinion....

      Americans think noone in the US cares about soccer. But generally Americans care more about soccer than the world cares about football

                Soccer comes from its official name "association football". Its called soccer in lots of countries. The story he tells about a guy picking up the ball is a story about rugby and is believed to be a myth.

                  Joe, Greg here. Try watching some American football. You don't have to touch the ball to the ground anymore to score a "touchdown." They stopped doing that around '89. That is, 1889.

                    I went thru a phase of about 3 weeks of getting into the Joe Rogan podcast. I eventually realised he talks pure shit most of the time, please don't take anything on the show as fact. It's entertainment

                      Err.... it's cuz americans would get mixed up with 'American football'. Same in Australia with Aussie rules football. So they call it soccer. It's known as soccer in a lot of countries...... but!...... England invented the game and they named it football. IT'S FOOTBALL. The greatest sport of all time. It unites the world

                        Also. Soccer is an English word also. But the working class of England call it football. It's football

                      American football already existed here so they called it soccer.

                        The story about the origin of “American” football is actually true. EXCEPT it’s the story of the way that rugby originated.

                          It's not football, it's gridiron. And in Australia and New Zealand they also say soccer.

                            American Football should be called " American Fruitbowl " - bunch of rugged Nutters wrapped in hard protective Skins - any seed , nut or fruit with a shell .

                                I think everyone outside United States know that one is Football the other is Amaerican Football, nobody really knows what American Football really is, but that it is a thing.

                                  Football in the USA is called that because the shape of the ball is the same as the top of the top of your foot then ankle and shin.

                                  Soccer is a British term that they abandoned because it became too American.

                                          Sport full name is Association Football, soccer was used as a shortened version of association as there was also “rugger” as slang for Rugby football. Football became the easy use for association football as rugby became the usual shortening for the variant of football originated at rugby school. They are all codes of football, so calling it soccer or football is right.

Every town and region had their own rules and there was no single agreed way the game should be played. In this form it spread to other countries like USA and Australia where it evolved into the modern games known as football there. Some time in the late 19th century a bunch of dudes got together to try and codify the rules into a unified sport - from this meeting two groups diverged - association football (soccer) and rugby football (rugger). These forms of football were spread throughout the world by English immigrants.

In England supposedly they called all sports played on your feet a version of foot something. So, this got translated I believe. There is a ball and you play in your feet. Rugby I believe in footie in the UK. The US took all these names from the uk and some got used weirdly. We call it soccer just like someone may call American football the NFL or mixed martial arts UFC or tissues Kleenex and so on

Of course, that's a mouthful so we just called it Americano for short and soccer for, obviously, soccer. No certain what they call it now.

                                                                                            Its called soccer because that is what people called it to differentiate it from other similar games that were also called football. Some people made a group called the Football Association and they called their version of football Association Football. Soccer comes from the abbreviation for association and they just added the -er at the end which was common at the time. So this means that soccer it actually the real name for the game while football can mean any game involving your feet and a ball. Rugby was also called football at one point. There was also a game of football that was like soccer and rugby combined.
