    Most Americans and most of the Australians that ive met call it "soccer" and it is also possible that other domains in europe and elsewhere lead to the same site...

    Thanks for the original idea. Who knows how many registered users (premier members) they have missed out on by making this obvious mistake?

    Face it fans, we owe chiefduffer a big pat on the back for revealing THE reason why we are not a more successful SOCCER nation.

    I thought it was called Association Football.

    I don't know I've been in a dizzy since the US founded the first professional team outside of England.

    football is descriptive too.

    What does soccer mean - sounds like a threat from a holligan

    I'm sure Dan Loney will be here anyway to remind us, but I'd still like to point out that the correct abbreviation for "association football" is ASSBALL.
