  • A bit late on this particular debate, but didn't we used to call football, soccer, too? And I don't mean two centuries ago, but even as recent as the 70s or 80s, or is my memory failing me?

    It’s been interchangeable since I was a kid but now the Americans have adopted it because they call NFL football even though it’s more life Rugby, personally I get annoyed if anyone other than an American uses the term.

    Celebrate it, Anticipate it, Yesterday's faded, Nothing can change it, Life's what you make it

  • Yeah, more interchangeable, I agree.

    When I was a little kid, I used to have the football albums and purchased my weekly allowance of stickers for the soccer album. I'm sure that was called a soccer album.
