Yes, it was invented in England and it is called FOOTBALL, not soccer. What you class as football (NFL) is not football, it is a girls version of Rugby, which was also invented in England, when the toffs at the public school in Rugby, Warwickshire decided to play a game with their hands using a squashed football.

Personally, I'd have prefered Malcolm Maclaren, we could have had Johnny Rotten as our midfield dynamo (makes Roy Keene look tame), Sid Vicious as centre back, the Buffalo Girls could have gone 'round the outside' on the wings and to keep fit he could have got the whole team doing the 'Double Dutch'

..and the Vivian Westwood designed kits would have looked cool with zips, safety pins and rips on them

Don't worry Chris, I first thought the same when I saw the title also. Except I saw the word club instead of team so I kinda figured it would be Soccer. The "club" Archie mentioned is the only one I've ever heard of so I'm assuming they are the best one. Popular worldwide. There's even a store in Singapore that only sells Man U stuff. Funny how soccer is supposed to be a non-contact sport and the fans get into huge fights in the stands.

Archie might be onto something. Maybe the Toffs were playing soccer and the ball somehow got deflated and they couldn't kick it. Rather than stopping the game one of them just grabbed it up and ran off with it towards the goal. Someone yelled, "Hey! You can't do that!" To which he replied, "Fuck off ya Twat! We're gonna win this game!" and kept running. The first guy yelled, "Oh! You've done it now! Let's get 'em lads! Stop him!" and a huge melee broke out. It was so fun they kept doing it every weekend.

Evidently a Yank must have seen it and asked what it was they were doing and the reply was, "That's how football is played in Rugby". So when he came back to the USA he introduced this new method of organized fighting involving one team trying to get a deflated ball to the other side of a field with the other team trying to do everything they can to stop this. It caught on and when someone asked what this new game was called the Yank said, "Well in England they call it football". They asked why it was called football and he replied, "I dunno. I guess it's because you have to try and knock whoever's got the ball off his feet." So there you go. That's how American Football was invented.

I imagine when a Brit came over to the USA and saw this odd game he asked what it was called and the reply was, "You mean you've never seen this? It comes from England and it's called football." The Brit replied, "That's not how you play football! Here, let me show you the proper way." He then took an inflated ball and proceeded to kick it around on the grass trying to avoid the other players. He got tackled by like 5 guys and got really mad and said, "No! You're not supposed to do that!" The Americans then looked at this sissy dancing around kicking a ball and said, "Umm. Well that sucks." The people that did play it became to be known as "Suckers" and over time the word got twisted and "Soccer" became part of the English language.

As for the uniforms, well of course in the USA we have laws designed to prevent idiots from injuring themselves and that's how the uniforms evolved. Probably a group of mothers formed and activist group to ban the game altogether because the husbands and sons were coming home after a Saturday afternoon drunk, with black eyes and missing teeth. But no one was willing to stop this popular game. So they said, "Well, at least give them a helmet so they don't hurt themselves." and that, just as with motorcycle helmets, became the rule. If you want to play, you have to wear this helmet. Over time the padding was added at the cry to prevent further injury. Friggin' safety nazis. I think the next generation of NFL uniforms will be equipped with airbags.

Pete, American football isn't organised fighting, it's ballet dancing in comparison to Aussie Rules, Gaelic Football, Rugby League and Ice Hockey.

Great reply though

I just saw that the American sucker team beat the #1 Spanish team. The article said the Spanish team hadn't lost a game since Nov. of 2006. If the Spanish hadn't lost a game in 2 1/2 years wouldn't that make them in the top 10? And if the Americans can beat them........

Pete, wait for the final game with Brazil or South Africa (they will play today, in a few hours) before you start bragging. The Spanish team is good but the Brazilian team is the best, the only one with 5 stars on it's shield

The American sucker team are not too bad, over the years they have had some decent players, a lot of whom have played their domestic league football in the UK. There has always been a lot of money around to attract world class players at the twighlight of their career in to the US league - Pele, Klinnsman, Gullit, Beckham, Bobby Moore, George Best ..etc

The US normally qualify for the World Cup, so they can't be that bad. I also remember the US beating England on more than one occasion.

Pele and Beckham. Those are the only 2 soccer players in the world that I recognize by name. And the only reason I know Beckham is because he married Posh Spice. And when I was growing up Pele was like a superstar. I think I remember him from being on the cover of the Wheaties box or something (breakfast cereal).

Funny, of the only 2 soccer players in the world I can name. One is from the UK and the other is from Brazil. And I know them from playing for America.

That's the great thing about the USA. We've got the best of everything. If we don't already have the best we'll go out and buy it. One of the best basketball players in America is Chinese.
