AAARRGHH! Must we name this page "soccer"? IMO, it's most likely to be more widely known simply as "football" *there*, rather than this vile translatlanticism. If we had a page named football, describing bunions I could understand it, but otherwise I can't. Deiniol 17:21, 23 Jul 2005 (PDT)

The usual etymology of soccer is that it comes from a wearing down of "Association Football" since the late 19th century. If history's just a little different *there*, then it might be unlikely that they call it "soccer". Even so, I am 100% sure that the world in generall calls it football, even if the Americans choose to be different! Elemtilas
If nobody objects, then, I'm going to move this page to Football. It'll ease my poor European sensibilities! Deiniol 03:54, 24 Jul 2005 (PDT)

IB name for the World Cup?

Is there an IB name for *here's* World Cup?

Tejan football??

Is it anything like American "football" *here*? Or is it something entirely different (perhaps akin to Venedo-Potawatomi Squamish?)
