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
IB name for the World Cup?
Is there an IB name for *here's* World Cup?
Is it anything like American "football" *here*? Or is it something entirely different (perhaps akin to Venedo-Potawatomi Squamish?) Juan Martin Velez Linares 09:29, 13 Nov 2015 (CDT) I think American footbal was more or less ruled out. Could be misremembering. BoArthur 07:58, 13 November 2015 (PST)
