Why do americans call it football anyway? Us english people actually use our feet in proper football, and so the name fits.

I don't really know for sure why we call if "football" but it might be because we do kick it a lot, kinda.

Theres kickoff, punts, and field goals.

yes, there is kicking involved, but is actually a very small portion of the game. of the roster of what 56 or so poeple only 2 and on rare ocasions 3 of them actually use thier feet on the ball. so why do americans call it football? I have no idea. footy is the real football.

Aussie Rules is the ONLY football to watch-exciting, fast, skillful. They kick the ball not like in Rugby which I call "cross country keepimgs off" Exclamation
