There are Two Sides to Every Story

I don’t understand why American Football is called “Football.”  Football literally means foot and ball – which would imply that the players kick a ball with their feet up and down a field….very much like in European and Latin American futbol.  In American Football the players run with the ball in their hand – which is absolutely forbidden in futbol.  In American Football, there is only one kicker and he maybe kicks the ball once per game.  American Football should be called “tackle ball” or “American Rugby” rather than bastardizing the original game by calling it “soccer.” What is soccer?
