RESPECT Sports..............................except Cricket.....................................................and Darts
Soccer was a word invented by the British way before the more common word 'football' was used to describe the game. The more you know
Oh and motorsports...pretty dreadful
Pro Basket, College is pretty good
oh and golf is fun to play, but watching it is pretty dreaful
And by rule, any "sport" where you can smoke and drink while playing isn't a SPORT
And I'm done
Football was a general term describing a lot of sports invented in public (private, just called public) schools in Britain during the Gerogian/Victorian Era. Basically in places like Eton, Rugby, Westminister, Winchester etc these prestigious private schools. These sports were then exported around the globe with the empire and emigration. The term soccer comes from slang used in those schools, they shorten the term association football (football full name) to soc, and added the 'er. Hence soccer. It was the around this time that the sport went to America and the term stuck. There was a concerted effort to change the name back to football in the UK.
Linguistically the -er suffix is still used in common slang in the UK, its called the oxford -er. Some of them like, rugger for rugby didnt stick though.

Also, by definition, any sport in which you score by using your feet is "football".

F1 is all about who has the money, just like any other motorsport.
