It’s football, damnit!

First, let me state here that I had nothing to do with the tag under which this blog is appearing — that of calling football socc… I can’t even write the dirty word in full.

Calling the beautiful game by that dreadful Americanism is one sure way of making me unsure about writing here.

I cannot understand why the whole world would want to call a sport they follow by using a name given to it by a rather insignificant country when it comes to playing it.
Just because the Americans don’t want the sport confused with American rugby, the whole world is now forced to follow suit.

Call me fascist if you want, but I firmly believe that those who really love this game should protect it from all forms of encroachment, including calling it by some silly name.
