    Default Soccer and football

    why is soccer called soccer in america while football in america is called football while in europe soccer is called football, so i think american football should be called soccer and football should just be football.

    That was the longest sentence without a real structure I have ever seen.

    Football is called soccer in an act of rebellion. People of America wish not to be associated with people of England. When they get a new sport, they name it with a name that makes sense to them. As for changing it now, it wouldn't work. The names have stuck.
