    Soccer isn't the same as any of those you just said.

    The same terms can mean different things in different sports. For example, a throw in football usually means a throw-in or a goalie throwing it. Whereas a thro in american football means one of the out field type guys (quarterbacks or whatever) throwing it...

    Exactly

    and Europeans say football means foot on ball so it is football not soccer

    The funny thing about all these other forms of football is that they allow the use of the arms. Surely they should be called handball

    Does the foot actually ever touch the ball in soccer?

    No, the shoe does.

    Socker was close as it is closer to the ball than the foot, but perhaps "shoeball" is better.

    I think we should strive to name each sport as a literal description of the game. Golf should be called, "whack ball with firm rod".

    A regressed 4th gen noob:
    For example, a throw in football usually means a throw-in or a goalie throwing it. Whereas a thro in american football means one of the out field type guys (quarterbacks or whatever) throwing it...
    Out field guys? An outfielder is a baseball position. And yes they will throw the ball to the infield.

    In American football, the "throw" is called a "pass".

    At a bar, "throwing a pass" means flirting with a woman.



    directly staring at the boobs is probably a bit forward.
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?
