Is it really a foot ball? A ball is round by definition not a banana shape thing. To call it a foot ball, the game must not use the hands?
So, right up there, the game is a fake stollen from the British rugby?
So a variation of Rugby has been called FOOTBALL, so that to confuse and compete against the real football that uses a round looking thing as a ball, and their feet as the way to manipulate the ball.
Then, my second other action is the coach? In soccer, the coach train set the players, and during the game the players play the freaking game without being used as robots. In football, they right the plays in play book, on the quarterback wrist, and tell him what to do in an earphone? That is the ultimate of robotic insult to athletes!
the idea of having student take a test as their teacher is telling them the answer in an ear piece is very strange. But, since all 350 million American never question such absurdity, then who am I to open this controversial discussion. I just wanted to float these observation with the hope that there could be few people who were wondering about the same strange naming of the game, and coaching of that game.
