That was all I said, and all started.

A few posts before me another member said

And nobody said anything, but as soon as I said that "I don't like the silly name  soccer", Ian started the scandal.

After you said the NICKNAME was invented in England it was obvious for me that it wasn't a USA invention, but I still find it silly, unofficial and hardly used outside USA and Canada to describe officially (or unofficially) Football Association.

I don't know if it is a scandal. It wasn't my intention. And I quoted you even though others had mentioned it because I wanted to clear the misunderstanding up to everyone. You were the last person to say is so i quoted you. Everyone here who posted can read it though.

If anything it was you saying the word was invented in USA that started any scandal. All I was saying, in which Dean has stated, is that the word comes from England and it was once an acceptable alternative name here once that has fallen into decline. You seemed to refuse to accept any evidence I gave, Here is a game I had as a child. http://www.oldfootballgames.co.uk/index.asp?pageid=122015 further evidence if needed,

No, hatred is a harmful emotion. You shouldn't hate either, it's not good for your health.

Hey, I'm already doomed: my father is diabetic, his uncle is diabetic and his cousin is diabetic. And there's a slight obesity problem in my mother's family. I have the perfect genetic lineage!
 
Hmm... Maybe I should do some sport? Ermm

Yeah... But NO.
If you have a few minutes to kill, try to watch some news from the last match in the French Championnat, Paris vs. Montpellier: you should happen to spot some neo-fascists supporting the Paris team.
I'm living in Paris.
I can't play football in this town.

I used to be goalie in the university and played in an amateur league.

Love the sport, even when I had a broken nose, a broken hand (A son of a b**** walked on my hand) and a broken rib. 

But I can't only blame football, because also have a bad knee product of baseball (A guy tried to reach first base with his feet in the front and hit me directly in the right knee, the dislocated kneecap ended in the back of my leg destroying ligaments and everything in it's way), and that's the only one that still hurts me when it's cold.

Love all four sports. I played basketball for 15 years, football is the best sport in the world and I just finished watching the ice hockey world championships where Norway performed beyond all expectations to qualify for the quarter final (Norway has fewer ice hockey players than there are rinks in Canada), being the only team to actually give eventual champion Russia any trouble(twice, for that matter.. we faced the Russians both in the prelims and the quarter final). Even losing finalist Slovakia didn't give the Russians as many problems as the Norwegians did. Team handball is good fun to watch as well.

With magic, you can turn a frog into a prince.
With science, you can turn a frog into a Ph.D. and you still have the frog you started with.
