Yeah…Fuck Off England…You Snobby Lying Bitches


Yahoo   Soccer? Pah, a silly American term created by a nation that has its own national obsession.  No country has been snootier toward the USA’s use of the term “soccer” than England. Before the Group C opener between the two sides in Rustenburg, the Sun newspaper even ran a spoof front page urging Fabio Capello’s side to win the “soccerball world series.”  But let’s take a halftime break here.  Coupled with their team’s humiliating exit from the World Cup it might be another rude awakening to the Brits that soccer isn’t an American term, it is actually an English one. And it isn’t some modern fad that shows disrespect to the world’s most popular sport, it dates back to the earliest days of the game’s professional history.  Indeed, until the last few decades, even Englishmen would routinely refer to their favorite pastime as soccer, just as often as they would say football.   Clive Toye, an Englishman who moved to the U.S. and became known as the father of modern American soccer, bringing Brazilian legend Pele to play for the New York Cosmos, takes up the story.  “Soccer is a synonym for football,” said Toye, who helped launch the North American Soccer League in the late 1960s. “And it has been used as such for more years than I can count. When I was a kid in England and grabbed a ball to go out and play … I would just as easily have said: ‘Let’s have a game of soccer’ as I would use the word ‘football’ instead. And I didn’t start it.”   Those assembled became the founding members of the Football Association (which still oversees the game in England to this day). And they decided to call their code Association Football, to differentiate it from Rugby Football.  A quirk of British culture is the permanent need to familiarize names by shortening them. “My friend Brian Johnston was Johnners,” said Toye. “They took the third, fourth and fifth letters of Association and called it SOCcer. So there you are.”

Ahh so all along it was the pansy ass British that started calling soccer soccer and they tried to blame us for not respecting the game.  Well fuck you England!!  I always wondered why the hell we called the game soccer…just seemed too strange to just be made up on the fly.  Well looky looky it turns out it’s just a slang term for asSOCiation football…thanks for selling us out to the rest of the world you limey fucks!  We’ve been the running joke for third world nations everywhere who think we don’t know the real name of the game.  Except it’s the guys who like to lose wars to farmers that invented the term.  What can you expect from the country that just recently discovered the best way to fight a war might not be to stand in a neat orderly row in an open field?  Ditch digging and camouflage just recently made it across the pond so we can’t be too surprised that they tried to pawn the soccer thing off on us.  So any time any British fucker gives you shit about calling football soccer you slap them in their fucked up teeth and reference this blog…down with England…back stabbing sons of bitches.
