Question What the????

can anyone explain why grideon it is called football, when it is thrown around not kicked and the only bloke that kicks the ball is the punter who gets paid millions for maybe one or two kicks a game. and he gets paid probably more than one footy team put together here in Aussie hahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a look at Aussie rules or Rugby (league or union) now these are games of football. without being wrapped in a slumber king matteress and a bike helmet. I have tried and tried to understand the game, but it just does not cut it for me.

Lot of tuth in what you said, mamabear.

Perhaps, American Handball would be a better name for the game.

(no padding or helmets for Gaelic footballers either)
