well, the egg spends a fraction of the time being kicked in american football, while the ball is constantly being kicked in regular football.

are you sensing the pattern yet? maybe you need to look at the pictures you posted just above and think about them a little bit.

yea, see... i don't think you guys are getting the point.


if there's a problem with handegg being called "football," it's not because something completely unrelated was already referred to by the same term. most words have multiple meanings. it's not any kind of problem until... well, it becomes a problem or gets needlessly confusing.

in other words, a jumping insect is called a cricket... and a sport is also called cricket. is this somehow causing anyone anywhere problems?

no. if there's an issue with handegg being called football, it's because they're both popular sports and both played on the same fields and arenas in many cases. but only one of them has a name that makes sense.

agree / disagree?

Handegg sounds retarded, not that 'football' is all that great of a name either. I think soccer is the better name. Who cares anyways? They're just generic names. Maybe we should switch the name to Handvesicapiscis to appease the doofuses over in Europe?
