You should accept gridiron and american football - not only does "football" refer to different codes of football in different countries, in Australia it even refers to different codes depending on state.
Level 15

All the people who are saying 'You should use different terms that show up in different countries', it says on top, 'Give us the American name'.

Well, I only knew a few of these. After I guessed the ones I knew, I just started guessing sports at random, and I got most of them. I suppose to make it more of a challenge, you could make it so we had to fill in the sport name next to the term.

Is Frisbee seriously a professional sport
Level 67

why would throwing a disk be less of a sport than hitting a ball with a stick or your feet. Or throwing a ball ( that covers most of the sports I guess)
Level 75

"professional" sport. If there are no governing bodies or paid participants then it probably would be considered a sport but not a professional one.

Similar but different, you can do a ceiling shot in squash though so it should be accepted as a correct answer.
Level 67

I just ended up guessing random sports. I'm rubbish at sporty questions. But no cricket? That's just not... oh never mind.

No "frisbee" (let alone "discus") for ultimate frisbee? Fair, but harsh.

the comments are brilliant ... football or soccer - seen "corner kick" so typed football and the "stiff arm" clue filled in, so being the reasonable Brit that I am, and having read the "bit at the top" I type soccer. . It's not difficult. It's an Amertican based website, we all know that, so live with it.

BUT - what on earth is "Ultimate Frisbee"... and don't tell me there's a "Normal Frisbee" too...

Ultimate frisbee is a "non-contact team sport played with a flying disc". It's fun.

Level 30

There is a shot named uppercut in cricket. ie; it is not a term limited to boxing. Cricket should also be accepted
Level 69

Football should seriously be accepted for soccer, and American Football for "Football".
Level 68

I thought tenpin would be a short cut for tenpin bowling, but it seems not. Nor is tenpin bowling allowed. Just "bowling".

There are of course other sports called bowling. In the UK, we have crown green bowling and flat green bowling.

Level 65
Aug 25, 2020
Probably right, but I think of those other sports you mention as 'bowls'.
