I agree. Most countries apply the name 'football' to a different sport. In fact, it should really be changed to American Football.

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.

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...
