Really??? "Football" doesn't work for "soccer" but "rugby" gets you American Football.

Please change this. Rugby and American football are two completely different sports. There are no similarities whatsoever.

Whereas "Football" is the correct name for the sport everywhere except the US!

I'm from Australia and I can testify to it being an extremely popular sport. I can only imagine what it's like in India where they piratically idolize every player.
