Well, now that I read the comments, I don't even know what I'm supposed to debate, so I'm assuming it's whether we should internationally say "futbol/football" instead of soccer (If I'm wrong just tell me :) )

So, I think that we should use futbol/football. Why? Well, I personally think that since the word "futbol/football" is already used throughout most of the world, we could all just use it. To make a comparison here, in the book "Frindle" almost everyone was saying "frindle" and only a small percentage of people still said "pen". It was easier for that small percentage to start saying "frindle" because it would be easier for everyone to understand. Therefore, I believe that we should internationally use the word "futbol/football" because it is easier for people in other countries to understand.

I cannot respond to the above posted argument, because my opponent has taken the same side as myself. In the opening argument, I stated that I would be pro (for soccer). Also, in the title, I state "Soccer vs Football (Futbol vs 'American Football'). So I cannot respond, unless the opponent changes his/her view.

Hmm... I suppose I get it now. You're probably saying soccer is better than American Football (NFL). (The way it was worded was a bit confusing.)

In that case, NFL football is better because it is a sport that is "just for us". FIFA Futbol is international, and therefore with things like the World Cup, there is lots of nationalism going on (just look at what the players do when they score a goal for their country.) If a person's country wins a game, then there will be nationalism going on. With NFL football, people can just pick a team and cheer, without any pressure to root for their home country.

Yeah, I don't really watch NFL football very often, and I watch soccer even less. I was thinking the question asked which name should be used, but now I highly doubt I'm winning this debate.

Freak23, throughout this entire debate the only thing you said is that you cannot respond. The question was not only hard to follow, but I'm the only one that ever defended anything. Must I say more? Vote Con.

@taken.....did you start a similar debate about creativity of the two?

What is this debate even about? The title tells us nothing and both are "taking the same stance."
