    I have a silly question..... Why do they call football, football?
    The only time a foot touches the ball is at kick off, punts, and field goal attempts??????:big_smile:

    In the original game there was much more kicking and this was used as the primary way to score.

    Well - I think that you just gave yourself the answer to the question buddy:

    OK lets review:

    1. Kick offs

    2. Punts
    &
    3. Field Goals

    It all equals up to the Foot touching the Ball, witch in turns gives you the reason why it's called "Football".
