The Round Ball Game (Football/Soccer)

Football is known as "The World Game" or "The Round Ball Game" around the world except in a few English-speaking countries.

Australia is still one of those countries that refers to the sport as soccer, especially in the mainstream media.

In my blog, the posts alternate between using football and soccer for the round ball code whereas Australian Rules football or the oval-shaped code is referred to in my articles as footy or AFL.
