    Soccer was created so in AFL, when players kick the ball off the ground for a goal, commentators could describe the act as the player "soccering it off the ground"

    Here's a semi-serious question then:

    Which of the football codes are most closely related?

    Obviously league and union & Aussie Rules and Gaelic football are no-brainers, but what about association football? Is that Gaelic football too? I mean, they play with a round ball as well. If so is Aussie Rules more closely related to the world's game than the rugbys?

    Where does gridiron fit in?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Up until I was 16, I thought they were saying "socketing".

    I do not know why.

    Gaelic football isn't a real sport, it's just something Irish nationalists invented to spite English people.

    They all come from the same thing don't they? As I understand it, started with folk football which seems to have just been a big fight on a field, then eventually schools and universities started playing it but all with their own different rules.

    Don't see why gridiron shouldn't be included tbh.

    I'd say that football (soccer) has the least in common with the other sports as all the others involve use of the hands and a far higher level of physicality

    Obviously scoring in Aussie Rules involves kicking but aside from the players being spread out over the pitch, that is pretty much where the similarity with football ends
