I'm betting nobody's going to be petitioning the Aussie government for the same thing.

I guess it's not called Grid Iron anymore but with all those stops and starts it should be called gridlock.
Since kicking is such a small part of the game, American football should be called "passball" or "carryball" or "runwiththeball" or "fightovertheball."
Handegg

It should be called Handegg. Because that's what it really is. It's not a ball, it's an egg. It's carried in the hands. It's Handegg. And the Interblag agrees with me.

Right. So in fact Rugby should be called Handegg, and AF should be called American Handegg.
