First topic message reminder :

As above, if possible can the title of the football page be amended to make it "soccer". Many countries have their own native versions of football, and we seem to have a multi-national spread of users of the forum. for example, an american friend of mine who recently joined, entered the football page as he wanted to engage in a discussion about his favourite team, the Oakland Raiders. He was quite confused to find much of the threads and discussion was about teams and sporting terminology which was totally alien to that of the sport with which he was familiar. As an Irishman I myself sometimes unwittingly venture into the football page in search of news about the Offaly footballers before realising my mistake.

Would this be possible?

This has gone on too far.

Football will be renamed "soccerball" and American football will be hereby be called "rugby for girls"

CF requested for it to be permanently removed, tbh it's not a request I like to do, I much prefer for the accounts to be made inactive through a banning or a change of password as in the vast majority of cases people have a change of heart after sleeping on it or after a couple of weeks and wish to return.
I have notified CF prior to it being removed that if he wants it permanent then it will be permanent from this side as well and that any account that has the trademark CF style will be be removed as well.
If people are that adamant to have their account removed then it's the point of no return, I don't want them back afterwards.

He also didn't give a reason and was insistent that he didn't have one.

How about changing it to "Association Football". That is a fair compromise no?

Soccer is the only version of 'football' that exclusively uses the feet (except for throw-ins... Whistle .... ok, so drop the exclusive bit, yis pedants!)

But why should the football that uses less hands and more feet than the other versions be the one to drop 'football' as it's descriptive title?

Spock wouldn't like the lack of logic in the request.
