Uh huh...

And saying "American football" while you're IN America is just redundant.

Most of your friends, maybe. But that's not most of the country, though.

I'm sure in Australia, rugby is commonly called "football".

... yeah. And my point is that you DON'T NEED to say that. There's only one NFL and it's in America. There's no need to call it American Football since everyone already knows what it is and where it's from.

That's my point. It's redundant. It's just like calling someone a "human person" or calling what you have for lunch "eating food".

it's not redundant to call it American football on a soccer message board where the terms soccer and football are both used to describe the sport of soccer.
