No mention of the Oxford origins by anyone, eh? Oxford students had a penchant for nicknaming things by ending them with -er (e.g. Rugger). This was gone into at some length by Rory McGrath on Balderdash and Piffle (BBC) in his diatribe against the term - it is largely hated here in the UK, and derided as the US/Australian name for Football.--Amedeofelix 14:59, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

We never say "fudbal" in Croatian, only "nogomet", and I've deleted that line from the part of the article regarding translations.
