Why “Soccer” is a more accurate name for the sport instead of “Football”

Ok, I’m American.   And that game where the players kick the ball around (or bounce it off their heads) in hopes to get it past goalkeepers into the goal….

Yeah we call it “soccer.”  And yes I know that most of the world calls it “football.”  But I finally realized why “soccer” is more accurate.  

Observe:
What do players kick the ball with?
A foot? INCORRECT.  The ball is kicked with a shoe.

But it’s not called Shoeball.  So what’s the next layer under the shoe? The foot?  INCORRECT.  The next layer under the shoe is the SOCK.

So ok they took liberty with the spelling,  but “soccer” is a more accurate term than “football.”
