      They most likely had a couple of different American footballs to see if it made a difference or if they missed the button, so they most likely did blow up both of them (if not more) and the Wilson was just the one they choose for the final cut.

    what is a american football called in the UK (in stores)?
    is a Rugby ball different?

      I live in the states so not really sure what they would be called but I do know a rugby ball is different (It's a bit fatter looking). I would imagine it's just labeled American Football because I can't think of any other name it could be.

      It's called an American football.

      A rugby ball is flatter on the ends which creates more drag, which changes how it flies through the air. It encourages shorter passes and makes long kicks much more unpredictable.

      In the UK its called Gridiron.  A rugby ball is a lot bigger then the biggest American football which is the NFL football.  The Rugby ball has the same design, but its much bigger so it can be kicked easier.

    Gavin: hopefully you enjoyed this mindless piece of destruction

    Me: Oh Gavin, you know me so well.


    On a sidenote, while I feel that the rest of the world calls America arogant when they aren't way too much, when it comes to the renaming of football to soccer and gridiron to football, I couldn't agree more. THAT was a sign of sheer arogance. I realize it may be too late, but they really need to change it.

      Much like the American accent, the term Soccer originated in the UK, and the UK changed it after the Americans adopted it. Soccer comes from the Oxford habit of abbreviating words and adding -er. In this case Association Regulation Football became Socc (from association) er. We also have Rugby Regulation Football, Rugby, and American Regulation Football, American Football or just Football depending on where you're from. The term football refers to a game played on your feet that includes a ball, which is to contrast it from Polo which is played on horseback.

      Soccer was a nickname for the sport, yes, but it was more commonly referred to as football. Early Americans then invented a game that eventually evolved into "American football" assigning it the name football, which was already the name of an existing sport. So, granted, I was wrong when I said that they renamed it, but they did name a sport they created with an already popular sport's name. To top it off, by the time they had assigned it the name "football" kicking or using your feet to touch the ball in any way, had already been removed from the majority of the ruleset.

      Let me clarfiy: using feet to kick or touch the ball is a newly guessed at and ill-conceived definition of football. I should elaborate more next time. The term football would also apply to basketball, handball, and some versions of what we'd call capture the flag (in which the flag is a ball that can be passed about).  The name "Football" is the nickname given to the dominant version of the sportfootball in a given area.

      Sure, and I'll just have a drink of my football here and finish watching this football before I head to the football to have a football.


      "Ill-conceived"? It's ill-conceived to call the sport that primarily requires your foot football? Using that same logic, you could call basketball "elbowball" because you occasionally use your elbows to maintain a proper balance. 


      It has long since been called football and is by no means a "guess". 


      But, yeah, I know, you are going to keep pretending that you are right, because in the current day and age, no one can admit when they are wrong and meanwhile I'm going to keep getting downvoted because I DARED to say something contrary to the GREAT America!
