The West Team
No issue with the historical accuracy of Football in Cowboy times, there would definitely have been Brits bringing the game to the New World around a decade after the establishments of the first clubs in England, and the first documented US Football game took place before the oldest Scottish club was even founded. Although it wasn't until the late 1880s, the end of the cowboy era, that the game took its current form with agreed standardised rules.I had an issue with playing soccer for a little while. I'm into riding my horse out to mend fences and the like. Couldn't place myself in the picture. Playing sock balls in the west, isn't that a modern day game? Not so. Google says - Records trace the history of soccer back more than 2,000 years ago to ancient China. Greece, Rome, and parts of Central America also claim to have started the sport; but it was England that transitioned soccer, or what the British and many other people around the world call “football,” into the game we know today.
