Footy is not just soccer
It can refer to Australian rules football, rugby union, or rugby league. Basically, it’s whatever you want it to be, except probably those disposable socks at shoe stores. So learn the difference and make sure you know what you’ve committed to watch the next time you’re asked to come out for the footy game.
