Well, I`m a fan, and I call it soccer (a British word).

Probably because the designer used a design package and never bothered to
test it with a good cross section of browsers, let alone a validator.

Funnily enough, I attended a lecture on website accessibility (most
councils have had to go through this because of HMG regs about
accessibility of .gov.uk websites. Pity HMG doesn't do more to follow its
own guidelines really!) and football websites were commonly used as
examples of how NOT to write a website. Obviously, Chelsea didn't want to
feel left out!

Obviously not, or you wouldn't call it "soccer". ;)
