Ok so american football. Everywhere else they call soccer football. Makes it really confusing
I think they mean Australian rules football.

Just making sure everyone is clear on the idea of "footy".I'm from the USA and have seen the confusion before on this forum and just want to make things clear with cultual differences.
"Australian rules football, also called Australian football or Aussie rules,[2] or more simply football or footy, is a contact sport played between two teams of 18 players on an oval field, often a modified cricket ground. Points are scored by kicking the oval ball between the middle goal posts (worth six points) or between a goal and behind post (worth one point)."
