Actually, it's you that is being "cute" here. In the case of the person who plays soccer, the verb is play. So that person would be a soccer player. As for the kid, yes he would be a player, as he is the one who is playing, or played while at recess depending on tense. The point, as I'm sure you already know, is that in the english language we usually use "er" to indicate the person performing the action of verb. Therefore, someone who "teabag(s) the liberal dems" would be the teabagger.
