a term used to describe a general amount of timesomeone is in jail for. Based on the large numbers in the double digits, from the numbers on players' jerseys in the NFL. It originally was used for saying how long someone had to do time, but over the years, it has unsuccessfully been used to describe other large numbers.
Other rumor has it that it came from the scoring pattern of the actual game of football, which is a touchdown is 6 points, and a field goal following is another point, basically making every touchdown about 7 points a score, which represents the years that someone gets in jail.
Yo, did you hear about Steve going to prison? I dont know what he did, but I hear he's doing football numbers...it HAD to be bad.
