An excellent indie rock/emo band from the 1990s, fronted by Mike Kinsella (of Owen).
Stephen: "My favorite emo band? Definitely I Hate Myself."

Bob Nastanovich: "No way, dude. American Football takes the cake."

A sport similar in origin to Rugby. As an American, I've played both, and they're both good sports. Football is a complicated game, but here are some examples of rules:

11 men on the field at a time (on offense, you need at least 7 people on the line of scrimmage, and a Quarterback to receive the snap to start every play).
Players on offense are broken down into many positions, the main ones are Quarterback, Running back, Full back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Tackle, Guard, Center.
Players on defense are broken down into 3 levels, Linemen, Linebackers, Defensive Backs. Lineman normally consist of Ends and Tackles. Linebackers usually consist of Inside and Outside Linebackers. Defensive backs usually consist of Cornerbacks and Safeties.
Teams also use kickers and punters on special teams.
The object of football is to advance the ball downfield by passing and running.
There are multiple ways to score, touchdowns (6 points), Point After Conversions (1 point), 2-point conversions (2 points), Field Goals (3 points), and Safeties (2 points).
A touchdown occurs when the ball is advanced to the endzone. After this, a team can elect to kick a point after conversion, or run a play from 2 yards out to try to pick up 2 points.
A Field Goal occurs when a team kicks the ball through the uprights.
A Safety occurs when the defensive team tackles the ball carrier inside their own endzone.
The field is 100 yards long.
The current World Champs are the New England Patriots, though the Indianapolis Colts look the strongest thus far in the season.
Tom Brady is an American Football player, David Beckham is a soccer player.

A great sport, extremely physically demanding. Many of you foreigners keep talking about how it must not hurt because there are pads, you clearly have not played the sport. I'd like to see you guys playing linebacker with a hugeass fullback coming straight at you. Without helmets, american football would be just stupid to play, especially at the line. In America, we have a name for all of you types of people saying things like "Americans are pansys," maybe you've heard of it. "Racist."
Rugby and American Football, while similar are two different sports, stop acting like they are exactly the same.

A fictional sport from the "Friday Night Lights" universe. Originally a book by H.G. Bissinger, it was also adapted into a movie and TV series. The sport itself is mostly nonsense, but an american organization, the NFL, saw fit to to interpret it for use in the real world. It is believed that the acronym NFL was created by scrambling the letters of FNL. Unlike FNL, the NFL is unscripted. This has been received negatively by critics who came to love the characterizations and plot lines in FNL. Most people are patiently awaiting the day that the NFL is cancelled and FNL is renewed.
American Football was better in the book.

One of the dumbest and most dangerous sports created, most popular in America and Canada. Players generally weigh about 300-400 pounds and slam into each other for 3 hours. I am disappointed in my fellow Americans who actually like this garbage.
The New England Patriots won the American football championship.

football is my least favorite sport but i still under stand it. lots of people ask me question like "who's the browns QB" or "whats a wide receiver do?" unfortunately i don't know these answers but i will prove my understanding in a simple equation
"American Football"

120 yards=touch down

(a)touch downs>(b) touch downs to win

because 120 yards=touch down a(120yards)>b(120yards)

now that we have our equations i will wasy touch downs=7 because they are 7 points so 120 yards=7 so yard=7/120
now we can see that a(120*7/120)>b(120*7/120)

or a(7)>b(7)
that now simplifys to a>b in other words you just need more points to win
to remove all the words from that
120y=t
at>bt
so
a(120y)>b(120y)
and because
t=7 points
y=7/120
a(120*7/120)>b(120*7/120)
a(7)>b(7)
so
a>b

Not only a game of strength, speed. but a mental game to. to everyone who thinks American football is a joke, your mistaken. It takes a long time to be not only physically ready, but mentally ready too. This game requires quick wits and above average intelligence in order to break down and read every play within a 2-3 second window. Also, offensivly, if your a runningback, u need to know snap calls.

(example: buda= on 1, Camille=on 2 ect.) also u need to know blocking calls. prior to the snap, lineman will shout out a bundle of different calls, for shift formations and such. you need to know who is doing what or the play will string out and be unsuccessful. In order to move the ball successfully on offense, all 11 men on the offense must execute there job perfectly, or it will be a broken play, and it all rely on the athletic ability of the ball handler. besides that, you have to be able to take a sever beating. i mean I'm talkin ear-ringing eye's flashing hits, ever down, which could be like 200-450 downs both ways. so instead of everyone saying footballs for pussy's or what ever u jokes say, throw on the pads. and you can at least try, you'll be in for a rude awakening
American football
offensive plays:
-pit left, flank right, 25 option load, lion, flex call split nasty right 48 pitch. on line call. (buda, Camille ect.)

defensive mentality when breaking down the offense after the snap
- is it a pitch? a dive? an iso? a bootleg? a power? an option? a screen? a power pass? a counter? is the QB dropping back? should i read the receivers? whats the line doing, are the shifting? what are the running backs doing?
