    YOUR ONE STOP TO TALK ABOUT AMERICAN FOOTBALL. TALK ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE TEAM OR TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SPORT. THIS IS NOT A PLACE TO DISCUSS FOOTBALL (SOCCER) OR RUGBY!

    It's fine to be competitive here, but this thread is NOT an excuse to shitpost about other teams, troll, flame, or otherwise be a fucking cunt. Got it? Good.

    Old thread closed, it's Super Bowl gameday and there's no discussion going on. I have no idea how to layout this OP as sexy as the last one was, so bear with me.

    [release]American Football, a sport created and popularized in America, remains the #1 sport in America since 1920. Most other country's do not play it nationally, and the sport get's dogged on most due to both it's name and it's use of pads (more on that later).[/release]
    [release]How The Game Is Played
    The game is played with 2 teams going against each other. One team is on Offence and one team is on Defense. A coin flip at the beginning of the game decides who get's the ball first, and who get's it at the 3rd period.

    The goal is to have the most point after four 15-minute quarters. The offence's job is to score points in any way possible, and the defense's goals is to stop the offence from doing so. The offence has four tries to move the ball 10 yards. At 4th down, they can punt (Kick it to other team for them to go on offence wherever the ball is kicked), field goal it (Attempt to kick it for 3 points. If they fail, the other teams get's the ball where they kicked it from), or go for it (If they don't get it, the other team get's the ball wherever the ball is)

    Scoring Chart
    Touchdown - 6 points
    PaT (Point after Touchdown) - 1 point
    Field Goal - 3
    Safety (Tackling someone in their own touchdown, the tackling team get's the points AND the ball. This is a rare occurrence) - 2[/release]
    [release]History
    In 1920 representatives of several professional American football leagues and independent teams founded the American Professional Football Conference, soon renamed the National Football League. The first official championship game was held in 1933. By 1958, when that season's NFL championship game became known as "The Greatest Game Ever Played", the NFL was on its way to becoming one of the most popular sports leagues in the United States. The merger with the American Football League, agreed to in 1966 and completed in 1970, greatly expanded the league and created the Super Bowl, which has become the most-watched annual sporting event in the United States.[/release]

    Idk its probably cause Tony Romo is not a solid quarterback and Cowboys are my team, making the Giants our rivals. Well Eli is just on a roll I guess, the Giants can almost catch everything with either single,double and maybe even triple coverage so this game is going to be interesting nevertheless.

    It's being aired live here in Norway, but as they won't show the cool American commercials I probably won't watch it.

    I completely forgot about the commercials. I can not wait for them, since my team's not playing. I'll just be playing Xbox and tuning in on my other TV in the background.
