American football, known in the United States simply as football and sometimes as gridiron outside the United States and Canada, is a sport played between two teams of eleven. The objective of the game is to score points by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone. The ball can be advanced by running with it or throwing it to a teammate. Points can be scored by carrying the ball over the opponent's goal line, catching a pass thrown over that goal line, kicking the ball through the opponent's goal posts or tackling an opposing ball carrier in his own end zone.

1 I enjoy football quite a bit. I don't hold allegiance to any particular team. Don't get me wrong there are teams I like and teams I don't. But for the most part I just like the sport and competition. I will admit I miss the smash mouth style of play, there are too many ridiculous penalties, and instant replay is annoying as hell. Sadly, these problems plague all, well at least, American sports. Oh and to those who might actually think a helmet makes you invincible, um no, not in the least bit. Play smart and keep self-preservation in mind. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 13, 2011, 8:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Kingbk, congrats on TCU's excellent season. I've been following them since I became a fan of alum LaDainian Tomlinson. It will be nice to see them move to the Big East and get some serious East Coast respect. As for what my Duck status tells DolFan about me, I'll assume he's referring to my fondness for beer and leave it at that......

3 Soggy, I was heartbroken that your Ducks didn't take down Newton and Auburn. I get so tired of hearing about how great the SEC is and it would have been a nice change of pace. Then again, lately it's been fun for me being a football fan, as my TCU Horned Frogs have proven that mid majors are worth more credit than they are due. College football has issues, as does the NFL, but I still prefer watching college. Now only if they get this playoff issue resolved... -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 11, 2011, 12:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 An old Oregon Duck? That explains a lot, actually :-) But that's my whole point--all the corruption and hypocrisy has overwhelmed the games themselves. One literally can't watch a game these days without hearing about the other stuff, and now it's taken center stage and reached a point I cannot ignore. The Fiesta Bowl fiasco, the government finally realizing what a farce the BCS is, certain schools allowed to get away with rampant rulebreaking while others get the book thrown at them simply for not being a member of the "right" conferences, the Cam Newton thing, all of that was just too much for me to take. And as long as everyone else accepts it the problems will only get worse until one day even you won't be able to sweep them under the rug. Just like with America itself, things can only keep degenerating for so long before the bottom drops out. Just look at what's happening to the NFL right now for the proof of that. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 11, 2011, 5:22 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I don't deny that there are problems, and of course I agree regarding the BCS structure. But when you set all that stuff aside and focus on the games themselves, and on the excitement of the season, and on the character of the young men on the field (for the most part), I'll take college football over the NFL any day. (But I'm an old Oregon Duck, so I reckon I'm just a tad biased here.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 1:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 STRONGLY disagree with that. College football has definitely boned in my eyes due to the rampant, institutionalized cheating and the ludicrously selective punishments by the NCAA, not to mention a BCS system so ludicrous that now even the government has finally seen fit to notice. Last season was indeed the last season for me of watching. I don;t even care if the NFL has no season this year, I cannot bring myself to enable the corrupt, amoral and horrible joke college football has become. I feel ashamed for having been an enabler as long as I was. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 10, 2011, 7:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 College football will never bone. Pro football might be a different story. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 10, 2011, 1:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
