Nothing surprising there for an ex Aircrewman then.
The Steelers "should" win, Caridnals are very much the underdog.
Rules are easy, have to make at least 10 yards in 4 attempts, cant throw the ball infront of the "line of scrimmage", (ie where they stand. Laterals, (rugby style sideways or behind passing) are allowed but they dont do that often. Guys facing each other cannot move once they are "set". Only 1 guy on offense can move, all the defence backs can. No argy barging if you havent got the ball. Penalties range in yardage due to the "severity" of the offence commited. Yes it takes a while, live it goes a lot quicker.
My team, Tampa bay Buccaneers, where the game is on today, play at Wembley later this year. Last years game there was packed!
well it was a great game with drama right til the end. Steelers won as everyone thought they would but it was very very tight. Commercial breaks. Thats what pays for the free TV. Whats your TV licence fee now huh!
And the breaks allow you to get a beer/pee/eat some wings etc etc.
Biggest laugh I get is the diving, cheating, errrr Gerard on Sunday etc oh and the tiny little tap on the foot and they go rolling around screaming in agony, then 5 secs later up and running. Cheating thats all it is.
I have never and dont know anyone who has seen that in American football. EVER.
Bunch of poofs! Tell it to a line backers face..........who's the girl now then
"Rounders" care to stand 50 ft infront of a ball coming towards you at over 100 mph and try and hit it? Look at all the padding they wear in cricket now. All they wear in Baseball is a shin pad and a helmet. So who's the girly man.
Rugby, shoulder pads and helmets are also worn.
Game goes on for too long..........WTF, obviously youve never heard of a 5 day test then have you numb nuts.
BUT am just giving a return perspective on the "its just rounders", "theyre all poofs" comments, which lets face it, are just silly.
If you dont like a sport, dont mank n moan, dont watch it, say something positive for a change.
My American friends watch footie and just cannot understand the amount of diving, cheating and rolling around when the get a little tap on the ankles. And as for the diving.........jeez, dont start me there.
One guy made referance to the padding........seen what a cricketer wears when a fast bowler is in! Ice hockey, ever been hit by a puck in the goolies or smashed against the barriers..........
Remember Stirling, the whinging POM is alive n well on RR
