    I have noticed that the main skill of the game is 360 degree vision which goes against the physical attributes of a human (forward-facing predator). It is a game which requires players to have a prey-like hyperawareness as well as a predator-like instinct for weaknesses in structure of the enemy team. The only predator of the game is the goalkeeper as he never has to look behind himself, and yet despite this -strangely- he has the most defensive position in the game.

    Please contribute your own intellectual observances about the game.

    It seems to be a game of two halves.
