Well otherwise theres no point in watching, so although I can't call what the flags are going to be for (other than the red challenge flag!), I know what the overall point of the game is, and get the points scoring, and some of the lingo.

The only major difference between watching sports programmes hosted by Americans and the Brits, is the Americans MAJOR focus on statistics.

Sounds like the commentators tonight are going to be explaining EVERYTHING for the worldwide audience anyway.

pretty much. being raised around sunday night football, i know most the lingo and rules. since ive been to england more than once, im stuck watching english sports (like rugby and cricket). i actually was about halfway through the match when my dad told me there were rules invovled. i thought it was just a random desicion of when you wanted to run or not.

im bored of the game already.

Cricket; quite a boring game, it is a random decision as to whether you run or not, theres no rule saying that you HAVE to run.

Rugby, far more interesting and physical game.

As for tonights match now, first blood to the Panthers with the Pat's 31 yd FG miss.

Surely you understand basketball? Surely the simplest and most boring of all American sports.

Nothing wrong with basketball, when played well.

NCAA is by far better than NBA as there is more emphasis on the team game, rather than lots of "one man" trying to show off.

NCAA is the Uni's league, I'm waiting for March Madness, which will be fun


I don't play as it happens, however, you will appriciate the job I do.

Scorekeeper, Timekeeper, Shot Clock Operator = my title, known as a Table Official, you more than most on this board will know what that means.

I dunno if I'd bebothered to sit down and watch a game. Yeah, I probably understand some of the rules of basketball and ice-hockey, cos of movies and programmes. But give me footie any time!

Team Managers sit on the bench and make sure that the teams kit is all sorted and stuff.

A table official are the guys that sound that horn to get the subs in, run the scoresheet, and keep the score board ticking over, and making sure the 24 second shotclock is running right.

It's a nice little earner for me, by far paid back the money I spent getting qualified to do it - saves working in MacDonalds, and I get paid to watch basketball and add up the 1's, 2's and 3's, or pressing a few buttons (start/stop, reset - for the shot clock!). Easy money.
