    For a start the balls are completely different shape


    Also American Football is a lot more complicated than soccer.

    Could be here a long time.

    On a basic level just imagine American Football as rugby with the forward pass and more relaxed tackling rules and you'll get the gist.

    American football tackling rules becoming ridiculous. Soon it will become flag football.

    Still head high hits and the like are still allowed in the main, provided it's not on the QB, which wouldn't be in rugby.

    The rules on hitting the QB are getting ridiculous, but the NFL exists to make profit and the franchise QBs are worth too much to Goodell not to protect.

    Aye I guess its true but its just getting crazy how much harder it is for defences now without getting penalized.

    Yeah, though it does make it more exciting to watch. Then again maybe with the Ravens doing it last year and KC looking strong this year it can be proved you can still win it all without a top 10 QB under centre and strong defence.

    An absolute farce of a decision.

    Anyone else watch the Iron Bowl last night?

    I know the standard's not as high as the NFL but it was great drama.

    There were a couple of high drama games last night. I can't believe Michigan went for 2 points and lost (yay) or the comeback by Georgia!

    I missed the OSU-UM game, sounded like an absolute classic though. Hopefully some of the championship games should be of similar, probably not Duke-FSU though!

    Saw that return. Wish I watched it now. Trying to find a reply.

    I want to agree with you guys about the tackling but then concussion and players committing suicide puts me in goddell's side.

    I imagine the Orange Bowl's absolutely loving life right now, looks like it might get Alabama-Oregon after year's of being the ugly sister of BCS season.

    Saying the, the NC's going to be a bit duller now, can't see this OSU defense keeping FSU at bay unless Winston does get charged before then.
