whew...after watching some close ones yesterday
me and a buddy debated close games VS other
type games...which do you prefer? close games
with only a few points between them..medium
points between them...or massacres...

if you dont follow american football you probably wont understand
the score notation...
if you run..you'll only die tired

I dont know how to play American Football but I reckon since its "rougher" than normal football I bet close ties are better.

of course its rougher than normal football! tiddlywinks is rougher than normal football. go play rugby - no padding, full contact, longer than 30 second 'plays' to use the american terminology, you cant beat it, not even with a very big stick with something pointy on the end.

closer games are always better, no matter what the game, cos they are still interesting right to the 80th minute

American football is horrible. I hate how much time is wasted doing nothing between "plays" and actually playing. You get like 10 seconds of "thrill" and then someone blows a whistle and you stop again.

The best way is to have no rules really other than get the ball to the other goal. I think this is what rugby is but im not british and I dont know.

I'm canadian and I know what rugby is :P

I played on my school rugby team in grades eight to ten, it was a lot of fun. I'd have to say though that my favorite version of football is flag football. Not because it's zero contact, but it is in my mind a LOT tougher to "bring down" the other guy.

closer than it is to normal football, but there isnt padding, you cant tackle a guy without the ball, and you can have big pile ups and continue to play afterwards!!

Isn't UK "football" called "soccer" in America?
My thanks and best regards to all my former submitters.

yeah, dont quite understand why american football is called football, as far as i know its thrown most of the time. in proper football its an offence to use your hands, unless you are the goalkeeper, re-starting the ball from the side (throw-in) or the victim of an alleged 'ball to hand' incident
