Coaches choose the players who take the field and that can change by the second. Football is rigidly timed and will end when time is out, even if that means sudden death. A game can end in a tie if overtime is taken and no score results. Football season is during Fall. It begins in August and ends in February with the Super Bowl.
The Bad Side of the Sudden Death (Golden Goal) in Soccer The “golden goal” is a method used in association football, ice hockey and field hockey to decide the winner of games in elimination matches which end in a draw after the end of regulation time. It is a type of sudden death. Golden goal rules allow the team that scores the first goal during extra time to be declared the winner. The game finishes when a golden goal is scored. Introduced formally in 1992, though with some history before that, the rule was abandoned from the majority of FIFA authorized games in 2004.
This is why the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has implemented the helmet to helmet contact rule. This rule states that a player cannot hit another defenseless player in the helmet with his helmet. This rule was designed to eliminate injuries like a concussion, however it is this rule that seems to be eliminating a lot of the games original grit and toughness. I feel there are certain situations in which the helmet to helmet contact rule is justified, however in the 2010 NFL season I believe there were enough of these penalties called to potentially challenge the integrity of the game. The increased size, speed, and strength of the athletes in the NFL is greatly attributing to the rise in concussions and other head injuries.
There are also a lot of differences in the actual "game-play" rules. For example, college football does not allow instant replays to overturn a referee's call on the field, whether it is requested from the coach or the referee himself. On the other hand, this is completely acceptable in professional ball where coaches are allowed two replay challenges per half of game, and in the last two minutes, all replays have to be requested from the referees. Another rule difference is when a player is actually ruled down and the play over. In college ball, the ball carrier is down as soon as he hits the ground.
In the college game there is a lot more experimentation and trickery. This is due to the fact that college players are less experienced mentally as well as physically and therefore less capable of adapting to certain situations. This often translates to more exciting and higher scoring games. Large comebacks, big plays, and an abundance of highlights are often seen in college much more than the NFL. The NFL style of play is methodical and efficient.
But the best of them I would say is the college level or National College Athletics Association (NCAA) league; it's the meat and potatoes of it all. College football is where it started, not high school or the NFL. Even so, some folks may ask, is college football really necessary? Is the physical and possible mental damage really worth it just for some fun? The possible injuries that a College player could be induced with are astronomical every time he steps on the field.
The concept of the game revolves around 2 teams, each consisting of 15 players, observing fair play, carrying, passing, kicking and grounding the oval shaped ball to score points . At the end of 80 minutes, the team with the most points is considered as the winner. AMERICAN FOOTBALL The sport was formerly “Rugby Football” and in the mid 20th Century, got codified in the United States of America and came to be known as American Football. The change came about due to the fact that the sport was causing too many casualties amongst the players. To ensure safety of the players, safety gear was made mandatory for the players and helmets were introduced to avoid injuries to the players head.
The very first similarity between football and war is that they both have “players” that participate in the battle. Both in football and in a war or battle there are two opposing sides. A battle might have three opposing sides but that is a rare occurrence. After the “battle” ends between the opposing sides, one side ultimately emerges as a victor or winner while the other side is defeated. They both have the same objective and that objective is to defeat the other side.
Although payments to players were considered unsporting and dishonourable and even though PAC had suspicions it was kept a secret for years. After almost 80 years the Pro Football Hall of Fame received and displayed a document of an expense accounting sheet of the Allegheny Athletic Association, also known as “the birth certificate of pro football.” Therefore pro football made its way after more than 100 years of being invented, as an official professional sport. The game of American football caught on quickly, having intercollegiate teams in over 43 universities in 1900. Although the game became very popular it started to cause controversy because of all the violence in the sport, many players
This year playing football for Springfield is not the same as last year in high school because I’m not as close with the people on my college team. Last year we had so many exciting games being the top team in New York. I specifically remember the game--we played St. Anthony’s to open up the season. I remember that game perfectly like it happened yesterday. St. Anthony’s usually beats us, but it’s a close game every single time.
