    Wanted to know how the game is played. Thanks for that. I've never heard of such a vast amount of mini technicalities in a sport.. Wondering where the excitement is 🤔🤔🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️. I think I'll stick to the best game in the world - Football (Soccer).

    What are some ways to improve your soccer game? I read lots of good opinions on the internet about how Episoketren System can help you improve your soccer technique. Has any one tried using this popular training program?

    Here's what he is saying for all of you:
    American football is a game played on a one-hundred-yard field by two teams of eleven players. In the NFL, squads of fifty-three players make up each side's offensive, defensive, and special teams units that take turns on the field. The aim of the game is to move the ball into the opponent's end zone to score a touchdown. And an extra point. This is achieved by moving the ball down the field in a series of plays, or, fouls. They can do this easily by passing the ball through the air from quarterback, to receiver, or by a running back rushing the ball along the ground. The offense must move the ball at least ten yards down the field every four plays in order to keep the possession of the ball and earn another four downs to drive towards the opponent's end-zone. If the defense prevent them making these ten yards, the team with the the ball must either run towards possession of the ball to the opposition, or if close enough attempt to kick the ball between the upright posts. After four fifteen minutes of play, the team with the most points wins the game.

    I'm a girl in highschool class of 2022, and I wanna play football. I managed football and my love for it grew from there. I had loved watching the sport beforehand but becoming a manager and watching the practices and process made me more immersed than ever I fell in love with the game and team. I'm determined to ready myself not just physically but mentally understanding the game by book. I'm a little intimidated and scared since I'm small and oblivious at the moment but I'll try my hardest!

    Hi, I live in South Korea and I wonder if I may use this video to explain football in Korean.
    Many Asian countries only think football = soccer.
    But I hope more people get to know and enjoy the American football because it's fun!!!

    Why do they use terms like "yards" on this video? People who don't know American football are not Americans, and thus don't use American measuring units.

      Early American football was very much like rugby. There was no forward passing of the ball. I'm sure the sports have similar origins.

    Brit here. I've always been interested but still haven't seen a game and the rules are hard to read (dyslexic) so need visual examples.
    Hopefully I'll get to see a game someday, when I'm back over (if I can afford it). If they do the NFL in London again, it'd be cheaper for me to fly over to the states. London and traveling there from the North of England is insanely expensive.

      Most people are scared. Try out. The worst that can happen is you don't make the team, and you'd be in the exact same position you'd be in if you hadn't tried out.
