Is there any other sport, besides soccer, where you can't use your hands? That's the part that I don't get - how do you create a sport for humans that does not allow them to use their most achieved body part? I mean, it's a fine sport for elephants or donkeys that don't have hands...
"Touchdown" is another odd one as the ball doesn't actually need to be touched down.
https://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...0102340AAFgdmDWhen the touchdown was introduced into American football in 1876, it did not award a score; instead, it only allowed the offense the chance to kick for goal by placekick from a spot along a line perpendicular to the goal line and passing through the point where the ball was touched down, or through a process known as a "punt-out", where the attacking team would kick the ball from the point where it was touched down to a teammate. If the teammate could fair catch the ball, he could follow with a try for goal from the spot of the catch, or resume play as normal (in an attempt to touchdown the ball in a spot more advantageous for kicking).
That's unbelievable! So if Victor Cruz went back in time, he would have wait until the field goal was kicked, to see points on the board - and then do his salsa dance?
For some reason, I rarely hear anyone talk about the early days of Football, like we do baseball. Although there must have been threads on here about it?
