American football game rules

The attacking team has four times to find a way to get the ball going towards the part of the other team that gets 10 yards (each yard is 0.91 meters long). If after four times of playing without reaching 10 yards, it is imperative to give the ball back to the other team.

After that, your team will have to replace all attacking players with 11 defensive players while the other team does the opposite.

If the team is able to reach 10 yards once in their four turns of attacking, they will get four more turns. As such, if the attacking team sends the ball to the opponent’s bottom line, it gets 6 points – called a “Touch down“. After each score, 7 points (Touch down) and 3 points (Field goal), the team must return the ball to the other team by kicking it from the middle of the field towards the other team. After that, two teams exchange the turn.

There are two big football tournaments in the United States including professional NFL (National Football League) and the amateur (College Football) of universities competing with each other.

Accordingly, World American Football has agreed to accelerate the four-year law cycle, in which member associations propose changing ideas, and France will hold a symposium on injury prevention for 2 days 19 and 20.3, with the participation of health professionals, coaches, and technical experts to promote “building welfare rules for players rather than building meaningful laws for the welfare of players “.

American football – one of the most dangerous sports!

There are many dangerous sports in the world, but saying American football is one of the most dangerous sport is not exaggerating at all. Any professional player must accept a career risk because of the injury it causes.

American football players hardly avoid a broken hand dangling from their shoulders, breaking their fingers and toes, dislocating their ankles or shoulders, etc. Some injuries can affect their health for the rest of their lives, some can be deep in the brain that will only develop 15-20 years later, which may paralyze the body of the player. Foolish, but it is American football!

AMERICAN FOOTBALL - ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS SPORTS!

American football is one of the most popular team sports. This game is closely related to Canadian rugby but there are some differences in game rules. In the US, some of the main forms of rugby are high school rugby, college football and professional rugby, essentially the same but different at some points in the rules of the game.

Rugby comes from high schools and universities in the United States. The first match of this game is said to take place on November 6, 1869, between the two college teams Rutgers and Princeton. The game was under the rules of primitive American football that players can only throw the ball without running with it.

By the 1870s, universities began to apply new rules for American football, which allowed players to run balls. By 1880, Walter Camp – who was considered the father of American football – wrote the standard rule of modern football in America today.

American football, somehow, is rather dangerous that even US President Barack Obama expressed concern about its violence. He once said that if he had a son, he would have to think “very carefully and for a long time” before allowing him to take part in this kind of physical education.
