Re: Football v American Football
That was called a tongue in cheek comment that i made.
Do not players in AF dive on to or at each other.
As for offsides. It needs to be there for sure. Just like hockey you would have "snow birds" just sitting there waiting for a shot or pass at any time. Offside is easy but gets messy when you have a serious challenge in front of the goal with a bunch of players. You just have to play yourself back onside, as in hockey.
