There they have a rubgy-like game, where 99% outside the US can't understand the rules - called American-Football. Best is: they even use the hands to play it (lol!!) which is strongly forbidden in real Football of course. Only the Goalkeeper is allowed to use hands - but in American Football they even don't have a goalkeeper and also the Goals are wide open...Also the ball is not round, seems damaged...it's seems, they just don't get it...
Ok, good thing is there are the "Rolling Stones"playing at the half time sometimes - nice.
You have a point Berhard. How can you use the term football when the game is played mainly with the hands? At least the original game involves the feet almost exclusively.
