Never played gridiron but have seen it on TV. Iam a big AFL fan and did play when I was in high school. Now I like to watch and kick the footy with my kids. You would be suprised how well my other half can kick. She has got a good boot on her.

warren sapp in his prime weighed 300+ and ran a 4.6 40. thats insane. (that means he ran 40 yards in 4.6 seconds. in case you didnt know what 4.6 40 meant)

i think the game needs a name change. lets call it gridiron.

Well if you do decide to go to amercian football game I strongly recommend going to game with two of the better teams, I went to an Arizona Cardinals, Jets match and man was it a tedious pile of horse manure but I followed that up last xmas with a Greenbay Packers/Raiders game and it was a totally different experience.
