Have a look at Aussie rules or Rugby (league or union) now these are games of football. without being wrapped in a slumber king matteress and a bike helmet. I have tried and tried to understand the game, but it just does not cut it for me.
Lot of tuth in what you said, mamabear.
Perhaps, American Handball would be a better name for the game.
(no padding or helmets for Gaelic footballers either)

The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink and somebody to love you.
