    Offside And Goalkeeper Rule Change

It is the team sport with the highest rate of upsets, this in itself is not the problem, but the problem is that they are much too often undeserved upsets.

    2020 International Cup Divisions

    it is understandable to have divisions in order to avoid huge score differences, but i'm still disappointed that we didn't get to see Croatia play a bit tougher competition (i am of the opinion that the China game was a bit of a fluke). here is a rough draft proposal for men's divisions in the...

    Helmets And Pads Should Not Be Used

    There are 3 reasons why pads and helmets should be removed. 1. safety: helmets are the main cause of brain injuries in the sport. this is mostly due to constant bumping of helmets each play (especially lineman). if players don't wear helmets they do not naturally bump into each other in such a...

    Northern Territory At The Arafura Games

    In 1997 a team listed as the Northern Territory Football League competed against other countries. I am assuming this consisted of players from other states/territories other than Northern Territory since the league is known for having players outside of there. In 1999 a team listed as simply...
