Rugby is the most popular sport in the US, it ranks above both soccer and on par with basketball. Let’s find out about this subject to know why they like it so much.
American football is a popular and popular team sport in the United States. American football is closely related to Canadian rugby but there are some differences in rules and other characteristics. In the United States, some of the main forms of rugby are high school football, college football and professional football, which are basically the same but differ in some points from the rules.
An American football team can have up to 40-50 people, divided into 3 small teams including:
– Attack team
– The defensive team
– Mixed team or special team.
The 7 upper row include the center serve, the two sides are two giant midfielders (guard), next to the two midfielders are the two guys who are responsible for a huge (tackle) attack, and outmost are the two guys catching the ball (wide receiver).
The captain (quarterback) will stand behind the server. Behind the captain is the center back (halfback or running back) or defender (fullback).
Two tight-end buttons will stand behind between the catcher and the big butcher. Although they can use different teams depending on the situation, the number of players in the upper row must be at least 5 people.
American football rules
In terms of basic rules, the attacking team has 4 play times, and tries to get the ball to the side of the yard of your team 10 yards (each yard = 0.91 m). If you fail to progress the course 10 times after 4 games, you must give the ball to your team.
And your team will replace all defensive players, and replace 11 attacking players, and your team will do the opposite, replacing all 11 attacking players with 11 defensive players.
If you make 10 yards or more in those 4 games, you will get 4 more games. Just like that, if the attacking team gets the ball to the opponent’s baseline, they get 6 points – called a “Touch down”.
After each score, 7 points (Touch down) and 3 points (kick in – Field goal), they must return the ball to your team, by kicking the ball from the center of the field to your team. And it’s your team’s turn to attack, and your team defends. In the United States, there are two major football leagues, the NFL (National Football League) and the amateur (College Football) of universities competing against each other.
