American football (Gridiron football)

Postby draconaut » Fri Jul 25, 2014 7:44 am

Do you think retired footballers (soccer players) especially goalkeepers/set piece specialists can be good punters or placekickers? :mrgreen:

I've always wondered about this. There have been a few punters (from Australia) with a rugby background who've had successful careers in the league.
To me, it makes perfect sense. I would think 50+ yard field goals would be a breeze for a former footballer. Also, there are former NFL kickers who've played into their late 40's.
There is the obvious difference in the ball but I can't see how it would be that hard of a transition. Maybe it's the fear of having to tackle on kick-offs or punts. NFL players whom primarily play on special teams are truly psychotic! :P

Kickers don't tackle on kickoffs right? Do you think that 3 points is a bit low for a field goal?Maybe 4 points? :mrgreen:

It doesn't happen often but, if the returner breaks thru the first wave of defenders the kicker has to ATTEMPT to make a tackle. It can be quite amusing to see. :P

3 points is okay with me. Although, the point may be moot in the no-so-distant future. The NFL seems to pushing for the elimination of kickers and punters from the game completely. They say that kickers are defenseless when on the field. :roll: I guess because they aren't 300lb behemoths they are considered too fragile. There is a saying in the NFL that kickers/punters are NOT football players, they are kickers. Funny to me that they get so little respect when it's the kickers who decide many, many games.

Now? It's great, i enjoy watching it even more then most soccer games ( ofcourse i watch all the Bayern games ). But that sport has a soft spot in my heart aswell. The crowds, the fast paced action, the drama etc.

What a bullsh*t.. Just because with rugby they dont use the pads and stuff? Ever heard of safety awareness? Anyway, AF 100 times over rugby. Rugby is not nearly as exciting compared to AF.

And btw, if there is any sport, that should be called ''pussy sport'' with all their divas, it's soccer ;)

I agree with Ottomeister13 that the game is great! With the league-wide resurgence of the passing game and the new rules the make defending the pass really difficult the game is as exciting (to watch) as it's ever been. Add the fact that parity has become the norm and you have the drama of never really knowing who will win. I think the game is in pretty good shape. At least right now....

Pittsburgh Steelers, well, they aren't my big time favo's anymore, because the management just sucked the last couple of years when it comes to getting new players, keeping players and trading the wrong ones and that resulted in missing the playoffs the last 2 season's. All time player of that team is Hines Ward for me, atleast for the recent history ;)

The team i am way more into are the 49ers.. One reason is ofcourse the great city of San Fransisco, but the team really has some awesome players, big talent and just an awesome QB in Kaepernick :D
