Hi everyone !!!


Welcome to the party. The show's about to start. So grab a seat, some snacks and root for your favorite team. If you're not a fan of American football that's okay too. You're welcome to post about anything you want. (T&C applies). Tell us what you're doing. What food you prepared. Who's your favorite team in the NFL. Which team do you want to win. Or just post a comment about what's on your mind right now.

I was just sitting here at home about to watch the game. I'm watching the game by myself this year. Since I usually talk about conspiracies and annoy my friends and family. I figured I would come here to ATS instead. That way I can watch the game and still talk about conspiracies without annoying everybody in the room. It's always better to watch the game with friends though.

I'm a lifelong 49'ers fan. Let's get this party started ......... GO NINERS

Just tuned into it on BBC2 here if any Brits are interested.

I'd better go see what is in the fridge for the game, that seems to be the tradition isn't it?.

Even though I'm a Texans fan I shall be rooting for the 49ers, mainly because I think Flacco is a doofus and I'm rooting AGAINST him!

The game menu consists of honey barbecue wings, pizza, cheese and cracker snacks, cherry and cream cheese danishes and red wine.

I am watching the game alone for the first time this year as it didn't feel right having the usual party with hubby out of town, but I will be razzing him via text each time SF scores (he is originally from Maryland and therefore a "frenemy" during football season).

Ha ha, I like your style OP.
Turn the tables completely.

This year, instead of bugging football fans with conspiracy theories you have decided to bug conspiracy theorists with football.


Only joking, not a sports fan myself but enjoy the event. Its midnight on this side of the world so goodnight football fans, have fun.

I can try to give you a basic explanation and feel free to ask any questions.

Each team has 11 players. They flip a coin to see who gets the ball first. The game starts with what's called "The kick off". The team who won the coin flip chooses to kick or receive in the first half and when the second half starts the other team will kick off.

After the kick off, the first object is to try to move the ball a minimum of 10 yards to get a "first down". The team with the ball get 4 tries to move the ball 10 yards. Each try is called a "down". They have the option to throw the ball or run the ball on each try. If a team gets 10 yards they get 4 new tries to make it another 10 yards.

There are a few ways to score. But the two main ways are to get a "touchdown" worth 6 points by throwing the ball or running it across the goal line. If they score a touchdown they get to try for an extra point by kicking the ball between the goal post. The next way top score is a field goal. worth 3 point. If they kick the ball between the goal post. After a team scores they must "kick off" to the other team.

Sounds yummy. I made steak tacos and roasted chicken.


I was born and raised in San Francisco. But I actually lived in Baltimore for a year. When I lived in Baltimore they didn't have a football team. Their old team the Colts had moved to Indianapolis.

If the 49'ers weren't in the superbowl I might be watching that too.

"3rd and 4" means 3rd down (third out of 4 tries to advance 10 yards) and 4 yards left to make it to the 10 yard mark.

The game time is 15 minutes per quarter for a total of 60 minutes on the game clock.

The actual time it takes is usually about 3 hours.

Half time should be in about 1 hour.

Thank you.


Probably sounds stupid, but it's little things like that which have always put me off watching to game more in the past because i just didn't get it.

I made a vow to change that this year though, so any help is most appreciated.

There are 4 fifteen minute "quarters" in the game with a half time break in the middle. The actual time varies however due to the time clock stopping for various reasons (dead ball, time out, challenge, injury, etc.) and should the game be tied at the end it will go into overtime.

My friend, you're not alone. A fellow Brit right here. I understand the game, but I remember the times trying to learn. Here's a little tip and yeah, it is stupid but It's how I learnt how to play and understand the rules etc... Buy Madden. It's basically their version of Fifa for us.

Seriously, it works, and especially as it's not often on TV. How you liking the game so far this year too, you have a team you're rooting for?
