you aren't missing much...60 minute game, takes 3+ hrs to play and there is about 11 minutes of total play in a game...rugby is way better

Um common sense 15 minutes in each quarter is 1 hour of playing time so football is better then rugby

@shippy, yes, but the clock is often running as the players make their way to the line (Receivers and ends back back after a short run/incomplete pass, or the linemen forward after a completion), huddle, get into position, and then run a play that lasts 4 seconds.
In the end, I'd usually rather spend 2 hours to watch a 90 minute soccer match than 3.5 hours to watch a 60 minute football game. But I do still watch.

@plattitude, I'd rather watch 11 minutes of actual action with plenty of scoring than a 90 minute game of keep away that ends in a 0-0 tie. But that's just me

I don't know why you waste your time taking a quiz that you know ahead of time that you don't know the answers to. I haven't even tried taking any of the European football club quizzes, because I know it's going to be 5-10 minutes of me just typing in random names. What's the point?

I mean, if you couldn't get Stafford, I don't know that it's the game's fault.

I would've gotten Yary if the Vikings had been included in the clue. That would've been a slam dunk. I think providing the NFL team that drafted the player would detract from this quiz. As it is, you actually have to know your stuff. Quizzes shouldn't just be free 5-point sessions, IMO. I wish the approach here, in fact, was that scoring 5 points should be rare. Reserved for only those who REALLY know the topic, including really obscure facts.

I can't believe I missed Williams. As a Texans fan this is particularly egregious.

Fascinating system, and much more sustainable and fair than paying millions of pounds for teenagers, they way soccer teams do.

Fizzure's right, the way major sports teams in the US and Canada (and maybe other places, too) choose their players is an interesting process. Each year the teams take turns choosing players from a pool, usually from college or high school players who have just become eligible for the draft. Scouts from teams watch the players they are interested in and know who they want when the rounds begin. Usually the worst teams get first pick in an attempt to keep the playing field more even. The top draft picks get the highest signing bonuses, sometimes receiving millions of dollars. We have a relative who was a third-round MLB pick and he received over half a million.

You should really have a little leniency for some of these names. Patulski, Bartkowski, Matuszak

Irving Fryar was paid $10,000 to throw the Jan. 1984 Orange Bowl. There's a reason that previously-invincible Nebraska was left with having to attempt a 2-point conversion in the final minute vs. Miami, before losing, 31-30, costing Tom Osborne what would have been his first National Championship. If you doubt it for a minute, re-watch the game and keep your eye on Fryar. Also watch how, on several critical plays, certain Hurricanes' players know which way the play is going before the ball is even snapped.

Well, at least he stayed out of trouble after his playing days. Oh, wait. That's right, he went to prison in 2015 for a mortgage scam he ran with his mother.
