Nice. Thanks for posting.
The Cosell vomiting incident was at Franklin Field during an Eagles-Giants MNF game. It was the first time the Eagles ever appeared.
I was in attendance.
I knew #2, just not the reasoning given. Just assumed a forfeit resulted in a 2-0 score because it was the lowest possible final score a game could have.
Also knew #10.
Man number 6 is crazy!
Three guess what current 2nd yr LB, #5 made me think of.
Urgh, the '11 minutes of actual playing' argument that I always see from soccer (better called 'divegrass') fans. NFL presnap activity isn't 'just 'standing there', even if the TV camera is focused on a QB who is not moving much. Other players are running around to position and on and off the field as subs. Entire defensive and offensive looks change before the snap. Its more intense and focused action than the jogging that most of a soccer team (the ones away from the ball)does in any typical minute.
You rarely see all 11 soccer players in action all at once. Some of them are standing around waiting for play to enter their zone.
In football, sure the players stop and set each play. But once the ball is snapped, everyone is doing something.
It's not so much the 11 minutes of playing time - it's the drama for the 35 seconds before each play that keep fans glued to their screens
