  1. I've played the game since i was a kid, so i have at least 25 years in football…real football not the "i call it football yet i use my hands football" and i can tell…most kids when they are 12-16 years old can outplay these guys any day….

  2. I was born to analyse anything about games more that any sports industry around the world, is more than a spirit in my life. That's why I need sponsors to support me to have my own sports promo company.

  3. Look at him, the NFL player catch that soccer ball. Showing that dude can keep. I still had to let folks to understand that one person can play three sports n be great at it. U know why? ask I need to let guys know anybody both all players of all sports kinds don't have no excuses why they out of job . Is hilarious to hear. Once an athlete is an athlete. Sometimes we don't even know what we r good at cause we got influence in doing what others r doing. Human kind such as an athlete could be good at all sports but work ethics discouragement could kick in n u see a player crying I have lost my job. Serious ridiculous. For example, Collin kerpernic has a chance to play similar games n get used it n make same amount of money n still in the game for so long. Listen let me tell players some, do yo know sometimes why the game look super interesting? Maybe u don't know. The game look interesting cause of fans. U can play the game as u want it but when nobody whatching it, guess what ? Is boring. The most common factor that trigger the game is whose watching it. I play this game n I was born to lay down everything's n every detail why u can not sit out of the game as a sports pasionist. Cause I'm obsessed with all sports. Soon we will get to see my TV shows on ask chambersheros anything about games still get an answer.

  4. Australian rules is proper football. That was the world's first official code of football, predating association football by four years.

  5. Ironically they just proved why football is more popular than american football. Much easier to get together like this and then play it and enjoy yourself whether it's on pro or semi pro level, bunch of amateurs and children or even soccer moms and grandmas playing. Pitch can be anything of any size, goals can be anything whether backpacks or trees and even ball can be improvised though it's preferable to have real one and main goal of the game is obvious to everyone. American football it seems to me was made primarily for pro athletes to play it and for the audience to watch and analyze it. I find it hard to imagine 5 chums from workplace would get together after work to play full game of american football (not just throwing ball) in some playground or park while it is quite common in Europe for football but also basketball. When we were kids we tried to play american football just once and we ditched the rules in like 5 minutes because it just had no flow ,opting for something more akin to rugby (Friend managed to break my nose lol 😀 when we crashed at full speed into each other, so yeah not recommended without some protective gear but then again we were all scabs and bruises when we played normal football too)

  6. Okay, next time lets try a full sized pitch with more NFL players. Then lets try a full NFL pitch with football players. Entertainment & silliness guaranteed.

  7. It's actually surprising how bad their foot eye coordination is lol… Being an athlete you assume they'd have a natural grasp of most sports, but they're terrible, especially Kenny Stills and Stefon Diggs haha.

  8. If Odell was in that game it would be a crazy game. If I'm correct he actually got offered a chance to play with the U.S national soccer team.
