thanks - I learned a lot even though it was 3 medium length paras not
one short one! I hadn't understood that teams keep possession even
when they fall over with the ball, and that you have to make at least
10 yards progress. I will watch it with greater curiosity next time I
get the chance.
In similar detail, football is a game where two teams of 11 players
attempt to get a round ball into their opponents' goal without using
Perhaps the simplicity of the game is why it is so popular amongst
the unsophisticated hordes (of which I am a member) who dwell
dejectedly beyond the golden shores of the greatest nation on earth.
