Little Known Secrets About Football

When the game gets into crunch time (around 4:00 in the 4th quarter) and the score is close, the underdog team will gain super-human powers when they possess the ball to reach 1st downs on every other play. This skill would be very handy in the other 3 quarters of the game, but it is only possible to utilize it at the end of a game, and only if you are losing.

The REDO Call
Whenever a ridiculously long play happens, or a game winning pass or kick is made, the referees always make up an excuse to redo it. They either throw a flag out onto the field and make up some reason for some little insignificant touch on the play, or overrule the call with some other inane notion. The reason behind this? Quite simply, they have an innate desire to let losing fans renew their hope, and winning fans' dreams to be shattered.

In conclusion, only watch football during the last 5 minutes of the 4th quarter, and never believe a touchdown run without a flag called.
