    This has been there since 1972 and it's just now newsworthy? Did I read that wrong?

    When DID we decide on 100 yds? Or - 120 really. I've heard some of that history before. Teams used to have fields of 110, 120, 130 yards. Back when the game was really about taking and 'conquering' turf

    ha - that reminded me of one time we were running sprints for rugby and our coach from new zealand (who was not a fan of american football) goes "push yourselves, this is rugby not football - 100 meters is longer than 100 yards!"

    to which somebody mumbled "yeah, by like 3 ft"

    we ran more sprints because of that ... and fun fact from google, its more like 30ft longer. who knew?

    and then I found $20

    8 man ball is played on 80 yard fields. Maybe they should go to that

    Major League Baseball teams are free to create the dimensions of their playing field. Maybe these guys are ahead of their time.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    So they're building a new scoreboard for their field that they can't play on? That's absolutely brilliant.

    Maybe they want sponsors to pony up to put their name on it so they can buy 20 extra yards?
