Upon first glance an anthill or a beehive may seem chaotic and unorganised, and the same is true for American football. But the spectacle of sprinting figures, spiralling balls and crashing helmets and pads, is actually so well-choreographed and disciplined, that the sport has earned the nickname 'the human chess-game'.
Football is truly a sport for everyone. It invites players of all sizes and speeds. It combines creativity and planning. It demands physical as well as mental capacity. And it allows brutal collisions, stunning acrobatic catches and pinpoint accurate throws.
In many ways Football is the evolution of team sports, the new frontier. Welcome to this wonderful game.
In this part of our site, you can learn more about the fascinating sport, and hopefully make more sense of the anthill.
If you're entirely new to the sport, we suggest you start at Football basics to learn the ground rules.
You'll also find articles about the NFL where the worlds best players play, the development and status of football in Europe and even flag football, footballs low contact cousin.
To get up close to the action go to the pages devoted to the many different positions. Each describes in detail the characteristics and responsibilities of the position.
And since football above all is a game of strategy, we will give you a thorough introduction into the leading offensive and defensive strategies.
