In both soccer and rugby, one of the first laws of both games is that the referee is the sole judge of fact and law (I used to be a ref for both games). Has to be that way, or you'd end up with anarchy on the pitch. Rugby does now have the "fourth official", a video feed to which the ref can turn if he is unsure. Only used in point scoring situation to determine if a ball has been grounded for a try, or as in the fiasco yesterday, whether the ball has passed through the posts for a conversion. It wouldn't be feasible to review every decision made, the game would go on for hours!
A pity that the final result cannot be overturned once the video is
viewed at the end of the game. Sadly, present day refereeing throws doubt on the credibility of the game. Can understand the frustration of the players, which then paints the player in a poor light. Highly unfair.

Yes indeedy. We have trendy peak caps for the blokes...not to be worn with the peak at the back please...lol...and trendy peak caps for the gals, difference being, the gals are pink. The 'float' covered the cost, so collect one as you come in the door....
and have a great Monday Dear Luke.

A missing post here was mine as I offered an answer to why we Americans call our game 'football'. Topix gave me a warning about offensive, profanity, etc and etc with the reply box but for the life of me I could not fathom why it was objectionable so 'sent' it anyway. They win, of course.
So, another try do I (amended a bit to bypass the censor):
"American football" is technically gridiron football; but, it's not just American either. There is Canadian rules gridiron football and there is Australian rules gridiron football. Months ago here I linked in a Wikipedia article on gridiron football. Wikipedia could be referred to for a refresher. If I remember correctly, there is some attachment of this form with Celtic/Irish football, and first people games in America, South America, South Pacific, etc.
Yardage increments must be gained within a certain number of chances to continue possession; the end destination is the goal line for a touchdown.
In the very old days of gridiron football, running plays were the mainstay of yardage gain. This and other aspects have some commonality with rugby; not just the huddling (lol), but also when most plays start the opposing players are lined up in proximity to each other, scrums when a gridiron runner is tackled and/or the ball is fumbled.
As with rugby, there are kicking plays; i.e., punting, but other kicking plays too. A team can score, though fewer points than a touchdown, by kicking the ball through a space between two post segments in the end-zone where touchdowns are scored.
In context of other stick and ball sports played in U.S, this game involves kicking; hence, football for short.
Beautifully described, thanks Luke, there is a similarity between the two obviously.
I would be very interested to know what constitutes Celtic/Irish football....it's the same as English footie surely?

Good afternoon/evening to the fine folks in the kitchen. I've been out a couple of days, ill yesterday and still somewhat queasy today. But reading the last hundred plus posts since I've been gone, it dawned on my how good a read it is.
El you have a great group of folks here.
I'm feeling a little panicked, my oldest daughter is set to go into full labor with her firstborn at any time, and I can't go to the hospital until I'm symptom-free. That means not today, and am praying she doesn't go today or tonight.
Been watching birds.
Hopefully my Colts will trounce the Patriots in their house, today!
Y'all have a great Sunday!
Paise....do hope you are feeling much better by now, sorry to hear you have been so unwell. Any news as yet? It's an exciting time, she'll be fine, and plenty of time to see new baby...just get yourself well. A new baby in time for Thanksgiving....your family is blessed indeed.
Please keep us posted Paise, hope all goes smooth as can be.

Good Morning All our Kitchen friends,
been up a while, the weather has been atrocious overnight, had intended going to see 'Skyfall' this afternoon, but 60 mph gales on the coast road...will take a raincheck, thanks.
Nothing in comparison on recent weather in US realise that, but a few trees are down so safer at home methinks.
Have you got the same weather Grace?
The lead up to Thanksgiving, I am giving thanks for such good friends here, and for the roof over my head in todays current clime....

A-l-r-i-g-h-t...tea and toast with marmalade coming up, coffee if you prefer, funny story attached to coffee, buy a jar at Tescos, get 10p a litre off fuel, checked prices elsewhere, actually more expensive at other supermarkets, bought three jars! Get the new car a week tomorrow, so can fill up making quite a saving and enough Nescafe Gold for the Winter months for allcomers!

Have a lovely day everyone.

Strange you should say, El,

the same here and more gales expected,
altho' last night I was out for a walk with
Ali, it wasn't raining just then but very windy
[we had heavy rain later]

Under amber street lamps,
pale yellow leaves were flying in every direction
and the pathway was carpeted in yellow and red;

as we live higher up,
the winking and twinkling of city lights
in the distance
made a magical backdrop for all this,

It felt like being in a fairytale,
maybe Little Red-riding H(:

and Ali, so easily cast,
as the handsome black wolf with the
pearly snarly teeth! LOL...

'Stop daydreaming Grace, and get on with the day'

Good Day to everyone here.

Happy happy day all Kitchen patrons!

Be safe & well El & Grace. Hope that poor weather passes. Amazing what can happen in a short spell and then it's over.

Here's wishing the folks on this side of the pond a lovely Thanksgiving filled with good food, the love of family and friends, and all else to be thankful for.

Those not celebrating I wish you the same and safe, peaceful holiday season.

Be well & stay well all!

Thank you for kind wishes! I am feeling MUCH better today. She is at her doctor now, we'll maybe know more in a bit. Her other two siblings are crossing their fingers it's today or at the latest tomorrow. Being the oldest, with a 'super-responsibility complex', her two younger siblings have both commented,
"I'm praying she has it by Tuesday, so she doesn't ruin our Thanksgiving!" LOL! Of course they're only a little serious about that.
Mom-to-be is the assistant director of early child development at a private school here, I'm looking forward to seeing how the 'expert' does with her own baby. Her younger sis has two young children and has tried to warn her that it's much harder than it looks. Her older sis insists she has it in hand, she's ready and it'll be a snap! She's ready to do it all, perfectly, LOL!....I know once the 'freight train' hits her and knocks her for a loop, she'll gather her wits, readjust, and be a great mother.
It'll be fun to see this play out. Like the younger sis said to her,
"You'll be in some sleepless, screaming nightmare and mom will have a huge smile on her face, the whole time."
