Grid Iron Rules
American football – Gridiron – is very different to our football codes in Australia. In order for you to place a bet on a Gridiron game and understand the Gridiron results, it is necessary to know a number of basic rules and terms.
Like with any other sporting game, your mission is to get more points than your opponent. You can either score by kicking the football over the goal or by carrying it across. There are a number of different scores you can make that add to the Gridiron results. These basics include: touchdowns; conversions; safety; and field goals. Touchdowns are when the opposite team has the ball and crosses the other team’s goal line. This is worth six points. The conversion is when there has been a touchdown and the team is provided with another opportunity to score again. This can be done via a kick over the goal post (one point) or a pass or run (two points). The safety is when the side that is defending tackles the person carrying the ball from the other side in the defending side’s end zone. This is two points. There is also a field goal where a team kicks the ball between the goals and above the uprights. This is three points.
To actually get the ball down to the goal posts, a side is given four opportunities – otherwise known as downs – to get the ball ten yards ahead. If they are successful, the team starts the four opportunities all over again and so on and so on. Prior to these four opportunities, the team forms a huddle. This is the meeting you see taking place on the field whereby the quarterback gives a detailed description of what the play will be.
The types of play that you may see in Gridiron are the offensive lineman; running backs (fullback and tailback); quarterback; and receiver. The offensive linemen is when five team members are used to defend the player who has the ball or needs time to pass the ball. The fullback is the big man of the team. He charges straight ahead and is the one you often see with players hanging from him. The tailback is the track star and is used for his running abilities during plays. While the quarterback often begins the plays and then passes it to another team member.
