Except you can throw it forward. As long as you've not passed the line or scrummage. After which you can only throw it backwards. Not that anyone ever does.

And the best bit is there is an Aussie in the Superbowl for the first time, Arizona Punter Ben Graham was a Aussie Rules star who could boot the ball a mile, retired here and went to the US, has had a rough season and was sacked 3 times before falling on his feet in Arizona, he has gone from uneployed to the Superbowl in 6 weeks!
I really enjoy watching it, but it's a pain staying up when you have to get up for work at 6:30.
I actually went to one of the NFL games at Wembley, Miami Dolphins V New York Giants, and it's such a different style of sport than watching football. Although it's pretty painful watching my beloved Hull City at the moment.
Our Uni had a good American football team which I went to one of the training sessions, but I didnt really know the positions and ended up getting shouted at.
Hopefully can get a good offer for a small wager (matched of course)
That was amazing, i enjoyed that so much! If every game is like that im about to become a big fan.
Have a plan and stick to it
Great finish to the game!
Strangely, my wife and I are sleeping in the living room right now, since we're decorating the bedroom. So after I logged off last night I left the TV on and watched a little more of the game. Of course it was only a few minutes later that Arizona got the safety and then I was hooked in to watching the rest of the game
What a finish, that last touchdown was totally amazing, how Holmes caught that ball and managed to keep both feet inbounds was incredible.
And the Steelers managed to win, which busted me out of Betjoint, Cris and diamond all in one! Profit for Feb is already looking solid.
Like some of you, I don't know much about the game but wow, that was some proper excitement! Watching that guy intercept, run the whole length of the pitch and then collapsing for 5 minutes was hilarious.
I watched last years superbowl too and that was exciting, but this one was even better. The radio5 commentary was really funny too, a late night well spent!
