American Football
AMERICAN FOOTBALL, referred to as FOOTBALL in the United States and Canada, and also known as "gridiron football " or simply "gridiron", is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field with goalposts at each end. The offense , the team with control of the oval-shaped football , attempts to advance down the field by running with or passing the ball, while the team without control of the ball, the defense, aims to stop their advance and take control of the ball for themselves. The offense must advance at least ten yards in four downs , or plays, or else they turn over the football to the opposing team; if they succeed, they are given a new set of four downs. Points are primarily scored by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone for a touchdown or kicking the ball through the opponent's goalposts for a field goal . The team with the most points at the end of a game wins

Prolate Spheroid
A SPHEROID, or ELLIPSOID OF REVOLUTION, is a quadric surface obtained by rotating an ellipse about one of its principal axes; in other words, an ellipsoid with two equal semi-diameters . If the ellipse is rotated about its major axis, the result is a PROLATE (elongated) spheroid, shaped like an American football
American football
or rugby ball. If the ellipse is rotated about its minor axis, the result is an OBLATE (flattened) spheroid, shaped like a lentil . If the generating ellipse is a circle, the result is a sphere . A spheroid has circular symmetry . Because of the combined effects of gravity and rotation , the shape of the Earth
Earth
, and of all planets , is not quite a sphere but instead is slightly flattened in the direction of its axis of rotation. For that reason, in cartography the Earth

Free Substitution
FREE SUBSTITUTION is a rule in some sports that allows players to enter and leave the game for other players many times during the course of the game; and for coaches to bring in and take out players an unlimited number of times. SPORTS THAT ALLOW FREE SUBSTITUTION * BASKETBALL . Basketball

Substitutions are also made if a player is getting too many personal fouls and is in danger of disqualification. * GRIDIRON FOOTBALL . Players can be changed during any dead ball situation.

Offense (sports)
In sports, OFFENSE (US ) or OFFENCE (Can. ) (see spelling differences ; pronounced with first-syllable stress; from Latin offensus), also known as ATTACK, is the action of attacking or engaging an opposing team with the objective of scoring points or goals. The term may refer to the tactics involved in offense, or a sub-team whose primary responsibility is offense. Generally, goals are scored by teams' offenses, but in sports such as American football it is common to see defenses and special teams (which serve as a team's offensive unit on kicking plays and defensive on returning plays) score as well. The fielding side in cricket is also generally known as the bowling attack despite the batting side being the side that scores runs. In counties other than North America, the term offence is almost always taken to mean an infraction of the rules, a penalty or foul, and attack is more likely to be used where Americans would use offense

Association Football
ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL, more commonly known as FOOTBALL or SOCCER, is a team sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball . It is played by 250 million players in over 200 countries and dependencies, making it the world's most popular sport. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing goal. Players are not allowed to touch the ball with their hands or arms while it is in play, unless they are goalkeepers (and then only when within their penalty area ). Other players mainly use their feet to strike or pass the ball, but may also use any part of their body except the hands and the arms. The team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins. If the score is level at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time or a penalty shootout depending on the format of the competition
