The best type of kickoff is a kickoff. No point changing that. Sure, move it up and down the pitch but do no more.

Just seen someone say if Goodell wants to do away with kicking why not go park style and the QB throws the ball as far as he can and where it lands is where the other team starts

A better idea than 4th and 15.

Jamarcus Russell could be a star.

Instead of the QB throwing have the long snappers throw it.

am I the only one who would start avidly following other leagues if the NFL took away kickoffs? It's like getting rid of Christmas eve, it'd be wrong going without it.

Also fingers crossed for Raiders tonight. Nothing personal Denver, but i want that #2 seed!

I'd be more sad about losing onside kicks. Onside kicks are great!

I get that kickoffs can be dangerous, but come on. How much longer until we just put flags on everyone?

You know, that would probably actually mean I could become a very capable NFL athlete. I'm big, strong, and fast for my size, I just don't have an aggressive enough mentality to be a good tackler.

Make it happen! I could use an extra $16m!

We both want the #2 seed so that was Snap

It has been almost a decade since I played a game with a normal deck of cards. Nobody wants to play poker around here.

Also:

I'm telling you, they're axing these two, trading Rivers, moving to LA, and starting fresh in a new stadium. The San Diego Chargers will be no more this time next year.

What about drinking games?

Have you never ridden the bus?

From what I've heard from UKers I've touched on the subject with online before, there's a much different drinking culture in the UK than the US, so this probably comes off as a bit odd, but I don't drink. I'm not one of the crazies who's fire-and-brimstone against it, it's just not my kind of thing. Not a fan of the taste or the feel.

This also means I have no idea what you mean and assume you mean riding an actual bus.

Right, since I've been at uni I've heard of about 20 different versions of the game Ring Of Fire, all varying massively, some are card games, rules from my part of the world literally entail a ring of fire. What's the rules you know?

I thought American colleges were full of drunk party goers. Are you telling me they're not?

Ring of Fire is a different game to Ride the Bus

But the rules I played for RoF were basically about assigning a rule to each card and setting them up face down in a circle (ring) around an empty glass. The glass gets filled every time someone picks up a King from the ring as they have to pour part of their drink into it. The person who picks up the final King has to drink the dirty cocktail, ending the game.

Pretty much everyone varies on rules for the other cards. Common ones include Question Master (I believe we used the number eight for this), six for dicks (men drink) and fours for whores (women drink).

EDIT: Of course everyone uses a waterfall rule.
