    Hello everyone,

    I just started a new job. Everybody in the office knows a lot about football. It is the company culture.

    I have never watched a football game in my life and know NOTHING about the sport.

    Could somebody please briefly describe the rules of football? I have tried watching the games but I get completely lost.

    I need to be knowledgable about football so I can fit in at my new job.

    My suggestion would be to go to your local library or bookstore and you should be able to find several books targeted for someone like yourself. Don't take offense at the title - but one to consider is Football for Dummies, from the same group that makes all those other "for dummies" books.

    In the meantime this link should help:
    Football 101 - Understanding the Basics of American Football

    There are plenty of other links within that article with more specifics.

    Hope that helps!
