It would be helpful if someone added a section with some definitions or descriptions of different penalties, like offside and false start, holding and types of illegal blocking and interference. There's a section on how penalties are signaled and the consequences of penalties, but not what types of penalties there actually are.

How the hell can Tom Coughlin have served in WWII when he was born August 31 1946? That's over a year after Japan's surrender.

Somebody just had to add Tim Tebow, didn't they...

No rule says that a Troper can't be a Tebowist...

Doubt the troper has kept the faith lately.

I really think that this needs to be split up into more sub-headings, made into a couple of subpages, and/or simply condensed in general. It's a little tough to read compared to other articles.

Does anyone think Tony Romo should be on this page, to go alongside Mc Nabb as something of a No Respect Guy?

There should be more offensive linemen on this page.

There should be an arena football section on this page.

This page is already pretty big. Considering the differences in rules, atmosphere, player salaries, and TV exposure, I think we're better off creating a separate Arena page and giving it a paragraph here. We could even change "American Football" to more or less of an index page, discussing the game in general, then link to: "National Football League" and "Arena Football League" for issues specific to those leagues, and to the already-existing "Collegiate American Football" for the college game.

I'm thinking that there should be a Useful Notes page about Canadian Football. The page is starting to look a little big.

Agreed. Right now, Canadian Football redirects here, but it has its own history and its own rules (which some Americans might be interested to learn). We could start by referring back here and noting the differences between the two games, then over time build it out into something with its own identity.

Should we add Tom Dempsey to the list of special teams people to know given his record still standing and him being the reason for the "Dempsey Rule"?
