Celebrating small wins with the entire team is acceptable. But not at the cost of the game itself, isn’t it? Certain times, players lose control over their emotions and tend to celebrate their wins even before the declaration. And the probability that the opposition team takes the win in this period is more likely.
“What kind of a game is that?” was the thing that sauntered into my mind when I first caught a glimpse of the game that I now worship, adore and love deeply. What sense could a 12 year old kid, in a Cricket loving country possibly have derived from Football right? I couldn’t either. Guys running around the pitch chasing a ball seemed stupid to me then. Though incidentally, a few days later my dad got me FIFA (the game) to play on the desktop and I decided to give it a try.
Football is the most popular sport in the European continent and parts of America, oh scratch that, football is the most popular sport in the world, no wait it is a religion.
Its origin dates back to Han dynasty in 3rd century BC where leather balls were filled with feathers and kicked around. In Greece, a sport called “Episkyros” was played in which there were no rules as such besides the rule of kicking the ball into a net (they took the saying that there is just one rule very seriously.) The game had no particular size of field or number of players at that time so yeah there have been times when team had entire clans as their on field squad, wasn’t very different from war in those times.
