Men kick friendship around like a football, but it doesn't seem to crack. Women treat it like glass and it goes to pieces.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Going to college offered me the chance to play football for four more years.
Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?
Wouldn't it be great if our national news media had standards as high as the National Football League's?
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates the weak ones.
And I think because of the passion of every English player and every English supporter, and every English journalist for the game, most of the game is played with passion, love for football and instinct, but in football you also have to think.
Outside of football and training, I am somewhat of a homebody. Love hangin' out with my siblings and close friends.
Football is a more beautiful game in high definition.
Sure, luck means a lot in football. Not having a good quarterback is bad luck.
It's too easy to blame other people in football.
If you want to surf, move to Hawaii. If you like to shop, move to New York. If you like acting and Hollywood, move to California. But if you like college football, move to Texas.
American football seems to resemble soccer in that one scores by putting the ball through the opponent's goal; but football, truly is about land. The Settlers want to move the line of scrimmage Westward, the Native Americans want to move it East.
There's room for boys' and girls' football in the world-that's what I believe.
In football you always get judged on your last game. Whoever you are, or how amazing you are, it's the last game that everyone has seen.

I believe in work, in connections between the players, I think what makes football great is that it is a team sport. You can win in different ways, by being more of a team, or by having better individual players. It is the team ethic that interests me, always.
We are Liverpool Football Club and the expectations are so high.
No money in this world could convince me to play for Liverpool. That's not a lack of respect for Liverpool supporters or the football club. It's respect for the Everton supporters. You just can't do that. It goes against everything that I stand for. No chance.
Timothy F. Cahill

I do play football no-holds-barred. Any edge I can get, I'll take. I'd grab a face mask only in a fit of anger. Uncontrolled anger is damn near insane.

Daniel J. Evans
You know, I never really paid attention to sports, which, coming from the mecca of football in Texas, is kind of odd. I played sports, but I was nerdy. Having a single mother, the pressure was on me to get good grades and a scholarship and go to college.
I had this urge to play the game of football, because so many people - I shouldn't say so many, a handful of people - said I couldn't do it. For me, it was one of those things that I just believe in my talent that the Lord gave me, and I wanted to take advantage of it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
