The best sport ever, By: erik
Football has a lot of rules and most are to keep you safe from injury. Penalty flags are thrown when you are breaking those rules. Your team get's penalized when this happens. A few of the rules are; the holding rule, if you hold a player for the purpose that they can't get to where they're going then your team will get penalized ten yards. Another rule is the face mask rule, which means that you cannot grab the other person's face mask. If you do your team will get penalized 15 yards. There are lot's of other rules too so if you follow the rules your team will do good.
In football the goal on defense is to stop and tackle the person with the ball. Because of this you have to be able to stay safe and not get injured. The stuff that you have to wear when playing an organized tackle football game is; cleats, football pants that have knee pads and thigh pads on them, hip pads, shoulder pads, and a helmet. If you wear all these things you will not get injured easily.
