Re: AMERICAN FOOTBALL Anybody?

Check out the local club. They used to be called the Lausanne Sharks, but it looks like they've changed their name to the Lausanne University Club of American Football. Anyway, it is all just amateurs playing for fun. The main team maybe more serious than you are looking for, but they also have a flag football team, see here.

I'm interested...there is a full size american football field directly behind my house with the proper goal posts and everything. There is a team that practices out there a couple times a week...maybe its the team referred to above.

Re: [Lausanne] AMERICAN FOOTBALL Anybody?

ok lets get some general points cleared up, since this is starting to pick up. no uniforms needed, cleats would be good if everybody had soem if not, just sneakers. have to make it fair. age doesnt matter, skill level doesnt matter, its just a friendly game, uhm what else weekends or week, we have to see who is down first and then we set up a date when everybody is free. sounds good guys, lets get a head count first. im down, so thats 1.

Re: [Lausanne] AMERICAN FOOTBALL Anybody?

I will ask my husband when he gets home from work tonight, but I bet he will want to play. Weekends, especially Sundays are best for him.

Re: [Lausanne] AMERICAN FOOTBALL Anybody?

let me know if you get enough to field one five man team...Maybe one Sunday, I can bring my Zurich Boys and we can play against each other. If you want to set a definite date for this, let me know...we play two hand touch, btw.

Just wanna say that I went to my first game of American football, between the Giants and the Redskins when I was in New York.

It was great fun

Re: [Lausanne] AMERICAN FOOTBALL Anybody?

yes, I'm sure there was plenty of action, scoring, excitement, and genuine strategy during the Giants v Redskins game....just like in a soccer game.
