    lol the lacrosse move part describing a toe drag she said 'the plug'. A 'plug' in hockey is described as a player put into the roster simply because they needed a heart beat to fill the spot. lol a plug being able to do a toe drag against its competition.

    The CFL size ball is much harder to catch one-handed, making it that much more spectacular. On the other hand, the hits of the NFL is like watching 2 or more semi trucks smashing into each other, which is fun to watch.

    surely you should add the step, a manover in which a player pretends to go one direction but goes the other.

    Bicycle kicks aren't rare because they're hard to do, they're rare because they are very dangerous last-ditch efforts. It's something you do when you're forced to (by a bad pass for example). As such, goals scored via them are not as much a question of skill as they are of luck, since they're impossible to aim (beach soccer aside, it's not as dangerous to do there, and it is a sport designed by and for show-offs).
