The last of the photos I took at the Yorkshire Rams versus Gateshead Senators game from earlier this month. Compared to games I watched in the late 80s / early 90s, the standard of play is much higher. There’s more completed passes and the quarterbacks are not one man bands who run more than they pass. Although a few lineman still fall over at the line of scrimmage as soon as the play starts, blocking is generally better. The kicking games is not up to much, though. Extra points are a rarity and the teams seems to go for it on fourth down a lot instead of bringing on a place kicker. Still, the hitting is hard and the players still go for it even if the game is lost.
So which shots are better – living colour or classic monochrome?
