simple example: the whole world kicks a ball back when you roll it towards, in stead of kick it back you would put it up and trow it .
You think if someone kicks a soccer ball at an American, that he or she wouldn't kick it back? Only time we would do anything but kick it is if it were on a basketball court.

Oh, and BTW, I speak American English. The word is soccer here. Sorry if that is not "international" enough for you, but then again, I'm not correcting you for saying "football" either. To me, soccer is a better word in this context since it is unambiguous, especially in regard to US stadiums.

I'm sure my list won't be to everyone's taste, but I have a penchant for somewhat brutal methods of roofing support, which would explain a couple of these:

1) Murrayfield




2) Parc Des Princes, Paris




3) KC Stadium, Hull




4) Croke Park, Dublin

5) Old Trafford, Manchester

I find the stadium, from the outside certainly, to be very aesthetically pleasing. Again, no doubt, this harps back to how aesthetically pleasing I find rather large, and even brutal, cantilevers.
