With the exception of the Boston Game, kicking games were generally more popular in the U.S. at the time.



The forward pass was introduced to Canadian football (then Canadian Rugby) by Frank Shaughnessy in 1921 in a game against Syracuse, and it wasn't legalized in amateur leagues until 1929, and in all leagues until 1931. This is indisputable fact.

I acknowledged that, while stating that the first American football club (Oneida) was formed the same year. It is also unclear under which rules the Toronto game was played (from what sources I could gather, it was Rugby).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oneida_Football_Club



The first game Harvard played against McGill was the Boston Game, which Harvard won, 3-0. Harvard then played McGill to a scoreless tie in McGill's version of Rugby, which, by no accounts of the game, allowed forward passing.
http://www.the-game.org/history-originsto1889.htm

So yes, the game McGill introduced to Harvard spread like wildfire in the U.S., but that game was Rugby, not modern gridiron football, and it certainly didn't allow the use of the forward pass.



As shown above, this is completely false.



No argument about this.



Only inasmuch as Canadians introduced Americans to Rugby.

A lot of pictures being posted in this thread seem kind of off-topic. It seems people are just posting pictures of stadiums that are located in their city.

True, true, but it's a bit weird for me that all of the writings on Donbass Arena are in Latin Alphabet and... in English. EOT


My own favourite stadiums are Azteca stadium and famous La Bombonera.

Intended for 50,000 spectators, Donbass Arena is the first stadium in Eastern Europe designed and built in line with Elite-Class UEFA standards (5-Star Standard). The project of the staium with a set-up park around it cost USD 400m. Donbass Arena was designed by ArupSport Company, which has built the City of Manchester Stadium (Manchester, England); Allianz Stadium (Munich, Germany); Espanol Stadium (Barcelona, Spain); and Sydney Football Stadium (Sydney, Australia). An exceptional engineering solution – the soaring roof effect – will make the Stadium resemble a flying saucer. The oval shape and the glazed façade ensure a memorable outlook. The Stadium is located near RSK Olimpiyskiy Regional Sports Complex creating an elegant architectural ensemble. The roof of the Stadium slopes from north to south matching the landscape and contributing to the natural lighting and airing of the pitch. The external lighting will make the Stadium shine like a diamond at night.The games on the pitch will be displayed on two LED–screens of around 100 sq.m. each – one of the largest screens in Europe.Donbass Arena will be a home pitch for FC Shakhtar and a cultural centre of Donbass capital. Donbass Arena will also host three restaurants, four bars for owners of season-cards, a lounge-bar, dozens of fast foods, sales outlets, a fitness centre as well as a fan-café, a museum and FC Shakhtar brand shop. In addition, the facility is regarded as a venue for Champions League and UEFA Cup finals.

Only thing nice about that stadium is its capacity, Otherwise, its terrible, looks nothing like a stadium/ sporting ground. There is no flowing design, looks like the stadium "that jack built"

For those people who mentioned Toronto's Rogers Centre (aka SkyDome), I couldn't disagree more. The "concrete convertible" is not very nice at all, IMO. Maybe it's because I work in the building.
