Ok in American football, it's a field, not a pitch. Plus the field IS a measuring tool, therefore it has to be in yards, otherwise the game would be totally different if it were in meters. Even Canadian football works in yards. And heres metric dimensions.

Field Length 100 yds = 91.44 m
End Zone Length 10 yds = 9.14 m each
Width 160 ft = 48.77 m

Goal Posts
Height from ground 10 ft = 3.05 m
Width 18 ft 6 in = 5.64 m

Guess if you wanted to go metric the field would be 50m wide with 10 m endzones and 100 m. Things would narrow out a bit but not by much. But that would never happen.

We say the same thing about the Metric system. Though I do admit it would be helpful if the US would just convert over, but then I would totally be lost for quite a while.

I love the HD screen in Cowboys Stadium. Seen it on TV the other week *drool*. Apparently they hit it with the ball?

In fact France is SATAN, because before our metric system everybody used non-decimal systems !

Yes, but you are a bit alone.....(with Myanmar and Liberia).

About to be lost if you adopt the decimal system:
We had the same kind of fear before adopting the Euro..... And today I can tell you that we've almost forgotten our old currencies..

Only convert what you need to (just like the UK). mm, cm, and m are all easily measurable so it makes sense to switch to them. you can't measure miles or km easily so you just accept them as a unit of distance and use them as such.

A small handful of things here are measured in metric for convenience (especially in the realm of computing).

Lang Park/Suncorp is one of my faves, too.

Best rectangular stadium in Oz, by far (ANZ a not-too-distant second).
