Football quotes by Jake Byrne
#5. When the football is handed to the ball carrier, everyone counts on that guy gaining a down or getting into the end zone, and when he does the crowd goes wild. But those who carry another's burden, by helping out a weak or injured brother or sister, make a real difference and score points with God. #Quote by Jake Byrne
Football quotes by Bill Watterson
#6. The center snaps the ball to the quarterback!"
"No he doesn't!"
"He doesn't?"
"NO! Secretly, he's the quarterback for the other team! He keeps the ball!"
"A traitor!"
"Calvin breaks for the goal."
"Wheeee! He's at the 30... the 20... the 10! Nobody can catch him!"
"Nobody wants to! Your running toward your own goal!"
"When I learned that you were a spy, I switched goals. This is your goal and mine's hidden!"
"You'll never find it in a million years!"
"I don't need to find it as a traitor to your team, crossing my goal counts as crossing your goal!"
"Ah, so you might think so..."
"In fact, I know so!"
"But the place I hid my goal is right on top of your goal, so the points will go to me!"
"But the fact is, I'm really a double agent! I'm on your team after all, which means you'll lose points if I cross your goal! Ha ha!"
"But I'm a traitor too, so I'm really on your team! I want you to cross my goal! The points will go to your team, which is really my team!"
"That would be true... if I were a football player!"
"You mean...?"
"I'm actually a badminton player disguised as a double-agent football player!!"
"And I'm actually a volleyball-croquet-polo player!"
"Sooner or later, all our games turn into CalvinBall."
"No cheating! #Quote by Bill Watterson
Football quotes by Dougie Brimson
#7. One of the things about football fans in general is that they all think that they're the same. But they are not. This is a myth put about by people who wish that they were the same as the geezers. There are, in fact, a number of distinctive types of supporter, and although they all have a role to play, they are all very different indeed. #Quote by Dougie Brimson
Football quotes by Robin Van Persie
#8. Manchester United breathe football. When I have to make hard decisions, I always listen to little boy inside me and what he wants. That little boy was screaming for United. #Quote by Robin Van Persie
Football quotes by Oliver Bierhoff
#9. Our junior national teams feature increasing numbers of kids from immigrant backgrounds, but who have grown up in Germany. Their roots are elsewhere, but they feel German. They draw on two cultures, and I believe that's been a real and visible factor in the football we've been playing. One of the best and abiding images was Cacau, a Christian with Brazilian roots, celebrating a goal with Mesut Ozil, a Muslim from a Turkish background. Ozil jumped on to Cacau's shoulders, and they gazed up into the stands, both wearing Germany shirts. It was wonderfully symbolic. #Quote by Oliver Bierhoff
Football quotes by Peta Kelly
#10. If Earth had a soccer team, everyone on Earth would wear the same jersey to support it. There'd be no them, there'd only be us. #Quote by Peta Kelly

#13. If you don't play well, you have a bad game or a nightmare you know that the amount of coverage is worldwide. #Quote by Steven Gerrard
Football quotes by Sergio Ramos

Football quotes by Johan Cruijff
#24. When you play a match, it is statistically proven that players actually have the ball 3 minutes on average ... So, the most important thing is: what do you do during those 87 minutes when you do not have the ball. That is what determines wether you're a good player or not. #Quote by Johan Cruijff
Football quotes by Herschel Walker
#25. My God given talent is my ability to stick with training longer than anybody else. #Quote by Herschel Walker
Football quotes by Jerry Rice
#26. You know, I never looked down the road and said, 'Hey look, one day, the Hall of Fame.' It's always about playing each and every game 100 percent and I thank my teammates for getting me into the Hall because football is a team sport, not an individual sport. #Quote by Jerry Rice
Football quotes by Bob Devaney

Football quotes by Joe Montana
#36. You need to be able to work with people. Especially in football, it is not a QB's game ... even though the media likes to make it into that - it takes the whole team. #Quote by Joe Montana
Football quotes by Terry Bradshaw

Football quotes by Gisele Walko
#39. Blaine, basketball, football and baseball are for commoners, the lower ninety-nine percent. We need our own thing to play when we're not sitting around talking about our family's money.

We could wear polo shirts…. #Quote by Gisele Walko

Football quotes by Bob Costas
#43. If every university president said, 'The revenue producing sports: basketball, football - potentially revenue producing at most universities - maybe in a few cases women's basketball, if every one of them had a monitor that reported directly to the university president and no 'student-athlete' ever gets into this college or university who could not plausibly be admitted if we did not have a football or basketball team, end of problem. It won't happen because it's like unilaterally disarming. You know your opponent won't do it and then you'll get crushed in every game, but it's a simple thing. #Quote by Bob Costas

People in the stands think you're the greatest or the worst - their opinion doesn't make a difference. The only opinion that makes any difference is your own opinion of yourself. #Quote by Dan Marino

Football quotes by Jessie Ann Foley
#57. Maggie sipped her drink with the cat draped across her lap and the dog curled at her feet. The only sounds in the room were the crackling of the fire and Dan Sean's shallow snores. There were no CD's to play, no radio, no television. There was nothing. She was just sitting there in silence, getting drunk. It occurred to her that a person's first drunken experience shoud be in the basement of a friend's house, in a forest preserve, behind the bleachers of a football field. Certainly not in the company of a sleeping ninety-nine-year-old man. She giggled a little and wondered what Uncle Kevin would make of it. "Hot port?" he would say. "Very impressive, Mags. I would have thought you'd be more of a wine cooler type of girl. #Quote by Jessie Ann Foley

#58. Here in Cameroon, football is our leading political party. It's football alone that that unites us, it's football alone that brings us good things - football is the window into our country - so we don't mess around with it. #Quote by Roger Milla

Football quotes by Mariah Nelson
#64. Too often girls accept that of course the boys will get better lighting and seating at their sports events, of course the football team will get more attention, privileges, and space in the yearbook. We need to teach girls to look around and notice when they're being treated like second-class citizens, and then to insist on equal treatment. #Quote by Mariah Nelson
Football quotes by Pete Rozelle
#65. Pro football was taking off when I became commissioner, and when a sport's successful and you're its chief executive officer, much of the credit flows to you and you develop a good track record. #Quote by Pete Rozelle

#74. The caliber of play in professional football compared to college is better and everybody knows it. They don't realize how much better.

Football quotes by Mariana Zapata
#81. I drummed my fingers on the steering wheel as I looked around the empty lot. I wavered on getting out when a giant lightning bolt painted a jagged streak across the rainy lavender-gray sky. Minutes passed and still he didn't come out of the Three Hundreds' building.

Damn it. Before I could talk myself out of it, I jumped out of the car, cursing at myself for not carrying an umbrella for about the billionth time and for not having waterproof shoes, and ran through the parking lot, straight through the double doors. As I stomped my feet on the mat, I looked around the lobby for the big guy. A woman behind the front desk raised her eyebrows at me curiously. "Can I help you with something?" she asked.

"Have you seen Aiden?"


Were there really that many Aidens? "Graves."

"Can I ask what you need him for?"

I bit the inside of my cheek and smiled at the woman who didn't know me and, therefore, didn't have an idea that I knew Aiden. "I'm here to pick him up."

It was obvious she didn't know what to make of me. I didn't exactly look like pro-football player girlfriend material in that moment, much less anything else. I'd opted not to put on any makeup since I hadn't planned on leaving the house. Or real pants. Or even a shirt with the sleeves intact. I had cut-off shorts and a baggy T-shirt with sleeves that I'd taken scissors to. Plus the rain outside hadn't done my hair any justice. It looked like a #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Football quotes by Alan Shearer
#82. I didn't watch cartoons, I was too busy playing football. #Quote by Alan Shearer
Football quotes by Jim Bouton
#83. The only member of the team nobody liked was our 6 o'clock sports guy, a fellow named Howard Cosell. "Monday Night Football" was just getting started and Howard was annoyed at having to be on the same news with mere local personalities, whom he would attack on the air. This was a mistake in the case of Roger Grimsby who was a lot sharper and even more devastating than Cosell, in his own way. I remember one night, at the end of his report, Howard went into a sarcastic putdown of Grimsby that lasted for what seemed like two minutes. Finally, when Howard was finished, the camera switched to Grimsby who was sitting there with his eyes closed, snoring. #Quote by Jim Bouton
Football quotes by James Bay
#84. I'm very close in age to my older brother, and we had a field at the end of the road where we could run around, climb trees, play football. #Quote by James Bay
Football quotes by George Orwell
#85. I am always amazed when I hear people saying that sport creates goodwill between the nations, and that if only the common peoples of the world could meet one another at football or cricket, they would have no inclination to meet on the battlefield. Even if one didn't know from concrete examples (the 1936 Olympic Games, for instance) that international sporting contests lead to orgies of hatred, one could deduce it from general principles ... There cannot be much doubt that the whole thing is bound up with the rise of nationalism - that is, with the lunatic modern habit of identifying oneself with large power units and seeing everything in terms of competitive prestige. #Quote by George Orwell
Football quotes by Graeme Le Saux
#86. In the last year my wife has noticed me struggling to get downstairs on a Sunday morning. I've two young children and football has been so good to me over the years I don't want to spoil it. #Quote by Graeme Le Saux
Football quotes by Herschel Walker
#87. Football, that's just athletics. But in the business world - doing everything - people are competing. So you need good work ethics, and I think it helped me to develop good work ethics, being in a small town. #Quote by Herschel Walker
Football quotes by Alan Parry
#88. There's no end to the stoppage of this drama #Quote by Alan Parry
Football quotes by Jimmy Hill
#89. What makes this game so delightful is that when both teams get the ball they are attacking their opponents goal. #Quote by Jimmy Hill
Football quotes by Deyth Banger
#90. The football is the worstes game, you are famous because you are okay... but after few years you become 30 or 40 who knows?!
ANd you are out of that sport, alone in the world you are not anymore famous. You are one of them, but after all who has played football knows that you should be an idiot to play that sport, good at football worst in life. But a lot of these days are like them, not like these people, but like them!? #Quote by Deyth Banger
Football quotes by Ben Roethlisberger

Football quotes by Ernest Hemingway,

Football quotes by Henry James
#94. When you lay down a proposition which is forthwith controverted, it is of course optional with you to take up the cudgels in its defence. If you are deeply convinced of its truth, you will perhaps be content to leave it to take care of itself; or, at all events, you will not go out of your way to push its fortunes; for you will reflect that in the long run an opinion often borrows credit from the forbearance of its patrons. In the long run, we say; it will meanwhile cost you an occasional pang to see your cherished theory turned into a football by the critics. A football is not, as such, a very respectable object, and the more numerous the players, the more ridiculous it becomes. Unless, therefore, you are very confident of your ability to rescue it from the chaos of kicks, you will best consult its interests by not mingling in the game. #Quote by Henry James
Football quotes by Manny Montana
#95. I come from an area where it's mostly, like, football and basketball, those are the sports. So my brother started surfing ... I used to make fun of him for it, and then he challenged me to do it, and I'm a huge competitor, and I did it ,and I got hooked. #Quote by Manny Montana
Football quotes by Matt Busby
#96. Football hooligans? Well, there are 92 club chairmen for a start. #Quote by Matt Busby
Football quotes by Marshall Faulk
#97. I'm not a big power-and-strength guy, but I have a lot of balance, and I can take hits and stay on my feet. I control myself real good, shift my weight, and run real low. I do things that people haven't seen some of the running backs in the league do. #Quote by Marshall Faulk
Football quotes by Kevin McKidd
#98. In the late-'80s, there was a big push to make American football big in Scotland. The Super Bowl was on TV, but it didn't really catch on. When I was a kid, though, I became a big Miami Dolphins fan. I don't really know why - I just liked the logo, I guess. I didn't really know what was going on. #Quote by Kevin McKidd
Football quotes by Ernie Davis
#99. Football is just a game. What matters is what you play for. #Quote by Ernie Davis
Football quotes by Joe Kinnear
#100. The problem at Wimbledon seems to be that the club has suffered a loss of complacency. #Quote by Joe Kinnear
Football quotes by Junior Seau
#101. Too many athletes are living in a tiny window. They have no vision for themselves - what they can be outside of football and what they can mean to a community. They just don't know any better. My hopes and dreams are unlimited. #Quote by Junior Seau
Football quotes by Woody Hayes
#102. There's nothing in this world that comes easy. There are a lot of people who aren't going to bother to win. We learn in football to get up and go once more. #Quote by Woody Hayes

Football quotes by Josh Hutcherson
#108. I like both athletic girls and girly girls. It depends on their personality. I like girls who can go out and play sports with me and throw the football around, but you don't want a girl who's too much tougher than you. I like brainy girls who can respond to what I'm saying. #Quote by Josh Hutcherson
Football quotes by Ricky Williams
#109. I've had a lot of clouds in my life since I got into pro football
too many
but now I feel like I can see really clearly for the first time. And I can see the Super Bowl from here. #Quote by Ricky Williams
Football quotes by Terry Pratchett
#110. Nanny Ogg was an attractive lady, which is not the same as being beautiful. She fascinated Casanunda. She was an incredibly comfortable person to be around, partly because she had a mind so broad it could accommodate three football fields and a bowling alley. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Football quotes by John Boyne
#111. Bruno opened his eyes in wonder at the things he saw. In his imagination he had tough that all the huts were full of happy families, some of whom sat outside on rocking chairs in the evening and told stories about how things were so much better when they were children and they'd had nowadays. He thought that all the boys and girls who lived there would be in different groups, playing tennis or football, skipping and drawing out squares for hopscotch on the ground.
As it turned out, all the things he thought might be there-wern't.' -The boy in the striped Pajamas #Quote by John Boyne
Football quotes by Terry Pratchett

Football quotes by Steve Jobs
#114. So [Polaroid's Dr. Edwin] Land, at 75, went off to spend the remainder of his life doing pure science, trying to crack the code of color vision. The man is a national treasure. I don't understand why people like that can't be held up as models: This is the most incredible thing to be - not an astronaut, not a football player - but this. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Football quotes by Alan Hansen
#115. When I was playing football, I always felt in complete control. When I play golf and come under pressure, it's a completely different ball game. #Quote by Alan Hansen

Football quotes by Anna Kendrick
#118. You can relax more when you're playing a silly character than when you're playing a really rigid character. But to be fair, I think George Clooney is a bigger teenager than any of the 'Twilight' cast. He's the guy throwing a football at your head and then hiding around the corner, pretending it wasn't him! #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Football quotes by Larry Fitzgerald
#119. If you play football, there's going to be a 100 percent injury rate. Something is going to be bothering you. So I just try to focus on the things that I can do to help my team. #Quote by Larry Fitzgerald

#123. Football can stand parity better than any of the other sports, I think. Baseball, basketball and hockey need a defining team, in essence to frame the season. Football? Not so much. #Quote by Michael Wilbon
Football quotes by Peyton Manning
#124. Pressure is something you feel when you don't know what the hell you're doing. #Quote by Peyton Manning
Football quotes by Neil Atkinson
#125. It is, as calls to arms go, straightforward. Crystal clear. And if you aren't looking forward to Spurs and Kazan, to Southampton and Bournemouth, if that just doesn't get you going, wanting to be emotional, unashamedly emotional, optimistic, passionate in a way that outsiders love to mock and our own meek minded souls call 'embarrassing' then you know what? There's the door. There is the door, and you can walk through it, and both you and us will be happier for that. Because, for ninety minutes every few days, this fella represents Liverpool, eleven lads wearing Red represent Liverpool and we represent Liverpool. Wherever we are on globe, with an even greater responsibility if we are in the stadium. #Quote by Neil Atkinson
Football quotes by Graham Taylor
#126. Is he ever going to learn? #Quote by Graham Taylor
Football quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#127. Bobby Tom told me he's not afraid of the Chargers' defense."
"Bobby Tom'll tell you he's not afraid of nuclear war, so I wouldn't put too much stock in his opinion. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Football quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#128. In the game of football, you least complain, shout, talk or blame your opponents or the referee continuously throughout the game just because of your opponents opposition, strength or antics to ensure that you lose focus and lose the game; winning the game is your true aim. Such is life! You must do all you ought to do to score your goals notwithstanding the oppositions and how life will play the game of life with you! Be a goal getter! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Football quotes by Jeanne Birdsall
#129. Do you think she'll want to later? Rosalind, I mean, not Aunt Claire. I mean, I'm sure Aunt Claire could do football drills if she wanted to, but I'd rather have Ros - I mean ... Tommy had trailed off into an embarrassed silence. Skye #Quote by Jeanne Birdsall
Football quotes by Frank Leahy
#130. The first and foremost requisite of a good football player is that he must have a burning desire to play the game. There is absolutely no substitute for this. #Quote by Frank Leahy
Football quotes by Steve Mariucci
#131. There's no way running on a beach or at some high school playground that you're going to get in football shape like you do when you practice. #Quote by Steve Mariucci
Football quotes by Michel Patini
#132. What Zidane can do with a football, Maradona could do with an orange. #Quote by Michel Patini
Football quotes by Alan Shearer
#133. People are very proud of Newcastle, very proud to come from here. This is a working class City and they just want to enjoy themselves and live life to the full. They work all week, pick their wages up at the end of the week and they spend it over a weekend by having a good time and watching the football. That's our life. #Quote by Alan Shearer
Football quotes by Sarah Steelman
#134. Of course I am for stopping violence against women. It is unfortunate that the Senate Democrats are making the current re-authorization of Violence Against Women bill into a political football. The Republicans are offering an improved version of the reauthorization bill and I want to review it. #Quote by Sarah Steelman
Football quotes by Stanley Kunitz
#135. What makes the engine go?
Desire, desire, desire. #Quote by Stanley Kunitz
Football quotes by Jeremy Shockey

Football quotes by Leigh Steinberg
#137. Now we're getting a whole generation of kids who have never had a football team in L.A., so they don't miss it and don't ask for it. It becomes self-perpetuating. They don't know what they're missing. #Quote by Leigh Steinberg
Football quotes by Charlie Adam
#138. Football's all about opinions, all of them different, whether from a top analyst or a man in a bunnet, and some folk are just never going to like you. #Quote by Charlie Adam
Football quotes by Stephanie McMahon
#139. 'Monday Night Football' is a competitor to 'Monday Night Raw.' #Quote by Stephanie McMahon
Football quotes by Ian Rush
#140. I realised I'd been spoiled at Liverpool. We were used to winning. In Italy I grew up as a person. I didn't enjoy the football, mind. It was very defensive, but I became a better player because of the work I had to do around the box. Off the pitch, I learned about what to eat and what to drink to be successful, and I learned about life. #Quote by Ian Rush
Football quotes by Kristi Cook
#141. I'll tell you about Ryder. He's the star quarter back of our Division 1A state championship football team. Top student in our class, he doesn't even have to work for it. He plays the piano like some kind of freaking prodigy, and I wouldn't be surprised if he composed sonatas or something in his spare time.
Oh, and did I mention that he's gorgeous? Of course he is. Six foot four, two hundred ten pounds of swoon-worthy good looks. Spiky dark hair, chocolate brown eyes, and full-on dimples. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Football quotes by Jock Brown
#142. It will be a shame if either side lose, and that applies to both sides. #Quote by Jock Brown
Football quotes by Nick Hornby
#143. I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love with women: suddenly, inexplicably, uncritically, giving no thought to the pain or disruption it would bring with it. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Football quotes by Mark O'Brien
#144. Football is all about sentiment; if it weren't then we'd all support Manchester United. #Quote by Mark O'Brien
Football quotes by Greg Akcelrod
#145. I think if you want to become a great football player, professional, you must give all the time one hundred percent, you must work hard - to be lucky is a good thing - but if you work hard and you give everything you will have great success. #Quote by Greg Akcelrod
Football quotes by Rob Gronkowski
#146. As time goes on you're getting more knowledge of your playbook and football, and you just pick it up a lot easier. Lining up everywhere is just second nature to me now. #Quote by Rob Gronkowski
Football quotes by Diego Maradona
#147. You were only a goalkeeper. #Quote by Diego Maradona
Football quotes by Bill Shankly
#148. Football (soccer) is a matter of life and death, except more important. #Quote by Bill Shankly
Football quotes by C.C. Gibbs
#149. And I played football so I knocked a few heads around there, but nothing out of the ordinary. I played baseball too but that's not a contact sport.' No way he was going to mention the endless sex – which was a contact sport. #Quote by C.C. Gibbs
Football quotes by Bruno Tonioli
#150. When I was 10, I knew there was something different about me. Everyone was football-mad, but I just wanted to watch musicals and see art. #Quote by Bruno Tonioli
Football quotes by Roy Keane
#151. I don't believe skill was, or ever will be, the result of coaches. It is a result of a love affair between the child and the ball. #Quote by Roy Keane
Football quotes by Bill Shankly
#152. In my time at Anfield we always said we had the best two teams on Merseyside - Liverpool and Liverpool reserves. #Quote by Bill Shankly
Football quotes by Kristoffer Polaha
#153. I liken actors and movies and TV shows to football teams. We all have our favorite ones. #Quote by Kristoffer Polaha
Football quotes by Barry Sanders
#154. In all the time that people have known me, has anyone ever heard me talk about the importance of rushing records or finishing with the most touchdowns? So if that's never been important to me, then why would that be a motivation to keep playing? #Quote by Barry Sanders
Football quotes by Stephen King
#155. Your own politicians make our Dr. Goebbels look like a child playing with picture books in a kindergarten. They speak of morality while they douse screaming children and old women in burning napalm. Your draft-resisters are called cowards and 'peaceniks.' For refusing to follow orders they are either put in jails or scourged from the country. Those who demonstrate against this country's unfortunate Asian adventure are clubbed down in the streets. The GI soldiers who kill the innocent are decorated by Presidents, welcomed home from the bayoneting of children and the burning of hospitals with parades and bunting. They are given dinners, Keys to the City, free tickets to pro football games." He toasted his glass in Todd's direction. "Only those who lose are tried as war criminals for following orders and directives. #Quote by Stephen King
Football quotes by Johnny Weir
#156. Statistically, I'd say there are about as many gay figure skaters as there are gay football players. The majority are straight. There are just those few exceptions, and those are the ones who have gotten picked on and followed over the years. #Quote by Johnny Weir
Football quotes by Cristiano Ronaldo

#159. I love football. #Quote by Kaitlin Olson
Football quotes by Marcello Lippi
#160. What happened in the United changing room has happened to me 50 times in my career. I have kicked bottles of mineral water, bags and shoes but I never hit a player. It's a question of technique, and the Scots must have a better technique. #Quote by Marcello Lippi
Football quotes by Brian Curtis
#161. when a football player steps on a field, he should do it all. I realize a great running back doesn't like to play defense, but life isn't based on what you like. If everyone did what he liked to do, we'd be in real trouble. #Quote by Brian Curtis
Football quotes by Troy Polamalu
#162. People are paralyzed on a football field. People die. You just never know when it's going to be your last moment. I was the kind of guy who would never talk to my wife on game day. Now I'm the guy who's like, 'I love you.' I want my children to know I love them because I don't know what's going to happen out there. #Quote by Troy Polamalu
Football quotes by Gordon Strachan
#163. The reality, ... is that I need to win games of football. That's where the pressure and the sleepless nights come from. There's a fantasy pressure with this job but none of that matters. I need to make this team into a good unit, need to take it forward, give it a change of pace, need to get it younger and to use the experience of the lads we've got here. I need Lennon and Sutton and people like that to go and show how you handle being a Celtic player. #Quote by Gordon Strachan
Football quotes by Jan Norris
#164. Being Southern isn't talking with an accent...or rocking on a porch while drinking sweet tea, or knowing how to tell a good story. It's how you're brought up -- with Southerners, family (blood kin or not) is sacred; you respect others and are polite nearly to a fault; you always know your place but are fierce about your beliefs. And food along with college football -- is darn near a religion. #Quote by Jan Norris
Football quotes by Eduardo Galeano
#165. The Stadium

Have you ever entered an empty stadium? Try it. Stand in the middle of the field and listen. There is nothing less empty than an empty stadium. There is nothing less mute than stands bereft of spectators.

At Wembley, shouts from the 1966 World Cup, which England won, still resound, and if you listen very closely you can hear groans from 1953 when England fell to the Hungarians. Montevideo's Centenario Stadium sighs with nostalgia for the glory days of Uruguayan soccer. Maracanã is still crying over Brazil's 1950 World Cup defeat. At Bombonera in Buenos Aires, drums boom from half a century ago. From the depths of Azteca Stadium, you can hear the ceremonial chants of the ancient Mexican ball game. The concrete terraces of Camp Nou in Barcelona speak Catalan, and the stands of San Mamés in Bilbao talk in Basque. In Milan, the ghosts of Giuseppe Meazza scores goals that shake the stadium bearing his name. The final match of the 1974 World Cup, won by Germany, is played day after day and night after night at Munich's Olympic Stadium. King Fahd Stadium in Saudi Arabia has marble and gold boxes and carpeted stands, but it has no memory or much of anything to say. #Quote by Eduardo Galeano
Football quotes by Emmitt Smith
#166. One thing I can say about the Dallas Cowboys: They have always had talent around them. They have been one of the most talented football teams in all of football. #Quote by Emmitt Smith
Football quotes by Sid Gillman
#167. When the passer's back foot hit the ground on his setup, I wanted the ball gone. If no one was open, if he had to buy time, I wanted him to bounce in place. And then I only wanted him scrambling as a last resort. When you bounce, you maintain your balance. When you start moving, you create an unnatural position for yourself. I want everything to be natural. #Quote by Sid Gillman
Football quotes by Mike McCarthy
#168. I think success is the biggest challenge you have to handle in the National Football League; that's something we talk about a lot. #Quote by Mike McCarthy
Football quotes by Martin O'Neill
#169. Ken Bates is a football cretin. #Quote by Martin O'Neill
Football quotes by Terry Bradshaw
#170. I always wanted everyone to like me. I wanted the city of Pittsburgh to be proud of me. But my first few seasons, I could to count the number of people on my bandwagon on one finger. #Quote by Terry Bradshaw
Football quotes by Terry Gross
#171. I mean, Dad was one of these people who simply could not lose, you know? He could not stand it when a kid was beating him. He would go crazy when the child came to that moment, which, you know, you have to come to - I mean, Dad played Old Maids like he played football. He just simply had to win every single thing every single time. #Quote by Terry Gross
Football quotes by Jake Friend
#172. I was on the computer the other day and typed my name into Google. Everything on there was bad. I hope in a few years there might be something there about me playing football. #Quote by Jake Friend
Football quotes by Carolyn Brown
#173. My mind went back to Bambi. If there were too many deer, then hunters were given the opportunity to shoot them. Cheating husbands were also a problem in the balance of nature, and there were far too many of them. Why couldn't there be open
season on cheating husbands? Deceived wives could purchase a gun, take lessons, and receive a cheating-husband hunting license complete with a big red A label to tie to the man's zipper after the kill. Open season could be scheduled months in advance to give the husbands a fighting chance. They could hide in refuges or stay home and take their chances at being shot through the living room window as they watched Monday Night Football. #Quote by Carolyn Brown
Football quotes by J.K. Rowling
#174. He could tell at once that they carried different sorts of bubble bath mixed with the water though it wasn't bubble bath as Harry had ever experienced. One tap gushed pink and blue bubbles the size of footballs; another poured ice-white foam so thick that Harry thought it would have supported his weight if he'd cared to test it; a third sent heavily perfumed purple clouds hovering over the surface of the water. Harry amused himself for a while turning the taps on and off, particularly enjoying the effect of one whose jet bounced off the surface of the water in large arcs. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Football quotes by Rod Liddle
#175. Faria Alam whined about the invasion of her privacy in yet another lucrative interview earlier this week. There is very good money to be made out of whining about the invasion of your privacy. #Quote by Rod Liddle
Football quotes by Vince Lombardi
#176. Football is blocking and tackling. Everything else is mythology. #Quote by Vince Lombardi
Football quotes by John Legend
#177. I don't like going to football games. I like watching them on television. When you go to a game, it's hard to focus. There's so much going on, and it's cold. I'd rather sit and watch it and get replays and commentary. #Quote by John Legend
Football quotes by George Vecsey
#178. There is no sports event like Opening Day of baseball, the sense of beating back the forces of darkness and the National Football League. #Quote by George Vecsey
Football quotes by Bill Parcells
#179. I think there are a lot of good people, a lot of good football guys in the NFL. #Quote by Bill Parcells

Football quotes by Tom Sizemore
#182. Whatever it is, if you draw, you paint, you're a carpenter, you play football, the more you do it, you're a journalist, the more stories you write, the more people you interview and navigate your way through these different personalities to get your story, the better you're going to get at it. Acting's no different. #Quote by Tom Sizemore
Football quotes by H.L. Mencken
#183. College football is a game which would be much more interesting if the faculty played instead of the students, and even more interesting if the trustees played. There would be a great increase in broken arms, legs, and necks, and simultaneously an appreciable diminution in the loss to humanity. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Football quotes by Michael Owen
#184. I can't believe anyone can have played the game of football as well as Messi. #Quote by Michael Owen

Football quotes by Anquan Boldin
#187. I'm comfortable with that [a week's practice]. I've had numerous weeks of working on it, and a lot of it has been football specific. One week of practice actually, one week of official practice and I'll be more than comfortable. #Quote by Anquan Boldin
Football quotes by Dennis Quaid
#188. I was a late bloomer. I tried out for the football team, and I got locked off the field. That's how I wound up in drama. #Quote by Dennis Quaid
Football quotes by R.A. Mathis

Football quotes by Isaac Marion
#192. Maybe creatures that are not like each other are supposed to hurt each other to find out which one is stronger, so that the stronger one can take the things it wants. A competition. A game. War! Sex! Football! #Quote by Isaac Marion
Football quotes by Bear Bryant
#193. If you want to coach you have three rules to follow to win. One, surround yourself with people who can't live without football. I've had a lot of them. Two, be able to recognize winners. They come in all forms. And, three, have a plan for everything. A plan for practice, a plan for the game. A plan for being ahead, and a plan for being behind 20-0 at half, with your quarterback hurt and the phones dead, with it raining cats and dogs and no rain gear because the equipment man left it at home. #Quote by Bear Bryant
Football quotes by Ronaldinho
#194. Football is a great love because I was born into a family of players and therefore born into football. I'm fortunate to have a style of play that a lot of people like. It's a privilege to be able to do what I like best and in my own way, but I'm fortunate that people like it, and that motivates me even more. #Quote by Ronaldinho
Football quotes by Tony Gubba
#195. The ageless Teddy Sheringham, 37 now ... #Quote by Tony Gubba
Football quotes by Taylor Lautner
#196. I've always been really active. I grew up playing sports, so I'm always shooting hoops or throwing the football with my friends. I'm super-active in that sense. #Quote by Taylor Lautner
Football quotes by Don Shula
#197. Because, they're only thinking about one team when that game's over. Before the game, they're talking about two football teams. When the game's over, there's only one winner. #Quote by Don Shula
Football quotes by Theo Walcott
#198. I've been consistent in patches this season. #Quote by Theo Walcott
Football quotes by Bobby Robson
#199. There will be a game where somebody scores more than Brazil and that might be the game that they lose. #Quote by Bobby Robson
Football quotes by Pete Richardson
#200. You can play and try to get focused for that time, but still the reality of that whole situation is once that game is over you still have to be confronted with what's going on. I think that's where the senior leadership on your football team has to come. They have to understand that we have a responsibility to reach our goals and that's to win the championship. #Quote by Pete Richardson
