In Infobox

venue = [[#Field|Football field]] (also known as the field or the gridiron)

Links to a nonexistent section "Field" instead of section "Field_and_equipment":

venue = [[#Field_and_equipment|Football field]] (also known as the field or the gridiron)

American Football is non existent outside the US[edit]

so why is it described as a Worldwide sport? it isn't. heck, it's not even international. There's only ONE pro league. The NFL. I vote to change region to USA only KHLrookie (talk) 21:00, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Our articles American football in Israel, American football in Australia, American football in Brazil, etc. show that it is known and played throughout the world. True, there is no other professional league, but that is not what "worldwide sport" means. --Khajidha (talk) 12:23, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
There are way more pro leagues besides NFL. WikiOriginal-9 (talk) 02:05, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
I guess that would depend upon how you define "pro league". Can you give me an example of another league where the players make enough money to live on without another job?--Khajidha (talk) 16:50, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Issue with pre-snap player positions diagram[edit]

As an article that may likely be a candidate for WP:Featured article in the future, I think the pre-snap diagrams section is not needed or really that useful. Aside from the fact that it looks low-quality, it also really doesn't add much of value, and it probably violates formatting rules as well. Toa Nidhiki05 02:07, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
