  MUHAMAD HANAFI BIN ZAINAL ABIDDIN 214661 GROUP K8 ENTRY 5 COMPARISION ESSAY THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPORTS OF FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL Professional football and basketball are two of the most watched sports in the nation. Football and basketball are both exciting and fascinating, not only for the players but for spectators, enthusiast and fans watching everywhere. These games are meant to catch ones attention and have them sitting on the edge of their seat. Both sports have been around since the eighteen century and will have an everlasting impression in American history. Although football and basketball are very well known sports and have the same intentions, they are both different in many ways, such as: uniforms, domain, and the players’ position.  Firstly the different is uniforms. For a football player’s uniform, one would  need a jersey and pants that match the team’s colors. Inside the pants is a knee, thigh, hip and tailbone pad which protects a player’s lower body during a high impact tackle. Undern eath the jersey are the chest pads which cushion the player’s upper body during a hit. For the head area, a player would need a protective helmet to guard the skull, and a mouth piece which secures the teeth. Lastly, the football player will need a pair of cleats to make sharp cuts and jukes while running the ball. However, for a basketball player, all of this protective gear is not necessary. Instead a basketball  player would need high ankle shoes to keep one from rolling their ankle and causing a painful injury. For the chest and leg portion of the body, one would simply need shorts and a jersey. As for the head gear, basketball players will wear a headband to prevent sweat from running into their eyes and blinding them from the action.  Beside that , these two sport also have difference in domain. Football players play on a rectangular field which is made out of either grass or turf (artificial grass). The field is a 100 yards long and 160 feet wide. The field is divided up by ten yard lines which are painted onto the field along with the teams’ logo. At each ends of the field there are end zone areas that signify the goal line and if a player surpasses this line, the team receives six points. Behind the end zone at both ends of the field are goal posts which are for extra point kicks and field goals that are  performed by the team kicker. On the other hand, the game of basketball is played on a wooden court that is rectangular shaped. The length of the basketball court is ninety-four feet and fifty feet wide, which is divided by a half court line. At each ends of the court are basketball goals, these goals are the primary target for the players; making the ball in one of these goals will gain the team points. The basketball court was designed for a fast pace game and is covered with a thin coat of polyurethane to give it a shiny look, also to give the players better grip when they cut to the hoop or make a crossover. Every type of game have their own player. The number of player depends to each sport, and they played their role in the game and this is what we called it player position. In football, there are eleven players on offense and each player has a specific job to fulfill. Starting with the quarterback, he is the one that calls the plays in the huddle. The quarterback’s job consists of reading different blitzes, calling an audible and making accurate passes to the wide receivers. The wide receivers are the hands of the football team, their job strictly consist of getting open on the field and catching passes from the quarterback. There are usually two wide receivers on the field at a time. After the offense has established the passing game, it is now time for the running  back to show his talents. The running back position is just what it sounds like; his trade is to run the ball and gain yards for the offense. The position that blocks and protects the running back is called the fullback. The fullback is a blocker and also an eligible runner but usually for short down plays only. As for the tight end position, this is the only player on the field that can  perform all three skills which are run, block, and go out for a pass but is mainly used for  blocking. Lastly is the offensive line, which is made up of five blockers (left guard, left tackle, center, right tackle, and right guard) that are designed to protect and defend off any pursuing opponent to avoid the quarterback from being sacked. Yet, for the basketball positions, there are five players whom each have a particular job to execute. The point guard position sets up the  offense so the team can carry out a play. Next is the shooting guard, this position is performed by a player that runs back and forth along the baseline to find and open shot. Furthermore, the small forward and power forward are two different positions that have similar duties. Both of these  positions are expected to set picks on defensive players and create alleyways for the point guard to dribble through and score. In addition, the small forward and power forward are entitled to shoot and dribble the ball if needed. Football and basketball are two of the nation’s most watched sports. That is why it is important to know the difference between the two. In football, players wear: a helmet, jersey,  padded pants, chest pads, cleats, and a mouth piece. They play on a field that is either grass or turf and is 100 yards long and 160 feet wide. The field is divided by ten yard lines and has a goal  post at each end. The positions in football consist of: the quarterback, running back, full back, wide receiver, tight end and offensive line. However in basketball, the players wear: a jersey, shorts, high ankle shoes, and head band. They play on a wooden court that is ninety-four feet long and fifty feet wide. The court is divided by a half court line and has a basketball hoop at each end. The positions in basketball are: point guard, shooting guard, small forward, power forward, and center. What do you think about the differences between football and basketball? Are the sports similar or different in a way? Both of these sports excite millions of fans each year, and will be embedded in American culture forever. Although football and basketball are very well known sports and have the same intentions, they are both different in many ways, such as: uniforms, domain, and the players’ position.  Thus, we should know the difference between those sports, so to see the difference between it, we can find it by looking at the match, read an article about that sport and so on.
