Lots of sports have balls. There are many that have not been used yet.

Javelins, armadillos, and rhubarb pie haven't been used as game pieces yet, either. Just sayin'. [/irreverent]

Neither have frisbees, boomerangs, or Jell-o...

I think that the reason that footballs come up often is because of their different shape. Everything else that Dave just listed off is spherical, and footballs are not.

I'm rooting for something square. When was the last time we had something with sides?

This is pretty much a definitive red herring. It presents some plausible information, yet does so obscurely so we can't tell whether it is valid information about the game or not. We won't know until kickoff whether the information applies or not.

As opposed to an official clue, which presents some valid information about the game, but in an obscure fashion so that we can't discern anything definitive about the game. We might decode the clue, but we won't know until kickoff.

Right, so when new members of new teams join CD and wonder about this, as happened in the Game Hint thread, we can provide this as an example and say it all connects?

Re: The Difference Between Red Herring Clues And Official Game Hints

Dave's locomotive is am image from lastfm.de's video of CCR's song "The Midnight Special". To me this means I'll often be up until midnight in the near future, and whatever it is, it's "special".

How does he DO that, predicting the future and all?

You forgot hockey pucks...

Other than footballs, I don't care what they have for a game piece. I just want there to be something on the side of the field for me to lean on in between matches. My feet hurt from those long days.

Maybe we can convince the GDC to incorporate La-Z-Boy chairs into the playing field. That would be awesome.

That was the game where I learned a very powerful lesson in Gracious Professionalism and what it was and what it meant. After I learned the lesson, I wanted to learn more about Gracious Professionalism and about Dr. Woodie Flowers. It's been an amazing journey, starting with that one lesson.

Nope, they weren't forgotten, just intentionally excluded from the answer. The preceding question was specifically about sports with balls. Hockey pucks, no matter how intriguing as a game piece, did not fit the original criteria.

In the mean time, the idea of La-Z-Boy chairs as part of the play field is very intriguing. I am sure such an idea will require a long and very arduous test phase to determine exactly which model of chair is most appropriate as both a field element and referee station. As part of this test phase, I would expect to see Aidan sleeping on the job for most of the upcoming season.
