Obviously, it would be lighter without anything on, but if you find that being light is an importance, than you can buy some pads that are lighter, as well as cleats.

What are the rules about tackling in Gaelic Football?

There is no specific legal tackle in Gaelic Football, unlike some other field games. A player can be hit shoulder to shoulder, which is the closest there is to a tackle. It is called "a shoulder" in the game. You cannot pull down a player or shoulder them from the front or behind, or push or trip them. Most of what you have to do is prevent them from playing the ball or rob them of possession, or intercept a pass or block a kick.

Why is it a penalty for a football player to remove his helmet after the play is over?

This is known as the Emmitt Smith rule. He was fond of taking his helmet off after scoring a touchdown to rile up (or taunt) the crowd...and perhaps for better photo opportunities. The league considered this to be too much showmanship and created a rule that no player is allowed to remove his helmet on the field during the game (except during timeouts and between quarters). There is no penalty if a helmet comes off accidentally.

What is the green dot on Peyton Manning's helmet for?

The green dot on his helmet indicates that he is wearing a helmet with speakers in it so the coach can comunicate with him on the field. The reason for the dot is so the refs can see who is wearing this type of helmet as it is a penalty to have more than one player on the field at a time wearing this type of helmet. If you notice, all quarterbacks in the NFL have a green dot on the back of their helmets.
