In reality it does not effect the game that drastically. The footing is a bit less stable, however the players simply change cleats to accommodate the wet grass. On turf it actually gets sticker. The passing game is also slightly effected. More through vision than any other factor. Balls (at the pro level) are shuffled in and out after every play, and the receivers keep their hands fairly dry, so in reality, other than making the players a bit uncomfortable, it doesn�t change much.

I imagine it affects it the same way it affects soccer. You slip and slid more, even if they do change into bigger cleated shoes. Ability to hold a block is probably diminished. I wouldn't be surprised if the ball begins to feel like a big rock, just like in soccer. Even if they do change it out! In some ways it might be more fun, or at least more challenging. For both sides!

yes it totally does i mean i think the ball is more slipperier and so is the ground.


It becomes more of a passing game as it becomes more difficult to run on a soggy field
