Best Answer

In American and Canadian Football, a ball can be passed forward from behind the line of scrimmage. If the ball falls on the ground it is called an incomplete pass. That means no one caught it. It can also be called an incomplete. That is a short way of saying "It is an incomplete forward pass."

Is Football and hockey an incomplete or complete sentence why or why not?

If written as "Football and hockey" with nothing else stated, it is an incomplete sentence. Always ask yourself, what about (any subject like) football and hockey? For example, if I wrote "hot dogs and beans" it would not be a complete thought, but more like a store list. It is missing an actor (subject) and action (verb). Examples: I play football and hockey. Football and hockey are my favorite sports. I ate hot dogs and beans for lunch. The hot dogs and beans tasted awful.
