football player Football has overtaken baseball as the most watched sport in America, and its popularity continues to grow.  The Super Bowl alone is watched by more Americans every year than any other televised event.  Even college football has become a mainstay in homes across the country.  This trend has increasingly elicited interest in young people, fueling their desire to play the game.

Protective gear is your main concern when purchasing football equipment.  You'll need a helmet that fits snugly but not tightly, a mouthpiece (optionally with a facemask attachment), and then all of the football padding that you need to protect the rest of your body.  Most often, you'll find football pads sold as a complete set.  Sometimes, however, you might want different equipment like a neck guard, which is commonly sold separately.

Flag football is different, mainly because protective gear is much less important due to the lack of tackling.  Flag football players require the flag belt and ample flags for each player, usually two per person.  Flag belts are often sold in team packs, with enough belts for two six to 10 man teams, plus spare flags, should you lose one or two.
