In a game dominated by defense, the Hurricanes hammered the Carolina Express 41-0 to win MLFN’s AA National Championship.
«To reach this point so quickly is incredible,» said Hurricanes head coach John Starlin. «I really feel like a proud father to all of those guys.»
While the ‘Canes’ offense was strong, the play of their defense was dominant. The ‘Canes forced eight turnovers and controlled the Express’ offense, which towered over them in size and power. Early in the contest, it looked like the Express were going to use their Power I offensive attack to run right down the throat of the ‘Canes’ defense. When the Express were forced to throw, however, the speedy Hurricane secondary was able to take the game away. The first of four Express interceptions was thrown on that opening drive, and the Hurricanes never looked back.
«They were a tough team to scout, but I really think they underestimated our speed,» said Starlin. «Other coaches from their league were able to help me out as far as scouting, but I knew as solid as our defense was that we could play with anybody.»
Staying with the defensive theme of the game, linebacker Deon Smith was awarded the game’s MVP for his 12 tackle performance. He also intercepted a pass and forced a fumble.
The AA national title was the perfect end to a season that was already storybook for the Indianapolis squad, founded by co-owners Starlin, David Day, and NFL wide receiver Reggie Wayne. In their first year of existence, the Hurricanes were awarded Best New Team in the Midwest by MLFN after finishing 13-1 in the Ohio Valley Football League (OVFL).

In recent years social media has evolved from a communication tool between people to a dominant driving force on the World Wide Web. Nowadays social media has a huge impact not only on the digital realm, but also on business, politics, trends and almost all aspects of our world.
A common assumption is that social networks are totally driven by people, but that is partially incorrect, in reality social networks are driven by dominant forces and media giants. In reality people are not shaping social media, but social media is shaped for them and they just follow, which is a sad reality by itself because social networks were supposed to be driven by the people not the other way around.
How this is related to football. Football is the most popular sport on earth, more than 3.4 Billion people watched world cup 2010, almost half of the planet! And it was estimated that about 1 billion people watched world Cup 2014 final between Germany and Argentina. Traditionally football has always been covered by TV, newspapers and news websites. But in recent years social networks started taking an important portion of this coverage.

Although football has good presence in top social networks but for football enthusiasts that presence is lacking or not enough, for instance you still do not get updated with all football events, and as a football fan you will need to do exhausting search to follow all the pages you are interested in. Other problem is that football news are buried inside swarm of posts from all other subjects, where you cannot easily filter out posts that are not related to football.
Football fans deserve their own social network where they can talk exclusively about football and share related news and stories. They need social channels that are dedicated for football fans, where they can meet, interact and share football passion. They need a place where they can follow the latest news and matches results without the need to leave to search for the information.
In a new world governed by social media, people are becoming addicted to the ease of access to information that social media provides. And because people are obsessed with ease of access to what they are interested in, the future of social media will be shifting towards niche social networks that are specialized in specific interests and affinities.

However, in restricted sense, the sport of football is limited to only what is popularly known as soccer in some countries. It is played by most of the counties in the world and also very popular with majority of the sports-loving people.
Let us introduce ourselves to some football news from ancient past and modern days.
History of Football
Football has been played from the ancient times though in different forms. In other words, the game has evolved dramatically over the years. In accordance with FIFA, the governing body of world football, the modern-day football originated from a competitive sport namely ‘Cuju’. There are scientific evidences in support of FIFA’s claim. Cuju seems to be the first competitive sport that involved foot-kicking of the ball through an open passage into the net.
Cuju means ‘kick ball’. The game was included in a military manual as a part of exercise from the 3rd and 4th centuries BC. There are documented evidences of football-resembling activities in Zhan Guo, the Chinese military manual. The manual was compiled between the 3rd as well as 1st century BC. From the historical evidences, it is now sure that the ancient Romans and Greeks used to play different kinds of ball-games that involved use of feet.
With expansion of the British Empire, football was introduced and popularized in the areas under direct British influence. Distinct regional codes were developed when the nineteenth century was drawing to an end. The Football League was established in England back in 1888. Football, in its different forms, can be traced throughout different periods in history. This league was the first of many professional soccer competitions. In 20th century, different types of football started growing and eventually the sport was recognized as the most popular game worldwide.
Skill in Football
The game of football involves a lot of pace and skill. In addition, the players are required to have a solid physique to withstand tackling which is very common due to physical nature of the game. The game is played between two opponent parties, which could be clubs in the league or countries on the international level. Each party has 11 players including one keeper in front of the net. Body tackling is considered a major skill in football.
Rules of Football
Every form of football has a clearly defined area of playing the game. The number of goals decides the winner of a particular match. A team scores a goal when a player from the team finds the back of the opponents’ net. A shot aimed at the opponents’ net is considered ‘goal’ if the ball passes the defined goalline as clearly mentioned in FIFA rulebook. The winner get three points from a match whereas the loser picks up nothing. If the match is a draw between the two participating teams, each of them earns one point from the game.
Soccer news from regional, national as well as world football is very interesting and football fans always keep a constant watch on the game.
