Flip the Field was started by two women who both love the game of football. At some point in our lives (check out our stories ), we realized that loving football gave us a distinct advantage over other women who did not. Guys LOVE a woman who can talk football with them, or any sport for that matter. We were never going to be considered ‘football widows’ and will always be invited to the games.
It is important to be able to talk football in a social setting, regardless of being male or female. You will miss out on too many conversations and opportunities if you can’t join in. If you have not been a football fan your entire life, this is the place for you to learn just enough to be dangerous and eliminate those embarrassing situations of not knowing what happened over the weekend. We have got your back!
So, we hope you enjoy a fun and light-hearted way of understanding football. Yes, we explain the basics and more detailed components of the game, but we also hope to teach you to love it by giving you the tools you need to talk it up at a sports bar or with the significant other in your life and by bringing the basics of the game back home through player profiles and insights that make you want to watch what happens next in an individual’s or team’s journey to accomplish all that they can be. Oh, and we plan on making you laugh…a lot.
What is Flip the Field in Football?
There is an expression in football called “flip the field.” It essentially means that one team is winning the battle of field position. Of course, if you are new to football, the idea of field position is probably Greek to you, so let us explain. When one team gets the ball and tries to move the ball towards their goal, the closer they are to that goal the better, right? Well, where you are on the field is your field position. If you start closer to your goal than your opponent does, then that means you are winning the field position. When you make that happen quickly, then you just flipped the field.
The double meaning comes from the concept of this website where we are trying to help those who don’t already know everything learn more about football. If we are successful and you understand the game better than the know it all’s in your life, then we have “flipped the field” on them too!
