A bean bag, so that's what that thing is! I knew it was blue and signaled a change of possession, but I always figured it was just another colored flag. This is a good, simple, and informative quiz that I'm sure will manage to surprise those who follow American football only casually.

add bull**** as a bonus
Jan 10th, 2011 at 14:40 GMT
"Who throws a shoe?! Honestly. That really hurt."
Jan 10th, 2011 at 17:43 GMT
fun quiz, might wannna simply make it 1 or 2 minutes though
Jan 10th, 2011 at 18:52 GMT
How about a player out of the game?
Jan 10th, 2011 at 19:10 GMT
@dfoliver: referees can toss players from games, but they can't toss them on the field. Except maybe Ed Hochuli, that guy's a beast
Jan 10th, 2011 at 19:37 GMT
@Djibouti: And Wilbur Hackett Jr. He tossed Stephen Garcia onto the field pretty well in the South Carolina LSU game two years ago.
Jan 10th, 2011 at 20:10 GMT
please add football - refs are always tossing them on and off the field
Jan 10th, 2011 at 20:42 GMT
I agree add footballs, also it's called a coin "toss" so using the excuse that refs "toss" players from games isn't valid. I could see players being on this list, also it would be funny if "games" were given as a bonus answer.
Jan 10th, 2011 at 20:48 GMT
What about a football?
Jan 10th, 2011 at 21:14 GMT
i agree with ball...and i've seen countless GAMES thrown by officials...or is that not really what you're looking for??
Jan 10th, 2011 at 21:27 GMT
If Donovan McNabb was a referee you could add "cookies". LOL
Jan 10th, 2011 at 21:27 GMT
I was thinkking the game...(calvin johnson)
Jan 10th, 2011 at 21:41 GMT
Shoe!!! If there are penalties, refs first throw flag, then hat, than SHOE!!!!! Said it during Eagles game last night
Jan 10th, 2011 at 21:57 GMT
@joshuao yeah, that play was what inspired this quiz, but they were joking when they said that (can't remember if it was Buck or Aikman). According to the rule book, the ref throws a flag, then his hat, then the bean bag
Jan 10th, 2011 at 22:01 GMT
I added some suggestions as bonuses since they do technically fit the question as I worded it
Jan 10th, 2011 at 22:59 GMT
thank you for the shout out to raiders fans.. i feel like they'll never stop bitching about that
Jan 10th, 2011 at 23:19 GMT
what would be cool is if you gave their uses as a bonus after they were answered
Jan 11th, 2011 at 01:16 GMT
I said "bag"...does it have to be a "bean bag" ?
Jan 11th, 2011 at 04:11 GMT
What about the rubber bands that are dropped along the hash marks at approximately the first down spot that often determine whether measuring for the first down is even worth it?
Jan 11th, 2011 at 16:17 GMT
Least guessed answer is 16% right now. I'm curious about how many more people got the bonus(es).
Jan 11th, 2011 at 17:04 GMT
@dxdtdemon I've watched football for years, I used to work as a sportswriter, and my stepfather used to officiate high school football. That being said, I have never heard of or seen these rubber bands you're talking about.
Jan 11th, 2011 at 17:34 GMT
I thought you ment what they trhow in order to mark a penalty in succession...They throw flag, hat, then their shoe
Jan 11th, 2011 at 20:29 GMT
What are these rubber bands??
Jan 12th, 2011 at 00:22 GMT
i loved the bonus for game
Jan 12th, 2011 at 05:49 GMT
what about that magic yellow line that marks the first down line??
Jan 12th, 2011 at 06:47 GMT
you should add screens after the Oregon Auburn game and shoulders like in the south carolina ref
Jan 12th, 2011 at 18:30 GMT
come on--"lunch" or some other variation isn't a bonus too?? :)
Jan 12th, 2011 at 20:55 GMT
Great bonus! Also tried "tantrum" and "fit" to no avail. ;-) This is like a Sporcle version of Family Feud!
Jan 14th, 2011 at 05:10 GMT
I normally don't care about my comment score, but how did I get negative when two of my suggestions were included after I posted them?
Jan 14th, 2011 at 21:26 GMT
@giveupyet, I tried that too!
Jan 15th, 2011 at 00:51 GMT
can you put "spot marker" and some varieties for the bean bag, i got so desperate i typed "that blue thing"
Jan 18th, 2011 at 00:45 GMT
The rubber band is tied around the penalty marker to keep the weights in it.
Apr 3rd, 2011 at 20:23 GMT
The answers are Bean Bag, Penalty Marker, Coin, Hat.

Jan 3rd, 2012 at 21:19 GMT

Jun 20th, 2012 at 00:50 GMT
