A safety occurs when the team with offensive possession of the ball has backward motion into their endzone and is brought down. The defensive team is awarded two points and possession of the ball after a free kick by the offensive team.

A Safety plays football. a safety has nothing to do with this basketball. If a safety did play in basketball (which it doesn't) it would probably guard its own net from the other team.

RS = right safety LS= left safety. some teams use this setup but more commonly you will see strong and free safety

If you are referring to the position, a safety is the approximate equivalent to the free safety position in American football. (The strong safety position is replaced by two "halfbacks", since there are 12 men to a side in Canadian football.) In scoring a safety is the same thing as in American football. If a player is tackled within his own end zone or steps out of the back of his own end zone the opposing team is awarded two points for a "safety" and the tackled player's team is then required to kick the ball off to their opponents.
