When We Played Not So Long Ago It Was Just Called The 20 Yard Line. So It Would Be Anything Less Than The 20 Yard Line Of Your Opponents. So 19 Yard Line Would Be The First One.

The 'red zone' is the area of the field between the goal line and the 20 yard line of the defensive team.

The offense is in a good position to score a touchdown or, at the very least, in position to attempt a short field goal. When an offense moves the ball into the red zone, they are expected to end the possession by scoring a touchdown or field goal.

What is the origin of the American football term red zone?

Sorry, but maybe it comes from the business term, "in the red"? :( ANSWER: Good question. I came across this on a sports blog: "There isn't an official explanation from the NCAA or NFL on why the area from the 20 yard-line to the end zone is commonly referred to as the red zone. However, as the majority of the scoring takes place from inside the 20 yard-line, it is believed that the term came about because it is the hottest area of scoring on the field, and generates the most action. Sorry there wasn't a stranger or more exciting explanation. " Rugby sometimes uses the same term for the area inside the 22-meter line, so it could be that football borrowed it from rugby (as it did with many other terms).

Who proposed to make the 20 yard line red in football?

I have a very clear memory of a TV news story that ran in Dallas in the mid 1980's about how a Dallas Cowboys employee suggested that if there were red lines highlighting the 20 yard line, it would be easier for fans sitting in the opposing end zone section to see where the line of scrimmage was in relation to the end zone. Texas Stadium installed the lines, and this was copied by other stadiums. I haven't found a good source that connects the invention of the red lines to the "red zone" concept, but I have always associated the two. By the way, the employee in question? A Texas Stadium Janitor. Now you know the rest of the story. (Bryan in Sachse, TX)

What does zone mean in hockey?

Hi, gonna try to help you with this...There's 3 zones in an ice hockey rink divided by lines, there's 2 blue lines and 1 red line between these 2.If you are defending your net it means you are in your defensvive zone, delimited by the very beginning of the rink and the first blue line.If you advance, and cross this blue line you enter into the neutral zone, which is the zone between the two blue lines with the red line in the middle, and if you pass the second blue line it means your are in the attacking zone, or offensive zone.When you are attacking and the puck is handed by your wingers they should (theorically) never give or pass the puck to your defensive man, which are two and are preventing the puck to go out of the attacking zone standing at the top of the attacking zone, you as a winger are supposed to do plays with the other 2 wingers in the atacking zone, like the box, triangle, set up behind, etc., and never pass it back to your defensive man, if you do this, it means you took it out of the zone.There'e another zone called red zone or blind zone (if i remember correctly), but that's for goalies, which means that the puck is handed most of the times for the against team and it's behind the net, which is really hard for goalies...Hope I helped you with this...Best, alex...

How do you mix the herbicide on steamworks island?

You will need the "dirty beaker" from the museum on Main Street (inside, upper right corner). In the lab of the production zone (far right), you will mix 3 parts of blue, 2 parts green, and 4 parts red. Be careful to stop exactly at each graduated line. The formula is on a poster on the wall nearby. Fill blue to the third line, then green to the fifth line, then red to the ninth (top) line, and you have your herbicide.
