    Salve a tutti,
    qualcuno ne capisce di football americano?
    Che cos'è un "No take"?
    Nel mio testo si parla di bambini che stanno giocando e stabilendo le regole, ad un certo punto, oltre a -no take-,
    uno esclama:
    "Three no takes unless we want it!"

    Grazie!!

    Roberta,

    I have been watching American football for a long time (longer than you've been alive!) and I have never heard this phrase or a rule based on it. Do you have a little more context which might help us figure out what this phrase should be. Was this from a written source or a verbal source? I need a little help to help you.

    Thanks.

    Phil

    Ciao,
    è un saggio che riguarda la psicologia del gioco e il gioco in generale nella vita degli esseri umani.
    In questa parte vengono descritti dei bambini che organizzano così su due piedi una partita

    In the middle of the ball's trajectory, Linny yells at the top of his lungs, "No take!" Play stops immediately and a big argument takes place, with Linny finally winning the argument and adding a new "Three no takes unless we want it" to the game. The game goes on.
