    Football fields???? Why do people insist in using a useless meaningless expression as some sort of distance measurement? I have yet to find a conversion chart to convert “footfall fields” to a useful accepted measurement such as feet, yards, inches, centimeters, meters or other recognized distance.

    People use many variations of measurement to explain distance, how far away something is, how long/far away was the shot taken from.

    BUT.....

    How long is a night-crawler? Well...which one: European, Garden, Canadian, African, Red? How young, old, a newborn? They all vary a lot?

    How wide is an oak leaf? Which one: Red, White, Blue, Gray, Bowthorpe, Southern Live, Seven Sisters, Major, Crouch, Friendship, Royal? They all vary a lot?

    Now an NFL football field which is the one commonly used is ONLY 300-ft/100-yds long goal line to goal line plus 30-ft/10-yds x2 = 60-ft/20-yds for the two end zones for a total of 360-ft/120-yd long overall.

    Or a Canadian football field which is 330-ft/110-yds long goal line to goal line plus 30-ft/10-yds x2 for the two end zones = 60-ft/20-yds for a total of 450-ft/150-yds long over all.

    Or do you mean a soccer field sometimes referred to as a football field. They can be a minimum of 300-ft/100yds to a maximum of 390-ft/130-yds long?

    So personally if someone says: "I saw a 19-pointer and I took the shot", and they say: "It was a one-shot drop & it was a-boot two football fields away"!

    I think in the calculation's as if it was; about 600-ft/200-yds away. YMMV but that's my story & I'm stickin to it.

    Kind ah reads like a Monte Python move...
    Bridgekeeper: Stop. Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see.
    Bridgekeeper: Hee, hee, heh!! What...is your name?
    King Arthur: It is 'Arthur', King of the Britons.
    Bridgekeeper: What...is your quest?
    King Arthur: To seek the Holy Grail.
    Bridgekeeper: What...is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
    King Arthur: What do you mean? An African or European swallow?
    Bridgekeeper: Huh? Well...I...I don't know that.....
    [he the Bridgekeeper, is thrown over the edge of the cliff & into the volcano]
    Bridgekeeper: Screaming as he's flung;....Auuuuuuuugh!!!!!!
    Sir Bedevere: How do know so much about swallows?
    King Arthur: Well, you have to know these things when you're a king, you know.

I have yet to find a conversion chart to convert “footfall fields” to a useful accepted measurement such as feet, yards, inches, centimeters, meters or other recognized distance.

    One afternoon I was EXACTLY 3 and one half days journey away from my home and only about eight furlongs away from my destination when I asked myself the very same question. In fact I wrote that very same question down when this person was trying to describe a distance to me in football fields and I had to convert that to cubits and the actual measurement was STILL two span and one handbreath short!
    So I simply added a tadbit to the distance and then another smidgen after that...and then it was pretty much dead on the money.
