I think aikido can be applied in football.
So i was watching a bunch of tough sweaty men bumping into each other and chasing the ol' pigskin and then it hit me! WHY NOT TRY TO KOSHINAGE YOUR WAY INTO TOUCHDOWN! I think that's totally awesome and it brings a whole new meaning to aikido. I seriously consider this the best idea i've ever had and i'm considering learning aikido solely to be able to buy a major league team and make them kick ass on the field Ueshiba style,don't you think that would be absolutely awesome...someone should really do that...i can't even contain myself i think i'm about to ejacuate
Or someone should at least make a movie about it like the kung fu soccer one and the muay thai basketball one. Someone think of a cool name for it pls.
Steven Seagal stars in a new feature film about a high school football team in the gutter, and their only chance at winning it big is to master the art of aikido to dominate the gridiron. Steven Seagal stars in, "Receiver of Inner Harmony"
EDIT: I see you are from Europe. Well, in the country of the free, football is a manly sport with tackles being perfectly fine and whatnot (no red or yellow cards for being a meany). Thar would be a truly amazing sport to utilize aikido principles.
EDIT EDIT: I see now you are referring to our football.

ANywya do you mean this koshinage? YouTube- C.Tissier Sensei - KOSHINAGE
How are you going to hold the ball while you use 2 hands the throw the guy? Even if you do find some aikido that works in t3h f13lds it'll only work until the powrs that be ban it. Just ask the Melbourne storm.
"Developing Martial Arts/Grappling Skills in Offensive Linemen presents a comprehensive overview of grappling techniques that offensive linemen can use to enhance their performance. In an easy-to-understand and apply manner, the DVD explains and demonstrates how selected martial arts skills can be adapted for both pass-pro and run blocking.
Among the topics covered: biomechanical and physical principles involved in martial arts, minimal effort counters to defensive line moves, pressure points that lock bones and can cause discomfort, identifying and correcting common flaws, and unique and effective run-blocking techniques.
This football offensive line training video is presented by Mark Miller of Samurai Football. Running time of this teaching football video is 51 minutes and was produced in 2007"
I've often though that Judo would be a good cross training discipline for football, as most of the throws would not be considered fouls, and the focus on developing a "solid base" could only be beneficial, as would rolling.
However, successful teams seem to be the ones that focus on training to win football games, and not the ones training in some gimic they think "could" win a football game.
Gimmicks are a distraction from the actual goal.
For example, the Raiders seem to specialize in vaudevillian prat falls and other slapstick chicanery. They spend so much time trying to konck everybody down in a comical manner, that they never even bother trying to get that football to the endzone.
E.I. you want your football team playing football, not doing Aikido.
Not only the guy with the ball has to do/recieve tackles. But there are techniques with one hand too anyway. Also, koshinage was the first name that came in my mind so yeah... My poit was a professional football player (yes that's american football for you smart guys) is a dream uke for every aikidoka. The type they'll never find on t3h s7r33t5.

Oh and by the way, two words: chun hockey.
Or they could spend more time practacing football... since thats what they are paid to do...
edit- I also think the OP is retarded
Really, why? I don't do aikido or play grid iron so I'm really curious.
