You must be nuts. This is an article on Soccer. Football doesn't have 'Netminders', 'Goalkeepers', 'keepers', or 'Goalies'.

Real hockey, sometimes mistakenly Americanized as "Field Hockey", only has one person completely insulated against the possibility of pain, thanks to astronaut-sized body armour. Unlike "American Football", a game started by a big punt.
