"The Murphy Rule", by Paul Korngiebel

League rule 18.4 subsection A line 4: ". . . he who headbutteth the enemy in an unseemly fashion and scampereth away, thus discrediting the valor of his team, shall be suspended forewith and with posthaste dispatch forfeit said right to play against all other enemies for a period of five league matches, including any fun games that might lessen his suffering from being banned, but no longer than the menstrual cycle of a yak, lest such dastardly and cowardly behavior infect his team."
Thus spaketh the Lord of SASL, and the players, though filled with blood lust for the enemy, knew it was good and right, and so gave up their desire to headbutteth the enemy, even when they knew the enemy deserved a good knock on the noggineth.
And thus football became distinct from rugby.

"If", by Rudyard Fergling
If you can keep the ball when all about you
Are falling down and blaming it on you,
If you can keep your cool when other players foul you
But make allowance for their fouling too,
If you can chase and not be tired by chasing,
Or being called offside, don't shout out blame,
If you can score - and not make goals your plan,
If you can pass - and not make praise your aim;
If you can meet with Einstein, Clueless Frank and Stan
And treat those three officials just the same;
If you can fill the Sunday morning
With ninety minutes' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Field and everything that's on it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Gunner, my son!
