Massive Fans Blowing From Either Endzone

Pushes the defensive team forward, until they get into the other team's side of the field...

at which time the fans blowing from the other team's end zone make moving forward harder the closer you get.

So you're on your own ten yard line, you throw a pass, it's got a 50 mile per hour wind behind it, that thing's gonna sail. But once you get into enemy territory, the wind's blowing against you. Your passes will be shorter, you'll be running against the wind instead of with it but you might even be able to use it to your advantage. Might be able to do a "U shaped pass" where you throw it up such that it turns back and lands in your receiver's arms.

And yes, you could do the same thing for soccer too.

       Thought this might be an idea for the opposing team's fat supporters inflating two giant balloons until they meet in the middle and the game is (mercifully) blotted out. (any team game will do - they're all equally moronic to me)

       Or just make the field parabolic.

       Where does the wind blow to?

       Both are blowing inwards towards the 50 yard line, at which point you might even get some interesting interaction between the two airflows.

       A big half-pipe then? The skateboards would suffer with the grass, but the BMXers might be good value for the half-time show!

       I'd combine this with the entire playing area being on a massive rotating turntable, so that there are some interesting coriolis or centripetal forces experienced by players running down the field, and it would also be good to get some magnetic forces in there as well

       Oooh, a rotating magnetic field, but with a different axis & speed to the rotating actual field; magnets on players boots or belt or something. So you'd get all sorts of weird periodic interactions. Plus the blowers, of course.

       American football for the nerds? I'll bun that.
