The game starts with one team being delirious and the other depressed. Likewise each set of fans. The ball is in the net of the depressed team.
The idea is to score a 'kick-off'. To do this, the happy team has to get the ball out of the net and onto the centre spot - and here's the hard bit - with
all the players assuming their starting positions. During play, and shortly after the ball is removed from the net, each team's attitude changes to one of determination/aggression/banality/idiocy depending on normal team/individual behaviour.
After a kick-off has been scored the teams decide by lot which one now assumes the happy/sad role, the ball is placed in the net of the sad team and the game continues.
Teams may start with a minimum of 7 players and introduce a new one each time the referee produces a red card, apparently at random, up to a maximum of 11 players. The new player's first action must be to abuse the referee or to kick or punch an opposing player.
Fans buy programmes, souvenirs etc. after the match has finished then go home to watch Football Focus followed by shopping with the wife or some light DIY.

||Yep an intriguing variation but surely nothing can surpass the drama and excitement of the original. But if we do go for reverse-football, do the Americans give a special name, like reverse-soccer? Revoccer, ug!
||well this is a very far fetched idea maybe you could have a governing body that tests players for anti depressants and caffiene as well
||We Americans would call it Extreme Soccer. Or Ultimate Soccer. Or Extreme Ultimate Soccer...
||This sounded lame, up until //The new player's first action must be to abuse the referee or to kick or punch an opposing player.// Extra violence = better sport. bun, which becomes a bone in the spirit of your opposite sport.
||How about trying to help society, rather
than encourage people to destroy it? After
all, it's not like you need to 'reverse'
football to encourage violence and
thuggery. Have a bone.
