Thanks, just as I thought.
The reason why there are so many English phrases is because American Football is not a typical Norwegian and few people play it. Therefore, most of the words related to American Football would just be the english equivalent as there are no Norwegian words for it.
There are so many words here where Norwegian seems to just take the English phrase. Is that because that particular phrase doesn’t have a suitable translation from any other Norwegian sport, so it’s just easier to take the English phrase?
