I think the most problem with gif is that there must be any frequent
refresh, not depending whether there are changes or not.
I am not familar with flash player but maybe there could be any funktion
to wait for a new event without rebuilding the background.
On the other hand nobody needs to load a flash player with animated
gifs. The biggest image would be the background, but this would be
available in the cache.

Gif animations loop, you can set how many times when making the
gif from 1 loop to infinite. But remember that the user also can
set limits to the looping in some browser.

If this background is a decoration, make it so it looks nice even
if it is not moving. You might have to think a little out of the
square to make it a bit abstract and faint (with few colours) to
reduce the size of it.

Can you describe what you want to do in a little more detail please?

Do you want to make a one player soccer game where the person browsing
your site can play some kind of soccer game?

In real time (eg they move the player around with the arrow keys or
something) or turn by turn (eg you give them some options and they
click the option they want to do, the game updates, you give them some
options etc.)
