    AFL

    Australian Football League also known as Aussie Rules.

    i was just talknig to Frisko and he didnt know what this is.
    NO This is not soccer! its our game in australia its been here for about 110 years or so.

    Anyway its an amazing sport, we get crowds of about 50-60 thousand and in a small country like ares thats big.

    anyway, we play with a ball thats shaped like a nfl ball (sort of).

    Aim is to kick the ball inbetween the 2 big posts. we play with 18 players on the field.

    Plz, take 2 minutes to watch this video. id like to know what yous think. Even though its sort.

    The firt bit is someone kicking a goal, 2nd bit is someone marking the ball.

    I saw it. It was good, particularly good for me because I bet $10 on "EITHER TEAM BY 15 PTS OR LESS' at $3.15. Sydney won by 4. Not bad, eh?

    I do tipping just for fun, spend about 5 mins on it every week and won $30 this year so that's good.

    Other than that, I don't really care for the sport.

    i think its obvious im not comparing AFL to soccer because that the Aleague has only started to establish itself.

    I mean AFL > Rugby

    Anyway were meant to be talkin bout the grand final!! we had 91 thousand there and when the MCG is done it will fit like 120,000.

    Being from perth are u disappointed in anyway? i am i hate sydney. Anyway primo was there alot of build up on the news or on the steets in grand final week?

    There was a lot of build up everywhere, lots of yellow and blue around the city.

    I'm not disappointed as I don't support any AFL team, in fact I was really happy with the result because I won money.

    Is this the game with the somewhat circular field? And kinda like rugby? I think I watched if once when I was on school camp in New Zealand. Looks fun. And, I got to admit, touch rugby is awesome!

    The difference between AFL and rugby is HUGE.

    And cricket sucks. It's the worst sport in the world. It's mainly popular amongst the Indians etc.. and the Anglo-Saxon communities in Australia. So I guess it is pretty popular.

    Me, though, I can't stand that shit. That's just me though.

    Similar. Except we are much more original.

    Every ?year? we play Ireland in International rules football, its so far ties at 6 series all. Those games get so heated, theres always fights.

    Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIGREZw4Sr4 LOLOL forget red cards, we don have them.

    Seriously though, Gaelic sucks, AFL is top.

    Chris Jud is great, during the final Sydney had some troubles stopping him, so many missed tackles on him!!

    Helal, do you have a clip of Lynch? he was a great player!!

    Bro Chriss Judd is a magician. I admire him so much, His an absolute freak. Just too good.

    Lynch is a star. He started his career as a full back and was awesome there. Then he got up front and blitzed it!!

    Great player. I remember his fight with the doping comission though.
