I think you have the rules of game down pat, earmuffs. It's one of the better games out there.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Ha - I used to watch this many years ago -pre-interwebz- in the middle of the night after work. I was just at the point of figuring it out when they replaced it's regular time slot with something completely boring. I always wondered if it was some new game they were trying to invent and openly sort out. I never really heard more about it so, I may have eventually chocked it up to a work exhaustion induced hallucination. Shy

I bet you did. It apparently has a lot of similarities to Gaelic football, but predates it according to Wikipedia.

There are quite a few similarities between Aussie Rules and Gaelic Football. So much so that for many years, there have been competitions between Irish and Australian teams using compromise rules. But there's also quite a few differences.

To be perfectly honest, while we've had some exciting games and exciting series, it seems to strike most people as being neither fish nor fowl. Players and spectators on both sides aren't really happy with playing a "bastardized" version of their beloved games. Both sides have stated at times that the series shouldn't continue. It has limped on, but its future is difficult to predict.

If anyone's interested, you can check Wiki on "International Rules". I'm sure there's a few tubes on youtube.

Than take the distance between the mid point and the top of your leg and half it again. This is where the bottom of your shorts should not be lower than.
For those that think I'm exaggerating you are more than welcome to youtube an AFL game and see for yourself.

2) If you try to score a goal but miss your teammates HAVE to pat you on the bum.

3) You must be a tall skinny white man with a disgusting Australian accent.

4) In regards to 3) the one exception is if you are a tall black man with an afro.

5) You HAVE to be constantly feeling up the guy you're marking on the other team. Just constantly stroking his body.

...

11) There must be as many people on the field as humanly possible.

Why are you complaining? Sounds like your kind of sport Tongue
