For a left-foot redhead who can't run, can't jump and can't kick.... he amazes how much of the ball he gets? Respect.
*****cats would've been belted if he wasn't out there.
Ahh Timmy Rabo don´t make your country and wonderful sport smaller than it is.Timmy-loves-Rabo said:Although I agree nothing compares to the football you speak off(my favorite, or at maybe a 2nd to cycling, sport), our aussie version is pretty awesome also
Was only 8 at the time, but that brings back bad memories. Especially after the Music City Miracle and the run to the Super Bowl. Curse you!FoxxyBrown1111 said:Aussie Rules compares best to real real Football and rugby.
But the real real Football has the advantage of them all. It´s because of the introduction of the forward pass in 1906: The greatest rule change in the history of sports...
BTW, remember the 1999 Titans: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4lcsyEIyEo
The best Super-Bowl ever. I cheered for Warner´s boys
Good video of Aussie Football. You can see the action is a lot like the greatest Game, only that there´s more kicking in Australia ;-)
Yep, that video made me wince quite a few times!FoxxyBrown1111 said:Same goes with me. Only the other way round. You should know i like the "new wave" fopotball: Passing the ball efficient as many times as possible. And Warner showed it perfect in 1999. What a great game and memories.
Yeah Aussie is cool. The same hard hitting and WR-Style-Catching, but w/o pads. Wow!
Tmmy, your mob were carrying on like they won the Grand Final last night. Ling is an old hack. He should retire.Timmy-loves-Rabo said:haha, love em mate
for anyone who watched the game, how good did ling play for the cats.
AFL is a free flowing, fast, hard, high scoring game. Great game.jobiwan said:I gotta say I don't really know that much about it.
Obviously here in the States, American Football is king among the foot-and-ball sports, but we get plenty of Soccer info on ESPN. But not so much on rugby but I enough about it.
Aussie Rules: I have no idea what it is.
I feel like an idiot, but what's the best comparison sport to Aussie Rules?
nah I love 'soccer' and I grew up in an AFL infleunced state.FoxxyBrown1111 said:Ahh Timmy Rabo don´t make your country and wonderful sport smaller than it is.
Aussie Rules football is 1.000 times more interesting than soccer. Pipo only like Soccer because they are grown up with it and are overdosed on TV with it, thus missing all the other great sports (Cycling, Gaelic Football, Am. Football, Hurling, Aussie Rules, Ice-Hockey, Billards, Track & Field, etc. etc.). I mean there is no greater waste of time than watching 0-0 and 1-0 games with 70% referee influence in the outcomes of games...
Yes, but the best kicks in the AFL such as guys like Buckley were good kicks from the start of their careers. The thing is with the AFL drafting of young players is that they are drafting athletes and not necessarily footballers if you know what I mean.Timmy-loves-Rabo said:@acf he is still young, he has a might leap and excellent work rate.
I dislike rugby a lot
I'm also more of a league fan, but agree that AFL is best watched live at the ground.craig1985 said:I'm more of a rugby league fan, but AFL is a sport best watched live at the ground. I was the MCG last year for Hawthorn and Essendon, it was a cold night, but I did have a lot of fun at the game.
