Yay for Australia! Up the mighty Eagles!

I think some Americans have enough trouble understanding Cricket, so I don't think they will get AFL :p

We will stick with the real football. Your oval game reminds me of when I was a small boy in Zambia. We didn't have much money, so we played "beat the starving neighbor boy" with sticks and gourds. After a severe pummeling, we usually celebrated by sitting around and letting flies naw on us.

Your game of football vanished years ago. Join the 21st century. The NFL owns joos now.

Ignore him peoples. He hasn't had his medication.

lol...

well i'll let you in on the australian peoples view of American Football (atleast 85-90% of people i have talked about it with)

most of us (from those i've met) believe american football is for pussies because of all the padding and helmets etc you all wear. when australians play rugby and aussies rules football that are both no padding no helmet and hard hitting. admittingly aussie rules football has become softer in recent years compared to the mighty 80s etc.. but thats in the professional league.. in the amatures its still brutal. the amount of times i'v been knocked out of it you wouldnt believe. i should have brain damage by now, lol. and missing a few teeth (thank you mouth gaurd)

but i know that if you guys took off all the protective stuff there would be a heap of injuries and the game would have to be totally re structured to allow such a change. but when i've seen the hard hits in NRL i can see some of those same hard hits in AFL but with no protection clothes. but as i said AFL has become softer in recent years as they punish people heavier for breaking the rules.

The only thing brutal about Gridiron is it's brutal boredom.

I prefer AFL over NFL. More exciting to watch, fast-paced, but NFL is more strategical.

AFL is definately better than NFL I agree its so much more fast paced and exciting,

And I found a great site to watch it on now so I can go anywhere and just login

http://afltv.afl.com.au/ is the link and the best thing is you can watch every AFL game and certain NAB cup games for free so its a bargain really!

AFL is great to watch on the TV if you love watching an ad break every couple of minutes. Between the ad breaks you get to watch drug cheats kick balls around ;)
