Nearly AFL Season
« on: February 06, 2012, 05:32:44 PM »
My favourite time of the year is nearly here, bring it on :D



Ever wonder where those Australian punters come from ? this is the sport they played before they went over to the NFL.

Huh, cool.

Was hoping you weren't talking about the Arena league last night haha.
If I could start my life all over again, I would be a professional football player, and you damn well better believe I would be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

Aha, so that's why the Australian rules punters scramble to the right before unloading the kick.

Two new expansion teams with 18-20 year old kids will do that.      ...but these guys are going to be strong in 4 or 5 years.


As for Saturdays Grand Final, Go the SWANNIES!!!!

WOW. what a dominant quarter. hawthorne better wake up or this will be a rout.

That was a huge quarter for the Swans. They need to keep the foot on the pedal, Hawthorn can score a lot of points very quickly.
