Decided to make this thread after seeing all of the Australian Canucks fans on this website and realising that there was no Australian Football League thread. I also wanted to see how many Canadians know anything about Aussie rules.

Watched the Grand Final that was on Friday, former Canadian rugby player, Mike Pyke, played for Sydney. Still have to watch the second half, will do that later today.

I REALLY respect those athletes, because no doubt it's a brutal sport, but there is clearly a reason it is only popular in half of Australia.(Rugby is bigger in other parts on the nation). The rules are so confusing.

It depends on what part of the country you're from. I know a lot of people in Melbourne find rugby confusing. It is just a matter of what sport you grow up with.
