What is the greatest sport in the world, and why is it AFL
I'll be honest, as someone who is pretty ok with American Football and can actually enjoy watching it at times, I wish AFL or Rugby would have risen in it's spot.
Rugby faggot lol
Your sport is full of fags who shove fingers up each others ass holes..
All we got in AFL is a bunch of blokes who cant stop sleeping with other blokes wifes, and then the druggys at essendon and collingwood (lol)
Nah. Rugby is all head on hits and stop start. Aussie rules hits are blind side, aerial, plus the aerobic requirements make rugby players look like lard arses... which they are. Of course you hit harder when your sport alllows you to carry 15kg of KFC around and doesnt require changing direction.
Implying a game that has 4 15 minute halfs where half of the game is the players talking to coaches or to each other.
okay m8, you spend three hours watching that crap id rather watch footy
>15kg of KFC
Top fucking kek
Although Josh Hunt who used to play for GWS is a fookin beast
Racing involves both left and right turns (literally any car racing outside of drag racing or any form of american racing)
Contact sports that dont have you covered in padding (soccer is shit, NFL is shit, Basket ball is shit, Rugby and AFL gets a pass)
Women sports that involve lots of skin or flexibility (gymnastics and female volley ball)
Literally anything created by America
FUCK OFF WITH YOUR FUCKIN HOCKEY YOU FUCKLESS FUCK. THIS IS ABOUT FOOTY.
I think you meant to do something like this?
blah blah blah never won a premiership
Lay off it cunts, Fremantle has a heart like no other god forsaken city in all of Australia.
>inb4 Melbourne faggots and muh Carlton
>sport we get beaten at by the Irish
irish have never played us at aussie rules. they are too soft for it, so we have to use a soccer ball, not tackle, play on a soccer field and use soccer goals.
its really tough to kick a soccer ball hand to foot. something they get heaps of practice at and we... dont.
we would anally abuse them at aussie rules.
>Fremantle has a heart like no other god forsaken city
>like no other
fuck you got that one right, whenever you go into Fremantle it's pretty much populated by bums and bogans. It shows in the sort of crowds you guys generate. I went to the prelim final vs the hawks last year and you guys made collingwood supporters look middle class.
so much butthurt melbfags
>but why doesnt a cultural hub like melbahhn have little creatures why did perth have to invent it muh small bars muh craft beer
One of the greatest PSG player of all time
Just because a game involves people running into each other, it doesn't make it good.. by that logic UFC is great :/
Hurling is better than aussie rules, fastest field sport in the world.
>so much butthurt melbfags
you obviously didn't read my response where I pretty much state that I live in the west, congratulations on reinforcing the dockers supporter stereotype you flog
Football (real football not aussie fags we wear hotpants or American armour egg blast) is the best sport, highest paid and known players in the world, most skill, best athletes.
Inb4 "its gay" when you're watching men half naked, grapple holding each others semi erect dicks, thrusting into each other whilst "pretending" to hold a ball.. Why do they need to use foreplay to play a sport?
>dockers supporter stereotype
but to be fair, they are soo shit for so long with so much easy material to sling shit at them it with its understandable that they develop OTT defence mechanisms.
gotta suck for them once pav, sandilands, mundy, barlow etc all retire at once and they still havent won a flag and are looking down the barrel of yet another 5-10 years of crapness to add to the last 20.
My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you have to stop immediately.'. Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exactly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me- 'Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through." I agreed. At 28, I have never touched a cigarette. I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because your post gave me cancer anyway.
What's true is that too many players are faggots and try to abuse the referees
TV changed the game on that point and we need to find an efficient solution to deal with it, fines, suspensions, public shaming
soccer is the most fucking boring sport in the world. multi billion dollar collections of princesses falling down all over the field for yet another nil all draw or perhaps someone actually manages to score.
no wonder the crowds get violent. they are there to be entertained and half the time they are more entertaining than the actual sport.
That is a weak ass hit
Rugby has endurance over American football, that's it. American football is a real gladiators sport. If you can't have your brain scrambled or your neck snapped then your sport isn't that rough.
Spot on. Honestly I'd feel sorry for them if they didn't have some of the worst fans in the AFL. Being a blues supporter myself (pls roast me /b/) I can empathize with people having to support a team going absolutely nowhere for 20 years, but I won't tolerate fuckwits.
No, I've had my bell rung with none of that and involving no sport but on a more related note, there are numerous full contact sports around the world but only two of them allow their players to wear padding, others just take their concussions with good grace and move on.
and so now we reach the centre of the fucking shrubbery maze.
a north river elitist who is too good to support the eagles so he claims to be always hawthorn as of 5 years ago
>assuming I'm from north of the river
>assuming I'm a hawks supporter because i stated the fact you guys are hawthorns bitch
Please stop now before you embarrass yourself some more.
as opposed to any docker supporter over the age of about 30 who claimed they 'didnt follow the afl before the dockers came in' ?
yours is a club populated by turncoats and traitors. you are getting the onfield success you deserve.
I love when aussiefags only response is "well ruby players don't need armor and take their injuries like men". Like, why would you willingly choose to be injured? If wearing some padding prevents injuries and still allows me to play, why not take full advantage of it? If you knew you were going to be in a car wreck and had to choose a car with air bags or one without, why would you not go with the ones with them? It honestly makes not sense. So continue calling American Football players bitches for wearing the "armor" whilst playing, because the only thing you're doing is reinforcing the point that they're as tough as rugby players but a whole lot smarter.
