I love playing Aussie rules football (via the GGAFL). Its fast paced, hard hitting, continuous play with a ton of skill. Plus the guys out there are really cool. I've played a lot of different sports and there is nothing else really like footy. Think of it like soccer crossed with football and played sorta like rugby. Certainly not a game for the meek, especially when you play in the ruck. Take for example this mornings league email:
"During the second game on Saturday Oakland's newly appointed captain Benny Atkins was suffered a leg injury. Today he went to the doctor and was diagnosed with a fractured fibula. That was the lovely cracking sound we heard as he went down. In some ways it is a blessing as the fracture was clean and should fully heal in 5 to 6 weeks. Certainly better than the knee injury we all feared but disappointing just the same. "
