Why call 000 first? His injuries were far from life threatening. Take responsibility for your actions, iron chef, sounds like he got out just fine. Both those scenarios of evacuation you suggest cost other people's time and money.

At least he doesn't play gay mexican netball.

I had a sprained ankle moment a couple of years ago. I had an arvo bouldering at lindfield. The missus met me and we walked down the twin creeks track to middle harbour to go fishing. The clouds started building up around 9pm and it was time to go. The only bait we'd lost was to puffer fish. Moi the douche bag trips on a tree route and hears a crack. It was a long crawl to the station. Particuarly once it started pouring rain and I was constantly reminded that this was my idea and we couldn't walk faster because I am clumsey. I also got a tick.

Are you referring to the game where two of your League's finest couldn't even get near the ball on the weekend in their respective matches?

hehe I can't remember the last time AFL footballers were caught having group relations with just one token female to cover the real attraction to each other that was at play

Well the League boys should have been recruited for that competition. They might have had a chance then.

Soccer is a great game up to the level at which people feel like its worth diving in order to gain advantage. Social soccer = really good, Pro soccer = total ballbags trying for an oscar............I don't really watch much sport anyway, never got the point of watching other people do stuff.

I think AFL is a pretty cool game, too many players though. Running around for 2hrs to get 15 touches on the ball is a bit silly, they should do a smaller field/10 per side version.

Rugby union is all right. If only it wasn't full of dipshit, private school boofheads I might have a bit more time for it.

Rugby League............sigh! I just dona unnastand! Big boofhead pushes a ball out his arse, nother boofhead grabs it and runs straight ahead, bumps into a boofhead from the other team, both fall over, repeat 6 times then hand the ball to the opposition boofheads so they can have a turn.............repeat, repeat, so little potential for interesting developments

Meh, I've always found it pretty funny when fans of the retard game of League hack on soccer. You might as well be selling Shot Put as the "best game on earth", its about equally enthralling and just as fun to play.

I'm pretty sure that one of the Sydney based climbers used to play soccer for NZ, fairly good effort.

Good point. Soccer is fun to play at a social level, but it doesn't make for great viewing at professional level.

If Karmicheal Hunt had got 15 possessions, they would have been singing his praises. I've never thought of there being a problem with the game if I don't get many possessions, just a problem with me. And even if you are not touching the ball, you are still doing heaps of running, tackling, sheparding and contesting for the ball. It might make for a better spectacle if they did reduce the teams to 16 aside (instead of 18 players) as there wouldn't be so much congestion around the ball. The good thing about AFL is that they do adapt the rules to make the game even better. I get the impression that the rules of soccer are cast in stone.

I never completely understand the rules, but I enjoy watching Australia go into battle with another country in a genuinely tough and physical contest.

I agree - it's not surprising that a few of League's top players would rather play AFL.

So...........a real man's sport involves a bunch of blokes rolling around on the grass dry-rooting each other, or alternately a pair of blokes rolling around in a cage dry-rooting each other?

I hate UFC! It's a graphic demonstration of why 2 key principles of boxing were introduced;

-You need to ban wrestling and going to ground, because otherwise it degenerates to dry-rooting

-You need to introduce short rounds in order to get powerful, fast fighting........rather than 2 blokes who are so lactic that they couldn't punch out a kitten!

UFC will bring rounds in eventually, after everyone wakes up and realises how much the current form resembles gay porn!

So, as I understand it, the AFL management have an aggressive, expansionist vision. I have no problem with their aim of stealing fan base from rugby league. But paying someone 2 million bucks to switch codes and suck seems like a rather strange way to go about it........what were they thinking?

Yeah, I spose the off the ball bit of AFL is more involved and interesting than most other sports...........pretty impressive fighting for a ball with someone who has played aussie rules, they sure know how to fuch you over.

I just reckon that if you're on a field with a ball, you might as well get to touch ball rather than watch from 50m away as other guys play. I went over to indoor soccer for that very reason, you get 3 times as much ball for the same ammount of running. If you're on a field for 2 hours with 35 other players, your fair share of ball is probably only 2 or 3 minutes!

Yeah, it is an interesting approach. I suppose the publicity it generates is certainly worth something. It would be the equivalent of taking a top level gymnast and expecting them to become a top level climber or vice versa. The chances of them pulling it off would be extremely unlikely.

I feel for Tassie though. They get a raw deal given the AFL don't support the establishment of a bonafide team for that state. Supposedly Tasmania doesn't have the population for it to work financially, but I question the judgement in that given how many millions of $$$ it will take to prop up a team in Western Sydney.

I dont watch league either. dont really get a game where you go forward and pass the ball backwards. and where i lived as a kid union was always a game that rich private school boys played. i know its very un-australian of me. i dont like watching cricket either.

The UFC has had rounds since the mid 90's. The first few events didn't have rounds (much like the events in Japan didn't when they started) and they were some of the most boring fights you have ever seen, even watched in fast forward.

I dont think its a case of "rather play"...more a case of "If your gonna pay 2 million to run around and not touch a ball...Ill give it a go"

Hunt and Falou were both good league players but despite whatever has been said in the papers not the best. Hunt was a fullback behind a great side and Falou a winger who got to catch balls kicked straight to his chest kicked by one of the greats...both went to AFL when there ego's got bigger than the pay packets they could get from NRL and AFL were dumb enough to pay it.

The AFL is just trying to take short cuts into NRL heartland which hasn't paid off.

Fair point on Hunt and Falou. Now if the AFL got Billy Slater to switch codes that would be a coup. He actually makes League watchable. I suspect he has the sort of skills and game sense that would transfer well to AFL.

How did busted ankles move onto the merits of football codes? This must be an all time record for thread diversion on a climbign website...
