But could someone explain Aussie Football to me? Not trying to be a wise guy or anything like that but I don't really understand and would like to get the basic concept.

Thanks.

From a US Aussie Rules Club --- (Noticed you are linked with a NFL forum)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Australian Rules Football. Maybe you've seen it, maybe you haven't. You could mistake it for rugby, but it's nothing like rugby, or you could've seen it late at night on ESPN during the eighties, but it's not as violent as it was made out to be. Commonly referred to as Aussie Rules, or footy, it is a fast moving, action packed game, requiring many of the skills found in rugby, basketball, soccer, hockey and a few others thrown in for good measure.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pretty good description from a neutral point of view. -It does look a bit chaotic at first . Why no OFFSIDE. Player numbers are not set positions as in other sports. They can go anywhere. US players call it the 360 degree game. Body contact from any direction.

The guy originally asked the question about Aussie Rules. Posters are not allowed to refer to other sites on here for info purposes. So gave an example description of the sport off a US Aussie Rules web site. Looks like he has disappeared anyhow.
Why dont you give your description of the sport or are you just trolling.

It's not hard at all to follow, but it's much easier live because the spaces are so big. Despite the chaotic look, there are very well rehearsed tactics, centred around hard running and precise positioning and movement of players in this very big area...

18 on a team, 4 subs who can be used anytime, you pass to a teammate by kicking a drop punt (usually) or the handpass (hold the ball in one hand and punch it with the other, you can't throw), and you have to kick it through the posts. Kick it through the two big middle ones and you get 6 points (a goal), through either of the side areas you get 1 (a behind). A typical score might be 12 goals 6 behinds, written as 12.6 (7Cool (12x6+6=7Cool.

- No offside
- You can run with the ball for 15 metres and then you have to bounce it or touch the ground with it to be allowed to continue doing it.
- A player can be shepherded, bumped, smashed (!) off the ball if the ball is within a 5 metre vicinity when it happens and doesn't violate...
- ...tackling and rough play rules - no touching of the head or top of the shoulder, no raised elbows, no tripping (tackling below the knees)
- When the ball bounces out of bounds, a boundary umpire throws it back in over his head, unless the ball is kicked out on the full, in which case it is a free kick to the other side. The defenders kick in after a behind from the goal square, like soccer.
- The "kickoff" is a bouncing of the ball, contested by a tall player from either side, who taps it to teammates. This is also done whenever there is a "ball-up" around the ground (a stalemate when neither side can wrestle the ball off each other in a congested group tackle, and neither has given away a free kick).

Bit late, but if you read this, hope it helps...
