Aussie Rules Football (AFL) is an underrated sport

It is the most epic shit show you have ever seen. I was once watching a game and there was a man down on the field getting stretchered out and the just played on, kicked the ball right over him like he and the medical staff weren’t even there.

Any AFL fans in the house?

I can’t remember exactly when blood rules and concussion rules came into effect but as a kid watching in the 80s I have clear memories of guys with open head wounds playing on like it was an MMA fight.
If you could stand then you were playing!

A lot of us Aussies, especially from Queensland, can’t stand that shit game.
Mind you I can’t even be fucked to watch the rugby league these day’s.

What are the major rivalries? I like two teams but would have to drop one if they are rivals.
