A sport that is played in Australia.
There are 36 players on the field, 18 per side.
There are two ways to score points, either kick it through the posts in middle, and gain six points, but if you miss and only get it through the posts at the side, you only get one point, and the other team gets a free kick.
Australian Rules Football has been played in Australia since 1858, and the Australian Football League first begun in 1897.
It is currently played in Western Australian (West Coast Eagles, Fremantle Dockers), South Australia (Adelaide Crows, Port Power), Victoria (Geelong Cats, Essendon Bombers, North Melbourne Kangaroos, Carlton Blues, Melbourne Demons, Collingwood Magpies, Richmond Tigers, Hawthorn Hawks, St Kilda Saints), New South Wales (Sydney Swans) and Queensland (Brisband Lions).
"Did you see the AFL last night?"
"Who was playing?"
"Crows played the Power, great game."
Its a confused idea of soccer, football...and mad men running in porno shorts
"...they get free kicks for pushing in the back, but when they take marks they can jump on ppls backs. I'll never learn all the AFL rules"

Short for Australian Football League, an obscure suburban sport played in southern areas of Australia. Previously called the Victorian Football League, or Victorian Rules Football.
Before each game, teams must run through banners constructed entirely of toilet paper and clag glue and containing messages such as 'Go the Roo Boys' or other such crap.
Playing uniform is similarly macabre. Each player must wear a singlet, shoes, socks and shorts so tight, if they were any tighter they'd need bowel surgery to remove them.
AFL is the only sport in the world which rewards people for failure, with one point given for missing a shot at goal, or hitting one of the large goal posts, or if an opposing player runs the ball between the goals.
Despite what any AFL follower will tell you, it is slightly above watching grass grow in terms of an entertainment spectacle. It does not have any significant following outside of the Australian states of Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania, with the more open-minded Australians (i.e. New South Wales and Queensland) preferring Rugby League and Rugby Union. Even drawf-tossing is more popular in these states.
The first International AFL World Cup was held in 2003 in Melbourne. There were more players on the field than spectators in the stands. Nobody remembers who won. Nauru are a powerhouse in World AFL, as well as Denmark, who hold the non-Australian attendance record for a game of AFL - 62. (That's sixty-two, n...
AFL - acronym for Australian Football League, the governing body of Australian Rules Football.
Australian Rules Football is a regionally stunted game played primarily for and by rampant non-heterosexuals in the Southern States of Australia. The AFL is a conglomeration of blind lepers who have unnerving control over the sporting minds of ½ the population.
The game itself begins when two teams of 18 limp-wristed nancy boys run onto an oval through a 40 foot high banner made of toilet paper which has messages of love from their fans painted in it in various shades of lipstick. Running though the banner is the zenith of anyone's Australian Rules Football experience.
Prior to the game's commencement but after the "running of the banner" each side gathers in a group and runs around the oval to warm up. This is commonly known as a "melee" and is the first of many over the approximately 120 minutes the game takes.
Once the game starts at the sound of a hooter that would arouse a Moose, the ball (similar to a Gridiron ball, but less heterosexual) is bounced by a prat in a dangerously loud shirt called the "umpy". The main vocation of the umpy is to spend the game listening to 40,000 lispers calling out "ball". Most umpys are thankful that the word "ball" has no S in it.
From the first bounce until the end of the game there is a 100 minute game consisting of the aforementioned 36 men attempting to do things to each other that would be considered outrageous at a Mexica...
Stands for away from life, used to describe people such as nerds who never leave their computer, people who shun all others, etc.
The whole summer I've been AFL dotaing so that I could be as good as Stoli :(
36 grown men wrestling in the mud whilst wearing short shorts. There are 73 balls in play.
They are cheered on by drunken homosexuals and perverted old women.
"AFL is the male version of hot oil wrestling."
The poofiest sport in Australia were if you throw a punch, your contract will be terminated

A game only recognised in that state called victoria which is the only sport that rewards useless pricks for missing a goal, who can't make it at rugby because they lack the skill, passion, spirit and masculinity that other sports around the world posess.
