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 Mexican Donkey Show.

Scores are earned by kicking the ball between 4 posts at either end of the ground, yes 4. A player earns 6 points (a goal) for kicking the ball between the two highest posts in the centre of the 4 posts, and he scores 1 point (a behind) for missing the big posts but still managing to not miss all the posts.

Talent and co-ordination are not requirements to play Australian Rules Football. It is slightly tougher than Draughts but a smidgeon under Backgammon in toughness.

It is a game adored by 1/2 the country and hated by the other half. The collective IQ of the former is 12.

Hate Australian Rules Football even if you've never seen a game, it saves time later on.

The greatest and most popular sport in history with more than 5 times the TV audience of the next most popular (cricket - every radio and TV in the sub-continent is permanently tuned to Pakistan/India cricket matches - that's a big audience).

Only Americans call it 'soccer' owing to their vast ignorance of what goes on outside their national boundaries and the misnomer which has them thinking than a corruption of rugby, with all the danger and most of the skill removed can also be called 'football'.

'The Beautiful Game' can be played anywhere, on almost any surface, by any number of players, for almost any length of time. And is. There is no country on earth that doesn't play. It has inspired more passion, more courage and more excitement than any other sport in history and dwarfs everything else.
Football is, without question, the defining sporting activity of the human race.

According to a study by Sydney's Macquarie Univerity, you are more likely to get stabbed going to one game of Aussie Rules a year, than you are if you go to a nightclub every Saturday night for a year.

Thankfully the AFL-friendly media here in Australia manage to do a good job of covering this up.
Person1: Dude, Michelle got stabbed yesterday!
Person2: Thats what you get for taking her to the Australian Rules Football.

A sport in Australia, somewhat close to rugby. It is an overall, sport of doom. It gives men a wide-open space in which to kill each other in a legal fashion. Very entertaining, it is the most intense (and confusing) sport you will ever watch!!
you're as intense as Australian Football!

Australian Rules (or australian football) is a REAL sport, the only protection footy players wear is a mouthguard, unlike those americans who have to wear padding. It is entertaining to watch and requires skill, unlike people who have an IQ of 2, and those gay american footballers and rugby players who will find any excuse to jump all over eachother.
The adelaide crows are the best team in the Australian Rules competition. 2010 premiership is ours boys

a sport played in melbourne, a poor excuse of a city which is a copy of sydney, its main game is gayfl (afl) which hardly constitutes as football compared to league, union and american rules where there are tackles and real men.
poofs running around in singlets fumbling their balls all the time calling for marks so they dont get tackled and wreck their nice hair.

not to mention that the sadest part about this sport is the fact melbourne teams havent won a premiership in like 6 years.
im gonna root for my team in the gayfl once u took ur penis out of my ass.

A city located in Victoria, Australia. Not many people know that it was founded by the bounty-hunter John Batman in the mid 1800's. Its the second most populated city in Australia and is about half the size of London.
Melbourne is really cold
