I knew RichAndAmy by another name

by NickNielsen In reply to pssttt

Frank, one of my roommates when I still lived in the barracks met his future wife, Vickie, and the two became inseparable away from work.

Yep, you guessed it. FrankenVickie. Frank had a sense of humor about it; Vickie, as I recall, didn't.

Just had the grand final, and it was a draw. So the plan is, instead of doing the clever thing and allowing overtime, they're scheduling a second grand final.
Talk about money pinching.

Now there's some brawlin!

by Oz_Media In reply to AFL

AFL makes hockey look like a sport for Girl Guides.

Sure they wear some leather shoulder pads, but the game hardly stops, like rugby.

Football, North American Style, is a game of stops and starts, a few minutes on the field at a time and only seconds playing each play.

people's defenses are the giys are HUGE, they hit HARD, etc. Yeah, and so are Aussies rules guys, without the extra kevlar body armor, helmets etc.

If North America had Aussie rules football, what we deem football would be quickly called a game for sissies. but as NFL and CFL is all we have here, it is "the man's" game.

LOL, gotta love national pride resulting in such a defensive mentality.

I'd LOVE to see any NFL or CFL team drop the pads in the locker room and take on St, Kilda or Collingwood.

Differs with the demand. And AFL requires a higher cardio fitness whereas NFL/CFL seems to require ground to opponent strength. Short bursts of power.
I'd say that Soccer would also require a high cardio fotness as well. But seeing the players, they are hardly as built in the upper body, so perhaps the cardio demand is even higher.

Rugby and the NFL/CFL really are similar in their physical demands, as there are many stop/starts, but they throw the ball backward so it takes much longer to get the ball across the line.

I never was very good at sports, but I was unfit as a kid so it never suited me. Now, however, my fitness has increased somewhat, so I may enjoy it a little more.

Haha, I could imagine the difficulty in the NFL/CFL players trying to get their heads around the need to bounce the ball whilst moving!

Is both. Receivers have very high cardio, less bulk. Defensive lines, tackles etc. are generally enormous men (I mean MASSIVE) that are often grossly obese, live on 30 burgers a day and are strictly MASS TO BE MOVED by the opponent.

Sure they are all athletes that excel in specific areas, but as for tough guys? AFL players would walk all over most football players without their pads on.

Speaking of pads, what do crack whores and a hockey goalies have in common?

Not tellin' ya THAT one online. LOL
