Yeah, the dad figuring he's done enough teaching, the lad's gotta be able to do this by himself ... I left a lot of negative space out to the RHS.

No, both the Sydneee teams...so i gota sit on the fence when they play the Derby.

Highlight of the season though is seeing them visit Mexico and bring back the 3 points....ha ha

That Day out looked cool(as in cold)....great shots, definitely captured the atmosphere.

Mixed AFL is news to me, i think its more appropriate than either of the Rugby codes....they definitely aint games for girls.

Wasted space, clackers. Unless he keeps his eye on the ball he will miskick or miss completely.

Cardboard hat guy might be my favourite.

Looks like a wild time. I actually watched Aussie Rules football on TV for a few months. I didn't follow any teams, just found the overall chaos and speed of the game fascinating.

There are underlying structures to the styles teams play with, Brian, but yes, there's a lot of jumping, tackling and ramming done without padding or helmets.

These players are from the local arts community - it's a match pitching radio station staff versus independent musicians, so Bohemian attitude is vital, athleticism - not so important.

Of that I have no doubt! "Organized chaos" may have been a better term, where I just couldn't quite grok the underlying organization but the overall flow and rhythm was still pretty to watch. Certainly far far more than just large fast people randomly crashing around.

Yeah, my team (Essendon) have limped into the 'playoffs' by a system of short kicking out of defence into the congestion on either side of the ground, then one of about six individuals is trusted for a risky 45 degree angled kick back into the centre, where it should then be really freeflowing all the way towards the goals. It's a risk because if the kick isn't perfect, or the skill of the receiver isn't up to it, an interception means the opposition now has a freeflowing run back into our goals.

As a spectator, this is hair-raising stuff, because sometimes from up in the stands you can anticipate the error before the players do!

I went to a hockey game in Montreal once (Canadiens v Chicago Black Hawks). That was quite a memorable experience. The speed was amazing - almost too fast to watch. Maybe it was better suited to TV. Aussie Rules is great to watch at the ground because you can see the play unfolding, like in the way Clackers describes the Bombers' game.

My Montreal friend thought Aussie Rules that she saw on TV was hilarious. She loved the goal umpires waving flags to signal a goal.

Nice variant of "Street Photography" - people acting normally in a usual environment
