Rugby Aussie Rules Football Players Are Insane Badasses

Not that you didn't already know that, but seriously how crazy is this video???

I don't know about you, but if I from six feet in the air and landed on my back....I wouldn't be getting up for about 5 days (if at all).

Years ago, we had a club team here that was started by a family friend. I saw guys literally dislocate and break arms and stay in the game. Rugby players have a screw(or twelve) loose, no doubt about it .

That's Aussie Rules Football, perhaps my favorite sport on this planet. I dreamed of playing that when I was a kid and it was all ESPN could afford to broadcast.

And they say the US is an extremely ultrahighsuper violent society.

See all those people clapping?

Most common sight at rugby matches: people on crutches standing around a keg.

Already said, but it's not rugby, it's Aussie Rules.

Still cool, though.

Aussie Rules is the last real man's sport left. No pads and real hitting. About 20+ years ago there was talk of bringing two teams over to the LA Coliseum to play a match. There was a rather large quake and that kind of ended that idea. What a great game that ESPN should be showing instead of poker.

The best part is that he wanted to stay down and catch his breath but his teammates pulled him up.

"Give me a sec, mate."

"Don't be a pussy, Bruce, on yer feet."

No one should ever confuse this great game with rugby. This is aussie rules football, a sport much better than rugby. Rugby is for fat men who just run forward. This sport requires skill. Great clip btw
