AFL 101:

As explained by Prof Flav-eresa

AFL 101
With Prof Flav-eresa

Carlton or Richmond?
Black and gold or blue and white?

Notes taken during Aussie-Rules Football League game televised Friday night, in preparation for the live AFL game we were scheduled to see on Saturday.

Different from Rugby or soccer.
Rugby can score by running in the ball, Aussie Rules must kick it, and Soccer is soccer.
Rugby is most physical.

18 teams. 2 in each of states except Tasmania has none And neither does Northern Territory and Victoria has rest (10). Used to be vfl Victorian football league until 30 yrs ago when it morphed into afl Australia-rules football.
9 games a week. 3 games each fri, sat, sun.
22 games a season plus playoffs.
No helmets, no padding. Waxed legs.

Flavio roots for Richmond. Teresa for Carlton. Each has taken two kin. A family divided.
