Default Australian Rules Football 2012

If you've never watched a match, give it a shot -- for my money, it's the most entertaining thing on TV. TSN2 just released the schedule for this year:

Only unfortunate thing is that most of the matches they're showing are in the middle of the night. A couple of years back, they would show a live match at 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturday nights.

If you need any convincing to PVR it sometime, here are a couple fun facts:

1. When the ball goes out of bounds, the referee has to face away from the field and throw the ball backwards over his head back into play! and
2. There are seagulls.

I'm a huge Aussie Rules fan. I was sweating over the winter that AFANA wouldn't be able to get a deal with a Canadian TV network. I'd still love to see all the games live in Canada, but at least the Monday morning highlights show will allow me to see Port Adelaide highlights.

The best part of Aussie Rules, now that goal umpires wear regular uniforms instead of the hat and coat, is when a goal is kicked from beyond the 50. The announcers go nuts when that happens.

Thanks for the link. Looks a strong schedule this year.

I wish we could get more games. I tried the pay streaming service but the video quality is really poor.
