    yeah, there's something about the hockey girls i see walking around london on their way home from a match. thighs like tree trunks with a hockey stick slung over their shoulder, a head band and maybe a bit of strapping round one of their knees, oh yeah, that does it for me. toilet break i think*

    You get loads of wierd sports on eurosports, like i watching it this one time and australian football (or something along those lines, i know it was australian.) came on, its proper violent man. Funny as hell to watch. Its like a cross between football, rugby & american football with basicly no rules. They were proper going at each other arms swinging, the lot. :lol:
    Windmilling in. :rofl:
    Anyone who hasnt seen it should search it down, its well good.

    Sure your on about aussie rules football.....

    from wikipedia

    Australian rules football, Australian football, Aussie rules, or simply "football" or "footy" is a team sport played between two teams of 18 players with a ball in the shape of a prolate spheroid. It is a football variant played outdoors on large oval shaped grass fields (often also used as a cricket ground), with four goal posts at each end.

    The primary aim of the game is to score goals (worth six points) by kicking the ball between the middle two posts of the opposing goal. The winner is the team who has the higher total score when time-on expires in the final quarter.[1] If the score is tied at the end of the game, then a draw is declared.

    Players may use any part of their body to advance the ball, however the primary methods are kicking, handballing and running with the ball. There are restrictions on how the ball can be handled, for example players running with the ball must intermittently bounce or touch it on the ground, throwing the ball is not allowed and players must not get caught holding the ball. There is no offside rule and players can roam the field freely. Possession of the ball is in dispute at all times except when a free kick is paid. A distinctive feature of the game is the mark, where players anywhere on the field who catch a ball from a kick (with specific conditions), are awarded a free kick[2]. Australian rules is a contact sport in which players can tackle using their hands or use their whole body to obstruct opponents. Dangerous physical contact (such as a pushing an opponent in the back), interference when marking and deliberately slowing the play are discouraged with free kicks, distance penalties or suspension, depending on the seriousness of the infringement. Frequent physical contests, aerial marking or "speckies", scoring and fast movement of both players and the ball are the game's main attributes as a spectator sport

    I didnt say i was a big fan did i. Ive only watched it a few times and it is still violent compared to alot of sports & from only a few watches it looks like there are very little rules. Obviously there are rules or the sport wouldnt work.
