If we have to replace football, I say replace it with Gaelic Football.....after seeing some YouTube videos, I am shocked the game never took off outside of the Irish Diaspora.
Or simple Rugby. That’s a rough sport to play, when done right.
Wow I was going to post that Australian rules football [NOT rugby] is a great game - then I saw the Gaelic football video.
They are about exactly the same. Aussie rules has an oblong ball [not pointy like our gridiron footballs], not completely round. And in Aussie rules, the scoring is done by putting the ball thru uprights [center uprights 6, outer uprights 1.]
But the rules are about the same it looks like. In Aussie rules, a kicked ball that is caught earns a free kick [or one may play on] but I didn’t see that in Gaelic.
Aussie rules you have to bounce the ball every 10 meters, can only punch or kick the ball to someone [no throwing.]
Looks cool and thanks for sharing the link.
