Aussie Rules Football

This is the chimney stack at the West End Brewery at Hindmarsh.

Each year after the Grand Final in the local football competition, the colours of the winning teams are painted on it. Last year's winner was Central District (red, white & blue) who defeated North Adelaide (red & white) in the grand final.

In addition to the nine teams in the SANFL (South Australian National Football League), there are two teams in the AFL (Australian Football League).

Football season is upon us - the AFL commenced last weekend and SANFL's season starts this coming weekend.

I will post more about Aussie Rules footy at a later date.

I've watched it on television once or twice, but find that it is tactically bereft, but physically demanding.

I had a serious spot of bother taking my last picture, it was very unpleasant.

What a great idea. We occasionally see games on the television. What an amazing sport.
