The team with the Australian kicker will win.

This Australian kicker comes from Aussie Rules or AFL.

AFL is for more gentle men. Due to gentileness, it is sometime called GFL.

But AFL is tougher than the NFL so the team with the AFL player should win.

Below is a typical GFL player.

For Boom Boom

Jokes aside, as a bit of a footy star & tactician in a past life, despite its delays, I used to be fascinated by the tactical aspect of NFL.

It was a great game to watch. I hope your team won.

Kind regards

The Super Bowl is really fun to watch with a group of people, but on my own out here in Japan i always seem to find out about it after the game is already over. I just found out that it was today when i woke up this morning. Haven't watched a game i think since the 49er's won, in... maybe.... 1990?

Greetings,

I can't appreciate any sport that doesn't involve some variety of tactics... and there's only one sport that really interest me, probably on account of the veritable multitude of tactics and that's cricket.

A game so seemingly boring to the uninstructed observer, yet it appears 2nd on that earlier list of the world's favourite sports.... there must be something to it.

Metta,
Retro. :)

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Hooligans haha. The sport of gentleman? Haha. What a great game last night! Awesome! Its a shame some here missed a great game. I respect rugby its just not my cup of tea. And as for the brainwashing quote it sounds as if some here have been brainwashed with rugby because no one here in america can see how its entertaining. Hey it goes both ways! And heres a link for anyone who says theres no tactic's in football. Go raiders!!!
