The Australian Football League has made history with the grand final finishing in a draw, the rules state that the game has to be replayed.

AFL Grand Final 2010 Who SAYS a DRAW isn't exciting


Quote
While this has been done in the VFL (Victorian Football League, the version of the AFL before it went national), it's never been done in the AFL.

It is required that the game must be played on the Saturday of the next week, this throws out everything. Seeing as this is the biggest sport in Australia, over 100,000 people attend the game and millions of people watch the final in 48 countries. Other sporting event dates are being moved to accommodate for the game.


The reason the game was so scrappy (not normally like that) is because it was so close. Know one wanted to let a score in, it's usually alot more fluid then that.

You were born and raised in NSW, that and QLD are the only states that actually like rugby. Considering AFL gets more of a crowd to a home and away match then the NRL does to the grand final I think it says it all right there.

AFL gets 85,000 + to a home and away games sometimes. You know the Collingwood vs Carlton/Essendon types. And that's all that League can get to a grand final.

During the season the best crowds that league get are 13,000 lmao.

NRL is great, but lets be serious, its not even close to the AFL.



also i'm glad a thread was made about this, it was the 2nd most exciting sporting event of the year, almost as exciting as the game 7 of the NBA finals.

Let's remember that American football didn't exist until the AFL came around!
