Massive fan of ice-hockey a group of about 6 of us fell in love with NHL after discovering it on xbox! Now we each have our own teams and fantasy league's and can't get enough of it... if only they'd play an exhibition match here! We've even planned a trip to Canada next year to watch a game a habs canucks game we love it so much!
Our national sport is AFL, awesome game also. We play using an oval shaped ball. The aim is to basically kick goals... passing the ball by either hand or foot, and you can mark the ball if passed by foot. You're allowed to dispose the person of the ball by either tackling them or what we call a hip-and-shoulder (think of it as a forecheck using the side of your body to the side of theirs!). There's a bit more to it but that's the basics. Here's some pics, or check out http://www.afl.com.au
