Something is happening at Kotaku HQ. All the men and women who work here that don't necessarily like video games (and some who do) are talking about the sports balls. They're talking about the AFL and the Rugby League. As someone who only really likes the soccer ball version of sports ball, I'm confused. What are the kinds of sports ball that you like to shout at?
I thought I'd just chuck it out there as a broad topic: are there any teams you support? Do you watch Rugby League or AFL? Which do you prefer?
I've actually gone to a couple of matches here and there — I went to watch the Parramatta Eels play since I live within walking distance of their stadium. I've also gone to see the Sydney Swans play a couple of times. Personally, if I had to choose between the two, I think I enjoyed AFL most mainly because Rugby League felt a little too much like two lines of human flesh colliding into one another constantly for 80 minutes. But yeah... that's just my completely uneducated opinion!
I think I could get behind AFL, it seems like there's a lot of skill to it, and the pacing often feels a little bit like soccer, which I love.
