just out of curiousity have any of our members played NFL properly? I know in australia the sport is VERY small but back when i was 15 i played for a club for a year in Brownsplains Brisbane Queensland. Back at the time i thought it would be interesting to play. Eventually though i got bored of it as the competition wasnt that broad but i must say the sport is quite fun to play if you get into it.

Yer I play sometimes with my mates at the Park. My dad Created and played for the Gold Coast Stingrays Gridiron Club and my uncle played for Australia. I know a few people who play including a kid in my footy team who plays CB for Sydney University.

The Quality here is really bad tho, it is fun but there are literally 3 pass attempts a game so it is all RunnigBacks. I would like to play QB as my mates say im pretty good at it but not much would happen if I did play there. I might play next year or the year after when nothing is really going for me in Rugby League

Hey mate, does that mean you live near there?
I live 5 mins away from there...

I have played a couple of times at school, nothing much.

Is ONE gonna broadcast NFL? If so, I'd say the sports popularity will grow in Aus.

The NZ team came to our school in year 10 and our second and third fifteens had a game against each other with all the proper gear and shit.

It was pretty cool. The biggest hits hardly even hurt with all that protection though pretty soft sport if you ask me

What teams will you play against?

My American mate plays CB for University of Sydney and is playing his Grand Final against Bondi tomorrow. Im thinking of playing next year but dont know where as a QB would get literally 4 pass attempts a game.

its just random teams in canberra.

the team i might be signing up for lost in the grand final last year.

their only problem with the team is that they dont have any good wide recievers.

when my mate told the coach that im pretty good at it he wants me to sign up straight away.

im thinking i might but it will take a while to get used too

Play for the Stingrays Hank, my dad created the team and they have won the Sunbowl (Grand Final) for the last three years. My dad currently holds the record for most TD's in a season, it says on the website. The coach is also really good (My Mums' cousin) as he doesnt just run the ball all day like teams down here and actually gives the QB more than 20 pass attempts a game. The QB is the backup Australian QB too.

Nah I live in Sydney but you probably wont want to play for the Stingrays, they are from the Gold Coast. But they are probably the most successful Gridiron club Australia.
