How the Firetruck did Gaelic make the list??????
Every country in SE Asia has an AFL team and I play for the Malaysian one, since we only play other AFL teams maybe once a month we play against the local Gaelic team every few weeks, we play International rules and when they have a Gaelic tourny we also play in that. They dont even bump let alone tackle in pure Gaelic, in fact its against the rules. Its players may be hard but the game is pretty much as soft as Soccer.
Your obviously biased as anyone with half a brain knows AFL is the worlds toughest sport

They dont have to work. Those Gealic footy guys are semi-pro and I love that they always hold their own. I always cheer for them.
And yes,I am biased,I live in NSW. We dont think much of AFL around here. Alot of people call it 'aerial ping pong'. Ever notice they never punch each other? They just grab jumpers and push. Not many Pluggers in the AFL.
I will admit,those unintentional,accidental high speed collisions are pretty brutal at times. In league we look for contact.
