INTRODUCING .....ugh.... Footbrawl.
I just fucking typed.... f o o t b r a w l.

For the decrepit fans of X-Arm.....here ya go.
A sport where you can run with the ball, kick it, pass it, throw it to who ever whenever, judo toss an opposing team member then proceed to ne-waza the fuck out of them while all the while not giving a fuck anymore about the ball and then having an American Gladiator start hitting you.....

wait what..?

Sounds like an ill-conceived sport out of a bad post-apocalypse novel.

Jesus christ,

 

full retard mode. I already thought Aussie rules football was a little wacky (had the pleasure of visiting a game the last time i was in Sydney....i am a big football fan,a decent Rugby fan but Aussie rules was just a little to weird) mainly because the flow of the game really did not work for me with all the different aspects.

 

This makes Aussie rules look focused. There is way to much going on and hence it just chaotic.

 

It sounds like an awesome idea. It looks like some fun exercise some crazy dudes do in an MMA gym after the training. Funny but not a sport.

calcio storico is pretty awesome because it is keeping alive the traditional way football was played. Football developed all over the world but European football originally involved wrestling and boxing and was used as way for Germanic and Celtic tribes to keep their warriors in fighting shape long before professional soldiers became common.

Footbrawl on the otherhand looks like it is trying too hard and seems to be basically an adult version of the type of lunchtime football game that was commonly played in Australian elementary and high schools before the crackdown on dangerous school activities. Rugby league/union takes too much organisation for a lunchtime game and soccer still didn't have much mainstream popularity in Australia in those days due to the lack of contact so we used to play a mix of both. It looked a lot like that footbrawl video minus the lame gladiator style wifflebats. There was no punching but tackling and wrestling was allowed so it was a pretty fun game and my guess is those guys were trying (and failing) to make their own hardcore version of it.

Fucking hilarious. It needs soccer kicks to the head of a downed opponent though. All of those guys need to be kicked in the head while some other dumbass has the back. Thats the only way to put an end to the madness. Also, who needs another sport with Foot in the name when they're rarely allowed to use their feet.
