September 25, 2012 by The Battle of Football
The battle field, a patch of grass. Each side with eleven players, each with their own special quality whether it be leadership, defensive tactical awareness, quick thinking or the ability to never miss a shot.
Throughout history, football has been a game which has brought nations together, created healthy (and unhealthy) rivalries and even pulled friendships, families, political parties and nations apart. It is a wonder how a round ball can do so much good and so much harm at the same time.
This blog has been created as a place to discuss the power of football, focusing on the Australian game. With a country still searching for an identity and style, Australian football continues to put smiles on faces, provide glimmers of hope and turn a grown man’s hair grey over night. It is this range of emotions that can turn a non-fan into a fanatic in just seconds.
Football is an addiction that is impossible to get rid of.
It is time, get ready for battle.
