 Australian Rules Football: Point Me To It!!!
Australian football, which is also known as Australian Rules Football, or less formally as "Aussie Rules" or simply as "Footy" is a code of football which originated in Melbourne, Australia.
The game is also distinguished from other games by the fast, relatively free movement of the ball (partly due to the absence of an offside rule) and the awarding of a free kick for any clean catch — known as a mark — of a ball which has been kicked more than 15 meters.
Although it is a winter sport, pre-season competitions usually begin in late February (that is, in the Australian summer); the football season proper is from March to August, with finals being held in September.
