Bucfan, you can see Aussie Rules Football online for free at ESPN3. They broadcast games live Friday, Saturday, and Sunday:

Friday July 16 6:30 AM - Adelaide Crows vs. Geelong Cats

I love this channel. They show everything from cricket to spelling bees.

Love Aussie rules. Actually played in an organized game once in college.

My favorite part is when the ref signals a goal with the two guns.

And they have the nerve to call football (soccer) "The beautiful Game"!

As a showcase for the game, that final was a disgrace and a turn-off.

The Dutch deserved to have at least 3 players sent off. The Ref was obviously trying to avoid a WC Final with 8 players playing 9. He did a fine job in trying conditions. The players showed no respect for either the rules or the spirit of the game.

Perhaps they should think of changing the rules and having a Sin Bin, where players who commit fouls or dives etc., and currently might just receive a yellow card, are sent for a length of time.

I'm with you Bertie. That was a terrible display for a final of this magnitude.

That said, it is the same for most Super Bowls.
