Talking about AFL, my daughter just sent me this in case some haven't seen

The game of Oz Footie is unique in a number of ways.

The players add depth to its appeal with insights and observations
much in the vein of the following:

"I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father." (Shane

"Nobody in football should be called a genius.  A genius is a guy like
Norman Einstein." Mick Malthouse - Collingwood

"I'm going to graduate on time, no matter how long it takes."
Peter Bell -  Fremantle on his University Law studies.

"You guys line up alphabetically by height," and "you guys pair up in
groups of three, then line up in a circle."
Barry Hall Sydney Captain at training.

Brock Maclean (Melbourne) on whether he had visited the Pyramids during
his visit to Egypt: "I can't really remember the names of the clubs that we
went to."

"He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what
time it is. "Kevin Sheedy on James Hird.

Jonathan Brown, on night Grand Finals vs Day Games "It's basically the
same, just darker."

Ron Barassi talking about Gary Cowton "I told him, 'Son, what is it with
you. Is it ignorance or apathy?'  He said, Barass, I don't know and I don't

Barry Hall (Sydney) when asked about the upcoming season:
"I want to kick 70 or 80 goals this season, whichever comes first."

"Luke Hodge - the 21 year old, who turned 22 a few weeks ago." (Dermott

"Chad had done a bit of mental arithmetic with a calculator." (Mark

"He scored that goal after only 22 seconds - totally against the run of
play." (Dermott Brereton)

"We actually got the winning goal three minutes from the end but then
they scored." (Ben Cousins, West Coast Eagles)

"I've never had major knee surgery on any other part of my body."  (Luke

"That kick was absolutely unique, except for the one before it which was
identical." (Dermott Brereton)

"Sure there have been injuries and deaths in football - but none of them
serious."  (Adrian Anderson)

"If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing
again."  (Andrew Demetriou)

"I would not say he (Chris Judd) is the best centreman in the AFL, but
there are none better." (Dermott Brereton)

"I never comment on umpires and I'm not going to break the habit of a
lifetime for that prat." (Terry Wallace)

Garry Lyon: "Have you ever thought of writing your autobiography?"
David Swartz: "On what?"

"Well, either side could win it, or it could be a draw."  (Dermott

"Strangely, in slow motion replay, the ball seemed to hang in the air
for even longer."  (Dermott Brereton)
