Yes indeed, here in the great southern land it is referred to as FOOTY!!!!!!

Careful GD or we'll claim you as an honorary Aussie like we do with just about anyone who has heard the first three bars of Waltzing Matilda. Yep 30 min quarters of kicking, hand passing, marking (catching), tackling and running (some of our on-ball players can notch up 30 to 40 km's a game)........in fact, this has just reminded me of why I gave up playing!
