Whilst looking for a few other stats I came across this.
Sporting news supplied some figures in 2017 on the distance covered by the average Australian footballer by code by game:
Super Rugby: 7kms a game
NRL: 7.2kms a game
A-League: 10kms a game
AFL:13kms a game
Rugby League, not a kicking game, comparatively not much of a running game either.
the mojority of the kms the league players do is plodding in a line uo the field with their team mates.
plus the sheer size of the playing surfaces that the players are required to cover is far greater in the af
What has how far someone runs, got to do with whether a sport is a real football code.
For a start AFL don't play their game on a football field. You play on a cricket field. Not a real football code.
Secondly AFL don't use proper goals with crossbars. Just 4 upright posts. Not a real football code.
Thirdly, real football does not reward stupidity. AFL gives you a point when you miss. Not a real football code.
Not only that, oval balls are not made to be bounced on the ground by hand.
This is so farkin stupid it is comical.
AFL players bouncing an oval ball is about as logical as driving a car with square wheels.
AFL is not even recognized as a football code outside Australia due to having no professional clubs overseas.
Also nobody wears a male netballers uniform to play football. That is what AFL players wear in games.
AFL just is'nt football. Is like an April fools joke lol.
